Treeless saddles
 
I'm not sure if this is the right category to place this question in, but I didn't find a more appropriate place... :?

I am looking to buy a treeless saddle... I was pretty sure I wanted a Bob Marshall, and ordered one, but there were complications and I never received my saddle. :cry: Anyway, I've been searching on eBay for a Bob Marshall treeless and also found another company that does treeless saddles--Hilason. I was hoping a few horse people experienced with treeless saddles could tell me the pros and cons of both brands; and if anyone has ridden in both, if they could tell me which one they preferred or if they don't have a preference and why.

Also, what about the Circle Y Bob Marshall treeless? A friend of mine told me to stay away from those kind, but why?

Any information you could give me would be fabulous! Thanks!!!

Treeless saddles
 
I have never ridden in one, but cons I've heard are support issues and a tendancy to slip if you are not a balanced rider. I have also heard that heavy weight riders do better with a treed saddle. I personally would not want one, but if you're looking for a used one, try www.endurance.net in the classified section--there're a couple in there for sale right now. Let us know how you like it if you decide to buy one.
