So a treeless, if you can find one second hand, might be your best answer for the short term. If you're going to be doing dressage, I don't think you'll want one for the long haul but buying a Patrick or some other brand that's fairly pricey but fits, would be a save up for it project.

I just like my legs down straight under me. I trail ride, no shows or anything like that. =)

Possibly. But I don't like the over padded squishy types and I want to be able to use the stirrups for posting. =/
Been hoping to find a cheap Bob Marshall type, but with the right gullet angle.

I saw a hilason in person, besides the plastic-like leather, it wasn't bad, but gullet way too wide.

There was a Bob Marshall in another store recently, used, but massive seat!
