Agreed! I don't do dressage, I'd say my 'style' is more 'western' than 'english', but due to saddle styles I'd prefer just not fitting my horse, he has a Wintec dressage & I love it. Only prob is lack of D rings, for attaching saddlebags - I had to pull it apart & put some on myself.

My treed saddle now is a Tucker Plantation. I think it's sort of a cross between English and western. It's a very comfy saddle and not too long...or heavy. I also have a Black Forest treeless. I do like it a lot EXCEPT it's best to use a mounting block or a log , big rock or stump if you have to dismount on the trail and want to get back on, unless you are really springy and can jump. It's also not great if your horse is reactionary, if you get my drift.
I'm not springy anymore, and my horse is reactionary, but the treeless stays put
