Hey guys I wanted to know what you guys thought about this type of saddle. I went to visit my horse at his previous owners house(Hes coming home in march I cant wait) and she let me ride her endurance horse(Canadian named Benjamin) with this saddle I had never seen in my life. its called a Rebeccas treeless saddle. Im in awe at how wonderful it felt to ride using this saddle. Its like riding bareback only with stirrups and padding and leather. The only reason I didn't like riding as much as I did working from the ground was because I could never get that connection and couldn't feel the movement of the horse. With this saddle I felt that connection. It was the best most amazing ride of my life. No trotting or loping. just walking the horse. It just felt right and comfortable. I had a great seat, my knees and ankles didn't hurt from too short or cheep stirrups. It was just really really enjoyable. Also first time using split rains and I really liked them too. I hear her saddles are really affordable too(About 1000 custom new and you can get some used if you look around). I was reading most treeless saddles have weight restrictions but found a comment about her heaviest rider being 320 pounds and 5'8". Now Bear has sway back so I cant ride him at all but we are planning on buying adleast one draft cross or light draft that I can ride(Im a heavier girl) and If Al can get some experience under his belt bear likes being ridden bareback and bitless(Always has actually just more imperative now that he has sway back). I would have no issue riding him bareback but Im scared I would be too heavy for him with swayback and all.
