Hi! I am currently looking around to buy a new or used (inexpensive) saddle after i make a little more cash ...unfortunately my mare is really wide withered. NOTHING FITS HER. She is super sensitive which makes it all the better .
SO. i am wondering what everyone's opinion is on treeless saddles. how do they fit on wide horses? I know they can be a little pricy but all i care about is my mare being sound and comfortable. I rode in a Bob Marshall treeless the other day on another horse...i almost thought you could feel the horse a little too much..? my mare is just going to be doing basic training right now..but i do barrel race. I have heard from fellow racers that the saddles tend to make the horses sore after so many runs from bouncing some and all thatt..(we cant always stay in the seat as well as we would like to).
just any info on treeless saddles would be helpful
I will get a picture of my mare's withers and such later. I am so worried because nothing has fit her and i dont have the money for a custom saddle...i am so mad at myself too! I JUST sold my english saddle that has interchangeable gullets. i could have ridden in that until i found a western saddle!
