I am in need of some major help! I used to have a Bob Marshall treeless Circle Y saddle. I really like how I felt deep and secure in the saddle...plus it fit almost anything I put it on! I decided to sell it since the stirrups felt like they needed to be more forward for me (always felt top heavy) and because of the whole weight distribution issue. I now don't know where to turn. There are so many saddles out there! I would like something that will fit both my horses if possible (appendix QH & 3 year old MFT). I also want something that makes me feel deep and secure in my seat plus comfy too. What about the flex trees and that RB auto adjustable saddle they have out by Royal King? Any suggestions on what brand,type to buy? Really don't want to spend over 800.00 I mostly trail ride but also barrel race and team pen for fun. Thanks for all you help in advance
I did print out the templates and measured my horses last night. They both work best with a 7" wide angle. What size of tree would that be...full quarter horse bars? So at least I have that measurement. Now all I need is some opinions of saddles that make you feel deep and secure in your seat. Anyone have any opinions on that? Of course it has to be comfy for me too. I am getting real confused with the different tree and what they do...equi-fit, flex tree, flex-lite.
The way it makes you feel is a personal thing so you will have to try out saddles to see. Barrle saddles make a lot of people feel that way but they put in the seat for racing so you might not like to ride in them. Find a store close to you and sit in as many as you can.
