What's everyone's thoughts on treeless saddles? And has anyone tried one? 

I've always been interested in idea of a treeless saddle. The thought that it would just fit better and allow more free movements (I'm assuming) ...but I'm guessing that the tree is there for a reason and serves a purpose...therefore wondering what the consequences are of taking it away.

I've heard that a fitted tree saddle is much more supported and beneficial to the horse than a treeless saddle, but would need to try and find that article again. I do know that my saddle fitter hates them haha

Thank you - I did think that there was a reason to having one, I've just heard lots of good things about treeless saddles. (although that's probably all just good marketing 🤣 🤣)

@clairehoward think so much depends on the horse, the rider and how you're using the treeless saddle too 😊
