Re: [RC] Best saddles for under $1000 - DESERTRYDR1

These days the Big Horn endurance  model also comes in regular and wide 
Flex-Tree.  I have seen the Circle Y western version in the tack store, and 
the Tex Tan western version of the Flex Tree, but not the Big Horn.  The Circle 
Y version has enough flex that you can bend it from front to back with your 
bare hands.  The Tex Tan version doesn't have that much flex.  Haven't seen the 
Big Horn version, so I can't say.  Thought about ordering one for my mule, who 
has withers, but then a typical mule (straight) back, but I don't want to get 
it and find it has very little flex like the Tex Tan.  Has anyone tried one?  
I am thinking maybe just go treeless, but then I HATED the only sport saddle 
I ever sat in.  Tried it on my Arab girl for a ride, and ended up pulling it 
off and riding bareback because it was such a COUCH.  jeri
