Re: [RC] Treeless saddles - Laney Humphrey

I don't ride in a treeless saddle so I'll leave comments on that to other people. But I would like to advise not using one pad on top of another! Just using one pad and one saddle, there are 2 "intersections" where things can slip and slide: 1) horse's back - pad, 2) pad - saddle. Adding a 3rd between two potentially slippery surfaces just adds to the risk of the saddle slipping.
