Re: [RC] [RC] which style saddle would you choose? - Marta Kozlowska

i've looked into treeless saddles in the past but my mare has a v. high wither and they seem to be more suited for round horses.  also, i was a little concerned about the way the stirrups are attached to the saddles. i think it was the torsion that has a narrow ring that goes under the seat to which the stirrup bars attach.  i was concerned that the weight of my body in the stirrups would result in a v. localized pressure on her back.

Hi Marta,

That is, until I tried a treeless. I really didn't know my horse could move out in her shoulder so freely.
Borrow a Torsion or a Freeform from someone before you buy. Just try it. I think you'll be amazed.
