RE: [RC] [RC] Bandos/Freeform - Ranelle Rubin

Kristen, Does the Woolback you are planning to get have foam inserts?

From what I understand, if you are not using a pad with foam inserts, you do run the risk of not having enough support. There are also Kevlar inserts you can get to fit inside a HAF pad to sort of form a tree if you want to try that. I tried them, did not see much difference, so took them out and added a extra foam pad. It seems to be working fine.

As for trying to put the Bandos leather hangers on a Freeform, not sure yet if that will work.

So do you feel like the Freeform it would spread the weight of the stirrup hanger better?

 

Just curious as my mare is kind of sore after our 50 this past weekend [I ride in the Freeform Enduro]. But not specifically where the stirrups hang – more of the general seat area. This was her 3rd 50, and a hard one [lots of rock, hills, etc – stuff she has never done before]. I am hoping it’s just the strain of the terrain as she wasn’t sensitive after her other 50 in the Freeform [and her 1st was in an Abetta that did NOT fit her well].

 

I plan to go ahead and get the Toklat Woolback for treeless saddles, as I use a regular Woolback now that is getting a bit old, and I think the new model Woolback would be more comfortable for her. Thoughts?

PS: The FF seems to be working very well for me – this was the hardest 50 I have done and my chiro was very surprised at how little I needed to be adjusted today.

Comparing the rigging on the Freeform to the rigging on the Bandos is like comparing apples to oranges.  They are entirely different types of saddles.  The FF is foam injected which gives it quite a bit of shape and structure; while the Bandos is an “unstructured” treeless.

It is also very big compared to the one on the Freeform..about the size of a salad plate or bigger..?
