Amigo Treeless Saddle
Dressage Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Ansur
Model: Amigo Treeless Saddle
Category: Dressage Saddles

Purchase: I purchased the Ansur Amigo five years ago for my very wide, short, flat backed Arabian mare. I paid $2,500 With a traditional treed saddle we had some rearing issues during mounting as even the wide tree saddles would pinch her. Having her thoroughly checked out by our vet, we determined it was a reaction to pain. After not finding a traditional treed saddle that fit her without pinching, I decided to try the Ansur.

Likes: I have been riding in this saddle for 5 years and never had any issues. My horse didn't rear from the first time I mounted her in the Ansur( always from a mounting block) My mare moves well, has a relaxed stride, has the freedom to move full in the shoulder area. Ive ridden 10 mile trail rides and I myself have never been sore, nor has my horse. The saddle is so comfortable. You can really feel your horse moving under you and in my case my horse really responds to my seat and legs. Sometime I will ride her in my friends ultra wide warmblood saddle and I notice a huge difference in her stride. Its short and choppy and she pins her ears, and fusses the whole ride.

Dislikes: There is nothing about the saddle itself I do not like. However I have had a hard time finding the right pad. As the treeless saddle doesn't have a gullet most dressage pads have a "spine" with stitching. I recently bought the Thinline contour dressage pad and that works fantastically. Also because there is no tree, mounting from the ground can be tricky,the saddle slips a little. I also learned how to be a very balanced rider, the saddle did tend to slip to my stronger left side. I learnt really fast how to equally balance my weight.

Quality: The Ansur Amigo is made of high quality leather and still looks great after 5 solid years of use. It comes with removable knee blocks, which give a lot of security if needed.

Summary: This is a very comfortable saddle for rider and horse, however don't buy one if you need the stability of a treed saddle. But in time you will develop a very good seat and not rely on the saddle for stability. Very well made and definitely worth the money.
