Manufacturer: Sydney Saddleworks
Model: Treeless Western Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I bought the sydeny saddleworks treeless, western model off of ebay used for $275, they retail at $450 from frontier equestrian saddles tack . I have a three year old friesian arab cross and was having problems finding a properly fitting saddle for him

Likes: It is extremely nice! I was very surprised when i got it. The leather is nice and supple. It is also very comfy! Gives a very nice close contact feel with the horse but is very sturdy. We went through several spooks and silly 3 yo stuff and the saddle stayed put. I rode in a tacky tack western pad and a breastcollar and it stayed great. It also looks like a nice western saddle. The tooling is beautiful. Some western type treeless saddles i would be embarrassed to set foot in a show ring with but this one is fantastic looking! (I have the light oil model) It also measures like a regular western so it wasn't a guessing game as to what would fit. Also, No glue! It is completely stitched with what looks like some tough leather thread around a foam padding base.

Dislikes: The fenders are really long on these saddles, which is mentioned in the original description. I punched a few holes in them and i was fine. If you have fairly short legs this saddle probably wouldn't work for you unless you had the fenders adjusted. Also because the horn/pommel is a separate piece from the saddle, and is stitched on to a thick foam pad that is the base, is does wiggle a little bit. So while it is not as stable as a typical western horn, you horse is getting a lot of flexibility in it. so, win for the horse but a downer for the rider.

Quality: Good quality leather, well put together, seems very sturdy, stood up to the spooky 3 year old.

Summary: Definitely something I would purchase again. The fenders were only a minor issue and the pommel is something i am willing to overlook since it adds to the horses comfort. Unless you are looking to do roping (which you probably shouldn't use a treeless saddle for anyways) this is definitely a good buy
