Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I purchased my saddle through PFL, a Kuda saddle dealer, in May 2010. My model with a suede patch seat cost $1230.
Likes: The Leather Flex Trail saddle does not have a hard tree, instead it has a tree made of leather and foam. It gives close contact and the soft seat comfort of a treeless saddle but you do not sit on the horse's spine. Also, your legs are not spread as wide as a treeless. The saddle is very secure as you sit in a pocket behind a rise to the pommel. The pommel is rigid and a great handle. I purchased the narrow pommel because I ride Paso Fino's but they come in three widths.
Dislikes: I am short and had the fenders cut shorter.
Quality: Beautiful, thick leather, well designed and has stainless hardware. I get many compliments on this saddle.
Summary: I have owned many brands and styles of saddle but this is my favorite by far! I sold other saddles to purchase a second Kuda Flex-Tree in the endurance style.
