Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: I ordered my saddle on line from www.treelesssaddle.com after I broke my tail bone. I had ridden in one prior to breaking my tail bone and really liked the feel of it, but didn't want to invest the money into a new saddle when I already had a very good one. However with a broken tailbone I could no longer sit in a treed saddle and needed to do something different. I paid $1583.00 before shipping and I also added a matching breast collar and flank cinch.
Likes: This saddle is soft on your rear. You really feel the movement and muscles of your horse. You know when he is tense or relaxed. This saddle also holds you in the seat real nicely weather you are at speeds or just meandering along the trails. The suede seat gives an extra hold to keep you in the saddle. This saddle will fit any horse as it does not have a tree that needs to fit your horse. I truly feel one with my horse in this saddle!
Dislikes: I didn't have them add D-Rings to my saddle and am now having them added. The lead time on receiving this saddle after ordering is longer than I liked.
Quality: The Bob Marshall Barrel Racing Saddle I purchased is made of quality leather throughout. The stirrups are real flexible, they do not need training like some other brands. The leather is soft and supple yet of heavy gage. The tooling is all hand accomplished rather than stamped and beautifully done. The fleece is of high quality as is the silver accents. I am an inspector by trade and I find this saddle to lack nothing in the line of quality!
Summary: Awesome barrel racing or trail saddle weather you are a new rider or experienced barrel racer. There is also endurance and trail saddles available. Fantastic quality. Holds it value! I bought new because the used Bob Marshall's listed on Ebay were going for nearly new price. If you really want to experience 'riding' your horse, check our the Bob Marshall Treeless Saddles.
