Manufacturer: Action Horse
Model: Fitform Treeless Saddle
Category: All Purpose Saddles
Likes: Because this saddle is treeless, it will fit just about any horse. You may need to vary the padding if you have a very thin, or very fat horse, but if you buy the saddle that fits you, chances are you can make it fit your horse. Horses tend to move more freely through the back and shoulders without a wooden tree to impinge. You can feel the horse's movement more clearly, which makes things like sitting trot much easier. This saddle is so comfortable - it's like sitting on a pillow on your horse. My pony likes it too.
Dislikes: With the incorrect padding, it can slip quite drastically. Eg. My pony is pretty overweight, and with thick woollen padding under the saddle, it slips a lot. I have remedied this with a breastplate. The lack of knee rolls, although excellent for improving your balance, aren't so good for sitting out bucks and spooks. I'd imagine this saddle wouldn't be your best bet for jumping either.
Quality: This is a really well made saddle. It's been well thought out, and the stitching is all done in such a way that it distributes the rider's weight quite evenly.
