Model: Extra Light
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: LOVE this saddle. Tried several treed models including wintec with changeable gullet and my Canadien mare and I did not like them. Actually, my opinionated mare hated them. Decided to go with the Torsion extra light after talking with Jeanine at www.gotreeless.com and with her help found the best model for me. 1,100 for the saddle only, no fittings.
Likes: Excellent quality and workmanship. Very comfortable. Lots of D rings. Fits draft X, Canadien mare with wide shoulders and a quarter pony. Will work on a small pony as well. As close to bareback that I can have in a saddle.
Dislikes: Nothing, but a rider who needs a saddle for security may not feel comfortable.
Quality: Excellent quality. Nice leather, neat and well done stitching and would be easy to repair. I had to modify the wood pommel insert a bit to fit my mares width. Easily done with a file.
Summary: I would not buy any other saddle than the Torsion. I looked at a friends Barefoot which is very close in design and the Torsion is of better quality overall. I would gladly pay the extra for the Torsion.
