Trail Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Genuine Trekker
Model: Pro Enduance
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I acquired my first Trekker about two years ago, it was the model Dressage Endurance, which is no longer made by Trekker. The reason for the purchase was that my favorite endurance riding vet had finally convinced me that my horse needed a treeless saddle to keep her from having sore back issues. After much debate and countless trials of lesser made saddles, I gave Trekker a try. I paid about $800 for it back then, and felt it was worth every penny but needed some changes to suit a true endurance rider. This is how the Pro Endurance model came about. After about 12 competitive riders of everybody type and horse type had tried the saddle and given their suggestions, the ProEndurance was made. The price due to more work and the value of the US dollar has increased dramatically, it is worth every penny.

Likes: I really like this saddle because it is German made, to start with. The quality of the workmanship is completely uncompromising. The engineering, in itself, that has gone into this saddle to make it perfectly fitted to almost any equine on the planet and most any human on top of that with just a few simple turns of a few screws is awesome. The saddle is a true treeless, but, it has actual flocked panels on the underside that allow it stability for mounting, hillwork and at the same time allowing a wide gullet so that not an inch is touching your horses spine at any moment during your ride. This is achieved without special "treeless saddle pads" that do this for hundreds of dollars. Not only do the saddles not touch the spine, but, scientifically tested, distribute a riders weight beautifully so that there are no pressure points. This saddle is not only wonderful for the horse, but it is like riding on a cloud for the rider - perfectly soft and comfortable from day one. Not only is it soft, it is very well balanced. You are put more into a classical seat position so that your weight is underneath you instead of in front or behind you. This saddle is like no other on the market. It should not simply be classified as a treeless saddle because it is so much more than simply a treeless saddle. Thus far, I have ridden over 1500 miles in my Trekker on a horse that has had sore back issues in the past, with (knock on wood) no back problems to date.

Dislikes: Realistically, the only problems with the saddle is the suede section just below the seat, where it covers the stirrup bar. Some riders love it because it helps them stick better - for me, I would rather it be all that wonderful smooth soft leather that the rest of the saddle is made of. As last I heard... they were changing that on the new models - so after that - nothing.

Quality: True German workmanship and quality. The difference between a Chevrolet and a Mercedes.

Summary: If you are looking for an amazing saddle that fits your horse and rides like a dream for trail riding, competitive trail, or endurance - this saddle should be at the top of your list.
