Everything for animals: Treeless Saddle Video Guide

The saddle tree is a wooden post inside the saddle. This bridge is covered by the cushions and serves to distribute the rider’s weight evenly on the horse’s back. Since this wooden post is rigid and cannot adapt to the horse, it is extremely important that the saddle fits the horse perfectly. The spine must be exposed. In addition to saddles with a rigid or flexible saddle tree and so-called bareback pads, treeless saddles are becoming increasingly popular in the equestrian world. And it can indeed be a great alternative to conventional saddles. To do this, however, it must meet a number of criteria and be well adapted to the horse’s back

Many critics hang on to the fact that with treeless saddles the rider’s weight is not distributed evenly enough on the back and painful pressure points arise on the horse’s back. However, an independent study has now proven that high-quality saddles without a saddle tree in particular have just as few pressure points under the web bow suspension as conventional saddles. In addition, the advantage of the treeless saddle is that no wooden tree can press on the shoulder of the horse. This gives the horses more shoulder room and reduces shoulder atropias. The treeless saddle also adapts perfectly to the horse’s musculoskeletal system and does not obstruct it when riding

The treeless saddle is available in almost all shapes for every riding style. At the well-known manufacturers like the company Barefoot, Silverado or Freeform you can get different treeless saddles. They make Western saddles for Western riding, a good example is the Silverado type Western. This offers a firm seat by inserts in front and behind, remains however thereby comfortable for rider and horse. A special extra of the saddle is the design in two different colours. The Barefoot “London” is recommended for dressage saddles. In this model, there are two large knee rolls on the saddle blade that adapt to the rider’s leg. The rider has a deep, soft sitting feeling without hindering the freedom of the horse’s spine. Trekking saddles for long rides or hiking rides are also popular. When you buy these saddles, you should make sure that they fit perfectly and that the horse is well trained and has sufficient back muscles before you start the trek. The main materials used for treeless saddles are leather or imitation leather. When taking care of the saddle, the same points should be observed as for normal saddles. To keep it supple and soft and to prevent cracks in the material, it must be regularly cleaned and greased or oiled

A treeless saddle can also be positive for the rider with back problems. Because if the horse is loose in the back and does not make any hard movements, the rider can loosely swing along, which loosens tensions and has a good effect on the back muscles.
