I was thinking of getting one but what Tasha has said has put me off! I think I am going to get a seatbone saver though :)

so was it quite comfey, how does it tie on to the saddle, would it fit the treeless trekker? :)

For the Trekker you would need the "Turtle" shaped Hipsaver I think. It's the one with the velcro base. You can see it in the EE shop on the EE website, if you go to the Hipsaver page and scroll down.

i went on the forum of EE thismorning and there was a virus on the forum, has it affected the rest of the site?

There isn't a virus on the forums, some idiot had hacked into it. I've virus checked my pc several times and only 1 tracking cookie has shown up. You could still view the forums until about 10 minutes ago. They're currently being sorted out.
The rest of the site is fine.

Really old thread, sorry... found it searching!
More questions for those of you who have one of these: do they fit barefoot/Torsion styke treeless, how thick are they (how high are they above the saddle), and if anyone else makes them, are HM's the best?

I had a look on the EE site and couldn't find anything. Horse & Harmony have one listed which I presume is the right shape for barefoot/torsion stylee saddles which is what i'm going to have..... can't find a 'turtle' one anywhere :confused:
I really like the sound of it, but I'd love a bit more info before parting with that sort of cash!

I don't have one for the endurance type saddles, but have used my english one on them, it works, but its very thick and makes me feel very high.
don't know if the link will work, but the EE shop has the turtle one and the replacement seat one:)
(link didn't work, just click under hip saver of the left hand side)
