I've been wondering this myself for ages..............found a few but you can't trial them except the torsion synthetic treeless but I found it slipped a bit!!

I got mine from Germany via Ebay. £135 including courier delivery :) It is very comfy for both Frayne and me (and I have arthritis in my spine, so many saddles aren't right for me), seems to stand up to daily use well and all I need to do is wipe it over occasionally :D I realise I will need to get something more 'substantial' if I do any longer rides or jumping etc - but this will do me for now. There is a woman in this country who sells them (more expensive though :rolleyes: ). Search on Ebay for treeless saddles - do an international search if you want a cheaper one direct from Germany.

@ mayo: most of the 'standard shaped' treeless saddles (ie torsion, barefoot, trekker ...) will slip a bit on the witherless/round/coffetable pony/horse. i've got a barefoot cheyenne for my witherless, barrelshaped exmoor and it WILL slip when pony does a sharp turn or changes direction quickly. i think thats just the nature of those saddles, but can be made better by eg antislip pads or a breastplate type thing.

Yes I know. I have a cashel at the mo and to be fair as long as I do it up tight it doesn't tend to slip. Had an awful experience with my synthetic torsion once when it slipped, now I know I didn't do it up anywhere near tight enough but it scared me so I sold it on!! Bitterly regret it now but I can't aford to buy a new one :(

iv horse do a synthetic treeless, and there are some libra saddles that come up on ebay and some websites (naturally equine i think) sell them.
A breastplate and non slip pad really do help with these type of saddles, but if your really worried about slipping the libra western maybe better for you, and swop the rigging so the pull is on the other side when you get on. If it slips when your riding it may be a balance issue with your riding.
