Is that the kind that fits the barefoot treeless saddles. What was it like to ride on was it comfortable and did it do as it claims make the saddle seem narrower. If you thought it was good and it would fit a barefoot I may be interested in buying it from you.

Hi, HM do a barefoot hipsaver and an english hipsaver. You can tell which it is from the shape. There are photo's and info on the hipsavers, and also the seat bone savers on the enlightened equitation shop: http://www.enlightenedequitationshop.com/

I've not tried any of them personally, but I have heard very good things. If you go browse the EE forums (http://www.enlightenedequitation.com...ards/index.php), there will be posts and opinions on their, although obviously it is heather's own forums so expect it to be possibly bias (maybe justifiably so, maybe not - couldn't tell you!).

Sorry can't give you personal experience, but HTH...x

The hipsaver is designed thicker to give a twist to a saddle without one, seatsaver just cushions your bum.

I had one on my fhoenix just found it actually gave me less twist than the actual saddle, haven't tried one on a barefoot type saddle though.

Sorry wantin to clarify. Why would you use one? To make the saddle narrower (the bit you sit on)?? So like a really wide saddle Im assuming, cause thats what treeless are like arent they??

Some styles of treeless do make you feel like your are too wide. Or some wide horses make you feel this way also. It gives impression of twist so you feel narrower yes. But trying to look up exactly what i have. I know hip saver but two types. Got off ebay so its going back on unless someone pm.s me

I often find riding agony now due to my cr*ppy hips. My wide saddle fits my wide mare, but it's too wide for me to sit in!! I'm very interested in your hip-saver. I'm off to google.....to see if it would be useful for me!

Would you be prepared to swap it for anything? Besides money...which I am seriously lacking!

Sorry newforest I didn't see this thread again....and forgot all about it! I really did mean to PM you....My brain is occupied with other things and I completely forgot... TBH, I've put my saddle up for sale anyway...we are so desperate for the money...so a hip-saver for a saddle won't really help if I don't actually have a saddle....! Hope you get a good price for it on eBay.
