* New Dream Team treeless saddle*

Has anybody actually tried one of these yet? http://treelesssaddles.blog.co.uk/20...press-6436946/

Sorry just found an earlier thread about it. Looks great EXCEPT the seemingly very high pommel and cantle

The cantle has been lowered slightly, it gives you a secure seat. I didn't find it a problem i was nice and secure.

You won't know anyone who has one showjumper they're being launched in August, they are taking orders now though.

I liked it, one because of the price range it was in and the quality of the saddle.
It was comfortable for me to jump in, i could move the knee rolls, and even without the knee roll you still had a slight padding there. It puts you into the classical seat for those that like this. It looked more traditional for those that think treeless are ugly.

People are curious as it's new out, like anything.

this is the other thread.

The 2nd and 3rd photo shows the test saddle which has a high cantle, it has now been lowered.

Just been on the phone to dreamteam about these. Been told they arent really suitable for gaited/ponies horses or short backed horses/ponies.

I don't know yet what sizes they aer making, if they make a 16" then i think my chap ok, his max for the base is a 22", most treeless being 21" base on that size seat, so i guess it depends on how short the back is and whether you have withers.

The 17" i tested was bordering on too long, so i would opt for a 16" my lad has no wither/low wither.
