Frequently Asked Questions
What do you mean by "tree free"?
Traditional saddles are built on a tree-the skeleton of the saddle. They consist of a swell and cantle, connected by a pair of bars. The bars make contact along the sides of the horse's back, distributing the rider's weight. Just-B-Natural Tree Free saddles have a swell and cantle, but no bars.
What are the benefits of a treeless saddle to the horse?
Because most bars are rigid, they may hinder the horse's ability to bend and flex comfortably. And, if the tree does not fit properly, the horse may develop soreness, white spots, poor performance and a bad attitude. Because the Tree Free saddle has no bars, saddle fit is not an issue. The materials utilized in the design of the skirt help distribute the rider's weight, and the skirt is flexible enough to conform to your horse's shape, allowing him to move freely.
What are the benefits of a treeless saddle to the rider?
The Tree Free saddle allows the rider close contact and to really feel the horse. Because the bulk of the saddle tree has been eliminated between horse and rider, the horse can be more responsive to seat and leg cues. The Tree Free saddle still has a swell, cantle, and seat assembly, so the rider has the security of a traditional saddle, with even greater comfort.
What are Softee seat jockeys and fenders?
It�s a 2-ply leather that has a nice, broke in feeling, right out of the box. By using Softee leather on the fenders, we eliminate the break-in time of traditional stiff leather fenders (no broomstick needed), making this saddle a lot easier on the knees and ankles.
What's a 3-way rigging and how do I use it?
The 3-way adjustable rigging lets you change the position of the rigging to a full (front dee), (rear dee) or 7/8 (using both dees) by changing the use of your tie strap. This means you can find the rigging position that works best for your horse and style of riding.
