Big Horn Form Fitting Flex Tree

Flexible saddle trees are becoming increasingly popular, reflecting the growing awareness and concern of today's riders for their horses'well being. Beware, however, flexibility is not the same as proper fit.

The fork and cantle should be rigid, which limits the flexibility to the bars.  Otherwise there is a risk of pinching the wither, creating even more pressure than an ill fitting tree.  The tree should not rest on the spine at any point.

Equi-Fit Flexible bars are molded to shape, not cut from a flat sheet.  This flexibility enhances an already proper fit; it doesn't attempt to create it.  Crudely fashioned bars, dependent on flexibility for the final shaping of the fit, have pressure points built in.

Equi-Fit Flexible bars work like the arch support of a shoe; they provide the correct fit while the flexibility allows unrestricted movement and bends away from pressure.  If you are choosing a flexible tree, make sure the flexibility improves a quality fit and does not merely make a crude fit tolerable.

Solid saddle at a great price I had been searching for an endurance type saddle for some time, but dislike synthetics. This saddle for the bill and my budget I did get it on clearance - thanks HSS for the weekly clearance emails! At 20-something pounds, this is a heavier endurance saddle, but it feels substantial and more secure than lighter synthetic options. The leather is high quality and the finish is very nice, I like the very simple edge tooling; nothing fancy. The high cantle makes long lopes comfortable and the absence of a horn makes jumping obstacles so much more pleasant! The way the saddle fits my horse is the biggest factor in my satisfaction with a saddle, and this one fits my muscular Appendix QH perfectly. It runs a little wide, but I love the way it leaves plenty of room for my horses shoulders to move. I only award this saddle four stars because it comes standard with composit stirrups, which are fine, they just dont do the saddle justice, and nylon billets eally a pity to put such mediocre accessories on such a very nice saddle\.
Pros:Tree seems purpose built for the athletic horse. Allows for full range of motion of horses shoulders. Center-fire girth system gets cinch back away from horses armpits and relieves rubbing, and gives saddle very secure fit. Beautiful, high quality leather. Lots of clips for gear and saddle bags.
Cons:Plastic stirrups. Nylon billets.

I love this saddle! I have an Icelandic horse with a short, wide back. After trying six different saddles on him, I was delighted to find this Big Horn saddle - it is perfect for him! The length is perfect and it is very lightweight. Plus, it looks beautiful, is well made, and is very comfortable. I love that the pommel has that cut out area - it is easy to grip onto for mounting and dismounting. Now I am one happy rider! Thanks, Big Horn!
