Treeless Saddles

“Treeless saddles” is a concept that many riders know about and understand but there are probably not that many riders in the Baltics who have tried them — at least, who have tried a good treeless saddle. Here’s your chance to get to know them better, looking specifically at treeless saddles made by the German company Barefoot. We dare say Barefoot make the best treeless saddles in the world, and also that a Barefoot treeless saddle is the best your horse can get. Here’s why:

But don’t just take our word for it! Why not search around the internet for opinions about Barefoot treeless saddles and see what riders around the world think about them. Better yet, why not get in touch with us so you can try a Barefoot saddle for yourself? When you do, we’re sure you’ll soon find that:

  • Your horse is surprisingly happy when riding,
  • The saddle gets better and better as it adapts to your horse and yourself,
  • You can do anything with it,
  • You will soon wonder how you ever got along without it. 🙂

Most importantly, your horse will learn to love riding and you’ll both have a great time on the trails. Happy horse, happy rider – that’s our motto.

Treeless Saddles: Their Chief Advantage

Grass grows only in the summer in the Baltics. Our horses are thin in spring and fat in autumn. Their body shape is in constant change throughout the year. When you think about it: How can a rigid, conventional saddle fit the horse all the time? The answer, obviously, is that it can’t. When it doesn’t, it causes pain for the horse and the horse will begin to hate riding. You can call in a specialist to alter the saddle, sure, but how many times a year are you prepared to do that? As many times as your horse needs it? That would be very expensive. And what if you run a larger stable with dozens of horses and half-a-dozen saddles…?

Through hell and high water…

With a Barefoot treeless saddle, there are no such worries. You can easily make the same saddle fit your horse at all times – or make the same saddle fit on 10 different horses in a day. No problem! You can do it all yourself. A change of front pommel is usually enough. When it isn’t, you can adjust the saddle pad with fillings. When you own a Barefoot treeless saddle which is right for yourself in terms of size, you’ll never need another saddle again!
