I was searching Ebay for endurance saddles and came across this.

It says it is a treeless saddle, but for $100.00??? Honestly, it looks comfy... so I'm intrigued. ;)

It looks like a very cheaply made Freeform knockoff, it doesn't even have a brand name, usually they say something. :lol:

<<it may roll when mounting from the ground. Best for experienced riders only. >>

I would call it a glorified bareback pad. wouldn't get near it.

Looks like a cheap knock off of a freeform treeless saddle. Stay away...far away. It is most likely cheaply made. Major manufacturers of the name brand treeless saddles put a lot of thought and research into their designs. These knock offs may LOOK like the originals on the surface but they are far from the quality you would expect from the originals.

I tried my friends Freeform and loved it...My horse moved beautifully in it too!
