    I've seem more problems from ill fitting treed saddles than from treeless.

    I introduce it out of a 10 meter circle. I also play around with shoulders leading, haunches leading a bit and get to a point where the horse stays where I want most of the time.

    I you think the horse is in danger of hurting herself because of shying at extraneous noises then do what's necessary.

    I would start leaving a radio on in the barn and play music in the arena.

    You can't regulate the avoidance of cruelty. Sure, you can make rules and laws but people are going to do what they want in their own barns. You can only catch one or two abusers, here and there. And...

    I spent most of my youth riding bareback and still do. I also use treeless saddles.

    I've seen more back problems from ill fitting saddles than I ever have from bareback riding.

    I too have had success in using the halt (and stand) as a reward. I also practice halt (from various gaits) at the end of a lesson so when I get a good one I can quit on a good note.

    I have no doubt that if custom saddles with large thigh blocks were more available to these riders they would have used them. Things evolve and styles change.
