    Default Hilason Treeless Saddles latest Model

    Has anyone Tried Hilason Treeless Saddles latest Model. They are a far impovement from their old model. The new Model looks like a typical western tree saddle.

    Well, we have to take a break from the Gill witch hunt once in a while.

    Perhaps an attempt at a little levity.

    Hi there!
    Yes I have acutally purchased a a couple of saddles from Hilason recently in the past 6 months. I honestly feel that their new saddles are far better than the one they sold about 3 to 4 years ago. Not only have their improved in their leather quality but also on their entire style and look of their saddles. I honestly feel a remarkable difference between the one that I own and the one that my friend has from almost 4 years ago.
    I have purchased one treeless and one flex tree and both are working just fine for me. One of my horses have extremely high withers and that why I decided to give their treeless a try and it have been doing great!!

    Barrel racing?
    I actually don't. But I know my daughter does. She has sat on my treeless saddle and raced a couple of times if I remember correctly. Its actually pretty good from what she said. I will be taking her back to Hilason here in the next month or so to buy her a treeless saddle for barrel racing.

    BF's point: this is the RACING forum. As in thoroughbreds, mostly, and Standardbreds, sometimes we have a thread about racing QHs. So this is probably not the approriate forum.

    At least its horse related spam this time. I was getting pretty sick of the cell phone and designer jewelry knockoff spam. I must say that my favorite are the tag team spammers. The ones that start a thread about a product then have the other spammer comment on it. A for effort. Or is that A for asshat? I always get those mixed up.

    Oh goodie, the Hilason spammers are on the racing forum now instead of endurance. That's where they usually turn up Two brand new posters signing on just to say how great these piece of junk "saddles" are....like THAT'S not obvious.

    Hilason, do you not realize that *every* time you do this (and this certainly isn't the first) it makes people think even *less* of your saddles?

    Now if I owned the companies that keep on joining just to say how great there saddles, bridles, etc are what I would do is not join, but send an email to some people that have TONS of posts and ask if I PAID them x amount if they would give a good review of the product. Then it wouldn't look like a newb that just joined to say it.

    LOL Couture I will remember that when I start hocking my show bows for the racing scene. (I'm not for a couple of reasons.1. Not crafty enough2. Men wear their bows on top of their helmets not on their hair.)

    Given the violently negative reactions to show bows anywhere that isn't the dressage forum around here.....
