Tough1 Eclipse Treeless Endurance Saddle with Western Rigging is rated
Rated 4 out of
Decent leg position, easier to girth than most
Got this for semi-retired, wide, nearly-impossible-to-saddle-fit stockhorse; it fits and we like it better than other treeless saddles in terms of ease of girthing, leg position (pretty close to correct/vertical), and ability to mount from the ground. Needed the seat longer than our treed dressage saddles. The saddle does accentuate the downhill build of this horse, and thus looks like it could tip some riders forward, but is soft and so far, so good for walk-trot and modest trail-riding. Immediately replaced the cheap plastic stirrups it came with (small and slick). This brand isn't on our list of favorites, but so far, OK.
