Hi Paulita, Just a few words about my ‘happy ass’ saddle. It’s been a year since I ordered my Ultimate Trail saddle. I initially went looking for an alternative to my bespoke County saddle when my horse Blanco finally started coming back into work after a long bout of lameness. Blanco suffered from under run […]
My name is Liz Grimshaw, DVM and I am a small animal veterinarian who lives in Evergreen, Colorado. I am originally from the east coast and grew up in Florida. As I was growing up I took many years of dressage lessons and did low level showing. In 2009 I moved to North Carolina and […]
Hi! My name is Ainsley Suskey and I’m just as energetic, horse-loving, and wild-spirited as many of you. I started riding lessons at the age of four, and started in endurance at the ripe old age of six. I entered the sport on a little shetland pony named Captain Thunderpants who was just as full […]
Product shout out. Far through the years was difficult to find that perfect saddle for. He has an unusually long wither which would rub raw. The Freeform saddle with the correct pad completely stopped this. Truly the only set up that works perfectly for him. He moves free and I love the contact you feel […]
I can say I’ve got over 6,500 miles on my horse in FF saddles. I’ve tried other saddles and always gone back to my FFs. I can use them on various horses and they are comfortable for me on multi-day 50-milers.
We operate a horse trekking business in the South Island of New Zealand and offer rides for all abilities, from short walking rides for first time riders to longer, faster paced rides for experienced riders. We now also offer multi day rides into the NZ high country, over rocky terrain, through rivers and along steep […]
We’ve known the horse below for several years. The original owner, while she got assistance from a pro-fitter, was having a great deal of trouble finding a saddle that this horse could move comfortably in. We got the horse, a 5-year old Arabian, in the early fall and it was clear he had been through […]
My horse Bethany GreyC ran the AHA distance nationals in Indiana this past weekend. We finished 3rd out of 20 entries in the 100-mile distance and won BC for both AERC and AHA. I believe your saddle directly contributed to the BC award.
Legend and I did out first ever 50 endurance ride on September 30 at the Metropark Express ride in Michigan. We rode in our Freeform saddle that we bought earlier this year and it has been a wonderful saddle in training and competition. Legend finished strong and sound with absolutely no back pain! It was […]
By Bobbie Jo Lieberman Soon after I finished my first 100-mile endurance ride in a borrowed Stubben Columbo made of buffalo hide, the first of a new generation of treeless saddles was creating a buzz in the horse world. In the early 1980s, treeless was a new and captivating idea. After our fifth-place finish on […]
I have been riding in a Freeform since 2006. I got a little half Arab mare named Mo (Domino’s Wildflower) who was to become the best horse I’ve ever owned, but the beginning was very rocky in so many ways. She was 4 or 5 years old, completely wild, and very emotional about everything when […]
I wish I would have discovered my Freeform a long time ago. Bareback was my favorite way to ride; now I get the close contact without the blisters on my bottom. Paulita was amazing to work with. I am a picky shopper, she is patient and helps you find just what is right for you […]
All these lovely officers and beautiful horses are mounted up to work. Their choice of saddle for many years is the Freeform Treeless. Thank you, Madison Mounted Police officers! The Madison Mounted Police Team was informally started in 1986 when six Madison Police Officers asked the Chief if they could ride their personal horses while […]
When I got my Gypsy Vanner four years ago little did I know that finding a saddle for him would be such a long and challenging road. The first year and a half we tried 9 different saddles and I ended up riding him bareback most of the time because they just weren’t wide enough, […]
My horse, Moonshine Just The Business aka Bali, has had a number of biomechanical issues in her back stemming from 3 separate injuries to the left hind. As a result she couldn’t wear a treed saddle comfortably for any longer distances so I am just delighted to have finally found the solution to this problem […]
See how well the saddle fits over her withers and wide frame. And the black fenders blend in perfectly with the black saddle pad. Perfect, perfect, perfect!! I can’t get over how comfy the saddle is. She’s not too happy about not being able to eat the grass. But I’m super happy with my saddle. […]
