I tried treeless (Barefoot – and loved it for myself/my own comfort) and went back to treed for the same reason – concerned about my horse’s back. Now I have a Freeform Treeless saddle. It has firm foam panels that velcro to the underside of the saddle that create/maintain a gullet/spine channel. They stay put, […]
I’m not one to write online reviews, but I just had to tell you about Paulita and this wonderful saddle. I have a 5 year old TWH that I ride almost every day. He has big shoulders, a prominent backbone and high withers. Yes, he’s a difficult horse to fit a saddle to. I tried […]
Paulita and I have been working on saddle-fitting my horse, Flame, since I got her in November of 2013. She is a QH/App now 9-year old mare that is old school QH — round and stocky and thick. Fitting her has been a nightmare…however, as you will read, the nightmare is over and the dream […]
Thank you so much for representing such a great product. The Freeform Western Dressage saddle is by far the most comfortable saddle for Phoenix as well as me. At the East Coast Championship show we earned one Champion at Level 1 open WD, one Reserve Champion at Intro level ATR WD, a Top 5 in […]
I moved to the Portland, Oregon area back in 1986 from Canadian prairies…my dream was to ride horseback in the mountains. Purchased an Arabian gelding then a couple mares that were in foal. I had fun playing around with the show world with my foal, Farazjanell. Life changes caused me to disperse my little herd […]
(Robb purchased our Ultimate Trail Saddle for her four horses: an Arab, an Arab-Appaloosa cross and two Lusitanos, four very different backs.) “What a great experience I’ve had working with Paulita on finding a lovely saddle. While on a new saddle quest, knowing what was wanted and not wanted, Paulita was very flexible on sending […]
My friend Paulita Neff is at it again with more treeless saddle surprises. She’s the one who designed my gorgeous moss green Freeform saddle, which I absolutely love. Now she’s developing some new designs after making a trip to Italy and working with these fine saddle makers. She’s very committed to helping people and their […]
I have been a Police Officer for 16 years and on the mounted unit for eleven. My equine partner’s name is Marshal. He is a 24 years old, Morgan Arabian cross and has been my law enforcement partner for eight years. The best part is how Marshal came into my life. Approximately ten years ago […]
Just wanted to give you a little Svenna update- she has changed SO MUCH since I bought the Freeform. Her back looks incredible. Really, her whole body has muscled up properly because she can get over the back and really work. “I love riding in it (more balanced than my $4000 custom saddle ever was), […]
I’ve been really happy with my FreeGait saddle for the past several years. My Rocky Mountain gaited horse moves more freely in it, compared to a number of other saddles I’ve tried. And the seat was surely comfortable. But THIS SEAT, the Ultimate Trail, takes comfort to new heights!!! The day after I got it, […]

Just wanted to shoot you a pic of me and my saddle at the Ft Stanton ride, love love love this saddle. I rode two very tough rides, and I didn’t get sore or uncomfortable one time. The saddle was great going up and down some pretty significant climbs. Thanks again for all your help!!

I love it and so does my horse Zanie! With the new panel system I feel very balanced and secure and my horse is comfortable and free moving. The saddle does not slip when I mount anymore! It’s a keeper!
I’m loving my Freeform! The treeless saddle I had previously continued to cause soreness and white spots on my horse’s back no matter how much I tried with pads. Since getting my Freeform saddle her back hasn’t been sore and the white spots are going away! The elite dressage seat for me is a great […]
I am Legend’s mom and I was introduced to your saddle through Theresa. Legend is a 17.5, 2,000lb barrel belly Clydesdale. I have been through 3 saddles before I found this saddle. I bought a draft saddle that was too small – I just about gave up hope. I have a draft horse – why […]
