Western Barrel Treeless Saddle

So I rode my gelding in the previous picture for the 20 minutes as suggested and it was fabulous!!! My gelding is notorious for bucking when a new saddle is introduced to him. Not with Freeform saddle!! He put his head down and walked off like we’ve been riding together for years!!!!
Thank you so much, I love this saddle ?❤️
