A "flex tree" saddle is a saddle that has bars that are flexible, which allows the saddle to flex with the horse. This flexibility is not intended to force a saddle to fit a horse properly (if that is even possible), but instead is intended to enhance the fit of a saddle that already fits a horse the way it should.
Not all flex trees are the same – they vary from one saddle maker to another. HorseSaddleShop.com has an excellent, informative article on flex tree saddles, and includes information and illustrations on how they vary. To see the article, please click here:

- Most of the saddles shown are new, but some might be used.
- Shipping is almost always included in the price for locations in the continental USA.
- Some saddles by HorseSaddleShop are listed twice. Why? It’s because HorseSaddleShop is one business located in Bremen, Indiana, with two websites (HorseSaddleShop.com and eSaddles.com). They use the same logo (HorseSaddleShop) for both of their websites. Usually their prices are the same, but just in case one website has a better deal saddles from both websites are shown.
