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:
