What Is A Treeless Saddle?
Like the name implies, a treeless saddle is a saddle built without a saddle tree. A “tree” in a saddle is a solid structure around which the rest of the saddle is built. It’s called a “tree” because it has traditionally been made of wood. Many saddle trees today are still made of wood, but they can also be made of fiberglass, plastic, other materials, or a combination of materials.
On a finished saddle the tree can’t be seen because it is covered with leather or other materials.

On a treeless saddle, all or some of the rigid tree isn’t used. For example, some treeless saddles have a rigid (or fairly rigid) pommel and cantle, but the saddle bars are made from more flexible materials. In some cases, a treeless saddle may not even have saddle bars. Treeless saddle construction varies from the type of saddle (English, Western, barrel saddle, trail saddle, etc.) and from one saddle maker to another.
