|In my opinion (as i am over 200 lbs lol) I have never found this to be true with the "Steel equi-flex trees" they are truly rigid enough to distribute my weight most evenly and still give the ability to conform to the horse natural movements . I have ran tests with with a "port lewis impression pad " and have found the weight distribution to be amazing . I personaly have been riding and training in the Imus saddle since there creation. and have very few issues on any of the horses i have used it on. "Treeless" saddles and saddles made on inferior flex trees have issues with weight . Also in my opinion we tend to ride our horses in diferant frames as to what we ask our horses to do. Like I have nice flat back in a walk and flat walk then as I ask for a running walk i mah have my horse round up a little as you get him on the bit . Then if i want to flat out go and rack he may have a higher headset and drop his back a little . Now there is no way a rigid tree could fit in all of those situations. A flexible support system just makes sense...
PS: my horses thank you Brenda!!!

Training starts every time you approach a horse
and ends when you walk away.
