Rainbow

Oh, my, really? Why do people feel the need to create things like this? It looks like a My Little Pony saddle. I can only speculate that the color patches in front of the saddle are other available color choices in case you want to make it even more obnoxious.

  1. Oh man, that looks like a Barefoot saddle too. I'm so disappointed in them! (I love my Barefoot saddle, though)

  2. How can anyone in their right mind think that those colors go together? Nasty!

  4. Are Barefoot saddles any good? My gelding has linebacker shoulders and camel withers..... I've been considering treeless, though I'm broke at the moment ;)

    That particular saddle is just a WRONG combo of colors. Oh well, with pink AND blue, you could put it on a gelding OR a mare!

  6. cattypex,

    I like mine though if you ask folks in general about treeless saddles, you'll get half telling you treeless saddles are ALWAYS terrible for horses, no matter what, half telling you they're always great for horses, no matter what, and a third half ( ;) ) telling you it depends.

    There's a treeless saddles group on yahoogroups with lots of knowledgeable folks though who I'm sure would love to talk about Barefoot saddles. The Trail and Endurance section of the COTH forums (chronicleforums.com) is also another good resource.

  7. Ditto what Analise said. This looks to me like a sample piece to show you all the possible colors that you could have your saddle made in. Personally, I like normal leather colors like shades of brown and black. This one is just hideous in any one of those colors let alone ALL of them.

  8. Oh gawd, looks like something I'd thought on a gelding just to embarrass him in front of his friends and for a good laugh.

  10. Besides the colors, it just does Not look comfortable. The colors must be trying to make up for that.
