  • FreeMax "Legend II" model in supple & thick buffalo quality leather with hand-tooled wavy grooves design on all edges and decorated with white stitching.
  • FreeMax "Legend II" model
  • FreeMax "Legend II" model seen here with the "Western Anatomical" Saddle Pad (size L for our 16 HH gelding but size M is typically ideal). The perfect match for a beautifully compact combo of saddle & pad with the added bonus of the luxurious breathability, heat regulation, moisture-wicking, and bacteria resistancy of sheepskin underside. Not to mention critical spinal clearance for your horse's ultimate comfort and target shimming capability.
  • Unique to FreeMax Treeless Western saddles is the ability to change out pommels with varying angled bases ("forks"), attached with four heavy duty screws accessible from the underside of the saddle. Covered in matching dark brown buffalo leather to the Legend saddles.
  • More leverage! Optional "rubber wedges" offer the option to size down to a smaller fork size if need-be (or remove if one needs to size up). These securely attach inside the saddle via velcro to the pommel base between the pommel and the leather base of the saddle. Brilliant!
  • Wonderfully adaptable to the unique shape of your horse even as it's body condition changes with exercise--no need to keep changing saddles! With no rigid bars extending down along the horse's shoulders an interfering with free scapula motion as with a traditional treed saddle, these unique treeless saddles are adaptable to a wide variety of body shapes and conformations.
  • Synthetic fleece underside with supportive panels on either side of spinal area (centre gap is the width of approx. 3-4 fingers). For added assurance, using a Western Anatomical or Western Roundskirt Pad with 6 pockets for target shimming/spinal protection is highly recommended to further protect the sensitive spinous processes.

FreeMax "Legend II" Round Reiner Treeless Saddle


Product Description

Revolutionary: a treeless saddle that FINALLY looks and feels authentically like a Western saddle!

Almost identical in design and function of the ever-popular & affordable Denver Colorado Springs treeless saddles offered here for years, it is now my great pleasure & honour to announce that the FREEMAX saddle line sourced from Italy are now offered in the North American market exclusively via Equinnovations! We've been personally riding in two FreeMax saddles in addition to our Colorado Springs saddles for over 9 years, so can vouch 100% for their longevity, versatility, stability, and high quality in workmanship!

FREEMAX treeless saddles look firm but still ensure efficient shock absorption and the weight of the rider is very well distributed. With their unique pommel arch and cantle plate coupled with the absence of restrictive bars, they use advanced treeless technology to allow the horse uninterrupted movement along it's whole back unlike any other treed saddle. Totally flexible, they adapt to your horse's body type in a natural way which eliminates the pain & trauma of saddle bridging. This allows your horse to relax and not brace against pain/discomfort, for you to better feel your horse beneath you, and for your horse to be more aware of your subtle seat cues. The absence of "bars" that can restrict scapula free motion coupled with the flexibility and lightness of the saddle minimizes interference on your horse's strides and frees up their shoulders, therefore giving total freedom of movement without the hindrance of a rigid (& thus unforgiving) tree.

Riding with a treeless FREEMAX saddle gives the rider amazing close contact feel, a sensation that is unequalled with a traditional treed saddle.

Features of the "Legend II" FreeMax saddle:

  • Deeper, rounder & slightly longer skirting than the original "Legend" model at 25" length front to back
  • Interchangeable pommels to accommodate more extreme body types
  • Hand-tooled wavy grooves design on all edges & decorated with white stitching
  • Thick & supple BUFFALO leather & slip-resistant leather seat
  • Rounded skirts ideal for shorter-backed horses
  • Deep & secure 4"+ Cheyenne Roll cantle 
  • Adjustable fenders with Blevins Buckles and are removable via unique T-hardware on a heavy duty reinforced leather/nylon tab
  • Ample wither clearance with wide opening to accommodate even moderately high withered horses
  • No "bars" to restrict free-motion of scapula
  • High density polyurethane foam & leather-layered & padded seat affords a natural "twist" akin to a traditional saddle
  • Synthetic wool-lined underside with 3" spinal channel
  • Leather-wrapped resin interior stirrups
  • Stainless steel and nickel plated brass rosettes and girth holder
  • Delivered with leather latigo and front off-billet, but no cinch (100% mohair roper-style cinches highly recommended!)
  • Less than 23 lbs, so very manageable to hoist up on even tall horses!


NOTE: These amazing saddles will accommodate virtually ALL sizes and shapes of horses! For atrophied/uneven-shouldered or sway-backed horses, proper shimming must be employed to bridge the gap/balance the saddle adequately while the horse rebuilds muscle. The Western Anatomical Pad or Western Rounded Pad with shim pockets are highly recommended for not only target-shimming, but adequate spinal clearance as well (in all circumstances) which traditional wool or felt etc. pads cannot offer. (3-Mesh target shims are highly recommended for cases that need extra fortification) 

AND--BONUS!... for all those who have tried other treeless saddles on the market and have been frustrated with them rolling or sliding even when cinched snugly and mounting clean, you CAN mount from the ground with the FREEMAX treeless saddles! With their fixed pommel arch and firmer construction than most other treeless saddles on the market, these amazing saddles lock down on your horse's back just like a treed saddle. Of course the use of a mounting block is recommended when possible as this is always easier on your horse's withers, but you won't be stranded when you have to get off out on the trail!

dividerlinetrans.png Sourced from Italy, these saddles come with the following options...
Color: Dark Brown
Seat sizes: 15", 16", 17")
Pommel base (fork) sizes: 3, 4, 5, 6 (4 being the closest match to full quarter horse bars)  >>>NOTE: fork 7 can be special-ordered in
