Built on the same tree as the Caliente, this style is by far the most popular trail riding western saddle bar none! The Liberty spells comfort With a contemporary design featuring) tear drop fenders, straight cantle binding, a slick fork and a deep seat pocket that gives comforting lower back support for the all day ride. This saddle is popular with all breeds and types of horses and mules too! The round skirt design gives it ability to fit the various back shapes – long and short, dippy and straight. This saddle has a narrow to moderate twist allowing the rider to ride all day long without getting fatigued in the knees and hips.  The nicely padded soft-seat uses both upholstery and neoprene foam, is hand skived and shaped to be anatomically correct, has no stitching lines that can rub you raw. Another plus for this saddle is the easy free flowing movement of the fenders that virtually eliminates problems with legs and feet falling asleep.  As for security, it is all there.  The ultra thin tree and advance panel design allow the rider a next-to and down on the horse secure seat. Oh… and don’t forget that horn… you can really use it: great for ponying young stock yet low enough to be generally out of the way, reducing the chance of having the horn get caught up in clothing. The only difference between the Liberty and the Caliente is the Liberty does not have the blocking.  Photo showing difference.

Standard padding or the extra padding of the Soft Seat - that is the question.
    

Center photo of lighter color saddle DOES NOT have the extra padding that is in the Soft Seat.

Why select the extra padding of the Soft Seat
 There are some points to consider when deciding to select this option-with the Soft Seat.  First, you will lose some of the room that the saddle has to offer for your rear-end - so if you are between sizes use this to help gauge your seat size. Secondly when you select the Soft Seat, you will lose a bit of the "pocket" to sit down in, (since the extra padding is now there for your rear-end and /or your bone-y butt bones). Lastly, with the Soft Seat, the saddle will have a bit of a narrower twist. The twist is the part that is between your thighs (your crotch area). Therefore, if you like a narrower twist, have a bony butt or need a smaller seat size, adding the extra padding of the Soft Seat is key.

The Soft-Seat is soft and easy to care for.  It has NO stitching lines that can fill up with dirt and grime making a saddles seat difficult or impossible to clean.  Also having a seat with no stitching keeps the saddles seat soft, as the more a saddles seat is stitched the firmer it becomes.
