Flex trees are moderately new to the equine business (in examination with the well established wooden tree), and we guess that in the event that somebody just heard the expression “adaptable tree” without comprehending what it is, this fantasy would be handily brought forth. Numerous individuals hear the term and expect that a flex tree is bendable like a bit of plastic or elastic. As a general rule, flex trees just “flex” about a centimeter in either heading, and just under pounds of weight. You would most likely think that its difficult to try and see a flex tree “flexing.” This centimeter of development, be that as it may, is the thing that makes the flex tree progressively agreeable for the pony and permits the seat to adjust better to his development. We’re not going to suggest flex trees for roping or farm work, however we’re willing to state that under path and delight conditions, its absolutely impossible a flex tree is going to twist or collapse.
