The Western Saddler Ltd.
Riding without a saddle is now possible without harming your horse!
Most bareback pads or riding cushions are rather bad for the horse and cause discomfort rather than comfort, because the girth runs directly across the back and distributes all pressure onto one, maybe two spinous processes.
The Barefoot® ‘Ride-On-Pad’ has a v-girthing which distributes the pressure along the entire pad. We deliberately decided against stirrup attachments as standing in stirrups would lead to pressure points.
The Barefoot® ‘Ride-On-Pad’ is padded with high density foam in alternating thickness and is very stable on the horse’s back due to the Sympanova material on the underside. The upper side is made from microfber which ensures good grip for the rider even at speed.The girthing is stabilized by patches, which have real sheep wool on the underside so the girthing does not irritate the coat along the horse’s side.
We recommend the use in combination with the Barefoot® sheepskin girth.
