The Barefoot model ‘Lazy Mountain’ was developed after listening to rider’s feedback, who wanted a sheepskin saddle that would not cause problems for the horse’s back but one that also offered the comfort of a genuine sheepskin saddle.
The structures of the ‘Lazy Mountain’ corresponds to our proven Barefoot saddles: The saddle offers the same protection for the horse and the same flexibility. The integrated VPS system protects the horse’s back from pressure points and saddle adapts to the horse’s movement to allow muscle development instead of bruising of the muscles. It is therefore possible to use this saddle just as normal with leathers or fenders without any restrictions.
For all riders who want to feel safe in the saddle without feeling restricted! The ‘Lazy Mountain’ offers even more comfort for the rider: The seat is super soft with the large incorporated foam padding ensuring such a secure, embedded seat for the rider that he will not want to get off. The saddle offers more than support, it ‘surrounds’ the rider softly and securely – a fantastic feeling!
A soft, anatomically shaped cushion is secured (velcro) under the genuine sheepskin seat. This makes the seat even more comfortable and easier on the hips as it gives the saddle more of a twist ensuring the rider does not sit too wide.
The underside is made of a thick fleece. The saddle has 4 D-rings.
The fork insert (comes with wide insert) can be exchanged for a new one (see here). High-quality conchas with leather strings for decoration and to attach the sheepskin seat to the saddle base.
We have a specially devised rigging system on this saddle: Two girth straps run through and over padding made of soft leather to avoid coat irritation or even worse pressure points on the sensitive belly. Dressage girth is required. You can choose which Barefoot fenders you like, but the usual fenders are these
. You can use any of the Barefoot stirrups.
The fork (size wide) can be changed as with all Barefoot saddles (see size guide). These are available to purchase separately.
The saddle comes in size 1 & 2.
