German made Barefoot treeless saddles are now available in Australia through Mountain Horse Trading.
Barefoot Fleece Saddle with physio underside
The Barefoot Fleece Saddle is made from real sheep wool. The large knee rolls add support to the riders legs whilst the high, soft cantle encloses and supports the rider at the back.
The underside is made from Sympanova to prevent slipping on the hose's back.
The underside has an additional shimable pad that is velcroed on. Included are 2 sets of shims (1 pair of cellular rubber shims and 1 set of PU foam). The shimable pad ensures spinal clearance and also additional protection for the horse's back. Difficult saddle positions can be balance by cutting shims.
The barefoot Fleece saddle has no stirrup attachments to avoid any pressure on the horse's back muscles.
With most bareback pads or fleece saddles, girth attachments run straight across the back which puts pressure on one or two of the spinous processes - The concealed girth straps are mounted centrally on skirts and therefore distribute pressure over the whole area.
The Barefoot Fleece saddle gives the rider a secure, comfortable seat close to the horse and is stable on the horse's back due to non-slip underside.
