The anatomically shaped, duo coloured, soft Nubuck leather knee rolls, incorporated in the detachable seat of this Barefoot® Saddle, frame the rider to allow for a deep and very secure seat whether out hacking or in the arena. The Barefoot 'Barrydale' is particularly popular with endurance riders - strenuous up and down - no problem with this saddle. Your legs are precisely positioned, the saddle stays secure, the horse's back pressure free - a must especially on long distance rides.
The stirrup bar can be freely positioned between saddle & seat to suit your preferred seat position and your size.
Flexible, V-Shaped girthing system. The saddle is also suitable for difficult girthing positions. It lies a little further forward than conventional saddles, therefore positions the rider directly above the horse's center of gravity.
Your horse will find it easier to balance your weight.
With this saddle you will feel your horse's muscles work and the movement of his back, the basic requirements for more advanced riding.
Suitable for short framed horses.
9 D-rings to secure saddle pad or luggage. As with all Barefoot saddles, the pommel insert (medium size) can be exchanged. Different width inserts are available to purchase separately.
