Innovative Treeless Dressage saddle in soft leather with extra short flaps, suitable for Cobs and other native types, or smaller riders.

Ultra-light saddle with Barefoot's VPS system. The extra narrow seat and special flat and short saddle flaps allow excellent contact between the rider's leg and the horse. The  saddle is extremely flexible and adapts itself precisely to the horse's body shape. The open "e-bar" stirrup leather attachment under the seat can easily be adjusted, giving the rider an exact fit.  Riders with unequal leg length can achieve an optimal position by moving the stirrup attachment.
The saddle has a lower cantle than other Barefoot models. The anatomically contoured seat has a non-slip surface; the soft knee block gently stabilises the rider's leg into the correct position. The saddle is fitted with a flexible V-girthing system.

As with all Barefoot saddles, the medium sized pommel insert can be exchanged (available to purchase separately).

Saddle cover included.
