Riding without a saddle is now possible without harming your horse. Equestrian bareback pads or riding cushions are often not very good for the horse, causing 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 V-shaped girthing which distributes the pressure along the entire pad.
Barefoot deliberately decided against stirrup attachments as standing in stirrups would lead to pressure points.
The 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 microfibre 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.
