Bareback pad

Straightness trainingRiding with a bareback pad is an effective way of riding during which you are aware of correcting and improving yourself.

You develop your feeling because you can feel what is happening underneath you better without a saddle: the movement, the bending, the use of the back, the positioning of the legs, tension and relaxation.

The pad is meant to 'ride without saddle' but enhances comfort for you and your horse, it gives your buttocks and your horse’s back more protection.

Advantages

  • It is a fun way to ride and it offers variation in your training.
  • The feeling “without saddle” remains, you can exactly feel what the horse does.
  • It gives you close contact with the horse.
  • You improve your balance.
  • You develop an independent seat.
  • It gives you more confidence.
  • The pad keeps you clean, no hairs or dust stick to your riding pants.
  • If you want to save time, you can “saddle up” your horse quickly.
  • There is a handle for more safety.
  • The pad gives more grip than a bare horseback thanks to the rough material.
  • The bareback pad can also be used during the preparations of the backing process.

I have a bare bag pad, I ride every trail through the mountains and lands with my barepad! I can ride hours and hours, it's really comfortable for me and overall for my horse! weightless and totally flexible it's really better for his back.
I really recommend it!!

Hi Arianna, thank you for your comment. Compared to bare back riding, the pad enhances comfort for you and your horse, it gives your buttocks and your horse's back more protection.

You can find the bareback pad in our webshop:
