Barefoot Merlyn Dressage Treeless Saddles

Innovative Dressage or Eventing saddle made of soft leather with freely positionable safety stirrup bar and flexible V- girthing. The Merlyn model is ideal for small horses or smaller riders due to the extra short saddle flap, but of course also for large horses.

Ultra-lightweight saddle with the proven VPS system. The narrow designed seat and the extra short saddle flap allow a very good contact of the rider's leg to the pony or horse.

The seat is removable - this not only gives the saddle the desired flexibility and adaptability on the horse's back, but also allows the open stirrup attachment to be adjusted exactly to the rider. The open stirrup attachment is velcroed between the seat and the saddle base and can be easily varied. The seat with a non-slip seat surface is anatomically shaped, the extra soft knee roll stabilizes the rider's leg in the saddle and gives framing support.

The girthing is flexible and V-shaped. This saddle, like all barefoot saddles, may be saddled a little further forward, because the horse's shoulder can move freely under the barefoot saddle at all times. The rider is thus positioned directly above the horse's natural center of gravity, allowing the horse to balance the rider's weight more easily. Due to the low cantle (approx. 2 cm), the saddle lies a little lower in the rear area than our other saddle models.

Saddle Trial Program

You can try the saddle for one week (7 days) after receiving the saddle to decide if it�s a good fit for you and your horse. Keep it clean, keep the tags. Ride in a controlled area, do not go on a trail ride. If you mark it up, scratch it, or damage it, you cannot return it. You cannot return a used saddle pad or girth/cinch. Use your own saddle pad to try the saddle if possible. If after one week you decide to return the saddle, you will be charged a $100 restocking fee and you pay to ship the saddle back to us. If you would like to try a saddle for a week, Message us sales@barefootsaddlesusa.com
