Barefoot Merlyn Dressage Treeless Saddles

The innovative Barefoot Merlyn Dressage Treeless Saddles are made with beautiful soft leather, and an extra short saddle flap for smaller horses and smaller riders. This saddle has a deep seat with a narrow twist to provide closer contact with your horse.

The saddle has a lower cantle than other Barefoot Saddles with a anatomically contoured seat with a non-slip surface to the leather. Soft knee rolls gently stabilize the rider's leg in the correct position. It has a flexible V shape girth. It is an excellent choice for Icelandics and other smaller breeds.

This Merlyn Dressage Saddle has an open stirrup attachment and is adjustable to the rider as it is attached with Velcro under the seat. It can be positioned so the stirrups hang exactly where you want them. With the S-curve open stirrup attachment, normal stirrup leathers can be used such as the Barefoot Softy Calf English Stirrup Leathers or the Barefoot Dressage Leathers with T-buckles on top and bottom provide a seamless transition under the thigh.

As with all Barefoot saddles, it will not restrict movement or impede the shoulder and is flexible in all dimensions. It allows the placement of the saddle to be farther forward than treed saddles, and puts the rider in a great position over the horse's center of gravity. This allows the horse to carry the weight of the rider more easily.

All Barefoot Saddles are built with the Vertabrae Protection System. This VPS design includes layers of material on either side of the spine for the horse's back protection.

Available in size one only.

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
