Barefoot Physio Ride-On Bareback Pads

Currently available only in Brown

The Barefoot Physio Ride-On Bareback Pads incorporate a special section underneath for optional foam inserts. This section is attached with Velcro® and the pad is provided with 2 different sets of inserts. One is dense foam and the other is soft PU foam. This pad offers great Physio properties and a saddle-less ride that won't harm your horse. Inserting the foam inserts give additional protection to your horse's back and ensures clearance from the spine. Specifically recommended for very slender riders and heavy riders. Also for horses that have visible spinal processes and badly muscled backs. Suitable also for older horses.

Most bareback pads or riding cushions can be bad for a horse, causing discomfort. Usually caused by their girths running directly across the back, which distributes all pressure into one or possibly two spinous processes. This Barefoot Physio Ride-On Pad has V-girthing with fleece-lined Billet Patches which works to distribute pressure along the entire pad. Also, there are no stirrup attachments, as pressure points would occur when standing in stirrups.

The Ride-On pad's high density foam padding in alternate thicknesses is extremely stable on your horse's back. The properties of the Sympanova material on the pad's underside makes the pad non-slip, while the upper side is made of microfiber. The upper ensures good grip for riders, even at speed. The horse-friendly girthing has patches with 100% sheep fleece on the underside. This stabilizes the girthing, and doesn't irritate your horse's coat along the side. The Bareback Pad can be used in combination with the Barefoot Sheepskin Dressage Girth or any other dressage style girth.

The design of the pad incorporates a sturdy nylon grab handle, and D-rings for attaching bags.

Note: This Bareback Pad DOES NOT include a girth. This is so you can choose the correct size for your horse.

Topline 19 1/2"
Flap Length - 18 1/2"
Flap Width - 17 1/2"
Length from center of pad to last hole on billet - 34"

To Clean:
Clean the pad with a damp cloth or a soft brush.
If very dirty, remove inserts, and it can be washed in the washing machine on gentle cycle.
Do NOT put it in the dryer.

3 of 5 physio ride on June 13, 2020
Reviewer: Deborah Boyle from Redondo Beach, CA United States  
very comfy for me. however due to high withers and swayback it slips back. I do not think there is anyway to avoid.  with or w/o a breastcollar.  But we use it everyday and we make it work for us.

4 of 5 Great product! March 2, 2020
Reviewer: REBECCA JONES from West Chester, PA United States  
I have ridden exclusively bareback for the past 5 years.  I have tried all the other pads, this one is hands down the best.  Super comfy for both horse and rider.  My only suggestion would be for the western style with pockets to be offered with front d rings for a chest collar - had to purchase the english style because of this but I love it anyway.

5 of 5 Better than any saddle! December 2, 2019
Reviewer: Patricia Kowalski King from Muncie, IN United States  
I own a Standardbred who is nearly impossible to fit for a saddle - huge, long withers, some atrophy behind the shoulders, and a short, straight back. And a prominent spine even when he is in good flesh. I prefer riding bareback but it was uncomfortable for both of us. The first ride on my Physio was amazing! I could not get over how comfortable & secure I felt, and my horse carried himself in a way I'd not experienced before- long, low, and so relaxed. Every ride since has been better. I did read reviews and used a 22" girth, which was perfect. I also use an all-purpose English pad under my Physio, as my horse is sensitive to the grippy material. Thank you for making such a great product!

3 of 5 Love Hate relationship/ an expensive purchase March 31, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from United States  
I love the pad in general. If I had it to do over I would not get the physio inserts.  The inserts did not come installed in the ‘pockets’ . I thought I could remove the pockets and take it for a quick ride without...well there are large Velcro squares that hold the pockets to the underside of the pad. So you can not ride the pad without the pockets unless you put another saddle pad under the bareback pad and all of a sudden this bareback pad is almost as much trouble as a real saddle.  Also I am trying to figure out if I can convert the English rigging to a Dee ring for Western type rigging. The two English billets with the connector pad that slides off the billets is a pain for this traditional Western rider.  Finding an English girth that is short enough to allow the pad to fit my smaller horses has not been easy.  The pad is super pricey and not 100% what I had hoped for.
