Barefoot Physio Ride-On Bareback


The Barefoot Physio Ride-On Bareback Pads incorporate a special section underneath for optional foam shim inserts. This section is attached with Velcro® and the pad is provided with 2 different sets of shims. One is rubber 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 shims 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 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.

Great for my 20-year-old draft cross July 2, 2018
Reviewer: Catherine Hiller from Rochester, NY United States  
My 17-hand horse has never had much of a topline - and he wasn't ridden for about a year and a half before I got him so the muscles were further atrophied.  He has a very good, heavy dressage saddle with a Mattes shimmed pad but I wanted to ride him bareback.  His back is so bony riding without a pad is out of the question.  The Physio Ride-On Bareback Pad is perfect for us.  The extra shimming makes my horse's back super comfortable for me and I'm sure for him.  I love the non-slip underside.  The only drawbacks: with the v-girthing side panels attached my dressage girth is way too long for the pad and I had to buy a shorter girth for it.; and though the design and construction are high quality I would have preferred more sturdy materials like real suede and leather billets.  Other than that, I am extremely pleased with the product and price.

great saddle but difficult inserting the pads May 30, 2018
Reviewer: JEAN LARSON from Princeton, MN United States  
I love this saddle!  I would have given five stars if the pads were inserted prior to arrival - instead, it took me quite some time to finally get them inserted and fit properly.

Sitting on a cloud December 28, 2017
Reviewer: Nicole Baar from Roswell, GA United States  
Everyone who's sat in it say its the comfiest thing ever! Definitely better than any saddle I've owned.
Somehow the ride-on leaves tons of spine clearance. My horse is an elder thoroughbred with huge withers and it just brushes his back with the medium-thickness pads inserted, but sweat marks afterwards make it seem like its not a problem, and he certainly doesn't act like it is.
I would 100% recommend this pad.
Its a touch large, though no bigger than any other pad Ive seen really, but I do have a small Arabian (14h) that it just swallows up. My huge thoroughbred uses a 56" girth and I use a 22" dressage girth with this pad but its still high enough that I don't (can't) use those extra inserts between the girth and saddle. Still, it looks good on him. Doesn't slip.
I'm not sure if I would suggest getting the physio over the regular ride-on, since even without the extra padding it seems perfect, but I don't regret spending the little extra in the slightest! Best bareback pad ever.

I am elated!!! July 6, 2017
Reviewer: Malia S from Davie, FL United States  
I've owned a barefoot Cheyenne since before the VPS. Then we got a new Cheyenne with the VPS. Great concept! So when I saw this bareback pad I knew it would be perfect, and it is! I hack with or even work with it. Its marvelous!!! It's a bit pricey but oh so worth the money!!
