Barefoot Physio Ride-On Bareback Pads

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"

Length from center of pad to last hole on billet - 34"

To Clean:
Clean the pad with a damp cloth or a soft brush.

Reviewer: Sidney from MANOR, TX United States  
These bareback pads are worth the cost. Dupes don't compare. And I just absolutely love the shade of brown they use..

5 of 5 Everyone Should Own This Pad! May 26, 2024
Reviewer: Mandy H from St Louis, MO United States  
I was looking for a pad to go with my TCS (Total Contact Saddle) and read many positive reviews. I knew this was going to be a great pad for the horse, but didn’t know how much I would love it. THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER RIDDEN ON! It feels secure, similar to a close contact or event saddle, but it allows you to feel your horse’s back and be far more connected than you would in a treed saddle.
It fits my wide, no withered QH as beautifully as it does my shark-finned Warmblood. I’m a professional bodyworker and have been very impressed by the way my horses’ toplines have all felt: soft, supple, and palpably tension-free with each ride. This is a very well-built pad that I hope lasts a long time!

5 of 5 Game Changer December 13, 2023
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Duvall, WA United States  
Fantastic for both my senior and my young geldings. I take off the physio attachments for the young one since he doesn't need to them. Works well under the TCS type saddle as well.

5 of 5 Love It! May 26, 2022
Reviewer: Zach from WA United States  
I got this for my gelding and it was well worth it. He’s an older guy without much muscle so I wanted something that would be a little more comfortable for him while we ride and this works beautifully. It’s by far the most comfortable bareback pad I’ve tried and it’s comfy even after riding for a few hours. I’m happy with how it fits him and it doesn’t slide or move around while I’m on him. The billets give you a lot of space to have different sized horses being able to wear it but it would probably be too long if you have a short backed pony or horse. I do find the add in shims are helpful for longer trail rides and I like having the D rings to clip things to.

5 of 5 Great customer service December 25, 2021
Reviewer: Jessica Polk from Winter haven , FL United States  
I received my pad and love the quality and feel of it. Unfortunately, one of the foam pads tore in half as I was trying to place it inside the pad. Their customer service was outstanding in replacing it quickly. Thank you for the great product and service.
