Barefoot Ride-On Bareback Pad - Child - Pony Size
Riding without a saddle is now possible without harming your horse!
Most bareback pads or riding cushions are rather bad for the horse and cause discomfort rather than comfort, because the girth runs directly across the back and distributes all pressure onto one, maybe two spinous processes. The Barefoot Ride-On-Pad has a V-girthing system stabilized by patches on the billets, which help to distribute the pressure along the entire pad. Use with any dressage style girth. A dressage style girth is not included so you can choose the correct size for your horse or pony.
Designers deliberately decided against including stirrup attachments as standing in stirrups would lead to pressure points. The Ride-On-Pad is padded with high density foam in alternating thickness and is very stable on the horse's back due to the sympanova material on the underside. The upper side is made from microfiber which ensures good grip for the rider even at speed.

Clean the pad with a damp cloth or a soft brush. If very dirty it can even be washed in the washing machine on gentle cycle.
