Barefoot Ride-On Bareback Pad

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. 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.

  • 3 D-rings to attach bags
  • Grab handle made from sturdy nylon
  • Distributes pressure evenly
  • Horse friendly V-style English girthing
  • Non-slip underside
See Sizing Tab for measurements.

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

Wonderful way to ride! April 2, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from USA  
I did extensive research on pads made all over the world and finally settled on this pad for use with all of my horses - short backed, long backed, high withered, etc. I love how it fits them all and it provides lots of comfort for extra long trail rides. I prefer not to ride with a saddle for closer contact and a more natural feel - this is the bridge that helps me (and my horses) enjoy a bareback for hours at a time. I would love it even better if it didn't have the non-slip underside as I cannot believe it is 100% comfortable to the horse, but I just put a thin pad between it and my horse and carry on. Great job with this pad, Barefoot!!

Best Bareback Pad Ever January 27, 2017
Reviewer: Blu Iris from round rock, TX United States  
This pad took a while to get to me because it shipped from Germany, but it was well worth the wait. It is very well padded for the horse and contoured in the wither. The seat is well padded for the rider and is covered with a suede like fabric, which helps you stay put. I have ridden in all three gates out hacking and felt safe & secure every time. A fairly short dressage girth is needed because of the side pads that are part of the girthing system. I could not be happier with this pad!

Solves all of your saddle fitting problems! September 27, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
It is fantastic. It doesn't dig into the horses wither, in fact, it has some clearance (probably not on high wither horses)!! But you are still close enough to the horses back to have a good connection. Great cushioning. Keeps you from sliding around on the pad, and the pad doesn't move on the horses back at all. I love it, and haven't had a horse that doesn't like it more than a saddle!!!!! It is fantastic. It will solve all of your saddle fitting problems!

Fabulous bareback pad! August 7, 2014
Reviewer: Jini from Blaine, WA  
I have ridden bareback for 38 years and this is the BEST bareback pad ever!! It has a great "sticky" underlayer which really helps it stay put - but yet it does not pull on the horse's hair. I bought the real sheepskin girth to go with it and all my horses are happy to see it coming. The padding is thick enough to cushion the spine (and your lady bits), but not so thick that you lose 'contact'. I'm think I'm going to buy the other one with bags next... :)
