Barefoot "Save-My-Spine" Surcingles

Lunge your horse without pressure to the withers!

Most surcingles apply a nutcracker-like pressure onto the horse's withers, either to the sides or on top of the spinous processes. Barefoot Saddlery of Germany has solved this problem: underneath the Barefoot Surcingle the withers remains unrestricted and there is no pressure - neither onto the withers nor along the sides. The supports on both sides are padded softly and extra wide, so that muscles can develop without being squeezed. If additional padding is needed under the surcingle, consider the Barefoot Surcingle Pad - also available on this website (see last image with pad attached).

Five sturdy rings are applied on both sides, so all auxiliary reins, such as side-reins, can be attached, but also long-reins or double lunging reins can be used in various positions.

The Barefoot Surcingle DOES NOT INCLUDE the girth - Use with any dressage length girth that fits your horse or pony.

The Barefoot Surcingle is made from genuine, sturdy leather, with a soft and adjusting underlay made from foam which is covered by suede leather. The surcingle comes standard with a medium inlay which fits most horse's backs. Additional inserts can be purchased ranging from narrow to extra wide - more information on the Barefoot Pommels are available on this website. Use with a standard dressage girth.

5 of 5 Surcingle January 16, 2022
Reviewer: Kerri Gaffney from Penn Yan, NY United States  
High quality product- well made. I bought this because I do quite a bit of in hand, and also lunge with the Equiband system. I could not find another surcingle that didn't somehow put pressure on the spine. I have had a Barefoot Cheyenne for well over 20 years so once I found this it was a no brainer.
