Barefoot Wellington Dressage Treeless Saddles
Barefoot Wellington Dressage Treeless Saddles are designed with the demands of the dressage rider in mind. It is a beautiful soft leather saddle, and void of D rings for a sleek, elegant look. This saddle has a deeper seat, higher cantle, and narrower twist in the seat. With the cut out shape of the under flap, the rider's leg will feel very close contact with the horse.
"The Wellington 'settles' on her backs so well - it allows my leg to hang in a much more natural position for dressage. SUPER comfortable...Really couldn't believe it as I have ridden in most of the Barefoot saddles at one point or another. The Cheyenne had been my favorite until I hopped on this one!"
"...let me tell you.. this chestnut stallion [in the photo above] has a measured 15" back (where the saddle should actually sit) THIS saddle is the only saddle that sits me far enough forward to not sore him. I previously used the Cheyenne and it was fine, too.. but obviously not appropriate for the show and did not allow my leg to lie flat enough. As you know, MANY of my clients have now purchased the Wellington." - trainer, Jodi Tuft.
The deep seat is anatomically designed to contour to the rider and has a non-slip surface. It features prominent, supportive knee rolls that are preferred by dressage riders worldwide. Extra knee rolls can be placed under the contoured flap. It has a flexible V shape girth.
This Wellington Dressage Saddle has an open stirrup attachment and is adjustable to the rider as it is attached with Velcro under the seat. It can be positioned so the stirrups hang exactly where you want them.
Thank you ladies for helping me with this amazing purchase!! I absolutely love it and feel so fancy and spoiled every time I ride! It fits her so well and she moves so nicely under it, truly my favorite saddle ever!! (And I have way too many!!) - Emma Vancour Damier
As with all Barefoot saddles, it will not restrict movement or impede the shoulder. It allows the placement of the saddle to be farther forward than treed saddles, and puts the rider in a great position over the horse's center of gravity. This allows the horse to carry the weight of the rider more easily.

Saddle Trial Program
You can try the saddle for one week (7 days) after receiving the saddle to decide if it’s a good fit for you and your horse. Keep it clean, keep the tags. Ride in a controlled area, do not go on a trail ride. If you mark it up, scratch it, or damage it, you cannot return it. You cannot return a used saddle pad or girth/cinch. Use your own saddle pad to try the saddle if possible. If after one week you decide to return the saddle,
you will be charged a $100 restocking fee and you pay to ship the saddle back to us. If you would like to try a saddle for a week, Message us firstname.lastname@example.org
