Barefoot Soft Walk Treeless Fursaddles
The Barefoot Soft Walk Treeless Fursaddle is made with genuine sheepskin and synthetic Drytex material. Barefoot of Germany created this saddle in response to requests for an affordable saddle with sheepskin for rider's comfort and Barefoot's Vertabrae Protection System for your horse's comfort. The VPS System provides back protection for your horse's spine while being flexible to allow your horse's muscles to develop without causing any pressure points.
For the rider, the seat is super soft with foam padding that surrounds you in comfort. In addition there is anatomically shaped cushion, secured with velcro, under the genuine sheepskin seat to create more of a twist, is easier on the hips, and helps the rider from sitting too wide.
Real sheepskin is used for the seat of the Soft Walk Fur Saddles. Sheepskin has many good properties as a natural product. The sheepskin ensures an even temperature, absorbs moisture instantly and releases it 7 times faster than synthetic fibers. Sheepskin naturally has a disinfecting property, is odor-neutralizing and dirt-repellent. This self-cleaning power is amplified in the fresh air so it is beneficial to remove it from the base and shake it out sometimes. This reduces dust and dirt and airs out the fur at the same time. To remove more intensive dirt you can gently comb out first and if needed rub with a wet cloth. The coat is durable and stays beautiful for many years.
If the sheepskin seat should become completely soaked with water, it should be taken off the saddle and drying separately. Do not dry in the sun or on the heater because this will make the fur brittle.
The underside is made of thick fleece, and there are four D rings. Quality conchos with strings attach the sheepskin seat to the base.
This saddle sells with the medium/standard pommel insert that fits a large variety of horse's conformations. Other pommel sizes can be ordered separately if needed.
