Fleece-Saddle with 'Physio' Underside
Barefoot® Fleece-Saddle made from real sheep wool. The large knee rolls add support to the rider's legs whilst the high, soft cantle encloses and supports rider at the back.
The underside is made of Sympanova to prevent slipping on horse's back.
The undersite has an additional shimable pad that is velcroed on. Included are 2 sets of shims (1 pair of cellular rubber shims and 1 set of soft PU foam). The shimable pad ensures spinal clearance and also additional protection for the horse's back. Difficult saddle positions can be balanced by cutting shims.
The Barefoot® Fleece Saddle has no stirrup attachments to avoid any pressure on the horse's back muscles.
With most bareback pads or fleece saddles, girth attachment runs straight across the back and puts pressure on one or two spinous processes - the Barefoot® Ride-On-Pads and the Barefoot® Fleece Saddle are more horse-friendly: The concealed girth straps are mounted centrally on skirts and therefore distribute pressure over the whole area.
The Barefoot® Fleece Saddle gives the rider a secure, comfortable seat close to the horse and is stable on the horse's back due to non-slip underside.

This product is made from pure sheep's wool. Sheep wool as rougly the same anti-bacterial and pressure absorbing properties as sheepskin but there is one important difference: Wool is simply shorn from the sheep and a relativeley painless process, whilst sheepskin can only be taken off a dead animal. The wool of the sheep is then applied to a carrier material for further processing. This means the production is animal friendly.
Colour: fleece natural, edging and girth strap cover black
Tip: The Barefoot® Fleece-Saddle is not suited for smaller ponies due to long saddle skirts and rigging. We recommend: use Barefoot® Ride-On-Pad in pony size for smaller ponies like Shetlands.
Tips for cleaning: Brush out loose dirt & hair with brush. Cold wash by hand possible - afterwards pull into shape but do not dry over radiator.
