The Best Bareback Pad

BarebackPadFor a long time, I’ve been wanting to improve on various design aspects of bareback pads now commonly available, and often expensive.
These new bareback pads are made locally by Mobile Saddler, Rick Allen, here in Tasmania with top quality materials.
The new design features are:

    • Shaped back seam curved for a higher wither.
    • Will not tighten directly onto the backbone.
    • Changeable english or western girthing system (girth not incl.)
    • D rings front and back to tie on your coat, lead rope, water bottle etc.
    • Made from quality 16mm felt covered with black or brown suede.

To purchase The Best Bareback Pad go to the Natural Horse World Store

    The best bare back pads are the ones that are from Europe. A lot of Classical riders work in bareback pads. I have never seen pads here like there. I would love to import them to the U.S.

    This one is from the UK.

    These are from Germany from a company in CA. Very pricey.

      Thanks for your comments Susan, however, I don’t endorse any bareback pad that has provision for stirrups, as without the use of a proper treeless saddle pad under the bareback pad (and great care not to use for long periods), there is risk of injury or pain to the horse’s backbone from using stirrups on any bareback pad. The other downside of these lambswool pads is they can be hot to ride in (in warm climates), are hard to clean and can collect grass seeds. I have ridden in a Christ Bareback pad and found the knee rolls restrict your position. However, I can see dressage riders would find these type of pads very appealing, and are more likely to pay the higher prices.
