Lovely horse and an equally lovely post.
It looks as if this pad is available in a variety of colours.
My favourite was always the blue but it now comes in six colours. The company stocking looks to be based in France, (link provided) but please see if this can be sourced if you do not wish to import.
I am not 100% familiar with this range. So I welcome any input readers may have to the following query.
My changeable pommel is D3 –
I have completely no idea what width it is (in cm) – could you please
explain it to me please? Gullets for this saddle are defined as
Gullet: K1, K2, K3, K4, K5. There is no “D” as in my saddle… I’ve
got problems also with ascertainment, if this one (D3) is suitable for
my horse. I don’t want it to be too wide or too narrow.
My last question is about the small plastic elements hidden between panels
and seat. I’ve never seen anything like this in regular saddles. Could
you please tell me how to properly use them? Can I remove them and if so
– what then will happened?
There are various dealers for this pad.
The Trekking pad and Profi pad have the inclusion of a seat. The seat supports the lumber section of the riders back and they have two designs offering this.
Material. The upper is a The upper material is from non slip velour leather and the bottom of the pad is made of a foam and with a special textile material resistant to the horse’s sweat, as well as in our riding pads. The pad is also perforated velour leather and the underside a perforated foam textile. Non stirrup design. No pad needed underneath, fits straight to the house.
They also have non seat designs with gel or just a basic. It comes in children’s and adult sizes. These pads are measured similar to a treed saddle. It is nice to see a company offering size options up to an 18″ seat as some pads are just way too long.
I came across this company in Australia. Natural Horse World
They stock girth converters to allow you to change the western fitting to English fittings. This can work with any bareback pad. Up until now I had only discovered Cashel. I will be adding this to the useful links.
The ride on physio pads now come in more colours. Petrol, berry and royal blue.
I do not know which countries are stocking the new colours, so please contact Barefoot direct.
I have the original black with the reflective closure.
They have introduced a reflective pair that shines up in-car headlights. Ideally I don’t plan to be out riding if it’s that dark but on dull days the light grey will show up better than my current black, in combination with the other hi viz garments.
The weather is so changeable in an hour this will be a good addition to your wardrobe. These are great if you are likely to get caught in a light shower and as they are wind proof it keeps your legs that bit warmer.
Available from Amazon and some ebay sellers.
This is a review by Martha who uses these pads on her Freisians.
This pad would be too padded for me, but read this bloggers lovely product.
I love equi-shopping! I’m sure most equestrians and horse lovers alike can vouch for that one. While my clothing is growing more holes each year my horse is enjoying her new sidepull bride, Barefoot Physio Bareback pad and her ex$pen$ive Hemp Oil supplement (more on that later). Maybe we could all just oogle at these gorgeous details on this sidepull bridle from Knavish Designs.
You may remember I posted this gorgeous thing on my holiday wishlist and I think you could call this an early birthday present for Saphira. Mary Anne at Knavish Designs was helpful, collaborative and open to suggestions. I asked if I could incorporate a ring on the noise piece for light academic exercises and she was more than happy to accommodate! The attention to detail and practicality is amazing and I couldn’t be more pleased. Saphira and I will be continuing her training in this! (Click…
