Seat Savers and Hip Saver
Barefoot Hip Saver
Heather Moffett | Moffat
I bought this HM seat saver to go on my Barefoot Nevada saddle, it added enough comfort for me to go on the fun ride that i had planned. I do have hip issues and without this my treeless was just a bit too wide.I was a bit dubious initially to be honest but it did for me at least make a difference. You can also get the seat saver, but luckily for me I found the above on EBay! Suzann
Barefoot Pommel Insert – different sizes including soft
Shoulder Shims- Ansur
Barefoot- pu foam, rubber, memory foam and hard use. Photo shows pu foam Barefoot inserts.
Reflective Exercise Sheets
Luna Rider Wraparound Sheet
Ansur Enduro and Ansur Westernaire
Dorsal Supplement – Solution
Dream Team Universal
DREAM TEAM UNIVERSAL – I liked the material on this pad, and the fact it is a dressage square style. It suits the Dream Team saddle but it is also ok for other treeless and treed saddles. I used it under a freeform and a Dartmoor Treefree.
Equitex GP / Equitex High Wither
EQUITEX GP – shown here in white with Freeform
EQUITEX HIGH WITHER – shown in brown. Used under a Freeform with a youngster who was growing and a bit bum high. Only used for a year. Did the job it was meant for. These come in blue as well which suited her better.
Griffin High Wither Gullet Free
Griffin Nummed Shimmy
HAF – Shown here in blue. The haf pad has a wool underside option or the sympanova. It doesn’t have any straps to hold it in place, but i have used this pad under my Freeform and the Dartmoor Treefree ok. Washes well, easy to keep clean and has the option to shim.
Libra- discontinued pad. But comes up for sale. Please change the inserts from the original rigid type. 🙂
I bought my first treeless saddle and this was the pad that came with it. I have an extremely wide Highland, and i use it without the inserts. It is a great pad. Really comfortable and padded. (Other inserts available. They used to be too rigid)
Polypad- no review as yet.
Prolite Wither Pad
Rydair 10mm (Aus)
Toklat Saddle Pad
Trekker with Pockets
