Riding without a saddle

Riding pads are treeless pads that are strapped to the horse's back with the help of a saddle girth. The main focus is on freedom of movement for horse and rider. During longer rides, things can quickly become uncomfortable without a saddle. An alternative to a saddle in such a case is a riding pad or a bareback pad. This gives the rider the feeling of sitting on the horse without a saddle, but it is softer and provides padding for the horse's back. In addition, some bareback pads, as these riding pads are also called, have the option of attaching stirrups. This gives you more support on the horse's back. Be aware, however, that the use of stirrups can lead to pressure points, depending on your position. It is best to listen to your horse to see if it's uncomfortable, it will show you what it's most comfortable with.

Bareback riding pads

A bareback riding pad is basically a riding pad with sheepskin padding. Sheepskin is comfortable for the horse's back due to its antimicrobial and sweat-absorbing properties. At the same time, the extra padding makes it comfortable for you as well, so that you can both enjoy the ride. Whether a riding pad or bareback saddle suits you and your horse in the long run depends on a variety of circumstances. The more you weigh and the less muscular your horse is, the more important it is that the pad has sufficient padding to protect the horse's back from pressure points. In general, riding without a saddle is not only fun, it also provides good training for you as a rider, because you can feel your horse's movements and your leg can easily reach the horse's belly. In addition to our own brand, you will find riding pads from Christ.
