The Bareback Pad Perfected:
Our Double-Billet Bareback Saddle
We believe it's the most secure, most
most versatile bareback pad on the market today
Whether you ride English or Western, bareback
riding is unsurpassed as a way to learn balance, a good
independent seat, timing and coordination. But a bareback
rider may be so worried about falling that he is unable to relax
and move with the horse! Our bareback saddles provide the
best advantages of bareback riding while also giving the rider a
level of security and confidence not possible with a traditional
bareback pad. They feature:
Exclusive girth design fastens with leather billets and English-style girth for unsurpassed security:
- Saddle is nearly slip-proof
- Use your horse's most comfortable girth
- No metal buckle on your horse's belly or side
Split cowhide seat for superior traction and comfort
Padding will not compact or deteriorate
Absorbent and comfortable
Side D-rings for optional stirrup attachment
Sturdy enough to use every day
Comes in many attractive color combinations
Comes with free no-bunch saddle
blanket that helps keep your saddle clean!
for those of you with large horses!
We are now
pleased to offer longer billets on any bareback saddle at no
extra charge. When we first designed our bareback saddle, we
made it to fit horses like our own--basically medium-sized,
around 15 hands. However, since then a number of people with
larger horses have suggested that we make the billets longer, so
they have a wider range of girths available to them.
The large billets are recommended for horses 16 hands or over,
or for shorter horses who have a very round build.
Our regular billets are about 12-13 inches long when measured
from the bottom edge of the saddle, and are the ones seen in all
the photographs on this site. The longer billets are 18-19
inches long (see comparison photo at left.)
NOTE: when ordering a saddle, please specify regular or long billets.
There is no charge for longer billets AT THE TIME YOU ORDER, but
if you return a saddle to have the billets changed, there
will be a $40.00 charge because of the labor involved. This
charge will apply on orders placed after 8-14-2006.
