Bare back pad

Ok I used to ride western, now I ride English. I've ridden bareback a handful of times back when I used to ride western. Honestly it does make me nervous but I LOVE it. I was considering purchasing a bareback pad for future use for when I purchase a horse of my own.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

I asked this on another foum, and I was told to either go completely bareback, or find one with no stirrups. It puts pressure on their back since there is no tree.

I like the best friend's bareback pad.
It had grippies on the underside of the pad as well as the girth.

I find it to be very comfortable if you have a bony horse

I agree, do not get a bareback pad with stirrups. They are quite dangerous and gives the rider a false sense of security IMO

I ride bareback more than I ride with a saddle (i too ride English =]) - but I would suggest using a pad to get used to it. Especially when they trot, its so hard to stop bouncing! Hehe =p
Try horse.com, they have LOADS of different types/colors/makes/brands =]

I'm using one like Appy posted and it's very comfy. Certainly keeps my butt clean!

Get one with a real girth. DO NOT get one that just has a nylon strap that goes under the belly. It's not comfy for the horse and it slips around easily.

If you can afford it, I LOVE the Skito Bareback pad. A friend of mine has one and I borrow it all the time . It has memory foam inside and is so comfy on the tush. It has a grippy seat patch and it uses a standard Dressage girth.

If you want something more wallet friendly, check out the Best Friend Bareback pads. They are more affordable and well made.

Reviews: Supracor Bareback & Training PadThe Tack Room, Inc. Your online horse tack store. English saddle, english bridle, english riding apparel and clothing for you and your horse.

Supracor pads are incredible for your horse's back and hold up really well. They're also really comfortable for the rider. They're expensive, but well worth the money. I've had my Supracor reining pad for over 7 years and it's still in excellent condition.
