wonderful! just make sure to get them without the stirrups as stirrups are dangerous when used on a bareback pad

I have one with stirrups, and I know it's dangerous, but I use it anyway :P. My only complaint/suggestion is that it falls back behind my horses' withers ALL the time, so get one with a breastcollar!

They are good in hot weather. And keep the butt clean. :)

lol yeah equiniphile i'm sure like any piece of equipment, if you use it right it's safe and not harmful, i personally would never use one bacause occasionally my horse trips and i'm sure me using stirrups would put me upside down when she did that haha! and yes Fantastic in hot weather because your not sitting on the hot sweaty horse, and your butt definitely stays clean! i use a wool bareback pad so my butt sticks right to it and i don't have to worry about comming off, however in the winter when i ride bareback, i prefer no pad because the horse will actually keep you really warm and you can use minimal padding for clothes lol

I have one of these: Bareback Pads - The Stick Lady natural horsemanship equipment and I think I like riding it it more than a saddle lol! Its nice and cool in the summer and keeps you from getting dirt/ horse sweat on you :)

If you (or someone you know) is handy with a needle, you can buy rings and sew them on using a peice of heavy fabric or leather :)

LOL, yeah mine was a present too! I love how it takes your weight off of your horses spine. :)

Question - bareback pads with stirrups are dangerous. I can accept that, but why are they more dangerous than a regular saddle? (Not arguing at all - I don't know enough about the subject to pose a valid argument - just looking for info)
