From what I have read about them is that if you have trouble with the saddle slipping already then your barefoot saddle will slip too. But the saddle stays in place just as good as a regular saddle. They are not like bareback pads, you can put weight in the stirrups. And you can get on on a demo, but you have to pay for it with a credit/debit card and you have to pay for shipping both ways. When they get the saddle back after the trial they refund the money to your card but you don't get refunded the shipping cost.
