Do you do a lot of bareback riding? Or are you just looking to be more comfortable in a saddle?

Yeah I think that my horse will be fine with it I ride him bareback alot. But the info section on the site says it causes less pain for horses then a regular saddle. I just wish there was some way to try one out before I buy it!

im just looking for something different I ride bareback around the barn alot but I mainly trail ride. And I just don't feel like the saddle I have now is comfortable for my horse :( I go on rides as long as 15 to 20 miles and I want my horse to be as comfortable as possible

I can totally understand where you are coming from. I too worry about the comfort of my horse under saddle. It's bad enough she has to lug my lard butt around let alone a bulky uncomfortable saddle. I think I would really like one they do look comfy but as I am saddleless right now and really need to get my own (instead of borrowing) I can't afford to wait and get one. But maybe Santa might bring me one????

Yeah! That santa is a pretty good guy! I have a saddle right now but I have had it for so long I swear it had spread out because if I don't use a super thick blanket it sits down on my horse's withers. And on long rides I know its not comfortable at all!

I have had heard two sides to it. Some say it is great because it gives freedom of movement and is more flexible in adjusting/fitting to your horses back which makes sense to me but I often wondered about weigh distribution and slipping. Any chance you can try one out? I'd also like to learn more about these types of saddles.

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.

I sure will! I am tempted to get one on trial if I don't find anyone local who rides one that I can test out. But it maight be a few months before I have the money to buy one!
