Care and Maintenance of Barefoot Products


A = length of saddle

B = length of seat

C = length of skirt / saddle flap

Barefoot saddles are hand made. This makes every saddle unique. The measurements are therefore just reference points and can vary slightly.

Size 1:  recommended for clothes sizes :

Ladies 8-12 Gents 28-32

A = approx. 54 cm  B =  approx. 35 cm  C = approx 38cm 

Size 2 : recommended for clothes size :

Ladies 14-18 Gents : 34-38

A = approx. 57 cm   B = approx. 40 cm   C = approx. 39cm

Please note: The lenght of the saddle (A) is the overall length. As there is no pressure at all in the rear part, the horse can move freely. Even if the saddle looks a little too long on your horse, choose the size according to your measurements. It is very important that the saddle fits the rider well, so he has enough space between thighs and pommel and does not sit on the pommel or cantle, which would limit the saddles adaptability. The horse's back is free of any pressure at the rear - the Barefoot can even be lifted slightly at the cantle with a rider on board.

cracking saddle this! after a week riding western in the states i decided that i wanted a western saddle but was concerned that my ex-racehorse wouldn't take both my weight and the weight of a conventional western saddle. went for the arizona and haven't looked back! i find it extremely comfortable as does my nag! he seems to move with more fluidity and i can 'feel' him a lot better through the saddle. looking forward to trying it out on our young irish sport horse if the wife lets me! thoroughly recommended.

Hi, I would like to update my review first sent in 2005. My Arizone is brilliant - it took a little while to get used to and settle down but now it is superb. My cob goes extremely well in it and stretches down beautifully, he is freer in all paces in this saddle. I did try a friends western saddle but it was too long for him so bought the Arizona. The only problem I had was getting the fork out to exchange it for the smaller one to try on my pony. It was difficult and did not fit anyway so the original one went back and stayed in, the zip did not close properly after that but it is not a problem. It is much lighter than conventional western saddles. I also use a Dr Cooks bitless bridle which he loves, as his mouth is quite sensitive due to an old injury. I use a Lodge rope half-bosal for to and from the field - as he is often ridden bareback to and from the field. Many thanks Gill
