Dressage style saddle made of soft cow hide with your horse's comfort in mind.
The Barefoot 'London's' long skirts position the riders legs into the correct position without restricting them thus allowing the rider to sit naturally relaxed and to apply aids easily. The saddle provides the deep seat and close contact feel typical of Barefoot Saddles. The London will enable you to feel your horse's muscles and movements which provides the foundation for refined riding.
Black, thick fleece underside. Padded knee pads. Saddle comes inclusive 2 sets of underlying, movable knee blocks (different sizes) which can be freely postioned (velcroed) to give the rider required support.
Pommel insert (medium) can be exchanged as with all Barefoot Saddles. (different width inserts are available for purchase separately)
This model is also suitable for hacking and therefore comes with 6 D-rings to attach luggage, saddle pad etc.
Reinforced leather on all weight bearing parts.
- flexible in all directions
- promotes the development of good topline
- with VPS system
- weight only approx 5 kg (depending on size)
- close contact feel for refined riding

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. 50 cm B = approx. 34 cm C = approx 55cm
Size 2 : recommended for clothes size :
Ladies 14-18 Gents : 34-38
A = approx. 55 cm B = approx. 39 cm C = approx. 57cm
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.
I receieved my London about 3 weeks ago now and we have already become best friends. This is my first real venture into the world of treeless saddles and I am flabergasted. My horse, a beautiful exracer has discovered a completely different way of going, she if definitely letting me know she is a happy girl, she is happy and very obliging to work. My instructor is amazed at the difference it has made to my position, from my shoulders through to by ankles, I am apparently more relaxed and 'open'. The comfort for rider is second to none. A friends 'non-horsey' husband as looked at the saddle and is so impressed he is even contempleting having a go!!!.
All in all I cannot recommend this saddle highly enough. All I want now is another couple for my other horses.
Well done Barefoot
