    Please note: The length of saddle (A) is the overall length. Since 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 saddle's 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.

    This is a non stock item that has to be ordered in. Simply purchase and we will dispatch as soon as item arrives in with us, usually within 7-14 working days

    Healthy back due to our VPS System

    VPS stands for vertebrae protecting system. It consists of a combination of different materials which enable the rider’s weight to be distributed evenly over the largest possible saddle area .Even at a standing trot, the rider's weight is distributed over the entire saddle surface there is therefore no weight restriction for riders. For more information see: Barefoot flyer VPS-System.

    Adjustable Velcro stirrup suspension

    The adjustable Velcro stirrup suspension is attached between the seat and the saddle substructure and is therefore easy to adjust. This means that the saddle can easily be adapted to riders with different leg lengths simply by moving the stirrup suspension either backwards or forwards.

    Wide Stirrup-Attachment

    Wide stirrup attachment approx .5cm width, suitable for all wide leathers and wide fenders.

    Have had my saddle for at least 28 yes fabulous Just lately it seems to have dropped in either area Think I need a new one Saw one advertised brand new drytex In grasshopper green is it original plz


    I'd just like to say that I bought my first Barefoot saddle from you back in 2005 - or possibly earlier!! It was the basic GP saddle complete with pad and both are still going strong and used daily. I literally could not tell you how many horses it has been used on and how many young horses it has started under saddle. I later bought a Neveda - in about 2007. What an amazing saddle!! I haven't spent as many hours in it as the GP but am starting to lately. I am THE biggest advocate of your products - I have not ridden in anything else since 2006!! I honestly do not think I could ride in a traditional framed saddle now. Thank You for over 15 years of blissfully comfortable riding!!!

    I have had my Barefoot Nevada for the last 4 or 5 years and my horses love it. I now use it on my Dales Pony Jack who is who is now 5 but has been changing shape for the last two years. This was his first saddle when I started him and he flows in it. My previous horse Jasmine also loved it and she always moved so freely in it compared to any other saddle. It was like she had a fifth gait like an Islandic pony when she wore it. It was if she was saying, now I can move. Thank you.

    We bought the Nevada saddle for our big roly poly cob who never found a saddle that could stay in place without slipping.This saddle was a big success and so comfortable, we love it. However, in the meantime, my young Dutch Warmblood was being trained with a traditional saddle, lovely saddle, but saddler has been out 3 times as she changes shape in the 6 months of her ridden work.She was a quick learner, obliging but 'lazy'.After, having wormcounts, blood tests, physio..the laziness continued.On a whim, popped the nevada saddle on her...could not believe my eyes !This horse was totally different -she floated ! No leaning on the bit, no sluggishness, no hollowing ! She moved with a lightness and freedom we'd never seen before, effortlessly collected, moving like a ballerina ! I'm really impressed, and think our horses are too.

    Just to let you know that both my Fell pony and I are delighted with the Barefoot Nevada. Great saddle. I had tried one before but found it too wide for my little legs and hips. However having the Heather Moffett hipsaver on it has made such a difference - the hipsaver does exactly what it says on the tin! I feel so secure in this saddle, it feels almost impossible to fall off. In fact, if anything, I have trouble dismounting from it - getting out of it is quite a feat! But that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Now that I am middle aged, falling off is not to be recommended, so I'm sure this saddle will help me keep all my bones intact. When trialling it yesterday, we were riding through the woods and I wasn't watching where I was going properly. My pony went underneath a low branch, I caught my head on the branch and was pulled backwards in the saddle. The branch snapped forward again over my hat, and in surprise my pony leapt forward over a muddy puddle, slipped, leapt again, bucked and started to take off down the pathway having been thoroughly startled. In an ordinary saddle I would have been deposited into that puddle of mud. In this saddle, I stayed completely upright, barely moved at all, and had control of my pony again within a couple of strides. My heart didn't even skip a beat, I felt so secure. The saddle stayed put and so did I!

    I received my Barefoot Nevada saddle last Friday 30th March, I was that excited I could'nt wait to try it.I couldn't believe the difference, it was so comfortable, but whats really good is it appeared to be a lot more comfortable for my horse, he appeared to be moving more freely ,wanted to go forward.My horse & I are looking forward to having a lot more fun now as I have found a saddle that is comfortable for the both of us.

    I've owned my Irish TBx Finn for nearly two years. He's 8 but has the training of a four year old which means he's forever tense and stressed about people gettin on board of even lunging him. I used to have a GP Kieffer which at only 5ft tall I had trouble carrying or lifting to get it on him. Finn would never stand still to be tacked up but would race round his stable or at least flinch and stamp when the saddle was put on. I decided I'd had enough of this and clearly so had he. Desperate for info I found this web address in my BHS monthly magazine and logged on. I was amazed at how comfortable the saddles looked. I've always had the intention to train Finn to western as it makes much more sense to me than traditional ways. As he's got very high withers, Deep, wide shoulders and a flat wide back I opted for the Nevada. Also it's more secure dressage girth is needed on Finn considering his greeness. The Nevada arrived in ony two days and was so light to carry. I put the saddle pad on and was able to leave Finn standing in just that whilst putting everything else together. He stands in his stable and falls asleep he's so comfortable and relaxed in it. His movement now is so smooth and unhindered it's amazing. He's much less spooky and willing to lisyen rather then going straight to flight response. I had no idea simply removing a tree could make so much difference. I'll nere have anything but a treeless saddle for any horse I may have in the future. Finn and I may even get a London model as now possibility with his training is endless. I haven't ridden in my Nevada yet as he's still a bit green for me, but I know I'd feel secure if I get up just to walk around in it. I keep it at home on a saddle horse and confess to sitting on it to watch TV, it's just that comfortable! I also have the Half Bosal which he's fascinated by and again makes him listen because the signals are so clear he know's what he's meant to be doing. The service of Horse and Harmony is the best I've come accross. Thank you to the owner Katja who's been very sympathetic and endlessly helpful.

    I bought my Barefoot Nevada just before Christmas - Christmas prsent to myself and Lucy, my horse. It is wonderful, after trying many saddles I eventually bought a synthetic one as it was the only one that seemed to fit my rather round, flat backed mare with no withers, it was awful, slipping constantly, Lucy fidgeted and got quite 'stroppy' when I put it on, then I heard of Barefoot and decided it was what we needed. How right I was, no more fidgeting when I put it on from Lucy, comfort for both of us when riding and no more slipping, riding is so much more pleasureable. I would never go back to an ordinary saddle, this is so good, worth every penny. Thanks to Barefoot for such an excellent item.

    Bought my Barefoot Nevada in May, black has faded to brown/grey, but wouldn't change it for the world! My young Spanish Mustang rides like a dream with the saddle on, and I feel comfotable and safe! Definitely recommend! I am about to buy another one for my other horses.

    I bought my Nevada treeless and saddle pad about 6 weeks ago. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made for my horse...she loves it!! You would be forgiven for thinking that your sitting in an armchair, this saddle is the comfiest thing I've ever ridden in. I can fully understand now why cowboys dont wear hard these saddles your not going anywhere...the security you feel is second to none! My horse is free to move at last. Thank you Katja for your super products and your customer service!! Kind regards Kim Douglas (Dublin)

    purchased my Barefoot Nevada in July 2004, I'm delighted with it. I have a wide Arab, similar in shape to an AQH, always having problems with saddles because he changes shape so much. Within a couple of weeks of riding him in this saddle I had my free striding horse back again, just like he was as a yougster under saddle for the first time. Janet
