Comfortable for horse and rider!
The Barefoot 'Soft Walk' was developed after listening to rider's feedback who wanted a low cost sheepskin saddle that would not cause problems for the horse's back but one that also offered the comfort of a genuine sheepskin saddle.
The structure of the 'Soft Walk' correspinds to the proven Barefoot saddles : The saddle offers the same protection to the horse and the same flexibility. The integrated VPS system protects the horse's back from pressure points and saddle adapts to the horse's movement to allow muscle development instead of bruising of the muscles. It is therefore possibe to use this saddle just as normal with stirrups without any restrictions.
For all riders that want to feel safe in the saddle without feeling restricted!
The 'Soft Walk' offers even more comfort for the rider: the seat is super soft with the large integrated foam padding ensuring such a secure, embedded seat for the rider that he will not want to get off. The saddle offers more than support, it surrounds the rider softly and securely - a fantastic feeling!
A soft anatomically shaped cushion is secured (velcro) under the genuine sheepskin seat. This makes the seat even more comfortable and easier on the hips as it gives as it gives the saddle more of a twist ensuring the the rider does not sit too wide.
The underside is made of thick fleece. The saddle has 4 D-rings.
The pommel insert (comes with a medium insert) Can be exchanged with different width inserts (available for purchase separately). High quality conchas with strings for decoration and to attach the sheepskin seat to the saddle base.

Balancing saddles through the saddle pad
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. 52 cm B = approx. 38 cm C = approx 50cm
Size 2 : recommended for clothes size :
Ladies 14-18 Gents : 34-38
A = approx. 57 cm B = approx. 42 cm C = approx. 51cm
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.
