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

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.

Barefoot Saddles FAQ
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.Exchange pommel Size Medium
We normally deliver this saddle with an exchangeable pommel insert in size MEDIUM. Each Barefoot saddle is equipped with an exchangeable pommel at the front, which allows it to be adapted to the shoulder width of your horse. With the help of our measuring template you can easily determine the correct size of pommel insert for your horseAdjustable 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. 5 cm width, suitable for wide leathers and wide fenders.Barefoot high quality leather

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
