The popular Barfoot 'Cheyenne' GP model made from 'Drytex', a water-repellent textile leather with a slightly grained surface. The material is very light and can be cleaned with just a wet sponge!
The Barefoot 'Cheyenne Drytex' is particular popular for riders who wish to sit freely as the saddle moulds to the shape of the horse whilst allowing the rider's legs to be placed freely without being held in position by knee rolls.

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 0 : recommended for clothes sizes:
A = approx. 48 cm B + approx. 32cm C = approx. 45cm
Size 1: recommended for clothes sizes :
Ladies 10-12 Gents 28-32
A = approx. 52 cm B = approx. 36 cm C = approx 50cm
Size 2 : recommended for clothes size :
Ladies 14-18 Gents : 34-38
A = approx. 58 cm B = approx. 40 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.
