Barefoot saddles are hand made. This makes every saddle unique. The measurements are therefore just reference points and can vary slightly.
Barrydale 1 50 34 55 36-40 (8-12) 44-48 (28-32) Barrydale 2 55 39 57 42-46 (14-18) 50-54 (34-38)
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.Flexible V-Girthing - even works for critical horse girth areas
The movable V-strap is often used when a horse has girthing problems. It gives the elbow plenty of room to move and, because the two strands can move independently of one another, the pressure from the girth is distributed more evenly.Narrow Stirrup-Attachment
Narrow stirrup attachment approx. 2.5 cm width, suitable for all English stirrup leathers and narrow fenders.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.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 horse.Barefoot high quality leather

Fantastic saddle, received my barrydale last week & it has to be the comfiest saddle I've ever sat in. Perfect support for my creaky knees & ive had no back ache whatsoever since using it. Fits my welsh cob perfectly & he's so much happier with a treeless, more forward, less spooky obviously more comfortable. I can't recommend this saddle enough - it is awesome especially on long hacks - don't think about it, just get one, you'll be transformed. Thank you horse and harmony for great customer service.
