Barefoot’s “Nottingham” is a wonderful treeless jumping saddle that exceptionally has a thicker, three-layered VPS system. This ensures even more protection from pressure under the stirrup attachment. Therefore this saddle is not only suitable for jumping but also for riders who are heavier in the saddle, long treks and other strains. Nevertheless, the saddle will still be flexible ensuring the horse’s comfort and not restring his movements. Muscles will build up rather than waste away!
It is made from fine, soft leather in combination with easy-to-care-for artificial leather as a base. There is a thick fleece underside and 6 D-rings. The knee pads are padded as the underlying knee blocks can be freely positioned with velcro, depending on your preferences. The pommel insert (size medium) can be exchanged as with all Barefoot saddles.
