Barefoot’s “Wellington” is an innovative, light dressage saddle made from soft leather. It comes with our well-proven VPS system which is three-layered (i.e. thicker) for this saddle. This ensures even more protection from pressure under the stirrup attachment.
The extra-narrow seat and special, flat saddle flaps allow excellent contact between the rider’s leg and the horse. The detachable seat means the saddle is extremely flexible and adapts itself precisely to the horse’s body shape. The open stirrup attachment is fixed between the seat and the saddle’s under construction and can easily be adjusted, giving the rider an exact fit. Riders with unequal leg length can achieve an optimal position by pushing the stirrup attachment further forward or backward to suit.
The anatomically-contoured seat has a non-slip surface; the knee roll gently stabilises the rider’s leg in the correct dressage position. Additional cushioning can be fixed under the contoured saddle flaps with Velcro fastening. The saddle is fitted with a flexible V-girth.
As with all Barefoot models, this saddle can be placed further forward on the horse, thus positioning the rider directly above its centre of gravity, making it easier for the horse to balance the rider’s weight.
