Barefoot’s riding pad for kids is great for both your child and the pony. Most bareback pads or riding cushions are rather bad for the horse and cause discomfort rather than comfort, because the girth runs directly across the back and distributes all pressure onto one, maybe two spinous processes.
Our riding pads have V-girthing which distributes the pressure along the entire pad. We deliberately decided against stirrup attachments as standing in stirrups would lead to pressure points.
This riding pad is padded with high density foam in alternating thickness and is very stable on the horse’s back thanks to the artificial rubber underside. The upper side is made from microfiber which ensures good grip for the rider even at speed.The girthing is stabilised by patches, which have real sheep wool on the underside so the girthing does not irritate the coat along the horse’s side. We recommend the use in combination with the Barefoot sheepskin girth.
