This comfortably padded seat cushion that we call the “Hip Saver” was developed to give riders a narrower sitting position and it fits all our Barefoot saddles. Our saddles adapt themselves to the shape of your horse’s back. On the one hand, this allows the rider to feel the horse’s body contours and movement more clearly, but on the other hand, especially with broader horses, the rider will have a wider seat.
The “Hip Saver” is designed to counteract this and give smaller, more slender riders a narrower, more comfortable position in the saddle. It can be fixed to the saddle using velcro fasteners between the seat and the stirrup attachment.
It comes in two sizes. Size 1 is 34 cm long and 24 cm wide. Size 2 is 39 cm long and 24 cm wide.
