Barefoot’s “Lazy Mountain” is a sheepskin saddle that is very-very comfortable for horse and rider. It was developed after listening to rider’s feedback, who wanted a sheepskin saddle that would not cause problems for the horse’s back but one that also offered the comfort of a genuine sheepskin saddle.
The structures of “Lazy Mountain” correspond to our proven Barefoot saddles: The saddle offers the same protection for the horse and the same flexibility. The integrated VPS system protects the horse’s back from pressure points and saddle adapts to the horse’s movement to allow muscle development instead of bruising of the muscles. It is therefore possible to use this saddle just as normal with leathers or fenders without any restrictions.
For all riders who want to feel safe in the saddle without feeling restricted! The ‘Lazy Mountain’ offers even more comfort for the rider: The seat is super soft with the large incorporated foam padding ensuring such a secure, embedded seat for the rider that he will not want to get off. The saddle offers more than support, it ‘surrounds’ the rider softly and securely – a fantastic feeling!
A soft, anatomically shaped cushion is secured (velcro) under the genuine sheepskin seat. This makes the seat even more comfortable and easier on the hips as it gives the saddle more of a twist ensuring the rider does not sit too wide.
The underside is made of a thick fleece. The saddle has 4 D-rings. The fork insert (comes with wide insert) can be exchanged. High-quality conchas with leather strings for decoration and to attach the sheepskin seat to the saddle base.
We have a specially devised rigging system on this saddle: Two girth straps run through and over padding made of soft leather to avoid coat irritation or even worse pressure points on the sensitive belly. Dressage girth is required.
