Some riders choose to forgo the saddle entirely and to ride bareback for a variety of reasons. Some horses need to be ridden bareback as a form of therapy after recovering from injury. Some riders enjoy riding bareback pads as it forms a closer bond between horse and rider, and obviously requires less necessary tack to get up and go!

Bareback riding comes with its own set of issues, however. Rider soreness is common, and if you are on longer rides on dustier trails, your riding pants or breeches can collect dust and debris as well. Bareback saddle pads are a quick and easy way to solve both problems while still getting all the added benefits of forgoing the use of the saddle. They stay secure with straps that sit around the stomach of the horse, and the pad sits along the withers similar to a traditional saddle. This makes the bareback pad a lightweight and comfortable option for you and your horse. Bareback pads also come with stirrups which helps to provide added security and balance in the saddle!
