Unlike most other Bareback Pads the Lightrider Best Bareback Pad is designed without girth strap pressure over the wither area.
The real suede outer is stylish and offers excellent rider stickability.
LightRider Bareback pads come in high quality Real Suede with a felt lining and nylon lined leather girth points.
The Real Suede pile is stylish and offers excellent rider 'stickability'.
These pads are contoured for horse and rider comfort.
The girth strap is sewn in a unique way so that it does not encompass the whole wither. This eliminates any pressure points normally associated with other bareback pads that have an over-sewn girth strap.
We recommend that a saddle pad is used underneath the Bareback Pad to keep the felt lining clean. A treeless saddle pad may be required for horses with a very under muscled back and high wither.
Designed by Cynthia Cooper, these bareback pads are hand made by a Tasmanian Saddler using top quality materials.
The new design features are:
Shaped back seam is curved for a higher wither.
Will not tighten directly onto the backbone due to stitched down webbing either side of the spine and relief in the webbing over the spine.
English or western girthing system (girth not included) - english billets are made from Beta biothane and western cinch from nylon (seat belt) webbing to minimise bulk under your leg.
D rings front and back to attach your saddle pad, breastplate, coat, lead rope, water bottle etc.
Made from quality 16mm thick felt covered with black or brown quality suede.
