I have just ordered my second bareback pad, so my friend can ride in one as well as me on our hacks, schooling and jumping. I love my bareback pad so much I never ride in my saddle anymore, it's so comfortable for both horse and rider. I ride all my horses in it, and they work so nicely and there movement is so much better than in a saddle. I would recommend it to everyone.

I used to prefer riding bareback only because all the other saddles (treeless, western, dressage) felt like sitting on a chair without feeling the movement of the horse plus I could not sit properly in a saddle. This bareback pad is the best invention ever and the feeling is so close to being bareback but knowing that the horse must feel more comfortable too makes the riding experience much nicer.
I also use stirrups (mostly just hacking out) and the horse I take care of has never had back problems. he also gets acupuncture treatment regularly and after this saddle he has been much better and more relaxed than before.
I don't even own a horse but I also bought this saddle for myself and use it on any horse I ride if I'm permitted to use it lol

I purchased this saddle for my young arab who I couldn't get a saddle to fit, I tried it on my older horse first and was amazed at how different and free moving she felt....the young arab also loved it!! Can't recommend enough, what a fantastic creation...I have also jumped in this pad....my mare didn't touch a single jump, again definitely free-r in front. Also super comfy :-)

I bought this bareback pad for the kids, which they love and so does Freddie the pony. I think it has given both child and pony confidence and a closer bond. Riding is really fun with this bareback pad. I was also pleased to discover that this bareback pad size is ok for me too. I am size 12 and using it on my 15.3hh cob and find it very comfortable. I just needed to buy a longer girth.

I am teaching my 4 year old daughter to ride and have recently purchased this sheepskin saddle. This saddle instantly icreased her confidence, she loves sitting on it and looks much more secure (with the pony and not perched on top). The padded rolls and cantle help keep her in place and she says its "less bouncy" than the leather saddle. I think this is a great saddle for children.

In the last 3 years we have been attacked by a dog which left Freddie a fearful terrified boy, but I have nursed him through, then last year when getting a leg on, he took off with me not quite ready, which ended up with me coming out the side door. I bounced off my neck (apparently) and was in A&E trauma for a while, my confidence has taken a bash and after all the checks it turned out the treeless saddle had caused a sore back. Saddle fitter said that as he is a wide shoulder, short back, high bummed Sec D no saddle would fit him and she recommended this saddle pad. What a life changing experience, even the physio has been amazed by the transformation in him and me, we are now riding at least 3 times a week now saddle pad is fantastic as I can feel every twitch in him, even the tail swishing has stopped, this has given me back the horse I had 3 years ago before all our traumas. The help I got from the team was great and I would love to send you all some pictures of us, thank you so much horsedream UK for giving me back my own horse dream again xx
