Barefoot Madrid Treeless Saddle
The Barefoot Madrid Treeless Saddle is a beautiful classical Spanish Baroque saddle with working equitation in mind. The deeper suede seat and higher cantle give you a secure, close contact seat. A perfect saddle for gaited horses. Peruvians, Pasos, Andalusians and Mustangs will look gorgeous on the trail or in the arena in this luxurious saddle.
The shortest of all the Barefoot saddles, it has a deep secure seat with a 4.5" cantle. Enjoy a noticeable close ride that lets you feel the muscles and movement of the horse's back and therefore help you build the basis of more precise riding.
There is no saddle pressure to stop your horse from moving freely. The horse's horse's back also remains free of pressure so your horse can learn free of tension and build topline without any restriction by the saddle. Blood supply to muscles remains intact and muscles can therefore build up.
The Madrid saddle has a wide standard pommel insert to provide wither clearance. The square skirt design will help stabilize the saddle on round backs. The English style billets are in an adjustable Y shape and the second billet slides to adjust the pressure and weight of the saddle. Choose any style dressage girth to go with it.
Riding a gaited horse in a Barefoot treeless saddle will allow the horse to move freely, without restricting the shoulder, which is so important for gaited horses.
The Barefoot Madrid has D rings for a breastplate, a rectangular ring for a crupper and two extra rings on either side of the cantle to attach saddle bags, water bottles and more.
Flexible V-Rigging. Saddle also suits horse's with difficult girth positions. Saddle lies a little further forward than a conventional saddle and positions the rider at the horse's center of gravity. It is therefore easier for your horse to balance the weight of the rider.
The stirrup attachment can be positioned between seat and saddle as needed and can easily adjust to your seat and size.
