Available in different shapes and colors for all our Barefoot saddle models. Developed for the demands during long rides and for heavier riders or horses with protruding spinous processes. All physio pads are shaped to accomodate the horse’s spine and offer ideal pressure absorption and distribution.
This system offers addtional clearance and lift over the spinous processes of the thoracic vertebrae and consists of 2 components which are pressure absorbing and are connected securely with velcro.
a) Lower part: anatomically cut made of quilted cotton, thinned under the upper thigh for a close leg contact, pressure absorbing foam inserts can be removed through an easy velcro opening. 2/3 gripping sympanova underside will stabilize the saddle even on very round horses – the rear 1/3 is fleece underside to protect this sensitive area. The fleece glides over the horses coat and therefore eliminates potential rubbing under the cantle.
b) top layer: Quilted cotton upper fabric with felt underside, poly fleece inside and foam layer on top (will keep the saddle in place and supplies additional pressure absorption). Velcro straps attach to the saddles D-rings. Machine washable at 30 degrees. 1 pair of 15 mm foam inserts are included with this saddle pad.
