Trailmaster Bareback Pads
Designed and Created in the USA

The Trailmaster Bareback Pad is contoured like the shape of the back of a horse, not like a saw horse. This not only helps your horse be more comfortable it also helps the pad stay in the correct position. Our bareback pads are sturdy and will hold up well for 1000 miles or more if cared for properly. We do recommend using a liner to extend the life of your bareback pad. We use stainless steel hardware unless you request otherwise. It is our goal to create a comfortable bareback pad for you and your horse to enjoy for years to come. 


Our bareback pads are perfect for the casual bareback rider, the rider with a hard to fit horse, the endurance rider who wants a minimalist treeless, form fitting saddle or the back woods/outback trail rider. If you are looking for a very thin or very plush bareback pad, the Trailmaster Bareback Pad is not right for you. Those are abundantly available on the web. I designed this bareback pad to fill a gap in the equine market and meet the needs of serious bareback riders. 

Although you do not have to use a pad or liner under your bareback pad, using one will extend the life of your bareback pad as well as give a bit more comfort for your horse. The bottom of our bareback pads are a wool blend that may have a piece of vegetable matter (weed stems or seeds) that occur naturally when using real sheep wool. You should feel your felt before every ride to be sure it is smooth with no vegetable matter if you are not using a liner of some kind.


If you would like to use stirrups with this bareback pad we do offer stirrup straps (under accessories) that are easy to install/remove when used with our billet rigging design. We strongly recommend using a quality non-slip gel pad against your horse to prevent slipping or rolling since this pad does NOT have a tree to keep it stable when more pressure is put in one stirrup over the other. Using a well fitting breast collar also assists with stability.

“Love my bareback pad! Fits my horse Mazey fabulously and doesn't pinch or slide at all unlike so many other pads. It's padded very nicely too. I would totally recommend this in a heartbeat for anyone into bareback riding, it's awesome!”
