Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I measure heart girth?
    You may want to measure heart girth if you are attempting to purchase a girth/cinch prior to receiving your bareback pad/soft saddle. Place the soft tape measure or string snugly around the girth area from the base of the withers (the lowest point where the withers meet the spine) and all the way around where the girth/cinch will want to lay.
  • How do I clean my bareback pad and accessories?
    Here’s a great video about cleaning sunbrella. Wool: vacuum or brush off and if needed rinse with clean water and let air dry completely. You can shop online for a "rubber brush for pet hair" like this one. Use it on your bareback pads and accessories, upholstery, carpets, etc. Picks up hair and fur like magic. NOTE: Wool is made from sheep and sheep get weeds in their wool. Please feel your wool often to check for debris that might need to be removed. Leather: Use appropriate leather cleaner/protectant/maintenance for the type of leather you have. Suede leather should be brushed every now and then to prevent it from losing its nap.
