Original Style and the Sport Style  Please look over the images above. The Sport style (synthetic) has a black grippy material on the entire seat area and one color choice for the lower color location. The sport style is built the same and has the same seat padding as the original style. It just does not have the accent color and the wear leathers as the original style has. If you order a sport style in leather it is best to use a suede leather for the seat or request a suede leather grippy patch for the seat panel.

 

The Trailmaster Bareback Pad regular size (original and sport style) is 19.5" long with a 16" drop.

 

The Trailmaster Petite is 16.5" long with a 13" drop. This works for a child or a very small adult.

 

-English rigging- We use 1 inch extra thick biothane with a mat finish for our billets. They are sewn into the pad using a reinforced wide girth support system. Only those who need a more forward girth placement will benifit from using the 3 D-ring option. This is a $30 upgrade. The price will be reflected after you've made all of your selections.

 

-Western rigging consist of a 2"-2 1/2" D ring to add your own latigo straps to. Some people find that using the western D rings are not as comfortable for their horse and if you use a thick latigo strap you may find the knot under your leg irritating. If you want western rigging you may want to use a saddle pad under it and definitely use the more thin latigo straps. 

 

The bareback pad- The base is wool/polyester blend felt. There is additional padding under the seat panel which is foam and polyester plus a layer of very tough 1/8" thick material that helps distribute weight and protect your horse from sharp seat bones. There is 1 inch of padding and materials between your butt and the horse when this bareback pad is used alone.  You may choose to use a liner or saddle pad under your bareback pad to help keep your pad clean and add some extra cushion if you want that. The felt has natural wool in it so there may be dried vegetable matter that the sheep had in his wool that you will want to check for if you are not using a liner. Just rub your hand back and forth over the felt and the edges of the felt to check it for smoothness before riding.

 

NOTE: If you feel like your hips are spread too far apart when riding bareback on your horse please contact me before placing an order. It is possible to make your bareback pad with less padding under your thighs to give some relief. Also, the shearling seat cover with hip saver pad and cantle wedge may help some. Some riders cannot get enough hip relief without using a saddle with a narrow twist. I cannot promise miracles but I am doing my best. 

 

Grippy Seat- If you order a leather for the seat panel (placement #1) that is not grippy, such as a top grain or full grain leather, you will want to request a grippy patch on your seat, such as suede leather (make sure to note ""your color choice" suede leather grippy patch on seat" or our rubber coated grippy fabric- which only comes in black. ALL of our synthetic seat panels come with the rubber coated grippy patch on the seat.

 

IMPORTANT- REFER TO THE IMAGE ABOVE FOR COLOR LOCATIONS AND NOTE THEM CLEARLY IN THE "NOTES" OPTION BEFORE CHECKING OUT.
