This is Trailmaster XL Bareback Pad. Merino wool fleece with 3/8" wool blend felt inside, top fabric in your choice of color and our black grippy seat (rubber coated fabric or suede leather). This style allows you to feel even more connected with your horse while still providing enough padding between your bum and your horse to maintain comfort while out roaming the countryside on long trail rides. If you are looking for a bit more padding under your seat take a look at our original Trailmaster Bareback Pad which has an additional 1/2" padding inside of the seat panel and an optional fitted merino wool liner.
If you choose a D ring option we install 8 of your choice, in similar locations as the original Trailmaster Bareback Pad
One size fits most. Drop: 18" from the center at the base of the wither relief (along the girthline) to the first hole in the top of the billet and 26-27" to the bottom hole. From the front edge at the center line to the rear edge is 25". The tail is approximately 20" wide from one side to the other.
To view our colors please visit the "Colors" page. We offer two types of fabric- Sunbrella marine grade canvas which is breathable and water resistant or our new Naugahyde Universal which is waterproof and super easy to clean.
If your horse has extra high withers just sit on the bareback pad and pull the wither relief to manipulate the fit. It is felt and will mold and shape fairly easily. I did this and shaped it to fit my extra high withered mare just fine.
You can use our stirrup straps with this bareback pad if you wish to. See the stirrup strap product page for information. This pad will roll if you put more pressure in one stirrup over the other.
