Barefoot Western Physio Saddle Pad System
Barefoot Physio Saddle Pad System has been developed for the
demands of long rides, heavier riders, round horses on which every
saddle tends to slip, and/or horses with protruding spinous processes.
All Physio pads are shaped to accommodate the horse's spine and offer
pressure absorption and distribution. This saddle pad is designed for the Barefoot Arizona and Arizona Nut Western Saddles, but can be used with other western and endurance style saddles.
The Physio Pad system offers additional clearance and
lift over the spinous processes of the thoracic vertebrae and consists
of 2 components which absorb pressure, and connect securely
Lower part: This pad is anatomically cut, made of quilted cotton
and is thinner under the upper thigh for a close leg contact. Pressure
absorbing foam inserts (included with pad) can be removed through an
easy Velcro opening. The front 2/3rds of the underside is made with non-slip sympanova that will grip and stabilize the saddle even on very round
horses. The rear 1/3 is sheepskin to protect this sensitive area. The
sheepskin glides over the horses coat eliminating potential rubbing
under the cantle.
Designed to fit both size 1 and 2 Barefoot Western Treeless Saddles. Click Here for more information on shimming your saddle through the pad!
Upper part: The top layer is made of a quilted cotton fabric
with a felt underside, poly fleece inside and a foam layer on top to
help keep the saddle in place and supply additional pressure absorption.
Velcro straps along the topline attach to your saddles d-rings.
