Best Friend Bareback Pad


The Best Friend Bareback pad is an amazing product. What I like about it is the fact that it does not have to be girthed up tightly and it does not move at all on the horse. For the rider; the Best Friend Bareback Pad improves comfort, provides a barrier against dirt and grease, as well as an easy grab handle for confidence.

For the horse; the Best Friend Bareback Pad is light and airy improving back comfort with additional wither protection.

The Best Friend Bareback Pad is ideal for any horse including young horses being introduced to the saddle, horses recovering from injury and those horses whose backs are not shaped for traditional saddle fitting.

The Best Friend Bareback Pad is available in a range of colours and sizes and comes complete with a matching girth for ultimate fit, grip and comfort.
