Why our bareback saddle offers you
much more than a traditional bareback pad

 

1. First and foremost, our unique double-billet rigging  dramatically reduces the dangerous slipping that is a problem with so many bareback pads.  It can be used with any English-style girth.

The billets are sewn securely through tough nylon web straps to the split cowhide seat, providing a much larger girth attachment area than a single strap.  Two-ply laminated for toughness and resilience, these billets will last for years if they are kept clean and oiled.

Precisely spaced to work with any two-buckle girth, the billets allow the rider to choose the best girth for the horse.  Increased attachment area and a high-quality girth make the saddle so secure that slipping is practically eliminated.

      

 

 

2. Heavy-duty 2-inch D-rings are sewn into the web straps on the sides of the saddle for optional stirrup attachment.  Of course we recommend the use of safety or breakaway stirrups, whether English or Western.

Though stirrups are not recommended for use with most bareback pads, many of our friends use them with their Little Joe saddles.  Some even use their saddles for jumping or dressage!

3. The padding in our saddle will not shift, pack down, or deteriorate (see cutaway diagram at right.)  Under the split cowhide seat are two layers of extra-thick Berber cloth--springy, resilient and absorbent.  They are separated by a one-inch piece of recycled poly foam that resists rot and compression and holds its shape through years of wear.

The bottom side of the saddle, next to the horse, is a third layer of Berber cloth.  This whole construction is quilted to prevent it from shifting or pulling apart under pressure.  The result is a pad that is extremely tough, resilient, long-lasting and comfortable for both horse and rider--so much so that they have been used successfully on 25-mile endurance rides.

Available in 12 beautiful colors!

4. The seat of the LittleJoe bareback pad is sturdy, top quality split cowhide, available in a number of attractive colors.  The suede surface provides excellent traction, making the rider feel more secure and relaxed.  The grab strap is mostly for mounting, but is also handy if you lose your balance, or for learning to sit the trot!
 

All this and a blanket, too!

SAFETY INFORMATION

While the LittleJoe bareback saddle is exceptionally comfortable and secure, NO BAREBACK PAD IS EVER AS SECURE AS A TREED SADDLE AND EVEN THE MOST SECURE BAREBACK SADDLE CAN SLIP.  PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:
                                1. Fasten the girth tightly and check it frequently while riding.
                                2. Always use safety stirrups, and use extra care mounting and dismounting.
                                3. If the pad slips, dismount immediately to adjust it and tighten the girth.
