Improved Bareback & Colt Starting Pad

Product Description
Improved Horse Education Company design features:
  • Slimmer Handle for More Comfort in Smaller Hands
  • Split Harness Leather Reinforcement - Three Piece Design broadcasts pull from the cinch more generally over the horse's back as a saddle would, unlike a one piece design that will give a pull feeling all in one concentrated spot.

This pad is a great way to get the young horse used to the feeling of being cinched up and carrying something on his back without the full weight or intricacy of a saddle. It is an essential tool in the pre-ride training of many horsemanship programs, as well as a great aid for developing an independent seat in the rider.

Can also be used for bareback riding, you will find its suede shell will help give your seat more grip and should you need an extra bit of assurance, you'll have the pad's leather handle at your disposal in a heartbeat - a great way to rediscover the fun of bareback riding with more security and stability.

Features a suede leather surface on the top of the pad and a wool felt bottom that will keep your horse comfortable. Comes with attached latigo straps. Cinch not included. Made of the finest quality materials and designed to be a tool that lasts you many years.

Available in Black (in stock) and Saddle Tan or Dark Brown.

"Wearing a bareback pad is one of the essential skills I expect my young horses to have. Its something that gets them ready for the saddle without the rigidity of a saddle, so it makes it a nice introduction to wearing something that has the tightness of the cinch involved but still has a bit of an elastic feel." ~Kalley Krickeberg, Horse Education Company Ambassador
