What’s more fun than going for a bareback ride? Bareback riding is a great way to have a more casual hack around your field, and it gives you an opportunity to really feel your horse’s movement underneath your seat; however, your seat bones can leave your horse’s back sore after a long ride. It can also get pretty bumpy trotting bareback. To solve these issues, many riders choose to ride in a bareback pad - a saddle-shaped, cushioned pad that simply cinches around your horse’s barrel like any saddle. These pads provide the necessary cushion and shock absorption to make bareback riding comfortable and fun. Shop The Cheshire Horse for a wide selection of bareback pads to suit your needs. 

For the closest feel to a saddle while riding bareback, we carry bareback pads with adjustable stirrups. Pads from Tough-1are affordable and fully equipped with sturdy dee-rings to attach a water bottle or saddle bags - a comfortable option for a trail ride. Want to go without stirrups? We have a large selection of bareback pads without stirrups that let you grip with your full leg.

A large number of equestrians, especially trail riders and pleasure riders, are turning to treeless saddles. Simply put, a treeless saddle does not have a tree, which is the rigid foundation on which many traditional saddles are built. Due to their unique construction, treeless saddles flex and conform to your horse’s back over the course of your ride. Many horse owners report that their horses move with larger strides and freedom of movement when they utilize these specialized English saddles.

Our inventory includes synthetic treeless saddles from Cashel Saddlery. Weighing in just over six pounds, these extremely lightweight saddles showcase a sleek construction that allows the rider to feel their horse underneath them. Treeless Cashel saddles are manufactured from a water-repellent microfiber suede which keeps the rider securely positioned no matter the weather.

Please note: Due to their unique construction, treeless saddles may not be appropriate for all equestrian disciplines. They are not recommended for high-impact activities such as jumping, reining, and roping.
