This Barefoot Barrydale Physio Saddle Pad is designed to fit the the Barefoot Barrydale saddle. It is an insert style pad, ideal for adjusting to your horses needs with various inserts types and thicknesses or to add shims to support your horses special needs.  Comes with two pairs of inserts.  This pad is anatomically designed to fit your horses topline and to distribute rider weight and and absorb shock.  The contour shape  avoids compression in the sensitive wither and spine area.   In addition there is no fleece lining along the spinal channel to provide additional protection and clearance over the horses spine. 
The 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 ideal pressure absorption and distribution.  The Barefoot Physio Pad is anatomically contoured to the horse's topline and cut to the style of saddle.
The Physio Pad system offers additional clearance and lift over the spinous processes of the thoracic vertebrae and consists of 2 components which are pressure absorbing and are connected securely with Velcro.  Comes with 2 pairs of inserts.
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 (2 pairs of inserts included with pad) can be removed through an easy Velcro opening. The front 2/3rds of the underside is made with 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.
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.
