Re: [RC] [RC] Barefoot saddle - Dawn Carrie

I use a Barefoot Cheyene on all 3 of my horses, with an Equipedic pad.  I haven't had any problem with it sliding around.  I ride with a rather loose girth (ok, some would call it a very loose girth, as sometimes there is daylight between the horse and girth by the end of the ride <G>).  I do use a breast collar, but that's more to keep the saddle in place should I come off and the horse take off, and besides, it adds more pretty color.  :)  We don't have many hills here in East Texas, but I've gone up some darn near vertical creek banks, and have also ridden in the steep Texas Hill Country and the mountains of New Mexico.  My breast collar isn't super tight, and the saddle seldom if ever relies on the breast collar to hold it in place (except up those vertical creek banks).  The two horses I ride the most have very different backs...one short and very broad, the other longer, high withers, more prominent spine.  I love this saddle...very comfy, and my horses are happy.  :)

HI,   I recently bought a Barefoot Cheyenne saddle, and tricked it out with
an Equipedic pad, which I love, and a full wool cover, which I love.  The
saddle itself is quite cushy, but it seems to move around...alot.  I have
started putting one of those little non slip squares under the Equipedic,
but am worried about heat buildup.  If I didn't use a breast plate, I think
the saddle would slide right off of my horses rump on these Vermont
hills...kidding, but it rolls and slides.  Has anyone else had these
experiences with a Barefoot, or any other treeless saddle, and what did you
do to remedy the problem?
Thank you,
