Healthy back due to our VPS System

VPS stands for vertebrae protecting system. It consists of a combination of different materials which enable the rider’s weight to be distributed evenly over the largest possible saddle area .Even at a standing trot, the rider's weight is distributed over the entire saddle surface there is therefore no weight restriction for riders. For more information see: Barefoot flyer VPS-System.

Adjustable Velcro stirrup suspension

The adjustable Velcro stirrup suspension is attached between the seat and the saddle substructure and is therefore easy to adjust. This means that the saddle can easily be adapted to riders with different leg lengths simply by moving the stirrup suspension either backwards or forwards.

Narrow Stirrup-Attachment

Narrow stirrup attachment approx. 2.5 cm width, suitable for all English stirrup leathers and narrow fenders.

Flexible V-Girthing - even works for critical horse girth areas Sattel-Gurtung

The movable V-strap is often used when a horse has girthing problems. It gives the elbow plenty of room to move and, because the two strands can move independently of one another, the pressure from the girth is distributed more evenly.


This saddle has knee rolls with our integrated AirPumpSystem: Circulating air in the knee roll makes the knee roll pad more flexible, so the knee roll adapts individually to the rider's leg.

Super Sattel

Seit nun fast zwei Jahren reite ich meinen recht großen Isländer mit dem Cherokee Classic. Wir haben uns damals für ein Barefoot Modell (auf Anraten des Reitlehrers) entscheiden, da sich das Pferd unter keinem der diversen zur Verfügung stehenden Baumsättel des Reitstalls wohlzufühlen schien. Das war mit dem Barefoot sofort anders: Bereits nach dem ersten Anziehen gab es kein Ausweichbewegungen mehr und auch ich (damals erst seit etwas über 6 Monaten im Sattel) fand es von Beginn an angenehm, so deutlich zu spüren, was das Pferd unter mir tut und wie es sich dabei fühlt. Inzwischen haben wir gut 3.000 Gelände-km mit dem Barefoot hinter uns und ich gebe ihn ganz sicher nicht wieder her.

Auch auf langen Ritten ist nicht erkennbar, dass meine reitfertig doch deutlich über 80kg den Dicken irgendwie stören.

Nicht so ganz sicher bin ich mir dagegen bei den Sattelpads: Am liebsten reite ich den Sattel eigentlich ganz ohne Unterlage, hier ist das Barefoot-Reitgefühl einfach am deutlichsten, Pferd und ich verstehen uns so klar am besten. Die Schafpelzunterseite braucht dann Pflege. Mit dem SpezialPad kann ich leben, das PhysioPad entkoppelt mich aber zu sehr vom Geschehen...
