Pommel Width
Lungeing and therapeutic riding without a nutcracker effect.
Most lunging, vaulting and therapeutic riding surcingles apply  nutcracker-like pressure onto the horse's withers - either to the sides or on top of the spinous processes.
Underneath the Barefoot® surcingle the withers remain unrestricted and there is no pressure - neither onto the withers nor along the sides. The supports on both sides are padded softly and extra wide, so that muscles can develop.
The handles are anatomically shaped giving a safe hold even for small hands. The surcingle therefore becomes an ideal training aid for beginner riders and for therapeutic riding.
The handles can easily be removed and exchanged for a Barefoot insert without handles.
The correct size for the front pommel insert can be measured by using the sizing template.
 The lowest rings left and right on the surcingle are movable (only for size 1/2) and can be taken off to allow the surcingle to be girthed higher  for horses with  narrow rib cages.

The surcingle can be used with any standard dressage girth. Optional riding pad also available
