SKU N/A Categories ,


Innovative dressage or eventing saddle made of soft leather with freely positionable safety stirrup bar suspension and flexible V girthing.
The Merlyn model is ideal for small horses or smaller riders due to the extra short saddle flap, but of course also for large horses.

Ultra-lightweight saddle with the proven VPS system. The narrow designed seat and the extra short mono saddle flap allow a very good contact of the rider’s leg to the pony or horse.

The seat is removable – this not only gives the saddle the desired flexibility and adaptability on the horse’s back, but also allows the open stirrup leathers to be adjusted exactly to the rider. The open stirrup attachment is velcroed between the seat and the saddle base and can be easily varied.
The seat with a non-slip seat surface is anatomically shaped, the extra soft knee roll stabilizes the rider’s leg in the saddle and gives framing support.

The girth is flexible and V-shaped. This saddle, like all Barefoot saddles, may be saddled a little further forward, because the horse’s shoulder can move freely under the Barefoot saddle at all times. The rider is thus positioned directly above the horse’s natural center of gravity, allowing the horse to balance the rider’s weight more easily. Due to the low cantle (approx. 2 cm), the saddle lies a little lower in the rear area than our other saddle models.

The interchangeable pommel ( comes in the medium size) is interchangeable as with all Barefoot saddles.

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.

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

Exchange pommel Size Middle
We normally deliver this saddle with an exchangeable pommel insert in size MEDIUM. Each Barefoot saddle is equipped with an exchangeable pommel at the front, which allows it to be adapted to the shoulder width of your horse. With the help of our measuring template you can easily determine the correct size of pommel insert for your horse (Link: Measuring template + instructions).

Velcro Stirrup Attachment open and free positioning
The open stirrup suspension with Velcro fastening is attached between the seat and the saddle substructure and can therefore be easily adjusted. 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.
