Trail Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Barefoot
Model: Cheyenne
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I found the Barefoot saddles while studying treeless saddles on the internet. The reviews seemed favorable, I loved the look, the price was right ... so I purchased one from Lori's Tack, an internet store out of Nashville. I purchased the Ocean's Blue which was a limited edition and is no longer available, so the price is not applicable.

Likes: I love the comfort while riding this saddle for both me and my pony. I appreciate the closeness to my horse, this saddle is almost like a very sturdy bareback pad with stirrups. I like the craftsmanship and looks of the Cheyenne for the price. I am an on again/off again rider, so sometimes I ride three times a week and sometimes I don't ride for a few months. I always dreaded getting back in the saddle if I hadn't ridden in a while, the saddle soreness was excruciating with traditional saddles. With my Barefoot saddle, I can hop in the saddle and ride for over an hour and have no saddle soreness, just a little muscle soreness from using muscles that haven't been used in a while. And the best part is, my horse doesn't seem to feel any soreness either! I read where a lot of people take the pommel insert out and stuff it with wool. I see no need to do this with me and my horse. I like the support the pommel gives the saddle while mounting whenever a mounting block isn't handy.

Dislikes: I only have one thing I would suggest they change about the Cheyenne: I would like the option to change my stirrups to a different position during a long ride. It would be nice if there was a two position setting to attach the stirrup leathers to the saddle. Like most treeless saddles, sometimes I have to tighten the girth a bit more than I like, but I found that after I grew used to the new feel of a treeless, and as I became better balanced and confident, I no longer have to make my pony's eyes bulge out every time I go for the third tightening!

Quality: I find the Barefoot Cheyenne to be very nicely constructed for the price and type of saddle it is.

Summary: My pony and I love our Barefoot Cheyenne!
