Trial Pad

There is 1 bareback pad available to trial (Signor Small). The trial includes all pads, leathers & stirrups. The bareback pad can be supplied with long or short billets to use with your current girth. You can select English, Western or no accessories with the pad.

Please note that bareback pads are not intended to be used with stirrups where the rider is weight-bearing in them. They are simply there for reassurance and a gentle balance aid to help the rider transition to bareback riding. We do not recommend you post in trot, jump or enter ‘light seat’ while using the bareback pad with stirrups.

 

Why Trial?

Booking a trial is the easiest and safest way to make sure the pad you are wanting to order suits you. Photos cannot compare to an in-person experience and we are on hand to help you every step of the way.

We recommend you first book an online consultation so we can support you to find the best pad or saddle to trial for you and your horse(s). This service includes a fitting guide, 2 measuring guides, full fitting support plus consultations before and during your trial to ensure you get the most from the experience. Book your treeless consultation at www.treeless-saddles.com

 

What’s Included?

  • Full 14 days to trial an EDIX bareback pad.
  • Includes hire of the related fit kits including inserts, leathers, stirrups and any other required accessories.
  • Postage with tracking and insurance to you (you are responsible for return postage costs).

 

How Much is the Trial?

The trial cost is €30 admin fee plus carriage & insurance. We request the security deposit for the trial should the pad be damaged, lost or stolen. Full terms are covered in our trial agreement, which must be agreed to book the trial.

Where you have selected a professional fitting service, no admin fee is charged as this is covered in the fitting.

Presently we use AnPost and DPD services if you wish to check their current prices yourself. Postage costs are deducted from the deposit once the pad is returned and checked over.

 

How Trials Work

  1. Reserve your pad for trial by selecting from the options above, we will post out within 3-5 working days where available.
  2. Receive the pad to try for 14 days, your trial starts from the day you sign for receipt of the pad.
  3. Enjoy a full virtual fitting experience provided you have booked a consultation (a printed guide accompanies all pads).
  4. Return the pad with the shipping labels you receive via email.

Once we receive the pad we will offer to return the deposit minus the carriage and any damages/cleaning (if any!) If you wish to order a new pad, just pay the difference and enjoy free shipping of your new pad within the UK & most of Europe. We can also help you with custom orders and put together a unique package deal for you, depending on your requirements.
