View FREEDOM RIDING ARTICLE's line of various Macon bareback pads (some without kneerolls) HERE (this is a link to F.R.A.'s PDF catalogue. Options for the Macon bareback pad can be found on pages 22-26. Other unique bareback pads can be found on pages 16-20 in the catalogue).

EKKIA in France also has a few more traditional bareback pads HERE. I do not personally endorse the use of stirrups on pads like this, but do like the concept of the Norton "Confort" pad, which is quite similar to my "Best Friends" bareback pad that I have quite enjoyed using the last 4 years or so before I found the FRA pads--and still use on occasion to this day for spontaneous jaunts around the farm!

If you would like something specific that either of these two companies offers, just fire me an email from my Contact page, and I would be happy to order it in for you! (NOTE: Both FREEDOM RIDING ARTICLES and EKKIA do not retail to the general public)
