Saddle pad, or grupera, for pillion rider, made from traditional heavy striped cotton. The grupera fits behind most Spanish saddles and is traditionally used for carrying a female passenger behind the rider who would be mounted on a Vaquera, Espanola, mixta or Alta Escuela saddle. It is fitted with straps to attach to the rear of the saddle. A standard crupper (the crupper is not supplied with the grupera) is used, passed through a panel in the pad, for extra security. Heavy cotton drill cover with padding.
