I just wanted better protection for my horses back and this definitely does the job! I have had it for a over a year and it has held up nicely.

I have a TN Walker who is older and has high withers. I can't seem to find a way to keep his saddle from slipping back. Would this help? I use a western saddle on him
Cindy S on May 2, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not sure if i'm the best one to answer...we used it as a riser so that the rear part of the saddle on our quarter horse fit better-- it wasn't really a wither issue. I do think that it is somewhat "sticky" so if the slippage is minimal, then it might help. But overall, your best answer is probably to get someone who's really good with saddle fitting to see what is going on.

My horse is 25 years old and has always had very high withers, now his back is swayed too. What pad would best suit him? We ride mostly english/hunt seat. He is also an Arabian so his back is naturally a little shorter.
A shopper on Feb 16, 2015
Best Answer: It's really not about the pad. The best pad in the world will not compensate for an ill fitting saddle. My advice would be to have a qualified (and independent, as opposed to a rep for a specific brand of saddle) saddle fitter come and assess your tack. Badly fitted saddles can cause pain, behavioral issues and in some cases long term damage. Lift back (or other type) pads may change the center of balance for the rider but they will NOT correct a fundamental saddle fit problem; in fact, while they may seem to "cure" one problem they could cause another, perhaps worse one. So, find a qualified fitter. My horse is hard to fit and the saddle fitter I use was well worth the $150.00 consultation!

How long is this pad?
Betty S on May 3, 2014
Best Answer: Well it is highly contoured, so I will answer by saying first that it fits perfectly under my 18" long saddle (pommel to cantle) with a bit on each end to spare, just like I wanted.
The "actual length" is about 22"

I have a horse that just got acupuncture. He seems to be sensitive on the left side more toward the back hip area. The vet suggested that the saddle could be the problem. I would agree due to the old out dated equipment that the mounted patrol uses. I am going to be purchasing my own personal tack in the next couple of weeks. Would this pad give comfort toward the back part of the saddle?
Tonja W on Jan 12, 2014
Best Answer: It might. Or the plain one (no added rise)one might work better, as this one is to raise the back end of the saddle, which might end up pinching his withers in front by pushing the front end down. You may need to have a saddle fitted to him if he is that uncomfortable - not necessarily a custom, but one with a tree that works for him. Try to find a certified saddle fitter in your area, that's how I ended yup buying this pad and it helped.
