This anatomically shaped half pad made of antibacterial synthetic suede is filled with memory foam. This half pad with front riser allows for a stable saddle position for horses with low or mutton withers. The front riser slightly lifts the saddle away from the withers in order to help prevent wither problems. The pads memory foam filling distributes the weight of saddle and rider very evenly across the horse's back. This reduces the risk of pressure on the spine and withers. Memory foam provides excellent shock-absorption. The material reacts to body heat and as result, it adapts perfectly to the contours of the horses back and prevents rubbing. The pad fits under all saddles and can be used directly on the horses back or between saddle and saddle pad. Washable at 30°C.
