We call this pad the Wither Maker because it’s designed to contour and cushion while maintaining support for the broad-shouldered horse.
A viscoelastic hex cell at the wither molds to the shape of the horse, reducing pressure points caused by the bars of the saddle. This allows proper alignment of the bars along the horse’s back so that the bar pressure is equalized allowing unrestricted movement of the shoulders and increased range of motion. This memory foam compresses slightly so the bars of the saddle nest to minimize saddle roll. Tacky-Too® material provides a nonslip grip while remaining soft, comfortable, and easy to clean. It won't pinch hair and is breathable for long rides.
Designed for Maximum Pressure Relief (MPR), we do not recommend this pad for horses who have a defined wither.
