Product Summary:

Designed to fit under your saddle and over your horse’s withers to effectively redistribute the rider’s weight along your horse’s back. Remarkable results can be seen when you move your weight away from directly pushing down on your horse’s shoulders. Leads come more easily, increased blood flow, your horse tires less quickly, etc.
 

This felt pad enhancer is made from the finest, needled, “Absorber” felt and can hold up to four times its weight in moisture, yet it dries quickly and is easy to clean with soap and water. 1” thick felt on each side and comes with nylon placement straps.

Colors may vary.

Size: 11" L x 8 1/2" W on each side connected by 1-1/2" web straps

This product serves the purpose.
Used it once, it worked okay for my horse. It would be better is the straps were adjustable in order to have better placement on the withers.

Wither pad works great.
I have a horse with high withers and I was having problems with the saddle. The wither pads really work well and keep the pressure off the withers. He is more agreeable to ride. I probably need a different saddle but until I can find the right one I will use these wither pads. The nylon placement straps are fine and can be pulled up so nothing binds across the withers. The pads lift the weight off his shoulders and he has better movement. They are well made and do not slip out of place. I use them on top of the saddle pad and under the saddle.

Great product
My thoroughbred has very high withers. These work excellent to make sure the saddle doesn't rub.

High Wither horses
Bought this for a mare that has very high withers. Makes my saddle fit much better, I thought I was going to have to buy a new saddle but this completely solved the problem. No slip, I use it while I am barrel racing with no problem. I have only had it for a couple of months but it looks brand new

Great little pad
This has been perfect my pony lost weight and her saddle didn't fit properly and this is a good temp. fix and other people in my barn use it too.

Nice quality wither pad.
I bought this for a horse with muscle atrophy behind the withers. It works really well. Fairly thick so you have to make sure you try it with different pads for the correct fit. This is not to fix a poorly fitting saddle! This is a temporary fix until a better fitting saddle is found.

Great Product, Great Price
I bought this for my high withered Thoroughbred gelding, My Australian saddle is a bit too wide in the gullet, this keeps the saddle from rubbing on the top of his withers. If you need a little bit of clearance this will really help. I tried the fleece covered one, but it was a little too thick.

Quality material but too bulky
This item is too thick for any of my horses. It is well-made, but does not lend itself to easy adjustment for different backs and needs. Straps and pads too long. Adjustable velcro straps would be a help.

LOVE THIS THING
I bought 3 of these the first time. 2 for us and one for a friend. We have almost every common breed there is, Appy, Mustang, Drafts, QH, TB, Paso, TWH, Aarb, Mule. We have ordered 3 more and will be ordering again. These things have been a life savor for our horses. We have 15 saddles and not all will fit each horse to rider. Now they do..

To help a saddle fit better
Tiffany J on Dec 11, 2017
It's perfect for those saddles that don't give quite enough clearance over the wither, but still fits great everywhere else. Allows it to balance out evenly across.

My horse lost weight and his saddle is close to his withers - making sure he is comfortable is just as important as my comfort.
Victoria B on Apr 26, 2016
I don't know. I have never used it.

This product had good reviews and it was what I was looking for as a wither pad. The price was excellent.
COREEN R on Aug 24, 2015

to take pressure of the withers and shoulders under a saddle that is too wide otherwise
Shelley P on May 23, 2014
Had a horse who was not well muscled behind his shoulders. Our Western saddle sat too low on him. This pad works great. Raises the saddle enough to give good clearance, and comfortable for the horse. Highly recommend.
KAREN H on May 4, 2014
My mare has high whithers, anticipate this will help in case the saddle I get isn't perfect for her.

Would this help for a mid wither horse built like a triangle narrow chest an wither wider as you move back? Haven't been able to ride my gelding as all my saddles pop up in back an slip forward.
Mallory on Mar 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi - I am not exactly sure what you are asking, but it sounds like you are saying, "Would this help with a medium/mid withered horse that is built like a triangle. it has a narrow chest and wither, then is wider as you move back." Is that correct? I love our wither pad. I originally purchased it because my gelding is lower withered and higher in the butt, so when I am riding, I feel like I am pushed forward. The pad brings the saddle up more in the front and I am able to ride more comfortably. Also, I use it for my higher withered horse so that the saddle doesn't sit on his withers. It makes both of them much more comfortable. :) I hope that sort of helps you. :)
I have a western saddle that is a bit to wide at the withers, would this help even out the saddle so that it sits level?
Judy K on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You could try certainly less expensive than buying a new saddle. I bought it cause my mare does not have withers and my saddle would slide forward.
