This pad is the perfect pad to solve the problem of bridging saddles. In many cases, a saddle will fit a rider perfectly, but does not quite fit the horse. This pad, when used in conjunction with a regular pad which goes against the horses skin, will fill those gaps and give the horse much more comfort. This pad equalizes the pressure all across the back, diminishing the possibility of sores. Made of a durable black cotton twill fabric that covers a foam filled pad. The underside is made of felt with a cut back pommel area. Size is 18.5 From the cut back to the cantle. 13 At cantle, 11.75 Center. Light weight. Machine washable in cold water, gentle cycle.
