Question BioFit Correction pad equibrand???

I was wondering if you all thought that this saddle pad:

BioFit Correction Pad Equibrand (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Accessories - Pads)

Would help my saddle fit my pony better? The saddle pinches her withers and after a long ride her sweat marks are fine except for over both withers they are completely dry, while the rest of her is soaked. I know there alot of post on this subject but I am kind of new to this so I just wanted to make sure before I spent $140 on it. Or if someone thought that there was a better brand to get. Thanks!!

A different pad will not help an ill fitting saddle what so ever.

A pad will not help a saddle that pinches. Extra pads can help a saddle that is a bit too wide.

Some pictures would help. Take a side shot and a 3/4 of the horse's shoulder. For the front 3/4 shot, be sure to get the WHOLE shoulder, so we can see how the saddle lays against it. Pictures will tell us if padding will help or not.

For correction pads, I really like the Skito Correction saddle pads. You can swap out shims and they're custom-made to order. They're very versatile.

To my unexperienced eye the saddle looks too wide... But I could very well be wrong.

Is she a POA? She's adorable! I love POA's. =)

So if its too wide, a saddle pad can correct it? Yep she's a POA :)

No, pads can't correct an ill fitting saddle. If the saddle is too wide it'd be like trying to put on multiple pairs of thick socks to make a shoe that's way too big for you fit, not too comfortable.
You're probably going to be looking for a different saddle. =(

YES, a properly shimmed saddle pad can very easily fix a saddle that's too wide. Your saddle is a bit too wide, but not terribly so. The right pad will make your saddle much better.

That said, it may not be a permanent fix. You might keep your eye out for a saddle that fits better. Look for a round skirt QH or Semi-QH tree. That saddle is almost too long (just barely fits length-wise). A round skirt saddle with the same seat size should fit better.

Really? I didn't know that. Does that only apply when the saddle is only a little too wide or does it always apply?

Right, only when the saddle is a little too wide.

If the saddle is too narrow, there is nothing you can do.

If the saddle is REALLY wide (sits down on the withers and flares way out from the shoulders), then adding enough padding to make it fit will often make it unstable and it will slip and slide, and possibly cause other problems.
