Just Wanted to Ley Y'All Know...

Many of you probably remember my various posts about my horses saddle fit (being too low in the front and sitting on his withers). Well, I have found a solution! I got a thing called a "wither relief pad". It is a half pad that has a hole where the withers go. It's about an inch thick, and I just sit it on top of my saddle pad. It works wonders! My horse seems so much happier now!

P.S.- The title is supposed to say "let y'all know." TYPO!!!

Do you have a link to the pad? I am having a similar problem.

Yep, let me find it.

Dover Saddlery | Wither Back Saddle Pad.

Also, when your horse gets wither sores you can put it under the saddle pad so that nothing touches the sore and it works great!

I wonder if that would work under a western saddle pad and saddle :O

Hmm... it's worth a shot. You can find them a lot cheaper too, although the quality might not be as good.

@Fifty- I read in your other post that you rode in a round skirt saddle anyways, so the english wither release pad may actually be one of the few 'round skirt' models you're able to find! A western version is also made, out of felt (with a wither cut-out), in square and round, but they tend to be pricey-er.
You won't hurt your horse using the english version under your western saddle.

Price really isn't a matter right now, do you have any links to the western one?
