My new cut-back built-up saddle pad

It isnt here yet because I bought it on ebay and it has to be shipped. Someone on this forum(xicexveinsx) told me about the cut backs, so I bought on. It have a layer of foam on the saddle pad, so it lifts the saddle up, so it will definitely keep the tree from resting on his whither, I will have pics soon!

I am very sceptical that a pad will solve your saddle fit issues. It would be great if you could get some photos of your saddle on rowdy without the pad and then with the new pad.

However it is a very nice looking pad!

Didnt everyone tell you that just buying a new pad will NOT fix the problem? You should post pictures of the saddle without the pad on his back, and with it. And show that it actually does fix the problem.

Well it is built up and cutback, so the built up part with raise the saddle.

Yeah, but nothing can really fix an ill fitting saddle. You should really show pictures to prove us wrong.

The build up will not change the angle of the bars on your saddle. It's helpful for a horse with a proper back for the angle of the bars but with a higher and more narrow wither area.

If your saddle does not fit his back the build up pad will not work and you are still left with the problem of hurting your horse. The bars of a saddle need to lay flat. If they are the wrong angle then the edges of the bars will be digging into his back.

Well It's definitely a pretty saddle pad :) even coming from someone who hasn't sat in a western saddle for about... oh 6 years. Haha
