Hello all. I have a small horse that practically has no withers. No matter what saddle/ girth comb I've tried the saddle always slides around even with wither pads. So my question is does anyone have experience with neoprene pads? I was thinking of investing in one to see if it help hold the saddle in place better. Any suggestion are welcome thank you.
We use wool pads on both our horses. I have no trouble at all with my saddle shifting but our mare is wider. We just had a new chiropractor come out and adjust both horses. My husband rides the mare and has a white patch of hairs behind the left shoulder blade and a little bitty white mark behind the right shoulder. Onher back where the back of the bars are she also developed two white circles about the size of a quarter. Her saddle shifts from the middle of the back to the right anywhere from 2-5 inches! She checked the saddle on her without a pad and it appears to fit in the front but not in the back. She said the angle kind of flattens out toward the back..hence the shifting. Need to find a saddle where the angle of the bars hold the same front to back. She said to try a $40.00 fleece.
