Fleece Wither Pad - Half Pads from SmartPak Equine

Definitely not as nice as the Mattes fleece pads, but it definitely helped and was a fraction of the cost. If you need a wither pad as a long term solution, it might be worth buying something more expensive, though.

Thanks!

If it fits I wouldn't go with those thick bulky pads, because you'll ruin the fit in fact. Thinline is thin so doesn't interfere with the fit while works really great protecting the horse's back (as well as rider's). I could clearly tell the difference on jump I have to say (I never ride without one).

I myself use this one one: Thinline Standard Contour pad (like this one: Thinline Contour Pad Thinline (Supplies Tack - English Horse Tack - Pads Girths). This one is cheaper, but not as wide: English Thinline Half Pad Thinline (Supplies Tack - English Horse Tack - Pads Girths).

They are not cheap, but I never regret the investment. :) You can also find them used (they last long time) (I believe MBP was selling her Contour while back here for like $60 or so). If you are interested in reviews try to search here on forum: there are bunch of people here who use them, everyone seems to be happy. Lol!

Why yes I do have a Contour for sale. If you're interested, feel free to PM me. It's a great pad, but I've got 3 of them now and only need 1.

Hi,
I think I am going to go with a little bit of a thicker one for more support, thanks!

I love love love my Thinline pad. I have seen such a difference in my horse's comfort as well as mine. My horse has to see the chiropractor every few months and she has also noticed a difference in his back. I have the thicker black one for every day use and then the thinner white one for horse shows. I also trimmed it a tiny bit with scissors so you can't notice it with my hunter pad. I also like that they have many pad options. I think my next Thinline purchases will be the girth and some boots.
