    Smile Bareback Pads For Bony Withers?

    Any suggestions? I am wanting to save up for a bareback pad that is comfy but also will make the ride easier considering Charlie is 22 and his withers stick up and his back is just flat out uncomfortable! Please reccomend!

    Just make sure you get one that doesn't have stirrups :) bareback pads with stirrups are just plain dangerous.

    Subscribing because I would like to ride bareback more but I have an uncomfortably-built horse too!

    This is the one I have: English Bareback Pad

    I like it and it's been quite durable with regular use. Good cushion for both me and my horse and it's never slipped or slid on me.

    I have the western version of Sharpies pad. Basically the only difference is it's a square cut with a Velcro pouch on one side and a water bottle holder on the other, perfect for trail rides. It is very cushy, stable, and the suede gives you a lot of stick. I rode a barely broke 3 yo in this pad and easily sat a number of shies and spooks.

    Yes I know the ones with stirrups are dangerous and can hurt the horse's back! Charlie's whole spine feels like it sticks up and I just don't ahve good balance yet! So suede is what I want to look for in bareback pads! Okay!

    So, yes some horses are more comfortable bareback than others, but maybe your horse needs a bit more weight and/or muscle? Especially given his age?

    I have a Best Friends brand bareback pad, I can clip a horn bag to the front strap, and it has a pocket for a small water bottle on the back of one side and another pocket on the other side, it has a nonstick seat and a nice girth. I have started putting a cushy white English pad underneath because of a slightly bony spine/withers. I really love mine!

    I should say that the pad is very padded and comfy. I use it on our mare as well and no need for the extra pad, it is just the way my gelding is built.
