Need a good saddle pad for swayback saddlebred

I am very new to the horse life. I just recently bought a saddlebred with swayback and am wanting to get her a new saddle pad. Does anyone have any recommendations? I found one that is filled with cork. Anyone heard of that beofre?

I think Reinsman puts out a western pad for sway back. So far haven't seen one for english.

I have never seen them in person, but I noticed the other day on one of my favorite shopping websites (Valley Vet Equine) that Circle Y now offers 3 different types of pads for bridging/swayback. Each one made to fit a different shaped back. The swayback type even comes in two different thicknesses.

I think that is an awesome idea. It's about time someone put some thought into the issue of helping horses with less-than-typical backs ride more comfortably.

When a little gal owned a senior swayback, not severe but enough to cause bridging, I used thick foam wedges under the saddle on top of the pad. It took some fiddling and a sharp knife easily trimmed the foam. We started with 4" foam which compressed considerably but it worked.

Take a look at shimmable pads. ThinLine makes a line of them in english and western. I have several of the english ones.

For Western, I always used a cutback saddle pad with a wither pad for Roany. He was very sway backed!

For English, a Wintec wither pad works very well most of the time.

Good luck finding a saddle pad!
