Smith Brothers Riser Pad

Saddle Pad Riser - Smith Brothers

I've tried to find a saddle for my horse..thoroughbred with somewhat high withers and a little on the narrow side ..but I can't afford to custom fit a saddle right now ..
Has anyone had any success with front riser pads?

.

If the Angle of the Bars in the Saddle are correctly matching your Horse's Angle, then those types of pads can work.
If the angles do not match, you would only be padding the problem.

Thank you ..I don't have a lot of experience saddle fitting and I just want to make sure everything is fitting properly!

What about this one..because it has adjustable pads would it be the better option? Assuming my saddle does line up with the angle of the horse..

If the bars are at the wrong angle for your Horse, that may be a solution

Oh! Okay.
So that pad could help create the correct angle for the horse?
That would probably be a handy thing to have around anyway..if it would allow me to adjust the fit for each horse..
If the angles are correct with my saddle and the horse..could a pad with a cut out for the wither maybe be all I need..
I think I'm going to go do some reading on saddle fitting..if you know of any good links feel free to share! :)

Shims that have a wedge shape can help, not that I recommend it for a permanent solution

Here is a link to some picture I posted on fitting Saddle issues.

The thing with shims and padding up it does that correct the whole frame of the Saddle? This the reason for my reluctance to say it can be a permanent solution
