HELP! My saddle pad is rubbing my horse what do i do?
My saddle pad has rubbed my horse to the point where he has no hair on his back/hip area where the edge of the pad sits. I have tried using different pads and he's even had time off but nothing seems to be helping. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to fix it? Thanks!
Is the pad too big?
Did the other pads rub as well?
get a new pad, problem solved lol
I have tried several different pads and they all seem to rub.I have used neoprene type one, fleece ones, and nothing seems to help. I think the problem is that his back is so short :s
I'm guessing we're talking about a western pad? I'd say that you should find a smaller pad... Like a barrel pad? Worth a try! :D
I have that problem with my Mustang. His back is short and slightly dipped and every saddle/pad seems to rub him. When I finally got a saddle that fits him great the rubbing is very minimal and doesn't go down to the skin. But before that the hair would get pretty short. It was/is always more noticable in the winter when his hair is long. In the summer the sweat seems to lubricate his back and keeps the hair shaving effect to a minimum.
It's possible it is the flare of your saddle skirt more than the pad. I really don't have a solution other than finding the right saddle and pad combination. But I sympathize!
Maybe a saddle problem? Just keep trying different ones or I would suggest a barrel pad =]

Sounds like a saddle problem, not a saddle pad problem.
We need pictures of the saddle with pad on and off your horse, and show the rubbing.
