I'm not sure what the correct name of this is
I was wondering if it would be a good investment to buy some cusions that drape over the horses wither's. The look like little shoulder pads for a horse.
The reason why I was thinking about buying some is to see if it would help with my saddle always sliding back. I have a new saddle pad,new saddle,and I am using my breast collar and even punched extra holes in it to see if it would help if I tightened it. All my saddles slide because she has big ol mutton withers and is pretty flat.
Awesome thing is that she seems to no longer be experiencing back pain:) and I found a saddle that fits her well.

If the saddle slides back, then you may be putting it too far forward. A breastcollar should not be used to hold the saddle in place during general riding. It's there as a precaution for hill-work or hard arena work that could cause the saddle to shift.

I believe you're talking about a "wither widener":
Felt Wider-Wither Saddle Pad Enhancer -

If she's already wide, then this product wouldn't be of much help. Have you tried a tacky type pad?
