Product Details

Long Shoulder Bridge Pad 42


Dimensions: 20"L x 9"D


Based on our saddle fitting experience, we've introduced this bridge pad to accommodate a horse with muscle atrophy, or hollows, behind the shoulder blades, prominent withers, and sway back. It's available in two widths: 3/4" or 1". The 3/4" thickness is for a horse with moderate hollows and sway back; the 1" is for more pronounced hollows and more severe sway back.

It's designed to fit under your regular saddle pad and is made with memory foam so it fills in the gaps between the horse and saddle. This provides a much more comfortable saddle fit for the horse as it will disperse the rider's weight more evenly. Encased in black, cotton spandex for easy care. Just rinse and air dry.

Bridge pads are not full pads-they are small pads to fit under your normal pad. It bridges the gap between the horse's back and saddle tree to help distribute the rider's weight.

Made my saddle fit so much better! This bridge pad is an excellent option for those hard to fit horses. My gelding has a sway back and hollows behind his withers. Fitting a saddle was nearly impossible. He just never quite performed well with any other corrective pads and shims.

This pad solved my issue. It filled in areas for a better saddle fit and I instantly notices my gelding was much more comfortable, and his attitude and gaits improved. I never ride him without this pad anymore.

Cons: there are two major cons with this pad. One is it slides around ALOT. It takes extra time to ensure proper fit on his back before putting the saddle on. Sometimes I have to re-adjust. I've had this pad fall off from under my saddle once while riding due to how slippery it is. The second con is how memory foam gets very stiff in cold weather before it eventually warms up on the horses back. This makes tacking up on cold days a pain. As once the pad has warmed up, it has shifted and I will need to re-adjust it again.
Pros:Improved saddle fit. Fills in hollows in the back. Made my horse much more comfortable.
Cons:Extremely slippery on the horses back. Makes tacking up more difficult. Memory foam gets hard in cold weather, takes a while to become soft again.

Tacky Tack version of this pad works very good The tacky tack version of this pad works great, but a little thick for my horse. A little thinner would have been better.
Pros:None
Cons:None
