Specifically, for conditions where riding is over extended distances or rough trails. Also recommended for pressure sensitive horses and those that have already had saddle sores. The edges of these inserts are soft and rounded so they don't create a ridge. Instead, they taper and flatten at the edges to stop any pressure during long rides. These pads are designed to distribute weight evenly through a sheet of polyurethane foam rubber, and to absorb pressure. Great cushioning properties at approximately 4/5" thick (.79 inches - 20mm)Helpful Tip: You should check all your inserts for uneven wear about every 6-12 months and replace them if needed.Click Here for more information on shimming your saddle through the pad! When should I use additional padding in the saddle pad? On a large majority of horses the Barefoot saddle can be used with a pad without additional pads inside. The saddle can always adjust itself ideally to the horse's stage of training etc. It is important that the saddle lays level on the horse when viewed from the side, meaning that front and rear gullet should be at the same height. Also when standing right behind the horse though the saddle should be in balance. Therefore, it can sometimes be necessary to insert an additional piece of rubberfoam in parts of the pad: i.e. in case the horse is higher at the croup, you simply use a second layer of padding, whereas a horse with broad shoulders needs a lift-up in the rear. In case of questions don't hesitate to contact us: saddle specialists enjoy helping you - always with the well-being of your horse in mind. In order to evaluate your horse's saddle area, simply send us a picture of it viewed directly from the side and standing all four limbs equally with his head in normal position.
