English Horse Saddle Pads – Protective Pads

A little extra protection can go a long way in relieving spinal pressure. Protective pads help prevent muscle fatigue and soreness while improving saddle fit for added comfort.

The original shims made to fit the Thinline Trifecta Sheepskin pad to add cushion under the saddle, adjust saddle fit, and be more comfortable for your horse.

$24.99 - $29.99
Thinline Shims for the Trifecta Quilted Half Pad

The original shims made to fit the Thinline Trifecta Cotton pad to aide in saddle fit or to add extra comfort. They will add cushion and can adjust the fit of your saddle slightly.

$24.99 - $29.99
This fleece half pad has a built in memory foam core that absorbs shock and conforms to the horse’s back, providing substantial cushioning beneath the saddle to prevent and alleviate soreness.

Featuring a wither cutout that relieves pressure on the spine and provides a better fit, this pad is perfect for hard to fit horses, horses with high withers, and older horses with sunken top lines. The pad’s memory foam core is sandwiched between soft fleece padding and a quilted cotton underside. The quilted cotton wicks away sweat and moisture to keep the horse’s back cool.

If you spend a lot of time in the saddle, your horse might be experiencing soreness and muscle fatigue. These English horse saddle pads help to relieve the pressure on the horse’s spine and prevent muscle fatigue. These pads also improve the fit of the saddle to maximize comfort, especially for long training sessions or show days. We have high-quality saddle pads from companies like Dura-Tech®, Professional’s Choice and ThinLine.

Dura-Tech, Professional’s Choice and ThinLine Half Pads

Our premium half pads are made from comfortable and supportive materials like memory foam, soft fleece padding, quilted cotton and sheepskin. Depending on the model, some provide wither relief and certain styles have a built-in memory foam core to absorb shock. Memory foam will mold itself to the horse’s back for added cushion support underneath the saddle. This helps to prevent soreness from long hours of riding or training. Other features include quilted cotton, for wicking sweat away and keeping your horse cool and easy machine wash care. You’ll also find models with air channels and non-slip breathable material. There are saddle pads that flex with the horse’s movement for no pinching. Make the ride more comfortable for both yourself and your horse.

Gel Saddle Pad Systems

Our gel pads from Dura-Tech are lightweight, yet they offer superior ventilation and shock-absorbing support. Made using Dura-Tech’s Intelli-Gel technology, the gripping gel surface prevents the saddle from slipping. Some styles include a sheepskin lining underneath the gel pad. Gel pads are constructed from thermoplastic polymer gel that distributes pressure evenly. These gel pads can be used underneath pads for horses that are more prone to becoming sore. The Dura-Tech Gel-Lite™ Support Pad System is designed to customize saddle fit for horses of all conformations.

Riser Pads and Wither Pads

Rise pads and wither pads from Dura-Tech and EQ Innovations help customize saddle fit to a horse’s conformation. Riser pads lift the back while wither pads add comfort and stability to the shoulder and wither area. Protective pads give riders the choice of material from molded EVO that is shock absorbent, wool felt and synthetic fleece to optimize the comfort level. Certain styles are made from molded EVO form that is flexible and absorbs shock. Depending on the model, they may feature air vent holes for proper ventilation, a contoured cut, machine washable easy care and synthetic fleece lining. There are also wool felt tapered wither pads that release heat while wicking away moisture.
