Choosing the Best High Wither Saddle Pad

High withered horses tend to have a long concave section between the shoulder and the point of withers, leaving an unwanted gap between your horse and the saddle. This gap doesn’t allow the saddle to sit properly and evenly disperse weight, causing the saddle to pinch the withers at best, or sit on the point of the withers at worst. Horses with high withers also have a tendency to have narrow shoulders, which can cause the saddle to pinch and limit movement. By using a high wither saddle pad, you can greatly improve the fit of your saddle and provide your horse more comfort while riding.

If your horse has high withers and a narrow back they may benefit from using a high wither saddle pad. A saddle pad for high-withered horses usually has an opening at the front of the pad to leave extra space for the withers. This helps relieve pressure and often improves the fit of your saddle.
