Choosing The Best Riser Pad

Some horses’ conformation makes saddle fitting a bit more challenging. Your saddle should sit level on your horse's back, both back to front, and side to side. If you notice your saddle’s cantle is lower than the pommel, or vice versa, a riser pad may be able to help.

Riser horse pads are a great tool for improving the balance of your saddle. Many riders have saddles that are tipped back, which affects the rider's position while they ride. If your saddle has a cantle that is not level with the pommel, a saddle riser pad may be beneficial. If your horse has a low back, rear riser pads for horses who have sway backs or downward sloping backs can be especially beneficial.

Frequently Asked Questions About Riser Pads

What is a riser pad for horses?

Riser pads are a type of correctional saddle that either lifts the front or back of the saddle to level the back of the saddle to be even with the pommel. This improves the positioning of the saddle and can help improve the rider's balance.

Does my saddle need a riser pad?

If the cantle of your saddle is below the pommel, or vice versa, your saddle could potentially use a saddle riser pad. Riser pads are commonly used with horses who have sway backs or downward sloping backs.
