Offer optimal comfort to your horse's back. SMx Air Ride OrthoSport Saddle Pads are specifically designed for strong-shouldered and prominent-withered horses. OrthoSport pads have a 1/2" breathable core, plus extra padding just behind the shoulders and along either side of the spine. This gives a better fit on horses that are a little hollow behind the shoulders or high withered. The design also works well on most roping horses due to the extra shock absorption, and is especially good for older horses. You would not need this type of pad on a very round horse with smaller withers.
The extra padding in the dished-out areas behind the shoulders and along the spine helps to achieve a better saddle fit and assists in the even distribution of pressure across the entire back, especially relieving pressure from the highly susceptible withers and kidney areas. It also allows additional airflow along the horse's back. 100% merino wool lining helps wick away moisture and conforms to the horse's back to provide maximum comfort. 33" x 35". Black.
