For you and your horse, comfortable riding means having the right equipment, including appropriate and good-quality horse saddle pad sets. These saddle pads help achieve optimal saddle fit and distribute pressure more evenly. In addition, they help limit friction between the saddle and your horse's back, protecting its skin, muscles and withers while providing additional cushioning for the kidneys. Beyond protecting your horse's back, the saddle pads also help improve your horse's performance by wicking sweat and helping make your saddle last longer.

Choosing the correct saddle pads is vital to your horse's well-being. When selecting your product, ensure you prioritise saddle fit, avoiding any pressure on your horse's spine or withers. Then, choose the best type of saddle pad. Square shaped pads are best for dressage. All purpose can be used for jumping, eventing or pony club, and versatile half pads add support for use across all disciplines, alone or combined with full sets, cut backs are used for jumping saddles.

Also important is the shape you select. All Sound Advice pads are contoured along the spine. Contour-shaped sets are best for horses with prominent withers or a dip in their back. Making the best type, shape, and material choices is easier when you rely on professional advice, such as from Sound Advice Horse Health. We can do customised shapes/materials/colours for clients who are looking for specific designs.
