The Swayback Pad helps keep the saddle from riding on the horse's shoulders and loin by filling in the hollow area on the back of a swayback horse.
Also works great on more narrow back breeds or horses with a more prominent wither.
I bought this pad for my high withered, sway backed 25yr mare. It slipped and slid. I was disapointed with it as much as it costs. Not worth the time or money. Wish it was better made and thicker all the way around.
"This is a fantastic swayback pad. I would definitely get the 30"" x 30"", even if you have a bigger horse. It is very very thick, which I love. Thy only problem is just personal, I would rather it be contoured especially since it is a swayback pad. I would definitely recommend this pad! "
