Lift your saddle at the withers with this unique gel pad.
Keep your horse comfortable while you ride with this gel front riser pad. It is an extremely lightweight gel pad anatomically shaped for your horse's comfort. Provides a great saddle fit to help prevent soreness and sensitive spots. An advanced gel holds the position of the pad securely and can be used directly on your horses back. The non-toxic gel allows the skin to breathe and elevates the saddle in the front. Easy clean.

Really pleased with this front riser. My horse has high withers and finding a saddle to fit was near on impossible. She also had back problems and was really acting up when being hacked out. She also refused to jump. To cut a long story short, I had her back treated, invested in a treeless saddle and purchased this gel front riser pad. Brilliant. This weekend my daughter was show jumping with her and the horse didn't miss a beat. Jumped everything she was asked to. So clearly the treeless saddle and this gel pad have solved the problem and she's back to her happy self. Would highly recommend this gel pad.
This works amazingly well and I've seen nothing else like it. I am using it directly on my horse's back. it is fully tapered to fill the wither pockets, with the thickest part at the center and tapering down to a sliver at the edges. It fits absolutely perfectly into the wither pockets to create a smooth surface for the saddle and provide some lift at the front of the saddle. It stays put. If anything, during use it gravitates to the perfect spot to fill the wither pockets. It is super soft, jelly-like, and looks to provide great cushioning. So pleased with this, it works and fits perfectly. I will be recommending it to others that have horses with muscle atrophy in the shoulders and withers. Note: I made the mistake the first use of putting the waffled side down against the horse, that wasn't good. With the smooth side down it works perfectly directly on the horse.
I have a TB mare with a high whither, under developed top line, and hallow areas behind her whither. I have tried several half pads which just squish down and never seem to raise the saddle nearly enough to get it off her whiter. I have also tried different front risers which have all raised the front of the saddle up far too high causing it to become unbalanced the other way. This pad balances the saddle and raises it up the perfect amount! It also never slips or moves no matter what our rides entail! I would highly recommend this pad to anyone having similar issues with their horse and saddle fit. It's also a great price!
I have a TB mare with an under developed top line and hallow areas behind her whither. Half pads weren't enough to keep the saddle off her whither and all the other front risers i tried lifted it too high. This pad was the perfect solution! It raises the front of the saddle just enough by filling in the places that she's hallow and it never moves or slips. I would highly recommend this pad to to anyone who has a horse with a high whither or under developed top line!
It was exactly what I needed - my horse has no muscles yet on the front area under the saddle, and the pad helped me to solve this temporary problem. However I'm not using it directly on the horse back, but between the saddle and the pad
Great! Doesn't move at all. Great if your saddle is sitting a little low in front. Made a huge difference to my horses.
I bought this gel three month ago and my horse will have nevermore abrasion!
