I've seen these but I don't know the brand. I'd like a half pad to raise up my saddle a little on one of my horses and leave the spine and withers unpinched. It's a young growing horse who doesn't have muscle on his top line yet. Suggestions please.
The sheepskin has held up great (I even machine-wash mine - have many, many times) and my gelding reacts positively to it being right on his back.
Oddly, the ones I have are the same but fit slightly differently. However, I bought them at different times (at least a year+ apart), so it's probably just a change in manufacturing. My white/cream one seems a bit thinner than the black one - but both serve the same purpose just fine & he doesn't seem to act differently.
I second Mattes! I have a horse that is super sensitive with his spine. I have a Mattes half pad and it does wonders, you can definitely tell when its not used! They are quite pricey than others but are made of great quality and last long!
