What is a horse correction pad? 

It is commonly said that a custom saddle should fit perfectly to the shape and needs of the horse and rider, however, this is not entirely true. Often, we will need a good pad or saddle correction pad to correct certain difficulties and make our horse feel completely comfortable.

A good pad or correction pad can be, in this sense, very valuable tools and we recommend their use in many cases, for example, when horses have skeletal or muscular asymmetries, muscular atrophy, and in other occasions such as the ones we are going to point out briefly below:

If horses have big o asymmetrical shoulders: many scientific studies have shown the importance of correcting the fit of saddles for horses with asymmetric shoulder and, in order to achieve this objective a correctly fitted correction pad or horse cover correction pad is an excellent tool for lifting the saddle clear of the asymmetric or big shoulders, increasing shoulder freedom and allowing equal pressure on the saddle panel when the shoulder is in rotation.

When horses are young, and they are growing, young horses can have their back shape and balance change during the first 4 to 5 years of their riding years. In this sense, wedge correction pads are useful for balancing the saddle from front to back through these growth and muscle changes.

When horses have prominent spine raised above the level of the back muscles:  Some breeds of horses, such as thoroughbreds, have more carp-like back profiles. In these cases, the use of a sheepskin lined pad provide comfort and freedom of movement to the horse. On the other hand, young horses or horses with muscle wasting that are still developing stronger dorsal musculature may also show an elevated spine profile. The pad protects the vertebrae, preventing the panels from putting direct pressure on the spinal processes.
