Half Pads & Risers
Half pads are a type of horse saddle pad that is placed under the saddle to provide additional cushioning, support, and protection for the horse's back. English half pads are specifically designed for English-style saddles, which are commonly used for disciplines such as dressage, jumping, and eventing.
English half pads come in a variety of materials, sizes, and designs to suit different riding preferences and horse needs. Some popular materials used in English half pads include sheepskin, fleece, gel, and memory foam. These materials offer different levels of shock absorption, moisture-wicking, and breathability to keep the horse comfortable during rides.
In addition to cushioning and support, English half pads can also help to improve saddle fit, reduce pressure points, and enhance the overall comfort and performance of the horse. They are a versatile and practical accessory for any English rider looking to ensure their horse's well-being and comfort during training and competitions.
