This thick shearling wool pad makes riding even more comfortable for you and your horse. It has cutouts for your legs which help to lessen strain on your hips when riding a horse that is more broad than you are comfortable with. The edges of the shearling are left raw so you can trim it to your own needs.
The foam pad under the shearling creates just a bit more lift and cushion under your bum. This provides a little relief if your hips tend to feel spread too far when riding. It is not a cure for every situation but does assist with this some. It is easy to trim to meet your own personal need. It is installed with velcro so you can make adjustments easily.
Cantle Wedge: This wedge is an adjustable cantle. It installs to the bottom of the shearling seat cover with velcro so it can easily be adjusted back or forward according to your needs. There are loops or ties on the side of this wedge so you can tie it to the D rings on your bareback pad if you want to use it without the shearling cover.
The last two images show the new cantle wedge. You can order this alone without the shearling seat cover, in which case it would tie to the rear Ds instead of attaching to the bottom of the shearling. The disadvantage is that it is not as adjustable. The new cantle wedge shown is seen on a "petite" size bareback pad. When ordered alone it will not have velcro install onto it.
