This is awesome for my horse. He has narrow shoulders with high withers and this corrects the saddle placement. I got the longer of the two and it is really long so unless you have a really large saddle go with the shorter pad.

i used this because my saddle was too wide for my horse in the front. the front would end up laying on the wither. that is so bad for the horse. with this pad, it fixed everything, i didnt have to purchase another saddle, which i had come to love. the saddle sat upright (not too high either)exactly where it should be. and it did not effect my seat or my riding. i did not notice any difference or feel that my saddle was any wider. my paint had withers that where a tad high, and this pad after about three rides formed to his back and body. i advise not switching this pad between horses as it does form to the horse. the price is up there though, but was worth it. it saved me in cost in having to purchase a new saddle and was worth it for ultimate comfort for my horse, or messing around with build up pads that can cause slipping. i did not experience slipping or sliding and i was doing lots of arena training with my horse, slide stops, spins, lopes, runs, cantering side passes..and warm ups. even a couple of days when he was feeling fresh and had a couple "bucking fits" early on, on the first day with this pad.(that was because of behavior issues, the bucking had nothing to do with the pad, i want to assure you the pad is very comfy for the horse the first time. my horse was a stallion who was abused and had bucking issues.) and even then, it did not slip or slide. i recommend letting them sweat in it a couple of times, and it forms wonderfully. i purchased mine from another site, and i must say i regret it, as i paid more. at the time i did not know about this site. now i pretty much order everything from here if they carry it. very well built. no seams coming off. dries fast. no over sweating and i was training in the texas heat at the time. i do wish the price would come down a bit though.

We run a trail riding business and have several horses with high withers and dropped shoulders. We were having problems with sore withers, even with good quality saddles. We tried all sorts of pads and configurations with gels pads.....nothing worked as well as this biofit pad. We now own several of these. No more sore horses! Great pad!

Worked great on my gelding. He used to be stiff while riding and the saddle put pressure on his shoulders before I bought this pad. After using this pad, he is a lot more flexible, the pressure is relieved and he enjoys being ridden more. This pad has worked great for him!

My paint horse has been to the chiropractor several times, and was battling back issues prior to getting this pad. After camping for several trips and purchasing many pads, I came across the Classic Equine Biofit pad. My horse has not been sore one day after riding, from walking to canter work since I used this pad. I have three different horses with three different saddles, and this pad works with each horse. I will NEVER use another pad beside Classic Equine as long as I own horses!

I have an Appendix mare who is very narrow through her withers. I would find any western saddle, no matter how well it fit her would slip back and roll because her withers just wouldn't hold the saddle in place. I bought this pad, and it was a little pricey, but definitely well worth it. I have had no problems with her saddle fit now, and she is so much more comfortable. I like how the felt does not roll due to slipping. I could not have been more pleased. I love all of the Classic Equine products, not excluding this one!

extra padding is too far forward for our TB-type horses
