Classic Equine Saddle Pad Shims
The Classic Equine Saddle shims are designed to improve the fit of your saddle to your horse when experiencing a hollow area behind the horses shoulders/ wither.
Not all horses are built the same and for a few varying reasons, some horses experience a narrowing / hollowing behind the shoulders and over the wither. With a horse experiencing this, it can effect how your saddle fits and sits on your horse. The shims are designed fill out this void and fit between the saddle pad and your saddle to sit your saddle level on your horse and prevent the saddle “dipping” down in behind the shoulders.
With a tapered wedge on the shims, the Shims are made of closed cell foam construction which relieves pressure, absorbs shock and levels out and improves the saddle fit. You are able to custom fit every individual horse with these shims and place them exactly where you need them, unlike some built up or built in shim pads.
A good rule of thumb is to always ensure that the wide edge is to the front of the saddle, the flatter side underneath the saddle. The Shims work best when kept in line with the front of your saddle.
Please Note that not all horses require shimming, only those experiencing muscle loss or require lifting / levelling of the front of the saddle, that will require shims.
The Classic Equine Saddle Pad Shims are the preferred choice of many great horsemen & horsewomen.
