The Horze Gel Rear Elevating Saddle Pad is an extremely lightweight gel pad anatomically shaped for your horse's comfort and can be used directly on your horse's back. An advanced gel holds the position of the pad securely without damage. The gel pad allows the skin to breathe and elevates the saddle in the rear. This can be used with the Horze front elevating gel pad, if needed. This product is non-toxic and is easy to care for. This gel rising pad provides a great saddle fit to help prevent soreness and sensitive spots.
