The ‘Front Riser’ is particularly suited to horses with high withers or that have lost muscle and bulk at the top of the shoulder and below the wither. The pad has minimal depth over the centre so doesn’t increase pressure under the pommel. However, its unique honeycomb structure ensures the the main weight bearing areas are compensated. Traditional ‘wedge style’ risers that taper to the back of the saddle often pivot on the wither & spine increasing pressure under the front of the saddle as well as causing an unwanted 'rise' in the whole saddle.
The tacky nature of these pads ensure minimal movement either laterally or back to front so they are in effect Non-Slip pads as well. They can be used in conjunction with the the Acavallo Shaped Gel Pads or can be placed on top of any numnah, half pad or square.
These risers have a depth of 2.5cm
