Our large selection of durable Western work pads is designed to be ridden in each and every day. Providing a layer of cushion between your saddle and your horse, working saddle pads help to keep your horse’s back comfortable while decreasing painful pressure points. Additionally, they help to absorb - and in some cases dissipate - moisture from your horse’s skin which can be uncomfortable and, in extreme cases, can cause saddle sores.
We carry a large inventory of Western work saddle pads in a wide variety of colors, materials, sizes, and styles from your favorite equestrian tack brands, including Classic Equine, Diamond Wool, Maytex, Total Saddle Fit, Toklat, and Weaver Leather. Classic felt pads and traditional wool pads are popular due to their inherent ability to conform to your horse’s back while wicking sweat away from your horse’s coat. Other work pads are manufactured from innovative, technical materials which encourage airflow to prevent overheating and minimize muscle fatigue. Other specialized pads feature padding on the withers and/or kidneys to relieve pressure on these sensitive areas and promote proper saddle fit.
For our competitive customers, many equestrians utilize their trusty work pad under a thin colorful saddle blanket when they attend horse shows. This gives your attire a polished show ring look while still providing your horse with the comfort and support that they have come to expect.
We carry work pads that are appropriate for every Western discipline. Pleasure riders, trail riders, reiners, ropers, equitation riders, and other stock seat equestrians all find suitable Western pads for their daily use in our online and in-store inventory. If you have any questions regarding the Western saddle pads that we carry or would like assistance choosing the best work pad for your horse, we encourage you to speak to a member of friendly and highly-trained sales staff, many of whom have years of experience in the barn and in the saddle.
