  2. Le Mieux Wither Relief Memory Foam Half Pad

    RRP £79.96

    From: £75.96

    The Le Mieux Wither Relief Memory Foam Half Pad is superbly comfortable and supportive, made from low profile memory foam which supports the saddle while evenly distributing the rider's weight and pressure. The foam becomes more malleable and compliant as it warms up, allowing the panels of the saddle to bed themselves into the foam. This increases the stability of your saddle and reduces any unwanted movement. This half pad is designed with a carbon mesh spine insert which helps to ensure optimum wither relief and air flow - the pad's high wither shape reduces any pressure to this sensitive area. 

    The Le Mieux Wither Relief Memory Foam Half Pad has a smart and stylish finish, featuring contrast binding, metal motif and PU leather detailing. It's suitable for use with a variety of saddle models and is ideal to partner with the Le Mieux Wither Relief Jumping Pad.

    Available in Navy, Grey and Black; size Large (32cm height from the wither; 58cm length).

Half Pads, Risers and Gel Pads

When it comes to saddle pads there are many different types to consider, on this page you will find a number of different types which are not as commonly used, but still extremely good.

Gel pads for horses are a fairly popular item, the gel pad stops the saddle from moving side to side or up or down the horse's back. They can be used directly on the horse's back or can be used under the saddle to create a soft cushion that helps in absorbing impact. The gel pads we offer come from a number of great brands, buying a Shires, Norton or Acavallo gel pad has never been easier.

Half pads are used for additional padding under the saddle, often made from a sheepskin or other softer material. Sheepskin half pads have become increasing popular within the equestrian community over the last year or so. Our selection includes some of the biggest equestrian names, so you know when you buy a Cottage Craft or Le Mieux half pad, you are getting the very best.

Riser pads are special pads in which the rear side is raised higher up than the front side. This is the case as they are primarily used under saddles which do not fit perfectly on the back of the horse. If you think your saddle isn't a great fit for your horse and getting a new saddle isn't really an option at the moment you may want to consider a riser pad.
