Prolite pads, does your horse really need one? We think so! We’ve all experienced back ache, right? Look back to the last time you had it… There’s a good chance you were irritable and uncomfortable. And why wouldn’t you be! It can leave us really struggling to get on with our day. Now, put yourself in your horses shoes for a moment.
Our horses backs are pretty amazing. They have on average 18 thoracic vertebrae, five of which are located in the withers. Each thoracic vertebra is associated with a rib. The area of the 10th-13th thoracic vertebrae is the location of some important muscle attachments involved in movement. The fact is, if we don’t look after our horses back it’ll be detrimental to their health, happiness and performance.

Non-slip Prolite Pads
Substance over style, this simple pad can be used directly against your horses back to stop both the saddle and saddlecloth moving. If your saddlecloth has a tendency to slide out, it can also be used directly beneath your saddle. For maximum stability during cross-country or show jumping, sandwich the saddlecloth between two pads.
