Horse saddle pads are designed to ensure maximum comfort for the horse, allowing the horse to perform at its best and therefore giving the rider a better ride, however sometimes more than just a saddle pad is needed – this is where the use of a half pad or riser comes into play. The use of a half pad or riser pad can help in providing added comfort to the horse which cannot be given through just a standard saddle pad.
Some half pads, riser pads and numnah's can assist in the fit of your saddle and therefore allow the horse to move with more freedom and comfort. Riser pads (particularly those that have the option of shims) can assist in balancing the saddle out. For example a riser pads or half pads which have shims in the front would assist in lifting the front of the saddle up. Having a balanced saddle can not only increase the rider’s comfort but also even out the pressure and fit of the saddle on the horse's back.
Horses are constantly changing shape, particularly through different seasons. Horses that have recently lost or gained weight would require a saddle fit by a professional saddle fitter to make sure that the saddle they are using on their horse still fits, however as a temporary solution, a riser pad, half pad or numnah can be a solution.
