Our Premium Gaited Saddle Pad is the same as the regular pad, but contains an extra bar. The extra bar and padding adds an additional 1/2″ on both sides to take a bit more pressure off the spine of your Tennessee Walking Horse or other gaited breed to give an extra 1/2″ of padding. Round-Skirted contoured pad designed to specifically fit Tennessee Saddlery saddles. This heavy-duty PVC construction is made with the patented Tacky-Tack material by Equitech, LLC in Tennessee. Hose off to clean does not absorb water.
