Helpful Information
Saddle Pad Sizing
Our Guarantee

The Roma® Pro Tek Riser Pad has a padded back that raises the seat of your saddle and a flared front to cushion your horse’s shoulders. The Pro Tek pad uses encapsulated, shock-absorbing foam in multilayered construction that molds to your horse’s conformation during movement. The pad is anatomically shaped to help provide protection to your horse’s muscles, spine and back and to help reduce stress on shoulder muscles.

It won’t slip or absorb moisture, and it allows a comfortable feel between you and your horse. Ventilation holes release body heat to help keep your horse cool. Molded to fit high into the saddle’s gullet, this Pro Tek Riser pad is both thin and lightweight.

Shaped Saddle Pad Sizing
Curved to mimic the shape of a saddle, shaped fleece pads are available for jumping, all-purpose and dressage saddles. They can be made of genuine sheepskin or synthetic fleece.Size is usually determined by matching the pad to both the type of saddle and the seat size. (To measure the seat size, run a tape measure from one of the screw heads on the side of the pommel to the middle of the cantle.) You can also take the measurement of the saddle pad’s spine and drop an apply those to your saddle. You want an even border of about two inches of saddle pad showing around the edge of your saddle. To achieve the perfect look for your particular saddle, you may want to try pads from different manufacturers.

All-Purpose “Square” Saddle Pad Sizing
Offered in sizes for horses and ponies, these all-purpose pads are suited to saddles designed for jumping. Take the spine measurement in consideration of the length of your saddle’s panels front to back and the drop measurement in consideration of the length of your saddle’s flaps. A pad should cover your horse’s back under the saddle with a bit of pad visible in front of the pommel and behind the cantle. The amount of pad you see is up to your personal preference and the needs of your horse.

Note:  Using a Short Girth with a Monoflap Event Saddle
If you use a short girth with a Monoflap Event saddle, be sure you have at least three to four fingers’ width between the top of the girth and the bottom of the saddle pad and saddle flap on both sides. If the girth comes to close to the edge of the saddle pad or flap, your horse’s skin can be pinched.

Dressage Saddle Pad Sizing
Dressage pads are cut to fit the long, straight flaps of dressage saddles and are often contoured along the withers and topline. Take the spine measurement in consideration of the length of your saddle’s panels front to back and the drop measurement in consideration of the length of your saddle’s flaps. A pad should cover your horse’s back under the saddle with a bit of pad visible in front of the pommel and behind the cantle. The amount of pad you see is up to your personal preference and the needs of your horse.

Note:  Using a Short Girth with a Dressage Saddle
If you use a short girth with your dressage saddle, be sure you have at least three to four fingers’ width between the top of the girth and the bottom of the saddle pad and saddle flap on both sides. If the girth comes to close to the edge of the saddle pad or flap, your horse’s skin can be pinched.
