“6 Adjustable Shim Pockets ”: Made for horses that need help with saddle fit and a multi “Corrective” saddle pad.
Why buy the Select A Fit? You need a saddle pad for your horse with six custom-fit and adjustable shim pockets, where you will be able to change your build-ups or reliefs when required.
How will this help your horse, you might ask? You will no longer have to worry about having multiple horses or saddles and figuring out how to fit various needs. You can ride it with no changes and all shims in, and it works like a traditional saddle pad. Our Shims are now available in Wool Felt (if you are looking for a more moldable, pliable, “Softer” support) or Foam (if you want to have a “Firmer” or stiffer support) choices depending on what you need when riding. Need a correction or change? Simply add or remove the shims as needed. Pull all the shims and replace them when ready and necessary for a round-backed horse with no withers.
Tips on using the Select A Fit “6 Adjustable Shim Pockets Saddle Pad”…
- Use the front shims only in the wither area to assist in lifting the front of your saddle if it is leaning downhill. (Remove the middle and rear sets of shims)
- Use the middle shims only in the topline area to assist in filling in the drop along the horse’s backline. (Remove the front and rear sets of shims)
- Use the rear shims only to assist in lifting the back of your saddle if it is leaning down in the back. (Remove the front and middle sets of shims)
If you are frustrated and tired of dealing with saddle pads that don’t work for your horse or just looking to give us a try. Team Equine is here to help!
You can trust Team Equine to make a saddle pad that is “Custom Built” and handcrafted one at a time just for you. Get ready to design your own “custom saddle pad” by choosing all of your features that create a look and fit for you and your horse. You can pick your saddle pad, wool felt grade, wither style, skirt shape, thickness, wear leathers, and the thread color of choice that we sew your leathers or decorative leather accents onto your own Team Equine saddle pad with the pad size. Add some color to the top of your pad with an all-weather color top that will add density to your pad for longer-lasting durability in the outdoor elements, or go “Natural” with no top at all (please note: Natural pads are generally less dense).
****Take your Team Equine pad to the next level with extra options like premium Merino Wool Fleece (that wicks away sweat and keeps your horse cooler), or get that “bold and blinged out” look with a set of our decorative leather accents.
Please consider buying from our family business that cares about you and your horse.
And remember… the great thing about owning a TE saddle pad is that you can ride it with confidence that you have a custom-built saddle pad that was made just for you and your unique horse for rodeo, riding western pleasure, trail riding, training, or anywhere your destination leads you…
Team Equine saddle pads are handcrafted with pride and have been “Made in The United States of America” since 1999 in Molalla, Oregon.
