We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Cashel Reverse Wedge gradually decreases from 1 1/4" at the front to 1/2" at the back. The Cashel Reverse Wedge is ideal for providing additional padding for the high withered/narrow shouldered horse. It also helps prevent the saddle from sliding forward and can be used to level the saddle.
*Engineered to provide outstanding back protection and shock absorbency.
*Made with a unique closed-cell foam originally designed for the aerospace industry.
*Will not collapse or absorb moisture and bacteria the way open-cell foam pads do, nor will it retain heat and add unnecessary weight the way liquid gel pads do.
*Conforming to your horse's back, your Cashel® Cushion will help relieve pressure points and is tapered at the edge to eliminate uncomfortable ridges, allowing closer contact with your horse.

Dressage. Black. Medium (fits 17" saddles or Large (fits 17 1/2" saddles).

    Cashel Reverse Wedge is rated 4.4706 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Just For Dressage We use this pad under our reining saddles to help with the "downhill" horses. It provides just enough lift to level out their backs but doesn't make so much difference that it changes how they ride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economical solution useful to fill in the gaps when a horse has not enough musculature around his withers to keep the saddle in the correct position. Not that easy to position correctly I have to say, but that would be an issue with this type of pad...not this particular pad. Does the job well & is not expensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality It's a nice quality wedge pad. The only problem I have is that it slides back sometimes, but my horse has a pretty low back so that's probably why.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I was looking for This is a good pad for a downhill horse. I only wish that it were a little larger around, as I think it is designed for an english saddle. I ride in a western round skirt, and also in an EZFit treeless saddle. It works well with both, but could be bigger as I said. The depth of the wither part is perfect. I feel level and stable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Slopey Saddle= No More Pinning Mare Ears The Mare got flabby and weak over the winter and her saddle was too big. Enter Stage Right -The Reverse Wedge. It's a nice fix for a forwarded sloping saddle. It's not very pretty but it WORKS. My one complaint is that it's a bit short for my 18" jumping saddle, but beggers can't be choosers as apparently nothing is made for this size saddle...which is giving me a complex but that's a story for another time. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution I have tried many combinations of saddles and pads to fit my shark-fin withered Arab. This wedge works! Finally, I can be assured I'm not hurting his withers when I ride. Thanks for a great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pad for the price, but not breathable. This is a great pad for horses with high "dippy" withers, or loss of muscling in the shoulders. It's great at shock absorption, and very lightweight. The only complaint is that this pad doesn't breathe at all, and a horse can get quite sweaty with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for growing horses This pad worked wonderfully on my young, slightly downhill mare. It put the saddle at the proper angle and allowed her to move freely, keeping me upright and off of her withers. Great product!
