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'!).

Why We Love This

Roma's ProTek Wither Relief Pad has been a staple in every barn for over 20 years!  Offers ultra-thin and lightweight protection for your horse's back.  Molded to fit high up into the saddle channel to give protective cushioning while allowing the spine and withers to be free of pressure.

Favorite Features

  • Available in either lift front or lift back depending on your saddle fitting needs
  • Front lift provides 1/2" lift in front while continuing to support the full length of the saddle
  • Back lift provides 1/2" lift to balance the back of the saddle while avoiding pressure to the withers
  • Closed cell foam that won't absorb moisture
  • Fits all styles of saddles

    Roma ProTek Wither Relief Pad is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 102.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pad! I bought this pad because my saddle didn't fit properly. My Morab gelding is getting older and starting to get a bit of a dip in his back! The wither relief was perfect. I wish the back lift was a bit higher but that is specific to my problem. It was the perfect solution for me since I couldn't justify the purchase of a new saddle at this time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Raises the saddle off the withers quite a lot without adding too much bulk under the saddle. Rescue thoroughbred has atrophied muscle and the Mt. Everest of withers, so was worried that it wouldn't raise the saddle enough, but it did. Molding of the plastic isn't great, with messy seams, but is good value for money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job I bought this as a temporary fix to help my current saddle fit my horse better until our new dreamboat saddle arrived. A big help to him--he would actually give me a sitting trot; before the rear panels would bump him in the back, driving him forward. Great product and reasonably priced. Will definitely be keeping for my tack room even once I sell my old saddle!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does Its Job This is a good, basic wither relief pad at a very reasonable price. The foam seems to get dirty somewhat easily and tends to dent, but is much cheaper than the pads with removable shims. My only complaint is that the foam is very thick at the withers - I would have liked it a little thinner but my guess is it will thin out a bit with time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice pad I like how the half pad cushions the horse's back without adding bulk. The lift back puts the saddle in a better position. I bought white and would definitely buy this again.
