Why We Love This

Roma's ProTek Wither Relief Pad has been a staple in every barn for over 20 years! Molded to fit high up into the saddle channel to give your horse comfortable cushioning while allowing the spine and withers to be free of pressure, it offers ultra-thin and lightweight protection for your horse's back. The closed cell foam material won’t absorb moisture, making it easy to keep clean. Finally, it’s available in either lift front or lift back to suit your saddle and your horse’s build. The front lift provides 1/2” lift in front while continuing to support the full length of the saddle while the back lift provides 1/2” lift to balance the back of the saddle while avoiding pressure to the withers. 

Made in the USA.

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing summer saddle pad this saddle pad is a lifesaver for the summer because 1 it wicks away mosisture 2. it's cute

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect riding ad My horse is downhill. This pad puts me in the perfect position in the saddle. I will not ride without it.
    Date published: 2019-11-25
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for slight adjustment, not for the shark-finn I ordered this pad to hopefully make my saddle fit my shark-finned TB better. The thickness seemed right, and I was really excited that I could get a pad that had a front-only rise. I was hoping this would work so that I didn't have to spend $200+ on a shimmable half pad. When I this on my horse and tacked up, this looked like it worked! The saddle rose up off of his withers and sat more "level". I eagerly went out and hopped on, only to notice halfway into my workout that the foam had squashed down and the saddle was again riding on his withers. Ultimately, this didn't work for us but I think this would be great for someone who needs a minor adjustment. Just be aware that the pad does squash down quite a bit, so I would think that this would work perfectly if you put it on and it made the saddle sat a little up-hill without weight in the saddle. I think once you put weight in the saddle and it squashed down, it would fit perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for swayback horses My new lease horse is a lot narrower than my other horse and he got a wither rub from my saddle sitting on his wither. i got this because he has the classic tb build and sloped shoulder and my saddle needed more padding in the front to rise my saddle up. This does the job AMAZINGLY! Cheap, light, seems durable. Great quality product for a great price.
    Date published: 2019-07-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this to lift the back of the saddle slightly on my high withered horse. Very easy to use and fit well. Durable and easy to brush off.
    Date published: 2019-06-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective pad These pads are very discreet but are great for raising the cantle on horses with high withers and balancing everything out.
    Date published: 2019-05-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it’s suppose too. I bought this to get the saddle off my shark finned TB withers and it does exactly that. Other half pads that you can shim compressed to much and the saddle still sat on her withers.
    Date published: 2019-05-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just as I intended I bought this to put a little rise in the back of my dressage saddle. It's very lightweight foam-type material so I'm not sure how long it will last but for now, it works perfectly.
    Date published: 2018-09-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fills the requirements This pad set the front clearence of my western saddle higher for a high withered gaited horse. It's very light weight and doesn't slip when used between a 3/4" felt pad and a flex tree saddle. I feel better about going down hills without putting any pressure on the withers.
    Date published: 2018-05-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good front padding Looks very durable. Haven't ridden with it yet but should be awesome to keep my saddle front from falling down
