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.

    Roma ProTek Wither Relief Pad is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 144.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for small amount of lift I got this half pad to hopefully help with the fit of a saddle on my shark-fin OTTB. On the ground, tacked up, this halfpad looked like it was going to do the job but as soon as I climbed on and put weight in the saddle, this half pad smooshed down quite a bit. I think for instances where a small amount of lift is needed this would work well, but for my case a Shimmable mattes half pad worked better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality foam front riser pad Product came bent in box and hasn’t straightened out completely yet but that doesn’t interfere with function. Difficult to fit deep chested, VERY NARROW Appaloosa draft cross needed a front riser for even my most gentle, narrow tree dressage saddle.
    Date published: 2020-07-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I got this because my OTTB has had problems with sore withers. This pad is affordable, yet high quality! It conforms to his back and provides enough cushion without sweating him to death

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better saddle fit! I am happy with my purchase and definitely recommend the Roma Pad. It was exactly what my mares withers needed. Affordable and good quality!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bulky and not wide enough Tried to use this front riser under a dressage saddle. Absolutely not a fit for me. My horse has a wider back and this pad didn’t even extend wide enough to be fully under my saddle, the edges of it run along the panels of my saddles. It also made my saddle bridge horribly. Didn’t work for my purposes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps my horse comfortable! My horse has massive shark fin withers. Without a wither relief pad, she gets rubs on her withers and her shoulders get pinched. This pad completely takes the pressure off and makes for a very comfortable ride. Also this pad is 15 dollars cheaper on Smartpak than the exact same pad on Dover. Team Smartpak!

    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.

    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.
