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.

    Roma ProTek Wither Relief Pad is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 117.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for high-withered TBs I got this for my high and skinny withered TB mare nearly a year ago after a bad infection on her withers which left a huge scar that causes it to bleed again every time I rode her. I use this pad every time I ride her and never had any more hairs rubbed off of her. The only con about this pad is that it is slightly too small for my 17.5" saddle. Hope this helps :).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Roma Pro Tek Wither Relief Ok this may be a great pad for other horses but with my horse and saddle it did not work. It actually rose way to up in the back. I did not like it and either did my horse. I cannot say it was a good pad or bad...it did not work for my horse and me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great size. I found this lifted the font of my saddle just the right amount and seemed comfortable for my horse - however I found this made my saddle slip! A lot! I put it between my saddle and a felt pad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It seems to work Bought this to use with a saddle that is too wide for our mare. She developed a sore back from ill fitting saddle.Have used it s couple of times and seems to be working. Not sure how long it will last as material doesn't look to be very strong... but so far so good

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too thick- made saddle fit improperly I purchased this to help level out the front of my saddle but it ended up being too thick and my saddle didn't fit through the withers and shoulder after.
