The Prolite saddle stay pad is a very lightweight pad approx only 1/4 thick, that is used to help prevent movement of the saddle on the horses back. It is ideal for round barreled horses (particularly cob types that often have little or no wither either) to prevent the saddle slipping round the horse. This anti slip saddle pad can also be used to help prevent movement of the saddle forward or backwards on lean or young horses. Ideally the Prolite saddle stay pad should be used on its own for maximum effect. This anti slip pad helps to absorb shock and does not alter the fit of the saddle to any great degree like similar thicker pads.
