Saddle Pads are placed under the saddle on the horse’s back for providing cushioning. Some saddle pads are also meant to be used as correction pads for compensating for a saddle that does not fit perfectly. One of the most notable half pads used within both the jumper and hunter rings is the Ogilvy Half Pad. The pad is made from memory foam which conforms to the shape of the horse’s back while providing adequate cushioning.
