This pad was developed to fit in the area directly behind and on either side of the wither to fill in the hollow area on high-withered horses or horses who have muscle atrophy due to being ridden in a hollow manner.  It prevents the saddle from bridging and causing pressure soreness at the scapula.  This can also help with a high-withered horse whose saddle continues to slip back.

Four layers of closed cell foam are contained within pockets that fall to either side of the horse's spine; these are secured close by strips of Velcro.  Another strip of Velcro is on the underside of the pad, down the center spine.  We supply a matching strip of Velcro loop fastening to be glued to the appropriate spot on the top of any other saddle pad.  This permits the rider to attach the Have-a-Heart to the top side of any other saddle pad you may choose.  Our system permits you to custom fit the padding to the amount of dip in your horse's back by removing a layer of cushioning.  Developing and strengthening your horse's back will assure many extra years of pain-free riding.

Bridge pad

I have only used it for one week, but so far it has made a remarkable difference. I was having trouble with the saddle being too tight in the shoulders but the bridge pad took care of the problem.


Really nice for horses with shoulder atrophy, wish I didn’t have to modify my pad.

Did not work for my horse.

Too thin

It was not thick enough to work for my horse


Looks to be good quality and shipping was ultra fast. Smaller and thinner than I though so I hope it will work. I don’t think it will be thick enough to fill in my horses top line as she’s really bad.
