2 Best Saddle Pad For Swayback Horses

Best Saddle Pad For Swayback Horses

Let’s check out some of the best saddle pads for swayback horses that helped my old boy, Roger.

2 years ago, my chubby swaybacked 12H pony got chubbier and I began to look for a way to make his saddle stay put much better. Last month, I finally found two products that works after several trial and errors.

These two products are what I am going to share with you.

Best Saddle Pad For Swayback Horse

  • Reinsman Tacky Too Contour Swayback Square 30 x 30 x 3/4in Pad

The Reinsman Tacky Too Contour is constructed to assist in fitting a saddle to a horse who has issues bridging across their back due to the lower than a typical curve.

A swaybacked horse can be short-coupled, young and underdeveloped, or an older horse.

You can fit in the gap between the horse’s back saddle with this pad to create a better fit and level the saddle from front to rear in all voids.


The material of this pad is a non-slip material that allows for easy ventilation, is deceptively tough, and is long-lasting which helps reduce saddle roll and sore backs.

Engineered for maximum back relief, this saddle will correct and relieve your horse’s bad back.

Best Saddle Pad For Swayback Horses

Cashel Swayback English Cushion Pad

This saddle pad worked better than any gel pad, yoga knee pads that I have bought in the past.

However, a little setback is that it is huge.

I got it to stay in place by strapping my bottom pad over it, then tightening the girth – that makes it stay still even on hills.

In the end, I am rating this saddle pad 4 stars for utility; minus 1 for sheer ugliness and bulkiness.
