Some Mules, Walking Horse and standardbreds have a very exposed backbone. If the back is A-Shape and the spinous process stick up you need a full channel the STOPS PINCHING AND RUBBING on the SPINE. THE ELASTIC WEBBING CONNECTOR AT THE FRONT KEEPS THE THICK PAD FROM PINCHING THE WITHERS. WITHOUT THOSE 3 LAYERS OF ELASTIC IT WOULD PINCH LIKE ANY OTHER THICK PAD. THE OPEN CHANNEL IS 3 INCHES WIDE. Due to the enter channel wanting to close when you put it on your animal, the channel is hand-cut at an angle to retain that width while on your animal. THIS PAD IS 3/4 inch THICK + the 1/2" THICK LINER PAD. That thickness is what keeps the saddle above the spine. CALL LEN TO ORDER A SQUARE VERSION OF THIS PAD. 816 806 4742
