PRODUCT DESCRIPTION TECHNICAL SPECS & FEATURES
 
Once you feel how much better your horse can travel under you when you tuck just one of our TAPERED FOAM SHIMS into each side of your saddle pad, you'll know why we recommend never riding without them! Our research has yielded evidence of this conclusively for more than 15 years. The shape and consistency of our soft-but-resilient closed cell FOAM SHIMS has proven to facilitate the re-development of damaged muscle as well as the efficient use of healthy tissue. The thicker portion of each SHIM provides the "lifting" power to keep saddle pressure off the working shoulders and custom-connect the horse better with the saddle where needed, while the tapered portion transitions into the horse's body so that the connection feels smooth.

The ORIGINAL TF CENTER SHIMS are excellent to fill in if atrophy or slope off the spine of the Horse is quite steep in the area where rider sits, or if sag in center is severe enough that the saddle needs further help (in addition to shoulder and center shims) to be lifted up out of the hollow so there is not pressure on the horse's loins at the back of the saddle or behind it. In addition, this SHIM can be helpful to Dressage riders who might want to enhance a more vertical orientation of their posture. As in all situations, care must be taken to not tip rider weight forward so much that added weight on the forehand is a consequence.
