Bayou West's same concept as the contoured pad with the added protection of a neoprene inset. This allows the Dee rings of the saddle rigging to fit naturally and securely while lightening the horse's load due to the neoprene not extending all the way across the pad. The rider benefits from this pad's design though a better feel and closer contact from his legs to the horse's barrel. Sewn on wear leathers, wither and spine for added durability. Grey pad measures 31" x 32" and is 1-1/8" thick.
