This anatomically shaped front riser made of therapeutic soft gel ensures the saddle fits securely on horses with less developed withers. The front riser is shock absorbing and slightly lifts the saddle to prevent wither problems. BR therapeutic soft gel has excellent anti-slip properties, does not support bacterial growth and is non-toxic. The front riser can therefore be used directly on the horse’s back. The front riser can also be used in combination with the BR soft gel pad, article 153910, the BR soft gel pad Dri-Lex, article 153911, or the BR soft gel pad Dri-Lex Sheepskin, article 153912. If necessary, the front riser can be cut to size. BR soft gel pads fit under all saddles and are machine washable at 30°C.
