Designed to lift front of the saddle off a broad-shouldered and well muscled Horse's working shoulders. The ½ TF FOAM SHIMS help to keep excess weight off the horse's forehand, essential for healthy travel.
The ORIGINAL TF CENTER SHIMS support the long back muscle if that muscle is weak, flat, damaged or sagging in the center area of the horse's back. It connects the saddle with the horse's body so that "bridging" of the saddle (contact pressure at the front and back of the horse's body without connection in the lower center area) is not excessive. Quite often, the CENTER SHIMS are used in combination with the SHOULDER SHIM.
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! 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.
A must have in every tackroom. The ORIGINAL TF SHOULDER SHIMS are designed to lift front of the saddle off your Horse's working shoulders.
