This is the smaller, version of the 'Large' 1/4 inch JB Pad, that is suitable for use under the BALANCE Robin & Wren saddles and sometimes under the shortest versions of other BALANCE Models.
BALANCE Large ¼ inch JB Pad for Junior Saddles
This Large ¼" (6.5mm) version of the single layer Pony JB pad covers a larger area than the standard Pony sized ¼" JB. Because of this, it will have more of an influence on the front to back balance of the saddle, by creating more of a lift than the standard ¼" (6.5mm) version.
It is a useful pad for ponies who have a lack of muscle that extends from behind the shoulder to the middle of the saddle. Combining with either a ½" or ¼" JB standard Pony JB pad in a layered arrangement in order to create a graduated (stepped) lift under the front of the saddle, up to ¾" (19mm).
The pad is made with the hook side of a hook/loop fastening system on the underside to attach to one of the Pony sized Wool-Fleece pads and/or a Pony sized Base Pad, and the loop (soft) side of the hook/loop fastening on top to make it easy to layer with another JB Pad, if necessary. Proportioned to work with the BALANCE Junior saddles as listed above, this
Pony Large JB pad is also suitable for use under:
English saddles in children's sizes (16½" and smaller).
Treeless saddles in children's sizes.
Bareback pads in children's sizes.
The dimensions of this pad are shown below.
A -- B = 7½" (19cm)
C -- D = 9" (23cm)
