Tucker’s Full Skirt APEX Pad is designed specifically to fit our Tucker equitation saddle shape found on our 249 and T49 and provide your horse maximum back protection. Made from 100% steam-pressed wool - with absolutely NO FILLERS - is the best you can get and ideal for long rides. Steam pressed wool offers excellent shock absorption for those extra-long hours in the saddle. Wool is the only material in the world naturally grown by mammals to regulate their body temperature in all weathers and climates. It decreases moisture on the inside by transferring it to the outside where it can be evaporated.

Futurity front wither relief so it will not bind your horse's withers. The contoured back is reinforced with an oil tan spine to create a natural fit against the horse's back and result in less slippage. Durable oil tanned wear leathers resist cracking while the dropped rigging pad design covers and protects your horse against rubbing from the rigging dee.

Choose from three bottoms based upon your riding preference and horse's needs.

  • WOOL: traditional bottom with natural fibers against your horse's back for tried-and-true protection
  • TACKY-TOO®: soft, non-slip material that is ventilated, pressure distributing, shock-absorbing, deceptively tough and durable, won't pull hairs, and is easy to clean
  • FLEECE: 100% wool fleece bottom provides soft, plush comfort that is ideal for a horse with sensitive skin

*Ideal for the following (but not limited to) Tucker saddles: 249, T49

How do you know which length to choose?

Take the skirt length of your saddle and add 4” to get the desired length of pad. For our short-backed equine friends, just add 2”.

Will 3/4" wool be thick enough for long rides?

If your saddle fits your horse well and you don’t need any type of correctional padding, then we recommend a 3/4” wool felt pad because we have found after years of saddle fitting anything thicker can alter your saddle fit. When you use more padding than what is necessary, it can out pad a great fitting saddle and create pressure points or cause the saddle to roll because the saddle is higher off the horse.
