The horseback shock absorber
It is a fashion trend: the use of horseback shock absorber without knowing what they are.
CAUTION! THIS IS NOT AN ORNAMENT!
The role of the saddle panels is to avoid friction of the saddle on the horse's back while keeping the rider closest to the horse.
We see too often a well balanced saddle under which we add 1 or 2 horseback shock absorber for nothing, which only serve to unbalance the rider.
Different horseback shock absorber are used to correct a problem with saddle or a horseback problem.
So you should know exactly what is wrong and choose the right horseback shock absorber to correct, not for "discorrect" a saddle that goes !
Remember that misused it only destabilize the saddle and does more harm than good.
