Square saddle pads do not fit a horse's back. Getting the pad to conform to the horses's anatomy takes "break-in" and still never really gives adequate protection against pressure points. Most over-cinching is caused by a poor fit of the saddle pad for which many people compensate by adding a second pad. The pre-formed Contoured Saddle Pad already fits the contour of your horse's back. It takes practically no break-in, and it helps eliminate slippage without over-cinching.
