All Barefoot Pads come inclusive shims however these can be used as replacement or should you, in places, require addtional padding. Barefoot shims are easily trimmed with a sharp pair of scissors.
Rubber Foam Shims: Quite firm with only a slight give perfect for fine tuning saddle fitting i.e lift either at the front or rear to level saddle. In case of broad loaded shoulders or prominent withers, additional padding should be used inside the rear of the pad to keep saddle in balance. Additional padding should be placed at the front should your horse be croup high.

PU-Foam Shims: Soft and far more adaptable than Rubber Foam Shims. Great to level peak pressure and any uneveness along the horse's back such as subaceous glands.

Memory Foam Shims: Recommended for difficult saddle positions and for riders spending many hours in the saddle - even suitable for heavier riders or very sensitive saddle positions. Shims are extremely shock-absorbing, pressure distributing and pliable. Excellent to level any irregularities. Memory Foam is long lasting - the material ideally moulds to the rider and horse in use but returns to its original shape when pressure is removed. Also used in medicine e.g. for bedridden patients!
