Korrector™ The Air Saddle Pad – Styles & Sizes

Korrector™ Specification

English Pads are made from synthetic leather and Western Pads are made of wool felt. The spine on all the styles of pads are cut for a high wither. Apart from Western, all pads are fitted with a Gullet Locking Plate™ and front ties for secure positioning and excellent clearance.

All Korrector™ pads and bags are sold together and can be purchased here. Replacement or additional items may be purchased separately. First Thought Equine Ltd reserves the right to make alterations/improvements to the products shown without prior notice. All information shown was correct at the time of going to press.

Step 1 – Select length of the pad

Sizes for English styles of saddle are as follows…

  • Medium   For saddles with a seat size of 16.5″ -17.5″.
  • Large       For saddles with a seat size of 17.5″ up wards.

Sizes for Western styles of saddle are as follows…

  • Medium   For Reining type saddles with a bar length of around 23″.
  • Large       For Roper/Working type saddles with a bar length of around 26″.

Step 2 – Select Rear Bag Width (English only)

English saddles vary in the width of the seat and therefore the panel.  To ensure you choose the right Korrector™ for your saddle take the following measurement across the widest part of the saddle.


If the measurement is 11″ (28cm) or less you require a Korrector™ with a 140 code. It will have this type of bag, long and narrow…


If the measurement is 11.5″ (29.5) or more you require a pad with a 165 code. It will have this type of bag, 1″ (2.5cm) wider than the 140 above…


Pads come in the following styles…

  • 140 & 165 Pad
  • Western two sizes

The sizes available are made for the most popular styles of saddle i.e. near all dressage saddles have a width measurement that will require a 165 bag type so that is what we make!  However, if your dressage saddle measured up for a 140 then we suggest you use the 140 Korrector™ Pad instead of a cloth or numnah.

We hope all is clear. If you are unsure then email us with your query [email protected]
