I worked for a reined cow horse trainer this winter and they used these pads all the time. I got one for my QT horse and it fits great. Between the tree (semi-qt bars) on my wade saddle and this pad I haven't found a better match. My 3yr and the colts I start all sweat evenly with these pads, Im going to try it with two other saddles and see they pair, but i will most likely be ordering one or two more. Not fancy but good for cowboy work, and the girlfriends trail horse.
I've used this pad twice- the first ride was only 30 minutes and was fine. our second ride was 3 hours and rubbed my TB raw on the top of his left hind quarter.....in a really weird place. Not sure what I'll do to fix the issue.
