"Great Pad - but you must be smarter than the pad to use it!"
This pad has doubled in price since I purchased mine but I absolutely love the way it protects my horse. I don't use any other pad! The reviewers that say it slips need to understand that this pad is reversible!!! That means that you can either put the black slippery side down next to the horse or the grey material side next to the horse. I put the black side up facing my saddle and the grey absorbent side down facing the horse. (Sigh - some folks just need a little help sometimes!)
"I love mine"
I really like mine, I don't have any problem with it moving... it's great protection for my horse and not to thick like most others.
After only an hour of riding, this pad is all over the place! Will not stay put. I don't even use it anymore because of the trouble it causes.
"Not so sure"
My horses work hard. We either gather cattle all day in mountain canyons or trail ride for 30 miles a day. So I purchased what looked to be the best to protect my horse. The pad works very well, if I could only keep it under my saddle. I cannot ride more than 5 miles when the pad works it way out from underneath the saddle; either off the right side or the back. Re-saddle, less than 5 miles and resaddle again. I have tried this pad with different blankets as well as by itself. Less than 5 miles, resaddle!
