This is a nice pad. USA made and a great thickness. It definitely "molds" to your horses back and your saddle so each horse should have their own.
"A Good Buy"
I've been using this pad for three years now, and it has held up very well. It was very well priced for the service it has provided. In particular, I like the 1" thickness and would not want to buy a pad without that feature. The only negative aspect of the pad is that the contour is pretty prominant, so the end of the pad stands up off of the horse's back a bit (especially when you first buy it) if you're not riding a high-withered or swaybacked horse.
"Great Price, Great Pad!"
I've already bought 3 of these pads and am now ordering 2 more. These pads are well made, hold up wonderfully, and fit great. They give wither relief in just the right place and are contoured perfectly to fit all but eh most swaybacked horses. I don't have enough good things to say, this is my go-to saddle pad, and for the price, I can afford to do it too!
For the price this is a well-made pad. the wool is good quality, i may be purchasing another.
"Awesome Saddle Pad"
Pad is soft yet durable.....Great pad for the price! My mare and gelding both seem to like it....one is high withered and the other not so much works great on both!
I just received it 2 weeks ago. haven't used it yet, but it looks like it will work great for my gelding with high withers.
I would highly recommend this saddle pad. It fits both my high whithered horse and my young horse that has hardly any whither. The only thing I would recommend is that you buy a light sheet to go underneath so that hair doesn't stick to it.
"Happy happy happy!"
Love this pad! Nice thick wool, has a good softness to it yet it's super sturdy. Contour is perfect. Wouldn't think twice about buying another one.
I love the pad! Been using mine for over a year now, and even in the hottest weather after a long trail ride my horse's back is barely sweaty. Even my boarders love it&borrow it! Fits one of my boarder's high-withered horse fine, she's planning on buying one herself!
"Great for high withers"
This has been the BEST pad for high withered horses that I've tried, and I have 8 . Maybe some buyers aren't pulling it up into their pommel swell while saddling? But I've found that it works nicely even if you don't know to do that or forget.
"Not quite what I thought..."
This is a great pad, but it isn't quite what I was hoping for. It is contoured, but I have found that it doesn't really fit my high-necked or high-withered horses. The contoured area sits down on their necks and rubs them. Three of the four horses I have used it on did NOT like it, to the point they were thinking pretty hard about bucking. Two were gaited horses and one is a high-withered quarter-type horse. I did try it on my very low-necked appaloosa mare and she seemed to like it well enough - which I am relieved to know that I didn't purchase it in vain.
This is a great pad, especially for the price. There was a noticeable difference in my mare wearing this pad. Not that she was ouchy before but she seems even more comfortable now. Have used it for several months and plan to order more.
"What I was looking for"
I was impressed with all the positive reviews for this pad, so much so that it motivated my purchase. I am pleased to say they are correct; this pad is well formed but soft and flexible, it is thick enough to provide the shock protection needed for the toughest trail rides and to wick away moisture and heat at the same time. This is the pad I will use from now on. Thanks!
This is the best pad I've found for my horse. Fits great! Very absorbing, easy to clean and tough. I've bought some expensive pads and always return to this one. Will buy more.
Been a great saddle pad.
