Back on Track Saddle Pad
Only pad I will ever use!
I normally don't believe in these things. However, I bought the Contender II pad because it was pretty and looked really durable. I really noticed a difference this pad made when I finally had to wash it and was using a normal pad in the meantime. This pad helps my horse loosen and warm up his back. Plus, it's durable and washes up good as new. I won't be using any other pad from now on!

Really delivers on all its promises. Horse is more comfortable, supple, flexible from start.

I purchased this pad for my young horse. We had not been successful in getting him properly fitted in his saddle. That, plus being tense and high strung, led to a very tight back. The first time I used this pad, I could tell a difference. Warm up time was shortened considerably. He is much happier and willing to move forward more freely. Nothing takes the place of good training and developing the proper musculature but this pad definitely makes to job easier!

I purchased this pad about a month ago, fit is great.

Nice pad, high quality, good size
I have a lease mare that is older, and a bit stiff. She does heat up a bit faster with this pad. I think it does help warm up for working more quickly. That said, I haven't noted any 'amazing' changes in her normally great mentality either way.
It's a great size, plenty of clearance for my saddle. It is good quality material and stitching. It is a thicker pad, but not bulky. The girth straps are in a correct position and the billet straps are velcro (so easy to attach and remove). Overall, very happy with this purchase.

I have had and used this pad for about 3 months now. My once cranky mare when I would girth up the saddle, now stands like nothing is fazing her. The pad has made such a difference when saddling and riding. When warming up, she is so much looser and free moving then ever before. This pad is making such a huge difference in my mare's attitude. Soreness in her back is minimal as a result, hence the OOH AHH! A suggestion to keep it white longer: I sprayed the outside of the pad with a fabricate protectant. It is staying clean and white. Love this pad!
