Comfort Fleece Correction Pad
Less than impressed
Bought this pad for a mare that needs a lift in the front of her saddle. I took all 3 shims out and was able to squish them all the way down with my fingers. I can't imagine it having any support if I sat on it!! I do not see how this pad would truely correct a poor fitting saddle. Sheepskin was of poor quality for the price. It looked more like fleece and was not very dense. Needless to say it was returned and I exchanged it for the Thinline version. I have always had good luck with Thinline products.

An Affordable Alternative
Our chiropractor recommended a half pad with shims to improve the fit of my saddle for my new greenie. A friend let me borrow hers (the higher end, expensive brand), but I decided to buy this pad and give it a try. It offered my horse the same relief that the expensive brand did. Comparing the pads side by side, you wouldn't know the difference. The chiropractor had a follow up appointment with my horse and said the pad made all the difference! No more pain in his back! I am very happy with this purchase.

I needed a mattes front lift pad but they are so expensive so read reviews here about this one and took a chance. It works. I can't comment on durability as I just got it. much less expensive than other brands

Nice pad but too small
I was looking for a cheaper alternative to the Mattes correction pad and thought this could work. Loved the open spine channel and the memory foam inserts. There were only 3 shims per pocket instead of the 4 shims per pocket stated in the description. Not a big deal for me. But the biggest issue I had was that it wasn't big enough for my 18" dressage saddle. It wasn't long enough nor wide enough for the panels to sit completely on the pad. Sadly, I returned it. But it would work for a smaller saddle.

Great Correction Pad
These correction pads are way cheaper than Mattes & great quality. They do run a bit small, so if you have a 17.5+ saddle, get the large; I don't think they would fit a much larger saddle.

This has been an absolutely GREAT purchase! My mare needed just a bit of rear riser help, and this pad has fit the bill and then some. The pad is extremely well made, and you can tell it is outstanding quality. Every bit as good as it's twice as expensive competitor. Washes well, and is super cushiony. This has really helped our saddle fit, and my mare is so much more loose and happy in her back now. She used to have issues with some back soreness, but NONE since buying this. (She was ridden in a ThinLine pad previously, and it just doesn't hold a candle to the shock absorption of this pad.) I can't say enough good about this pad, and we look forward to using it for years.
