Medallion High Profile Fleece Pad
Fleecy on both sides, thick and fluffy, great price, what's not to like?

Frankly a bit disappointed with this pad, but in such need of one, and it's doing it's job, so keeping it. The fabric is frankly bristly, rather than soft - reminds me almost of some kind of scrubbing material. It is also thinner than I anticipated. But it's keeping its shape, and was a good fit for my saddle. I do, however, have it over another quilted pad. A fleece pad holds my saddle in place well - my TB, although tall, is rather fine boned and narrow.
I'm a re-rider, and have been dismayed by the prices of saddle pads, when years ago we used to have many soft synthetic fleece pads that were reasonably priced, and could be easily tossed in the wash, and they'd last forever. Have already returned a high priced sheepskin pad that fell apart in 6 months and felt lined almost with cardboard.
Hopefully after this one is washed, it will soften up a bit. Suppose it makes no difference to my horse, but kind of gives me the willies handling it!

I have an AP saddle with longer flaps, and it fits perfectly! I have never liked a pad this much!

Note to self... when your kid gets a bigger saddle must buy new pads :)

So far the pad has held up well. I have a large saddle and this pad works well with it.

Good for a QH?
I recently purchased a Union Hill fleece pad that I returned because it didnt fit my horse or saddle. I've heard great things about medallion pads, but they only carry high profile and lift back here. Does the high profile work like a front-lift? thanks!
