A little snug on an extra forward flap
I purchased this in the close contact size for my jumping saddle, which has an extra long and extra forward flap. The nylon straps that hold the cover on are not really long enough to go around the flaps so it's a little difficult to get the cover on an off. The material itself is great, the underside is nice and soft and the embroidery looks great. I imagine it would fit a regular flap just fine. The straps are not velcro, so you have to slide them around the flaps. I'll probably have a velcro piece sewn onto mine to make it easier.

This cover is so great I have three!
I absolutely adore my smartpak saddle covers- they are super easy to use and fit the dressage saddles perfectly. I have ordered two more since the first one I bought and I am planning on giving one as a gift to a student soon!

love, Love, LOVE!!!
I had been eyeing this saddle cover for a while and thanks to some store credit I finally bought one and I absolutly LOVE it! I got the custome colors and they all look great, no suprises. Shipping didn't take as long as expected which was a deffinate plus. The only thing I would change is maybe adding velco to the staps, they're a little hard to get on and off. I've recommended this cover to everyone and they all love it too!

crazy in LOVE!!!
I have been dreaming of this saddle cover for over a year and thanks to some store credit I finally made the purchase! This saddle cover is wonderful all around! I wanted a saddle cover that didnt have the elastice on it but would still cover my saddle and stay on, this met all the requirements! I did the custom colors which I was a little worried about but it turned out beautifully and I got my name across the back and its just to die for! All my friends now want one and rave about how great it looks. The only thing I woud change is maybe having the nylon straps be velroable so its easier to get on and off. However Im so in love with it I dont care or mind :) If your are contemplating getting this dont even hesitate just buy! Plus Smartpak is so wonderful to work with you have nothing to worry about if you do have issues with it. Thanks SmartPak!!!

Beautiful and functional
This saddle cover is just what I was looking for. The outer material is durable, while the inside is very soft. The cover easily slips over my saddle, and I can choose to use the straps or not depending on the situation. The cover has worked very well for me both in the tack room and in the trailer.
I ordered the custom colors to match my other gear, and the colors turned out wonderfully. The personalization is large and beautiful. Well worth the wait, great product at a super price. Friends have already gotten their own!

Great saddle cover
This saddle cover looks great. It keeps my saddle dry. Best part it has a fuzzy underside, which protects It. There are straps that secure the cover. Highly recommend it.
