Wilker's Cling-On Fleece Saddle Pad
Perfect for my saddle
For reference I have a 17.5" Amerigo Close Contact , and this pad is just about a perfect fit with 1" showing around the saddle. I used it all day yesterday at a show and it didn't move a millimeter and looked great. The only other pad I've found to fit this saddle so far was a mattes sheepskin, so this Wilker's pad was MUCH kinder to my wallet.

I have a 16 1/2 CWD and have had problems finding a saddle pad that fits. I also don't like a thick fleece pad as it feels bulky under this saddle. I bought the large size pad - 17 to 171/2 and it fits perfectly, but couldn't be a fraction smaller or it wouldn't have the George Morris 1" showing :) I rode in it once just to test it. It didn't feel bulky, looks good and stayed in place. I'm just using it for the shows but will likely buy another.

Love this pad!
Great show pad, stays in place, washes up nicely, and isn't too expensive. Perfect!!

Mixed Feelings, but Overall Ok Pad
I have mixed feelings about this pad because it does look great, and it does not slip. However, it is a pain and a half to get on my horse correctly because of the non slip parts. Maybe it's because I'm not the tallest in the world, and my horse is 16.3hh, but it's a pain. At one show, I did not realize that I had it slightly crooked, and in the middle of a flat class instead of just being able to quickly adjust everything like a normal pad, I could not and I had to adjust riding a tad crooked. Yes, it is my fault for not realizing in warm up, but at the same time I am an advanced rider, and have never had this issue with a pad before. Positively though, it did look great! Maybe I am just old school and would rather stick with the pads that have the straps and no sticky stuff underneath. You decide what you like!

Nice clean look and simple design. Doesn't slip under the saddle. Starts to look worn out after its been washed a few times. Need to buy a new one after about 5 shows.

The BEST pad
These pads are wonderful, no straps to deal with and they absolutely don't slip, plus a reasonable price. I have one that's many years old and it's just starting to show some wear on the underside, top still looks great! I would not buy or recommend any other pad.
