As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The CoolMax ProSeries Pads are designed to keep your horse cool and comfortable under the saddle. The moisture-wicking properties of the CoolMax fabric on the underside of the pad, combined with the diamond quilting, provide cool comfort that is second to none! Reinforced wither relief, billet straps and girth loops.  Measurements: 23” spine with 22” drop.

    Lettia Coolmax ProSeries Dressage Pad is rated 4.7826 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! I recently purchased this pad and could not be happier. It is the perfect medium weight, keeps my horse cool and wicks away moisture, and is a great fit. My horse is big bodied and I often have a hard time finding pads that have enough length but this is perfect. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle pad! I live in Tucson, AZ = very hot summers. I wanted a medium thickness pad with wicking properties that would fit my horse's wide and high withers, stay in place, and stand up to repeated use and washings.The Lettia Coolmax meets all my requirements. The wicking definitely keeps my mare's back drier. I bought the white one, and it stays clean and bright with good care. My practice is to brush the underside off with a stiff brush after we finish our rides to keep the hair and grime from accumulating, and I wash the pad every three-five uses, depending. To wash, I put a small amount of liquid dish soap in a big bucket of water, spray the pad with a hose, pour some of the soapy water on the pad, brush with stiff brush then rinse very thoroughly and line-dry. The pad is standing up to the use and washings, and still looks bright, white and new with minimal wear.I recommend this pad, and will buy more for extras!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice pad! I love that you can customize it as your horse changes shape. It's nice to use this system in a single pad as well. It is really well made, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dressage Pad Very nice pad. I don't know how it will stand up over time, since I have not used it yet. I decided to go with the logo on the side, and thnk they did a really good job--very profesionally done. I like that SmartPak sends a return address label if you are not satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely pad with great wicking properties Whenever I see a purple dressage pad, I feel compelled to buy it (purple and yellow are my colors). I have not regretted purchasing this pad in the least! I love that it's cut and padded for high withers, and the wicking properties are outstanding! It was great to use this pad in the summer and know it was helping to keep my horses cool. I was very surprised when I saw how wet it got on the top side of the pad! The CoolMax fabric really does work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Dressage Pad Lettia coolmax pads of any type are always my favorite. Especially with the heat and humidity we've had in the South lately. Lettia pads have held up very well with repeated washings, and Smart Pak does a great job on the embroidery! This pad is a great thickness, not too much to use an additional thin type pad, although it's not a baby pad and would be too thick to use with a fleece or sheepskin half pad at least for my horse and saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pad! I love Lettia pads, esp the CoolMax ones. They wash well, keep my horse drier and fit fantastically, esp in the withers. HIGHLY recommend for both Dressage & AP.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pad! I purchased this pad and was extremely impressed with the quality- excellent weight, very breathable, fit perfect, love the raised wither and the color was very deep and vibrant. I also added on the monogram and was impressed with the quality of that as well!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like the cool max feature, but... I really like the Cool Max fabric that really draws the sweat through the thickness of the pad away from the body. I can see such a difference compared to the lack of sweat on top of my other pads after a workout. I also like the fact that the pad is thinner than my Classic III pads since I like to use a wool fleece pad and don't want any extra bulk. However, after only a few washings (and I wash nearly after each use), the fabric along the piping has pulled through the stitching and will be fraying soon. And the pad also tends to want to curl up in the corners so I wish it were a bit more substantial like my thin Passier pad or my thicker Classic III pads. Also the fabric appears to be pilling from wear already from my legs. This pad will definitely not hold up the way my Passier or Classic III pads have been holding up for years. I just wish they all came with the Cool Max lining! One more thing, the piping trim ends on a visible edge of the pad, not in an obscure area near the billet loops as my other pads do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Saddle pad This saddle pad is a great buy. It is a lovely color, perfect size for my dressage saddle, and wicks away moisture very well. A ittle more then I prefer to spend, but definately worth it. Totally recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Saddle Pad! I have nothing but good things to say about Lettia in general, but these saddles pads are great. They absorb sweat well, they stay in place well and you can wash them over and over without any sign of wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad!! Bought this pad (actually 2 of them - one white and one black) to use for showing - the fit was great and the horses seemed to be less sweaty underneath than they usually are -- and they cleaned up great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME pad This is my new favorite pad! I am ordering two more right now. Pulls moisture away from my horse's back and just the right thickness. Really nice, high quality pad...worth the money!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Nice Looking Pad, But... This pad looks lovely, and the coolmax works well, but it is so thin. This makes it wonderful, if close contact is what you are after, but not the best for a sensitive horse (even with a Mattes half pad on top). I miss the thicker, cushier Lettia Coolmax pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the ultimate show pad This pad is perfect for hot show days. The CoolMax keeps my horses back cooler and I appreciate the piping to add a polished look. I have two: one for morning, one for afternoon, hang them outside at the end of the day and they are ready to go again the next day.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for horses with withers! I got this pad based on all of the great reviews here and the Horse Journal recommendation. However, I wish someone had warned me that this pad is not for horses with reasonably prominent withers. I think the photo here may be misleading or perhaps the pad I got is defective, because this pad is very flat over the withers. It is PADDED over the withers but that makes no difference when it is jammed down on them as it's just not shaped for withers, so that padding just grinds on my gelding's withers. The pad won't stay up off his withers no matter what I do or how many times I try to push it into the channel of the pommel, and the lack of shaping also causes the pad to bunch and buckle over his back. This pad is simply designed for more mutton-withered horses.Also, my saddle is 17.5" and I use it with a Mattes correction pad and I was surprised at how small this saddle pad is--my Mattes correction pad hangs over the back of it.Overall, this is the most expensive non-sheepskin saddle pad I own but also my least favorite. I have used other Lettia saddle pads in the past and liked them, but they were much more generously cut and shaped anatomically. Don't be fooled by the product photo here--this pad is not shaped for prominent withers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle Pad I bought this saddle pad for my 16 hand light grey warmblood. We both love it! It isn't too thick, so it doesn't interfere with my custom saddle fit. But it is soft & squishy & doesn't slip! I'm ready to buy a few more. The black is gorgeous on grey colored horses! This will be my saddle pad of choice for awhile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Everyday Pad Great fitting pad for my two short-backed dressage Arabians! I got these pads in the plum color which is much more fun than white or black.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Beautiful quality pad. Has held up to the immense torment while breaking my 16.2 hh'r! Wicks away sweat! The blue sides gets dirty quickly, but washes up nicely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works as promised I've been very pleased with with wicking properties of this pad. On hot days, I've been able to see the moisture that has been pulled to the surface of the pad when we're done working. I ride in an 18 inch saddle with a Mattes correction pad underneath, and this pad is barely long enough to fit underneath it. I also had some trouble with the edges curling either in or out when I initally was using the pad. I think this may be related to the sizing of the pad related to my horse. It has improved slightly with use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality pad, AND economical! Not only did this pad fit well, but really did what it descibed it would do...keep the horse cool, and wick away moisture. It was fabulous. I hosed off the underside after riding, and it looked like brand new. I have not actually washed it yet, so hopefully it will continue to be as impressive, after washing, as it is now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lettia Cool Max Pro series I have been using the Lettia pads for years now. They wear great and your horse stays cooler. The quilting on the pro series is perfect for show.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pad I have just purchased a second coolmax pad recently. I like how they fit and look under my dressage saddle. My horse seems to stay cool under saddle even in 90+ weather. The pad dries fast between uses and cleans up great. It is a good investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Saddle Pad I bought this pad in the plum color and it is absolutely gorgeous. It is a great size, not so huge like some dressage pads, and it seems to keep my horse cooler in the hot FL sun.
