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'!).

    Acavallo Massage Gel Pad is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice - horse didnt magically become Valegro tho.. I was using a friends Equi-gel pad and wanted something of my own...figure if it was good enough for Valegro, it's certainly good enough for Huey the Draft Horse. The pad is nicely constructed, a nice weight and easy to manage. I tried it both on top of the saddle pad and underneath (directly on his back). He didnt seem to care either way, i didnt notice a difference in his way of going but I feel better using something to cushion the blow of my adult amateur booty. I used it for a full week in Ocala,with twice a day lessons, and he was never backsore or anything. Overall, I will be keeping it and I like it, and with Smartpaks return policy, if you are on the fence give it a go, it doesnt hurt to try!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from For me, just “Meh” Quality is fine, but neither my trainer nor myself noticed any discernible difference in my horse’s overall comfort or performance using this gel half pad. Meh. Will be returning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finicky mare approves! Bought this to absorb shock, protect my mare’s back and to make the saddle and pad stick like glue. I tried one a friend had about a year ago and my mare was unhappy about the addition under her saddle. I’ve literally tried everything else to help secure the saddle (and yes, she was professionally fitted). I did like the non slip Smartpak pad and Shires non slip airflow dresssge pad but I wanted something that could protect her back more. So, I purchased this little textured gel pad under the hunch that this was my golden ticket to “happy mare land” and am thrilled to say, it’s fabulous. She likes it, the saddle sticks and we’ve had no tenderness from hard workouts. It needs to be washed off every once in a while to keep its stickiness and, if the barn is cold, you may want to warm the pad up before you throw it on if your horse is sensitive (I use a heating pad). Super happy I took the risk and aquired one. Dressage Diva approved!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I recently purchased this to replace an old sheepskin half pad that I've been using for years. My pony is now riding better at nearly 24 years old than ever before with the help of this pad. She is a completely different horse under saddle! I seriously can not say enough positive things about this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with saddle shifting I have a wide backed horse with a low wither and even with a custom saddle that is properly fitted I still had issues with my saddle shifting. I use this pad directly on the horses back under my saddle pad and it keeps everything in place. It does not affect the fit of my custom saddle and adds another layer of protection for my horses back. In the summer I rinse the pad off after my ride and let dry. In the winter or if it becomes less sticky you soak in a bucket with a mild dish detergent and all the dirt comes off and it's good as new. I'm going on two years with this pad and use it every ride.
