We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Back on Track Saddle Pad is rated 4.740196078431373 out of 5 by 204.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horse with kissing spine recovery I have only used about four times, but I have heard great things about his product! My horse had kissing spine surgery so I needed some extra help:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this!! I am never going back to normal saddle pads. Back in track has helped my horse so much and has made a super bug difference in his performance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Purpose English Pad I wanted an extra pad to practice English in. This pad seemed like a great choice and when I could personalize for free I was sold!! Seems like my horse performs well with it. The pad is larger than I expected for all purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and I love the way it helps his back This pad has definitely helped my horse's back relax and stay loose. I tried it for a week straight then switched to my old one for a couple of rides, I can feel a difference!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Impossible to clean I bought the pad 6 weeks ago and I am very happy with the fit and feel of the pad, But the surface next to the is numbly and impossible to clean. It holds onto hair like a magnet. It just can't be removed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps reduce warm up time I have an OTTB that takes a long time to warm up (generally about half an hour before we get really nice work out of him) I've found he warms up much faster and just over all seems happier with the back on track pad. Only wish there was an easier way to get the hair off of it during shedding season!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle pad!! I bought this pad about a month ago an absolutely love it! It's so thick and durable and has helped my horse move so much better. It defiantly works!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pad I've used this on two different mares and it seems to help them loosen and warm up better. I did notice that it seemed to shed when I brushed it clean so I won't do that again. I have not washed it. I have the black dressage pad. I would love to have it in other colors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made My horses seem to really like these pads and warm up faster
Date published: 2016-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, functional, long-lasting This is the second BOT pad I've purchased and it's the only pad I use now! Generous size to fit all half pads/saddle combinations, thick but not too thick padding and great for cold backed horses like my OTTB.
Date published: 2016-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle Pad! I bought this to use on my OTTB because his back gets tight during warm up. He loves it! It takes less time to warm up his back and he is less fussy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pad I have 2 pads and they have lasted years.. I feel they keep my horses back more comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought this for my TB after we had saddle fit issues...got my saddle sorted and fitted correctly and have been using only this pad since...my horse is going great and we love this pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle pad Great saddle pad any horse. Have one for each of my horses that I've been using in the colder months. Really helps warm up their back before a ride. They definitely run a little large but I prefer that personally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buying only BOT pads from now I really love this pad. I used to use cheaper pads (I liked colorful one) and was curious a lot time to try BOT pad because many people rave about BOT pads. I bought this pad on sale ($68 shipped) and I could really see difference riding in it with my mare - I couldn't believe. The pad looks fancy, washes well and looks great. Cannot beat it. I also like the fit - some pads I had purchased were smaller under the saddle and I ike that this pad is little bigger than the cheaper pads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, my horse loves it. I'm so glad I bought this saddle pad. It exceeds all my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse goes amazing in this! I bought this for my young mare, who lives outside 24/7 in a colder winter climate. Although she has never exhibited classic cold-backed symptoms, she does tend to get very grumpy about working in the winter and never felt like she was really working well until I was almost done riding. This saddle pad has made a HUGE difference in her demeanor. I put it on by itself while I'm grooming her before riding, and she seems much more relaxed when I first get on. When riding her in this pad, she stretches further, swings through her back, and doesn't brace against the aids like she did without it. She seems generally more relaxed and much happier to work in cold weather while using this pad.I will note that it makes her more sweaty as the weather has warmed up to more reasonable temperatures, so this is not something I would use year round. It seems to affect her more on days where it's warmer than 60 degrees. But for 20-40 degree winter weather, this is a phenomenal pad!As for the pad itself - it's a very well made, sturdy, thick pad. The contour top is awesome and I won't buy pads without that feature. I got the black pad monogrammed in Tan and it looks very classy. It stays very clean and keeps its shape well. It's pricey, but I am pleased with the result because it's a gorgeous pad that has made a huge difference in the winter work ethic of my horse! In fact, she seems to enjoy this pad so much, I will likely shell out for the BoT mesh sheet for shows this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great pad!! Got this for my horse a few weeks ago. He is very sensitive overall so I thought he might just really enjoy the warmth of this pad. He warms up great in it, just like I read in the other reviews. Not only that, but I'm super pleased with the quality, weight, and fit of the pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works ! Using this helps warm my mare up faster. I will probably buy another if this one holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never use any other saddle pad. I moved to a new barn about 6 months after my horse's ligament injury and we were just starting to trot again. My horse had been having pretty chronic back soreness throughout the year and nothing seemed to fix it. Flash forward to now - thanks to this pad, bringing him back into work has been as easy as mounting up. No back soreness to speak of. The vet is super happy with how he's been coming along and I'm looking into buying the Contender II pad for my other saddle. This pad is fantastic and I'll never ride in anything else again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Back of Track product I am a big fan of Back on Track and have several products for my horses, including (now) this all-purpose and one dressage back on track pads. They really do help to increase circulation, relaxing the back while riding. What I also like, is that we haven't seen any adverse reactions (too much stimulation) with either of my horses while jumping or dressage work. They are just expensive...
Date published: 2016-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for horses that take a while to loosen up I bought this pad for my hunter who takes a while to really start moving freely from behind. His back has much more fluid movement as soon as we start working. Would definitely recommend for any horse that tends to start out stiff through the back.
Date published: 2016-01-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed pad I have a white Back on Track dressage pad and just bought a black one. They fit well, are sized appropriately, are thick but not bulky. My horse goes well in this pad in the cooler weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on Track Saddle Pad I made this purchase for my granddaughter at her request.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this pad Bought this pad originally for my horse with kissing spine who used to warm so slow and would start so stiff and it helped him a ton and now use it on everything!My only problem is the drop on my 16.5 saddle with shorter flaps it hangs awkwardy low and if I don`t put it on right it ends up the way of my leg
Date published: 2015-11-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this pad! After using this pad for only a few days it became evident that my horse loved this pad and that it helped the fit of his saddle. He has been hesitant to canter after starting back in training for almost 60 days. Now he is offering the canter without hesitancy. It would appear he is just way more comfortable. So glad I ordered this pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on track pad Just bought my second pad Two week ago had my other for 3 year and still use on another horse love them keeps my horse so he get soar and warm up better thanks smart pak

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Pad I love back on track products and this dressage pad is exactly what i wanted. Looks great and my horse seems more comfortable when we use it.
Date published: 2015-10-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth it! My horse is historically cold-backed so I started using the BOT products earlier this year. I was using the back cover and finally decided to spring for the saddle pad. I'm SO glad I did; my horse warms up faster and his back is definitely freer when I use it! I guess I will be retiring all my saddle pads and stocking up on these. I also use a Thinline half pad, so I may have to try their combo pad, too. It is big enough to fit well under my 17.5" event saddle with forward flaps, which really surprised me! It might be really big on a more average size saddle with straighter flaps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice quality but could be longer This saddle pad is constructed beautifully and the monogramming I got on my BOT saddle pad looks really good. I do suggest for the monogramming don't use the royal blue on black it is just a little too dark to see the monogramming easily. My only complaint is the saddle pad could be a little longer. I have a 18.5" close contact saddle just for over fence work and my saddle barely fits on the pad that is my only complaint. I only buy BOT saddle pads for my horse who was recently diagnosed with kissing spine so keeping his back happy is at the fore front of my mind.
