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 EcoGold Secure XC Saddle Pad is the #1 saddle pad used by top event riders!

Improve your safety and protection of your horse with the Secure™ XC saddle pad. This saddle pad is the choice of Phillip Dutton, Buck Davidson, Karen O’Connor, Boyd Martin and many more to keep their saddle completely secure. No slipping, no sliding, even in the worst conditions! The 100% breathable high-density foam in the seat area protects the horse's back from impact without adding extra bulk. The ergonomic shape and ultra-thin flaps (there’s no padding on the flaps), provides the rider with a more stable riding position. The high-tech 100% breathable materials quickly evaporate the moisture away, keeping the horse cool and dry, even on the hottest days. 21" (spine)  x 19" (drop)

    EcoGold Secure XC Saddle Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pads Ever! I have 3 Ecogold pads, 2 XC and 1 Dressage and they are by far the best pads I have ever used! I love how breathable and confortable they are for my horses and the no slip helps so much since a lot of my horses saddles slip! Best pads ever and will definitely be buying more in the future!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pad! I just purchased my second XC pad since after over two years of frequent use the first one seemed to start to become a bit less "spongy". It also started to be more grey and had some stains, but other than that no wear and tear or lose seems etc. and I will continue to use it. It has a great fit under my XC saddle and seems to be very comfortable for the horse as it also prevents sweat built up. It does not move or bunch up under the saddle and the saddle never slipped (even though on that horse the saddle never slips whatever pad you use). It washes really well, you pull it out of the washer, dry it and it is ready to go again. It is completely out of "modern" materials which work perfect for this purpose. I will buy it again and again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product. Other than the price, which I think is a little excessive, this pad is fantastic. Really holds you saddle in place when it matters even on horses without withers. A must have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad I purchased this pad because one of my mares has a super round back and tiny withers making it very hard to keep a saddle in place. This pad has done the trick! I never feel the saddle moving around under me anymore and even more remarkable, it doesn't move forward on her anymore either. This was pricey, but worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised This is an excellent pad, the non-skid surface ensures that it stays in place even on the longest gallops over rough terrain. There is a thin layer of padding on the upper portion and the sides have no padding at all, allowing it to work very well with my custom fit saddle. I highly recommend this pad to anyone who had a big mover with a tendency to push pads back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely secure, forget the breast plate! I have been looking for a form fitting pad for cross country. I didn't like this price tag, but after reading other reviews, I had to try it. Used it for the first time yesterday at a 3 phase and LOVED it. There is a lot of cushening on the spine and the non stick material keeps everything in place.I have a Courbette Vision saddle that is really long and used to get extra long pads that would still bunch up. This one couldn't fit any better. It's an 18" and this would fit any xc or close contact saddle.The grip material on the underside is just like the stuff that keeps carpets from slipping. It doesn't pinch the horse's skin at all though.Loved this and will use it frequently.In my opinion, it's better to spend more money and get what you want than having 5 mediocre pads laying around that don't work right and don't make you happy.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
