Why We Love This


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.

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
Washing instructions
  • Wash the saddle pads regularly.
  • Wash the saddle pads by themselves, 2 or 3 at a time depending on the capacity of the washing machine.
  • Do not overload the machine. Use warm water (delicate / casual cycle) – fast spinning will make the pad wear out faster.
  • Use a good chlorine-free detergent plus a good chlorine free bleach (Oxiclean works very well).
  • For hard to remove stains, you may have to apply a stain remover before washing.
To dry:
  • Hang to dry or put in the dryer for 5-10 min. in COOL temperature (HOT AIR will melt the saddle pad).

    EcoGold Secure XC Saddle Pad is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected This pad has worked well! I bought it because I've been using some shims and this pad has helped keep those in place when I ride.
    Date published: 2018-06-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality is good, performance not good for my horse The part of pad which lays on horses back is not comfortable for my horse's back. It unnerved him. Spent alot of money and cannot use the pad.
    Date published: 2018-06-19
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Multiple Pads Falling Apart :( With limited use and very good care, the underside black material is falling apart at front edges and the back edges. Material has become very brittle and makes my horse wince when I don't use a sheepskin under it. I have 2 jump and 2 dressage pads and they are ALL doing this. I only ride 1 horse so not being used in excess. VERY UNHAPPY
    Date published: 2018-01-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look! I bought this for cross country and it's great, doesn't slip back on my saddle!
    Date published: 2017-12-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made For XC Just perfect. Stays clean and wicks moisture like no other pad out there. Horses do not get hot under the tack, really does the job.
    Date published: 2017-09-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used it for a year, my only saddlepad...jumper In the Texas heat and humidity this pad is a must. Durable and easy to clean. Perfect for the jumping, long flap (6ft male) saddle. My OTTB is a good sweater, this pad stays with us nicely.
    Date published: 2017-08-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secure for sure! Secure comes by its name honestly. If you cross-sectioned my rotund mare behind the withers she would probably be a perfect circle, and this pad keeps the saddle in place even up and down some really steep hillsides. I don't even have to crank her girth as tight as I did before, so I know she is more comfortable. And the padding is nice for her back too. I won't put any other saddle pad on her. I have only used the Secure pad half a dozen times. But I have used the Ecogold Stabilizer pads for years, and I expect the Secure to hold up as well as the Stabilizer.
    Date published: 2017-02-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat the heat I used the EcoGold XC saddle pad on a hot humid day and was amazed how cool and dry my horse was during the ride and afterward. He enjoyed the nice fit to his back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super pad One of the most expensive pads that I have bought. BUT one of the BEST worth every Penny !!!! Great pad
    Date published: 2016-04-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase I have tried a wide variety of saddle pads and wasn't successful in finding one that didnt move all around when I was galloping and jumping. The eco gold pad stays in place from start to finish!
