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'!).

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.

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 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    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.

    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

    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad This pad is amazing. Stays in place, padding thin, but dense and comfortable for the horse, and does not retain sweat, so never wet. It is expensive, but so far lasting very well.
