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 Stabilizer™ Dressage saddle pad is made with 100% breathable fabrics which keep the saddle pad stable and protect the horse's back from impact.  The EcoGold Stabilizer™ Pad reduces the need for a breast-plate or extra-tightening of the girth, which improves the horse's comfort and performance.

Favorite Features

  • 100% breathable material which holds the saddle in place
  • Air knit quickly evaporates perspiration helping to keep the horse cool and comfortable
  • Lycra underside is a soft high-tech fabric preventing rubs on the withers
  • Cushion-hold underside aids in keeping the saddle pad in place, absorbing impact, and eliminating pressure points
  • Machine washable!

Made in Canada

    EcoGold Stabilizer™ Dressage Pad is rated 4.470588235294118 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Saddle Pad This is a really attractive pad. I really like the super thin wither material that does not narrow the gullet when it is pulled up to prevent wither pressure and does not change the saddle fit in any way. The non-slip material helps keep the saddle in place however the non slip material rip away from the center binding in the area of about 2 inches on both sides just behind the withers. I guess I had not pulled it up enough to prevent pressure on the pad from the saddle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product not enough padding Love Ecogold products but I was not able to see this pad in person. I couldnt figure out what pad to buy that would have enough padding for my horse rehabing from a kissing spine and spine arthritis diagnosis this winter. Needless to say this pad is overall great but doesnt have enough padding in the seat area to protect my horses spine even with a half pad. I will have to buy the Secure and see what that is like. Materials and construction is great though!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from replaced all my pads and add-ons bought this for $25 in the clearance section and loved it so much bought another one at full price. Wanted black as the white does not wash very well...adequate. Drying time is bit long too so if you love these get two. Wish Smartpak carried black as I had to order direct to get the black. Per the horse communicator my horse loved the soft squishy feel and reported it was very comfortable...hence now have 3 of these pads. The best part is it replaced all of the mattes pads, thinline pads, etc and the padding is wide enough not to cause any pressure points.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from works well for one season This pad is a life-saver for hard-to-fit horses for whom the saddle just does not want to stay in place. However, the non-slip properties diminish over time even when washed according to manufacturer's instructions. (And they are not kidding about not using bleach! That instantaneously ruins all non-slip.) After a summer of every day use on a single horse (and washing after every 3 or 4 uses), it's time to replace the pad. I think that the dust/grime gradually builds up which ruins the stickiness. I suspect that oil-based fly sprays may hasten this. Rather pricey to be replacing this pad, but I can't ride this particular horse without one. This will be my third repeat buy.I will also try the cheaper 'stabilizer' dressage pad from a different brand that Smartpak sells. As an aside, I wish they would make a stabilizer pad in black for everyday schooling!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Second review after one year of use I have ridden in this pad now for one year. For the first 6 months or so, the saddle did not roll during riding, or with mounting. For some unknown reason to me this pad has lost all of its stick on the underside of the pad. It had solved my saddle roll in the beginning,but not anymore. I am back to square one with a saddle that rolls while using the pad. I followed manufactures washing instructions. Buyer beware, it works at first but long term wear and tear, washing, ect not a good buy:(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Pad Works This pad works on my very round Fjord. It stops saddle roll during mounting and riding. My horses back remains cool. It also has a natural pitch to it that fits nicely up in the channel of the saddle so it does not pull tight across the back or wither area once mounted. The only con, i wish they would have used sheepskin front and back in place of the imitation fleece for this price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really prevents slippage Great saddle pad. Allows close contact, helps keep saddle in place on a "round" horse. Also provides some back protection from pressure while allowing airflow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle pad I really like this saddle pad. It is the perfect thickness, not bulky and it doesn't slide. It washed great and dried overnight in the garage. I had it monogramed - looks sharp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This pad was just what I was looking for to prevent the saddle from slipping forward. It washes perfectly in warm water on delicate cycle, as suggested. I bought a large and indeed it is large. Next time I would try the medium even though I am riding in a 17 and a half saddle but on a short-backed horse. Highly recommend this pad to anyone having problems with the saddle moving around. Also, it did not rub hair out at all. The pad is very pricey, but if you need it, at least it really works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive BUT Worth It Having purchased saddle pads over the years that were in the $25.00 to $50.00 range that were either to short or to long or to thin or to thick and using the jell or sheep skin half pad when needed, I finally took the plunge and purchased this saddle pad which to date is the most expensive pad I have ever purchased. I contemplated the purchase for a couple of months to justify the expense. The concern was that I did not want to add to my saddle pad collection such an expensive pad that did not work for me. This pad is WONDERFUL and it was evident to me and my horse in the first ride that this saddle pad is everything it is advertised to be. This is what I was looking for in a saddle pad. It is not bulky and enables me to enjoy the utility of the monoflap saddle while adding stability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Pad is Genius! ok, it's a bit pricey, but this pad does just what it claims to do and, for horses like mine with broad, hard-to-fit backs, it's a miracle.i have two horses with QH builds and flat withers who require x-wide treed custom saddles, and it has been nearly impossible to keep them from rolling and shifting, even with the girth cranked up. this pad put a complete stop to that and i can let the girths down a few holes, too.i also have an extremely girthy horse, and it helps him too, as i barely need the girth with this under the saddle. and, unlike a lot of other grippy pads, this one allows air to circulate so your horse's back doesn't bake underneath it. if they weren't so pricey, i'd get one for every horse. i wish they came in close contact, too.
