We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional 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'!).

The Cashel Tush Cush puts relief only where you need it, allowing you to ride comfortably for hours. The Tush Cush is made with the same closed-cell foam as the Cashel wedge saddle pads. It will not compact or bunch up like fleece seat savers nor absorb and hold heat like a gel pad will.

Adjustable nylon straps hold the Tush Cush firmly in place, preventing sliding and shifting problems. One size.

    English Tush Cush is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad design I purchased the Tush Cush to soften the seat of my wonderful 35 year old Stubben A/P saddle. It's a good idea but the design had a major problem. The photo in the product listing shows 2 flat D-rings attaching the straps to the front of the saddle. However, when I received the product, there were large snap buckles attaching the straps. I put it on the saddle but when I got on and went into two point, the buckles dug into my thighs. Not a good design, so I returned it. If you only do flat work and slow trail riding, I guess it could be OK. But if, you do any forward seat riding, I don't think you'll like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband is "back in the saddle"! I bought this cushion for my tall, thin, over 60ish husband, because he said that it "hurt to ride". He is now able to accompany me on trail rides. It absorbs the shock, especially at a trot. The pad is easy to attach and remove (he is using a borrowed saddle).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This made my uncomfortably hard saddle nice and soft to sit on. I am also using it to keep the seat protected from further cracks. It stays in place between rides and doesn't slip during my rides at all gates and transitions. Love it!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good trail cushion It slips too much to really work in and adds too much bulk under thigh but did cushion my seatbones. I would recommend this for a hard seated saddle if all you are going to do is go out for a relaxing ride!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big improvement! The cushion is great and has made a BIG difference in my comfort! The only problem is that it did not fit my dressage saddle and I had to cut straps off and sew elastic on to make it work. It doesn't slide at all and was worth the effort. It is a 5 star product except for the fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable! This does not fit my 17 1/2 inch dressage saddle and I was very frustrated in the beginning. However, it is so comfortable that I was willing to make some changes to the fitting. A little elastic made a lot of difference! Now I refuse to ride without it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for my program I ordered one a few years ago to cover the seat of one of my summer camp saddles that got chewed on by a horse. It made the saddle much more comfortable and I've had no problems with it slipping, even with lots of riders getting on and off all day long. We don't do a lot of cantering or jumping, however, so I don't know if it might slip doing those things. I'm getting ready to order some more.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SLIDES ALL OVER THE PLACE Returned, the pad slides all over. My daughter has a small saddle but can't imagine it works in any size saddle. no directions but we tried every way to secure and nothing made it stay in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! This product has made my butt and back so much happier. I've been riding in a saddle that fits my horse, but is very hard on my bottom and back because the seat is as hard as a rock. I'd be sore for the next 24 hrs after riding. The Tush Cush has been a Godsend...instant relief while riding, and no more soreness afterwards!! It stays in place, and doesn't bunch up while you're riding. Great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy I haven't had this that long but used it a number of times on short (hour long) trail rides, and just went for a 3hr trail ride and it really makes a difference. I am very comfortable and no longer get sore. It is really easy to put on and take off. My only suggestion would be to make it bigger, I use it on a dressage saddle and need to place it correctly to sit on it, and I am pretty small. Don't want to discourage people, I really like it and would recommend it, just different sizes would be a good idea.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from English Tush Cush Good Choice Nice quality; arrived very quickly as I was anxious to try it after a recommendation by a friend. It's on my old dressage saddle which is rather hard & uncomfortable; it makes a world of difference! Stays very securely in place - something I had worried about.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfy I bought this for my neighbor who always complains of sore seat bones every time we ride together. She was able to attach it to her saddle easily and we have been on several long rides since without a complaint from her about being sore. I would definitely recommend this product!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't fit my saddle I returned this item because the straps that hold it on the saddle seemed to have to stretch too far to fit around the flaps of my 17" dressage saddle. I was concerned that it wouldn't hold up as the loop the straps have to go through were really strained. When I sat on it it felt comfortable but I didn't actually ride in it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for trail riding, not for ring riding Very comfortable for trail riding, however I do not reccommend it for every day riding in the arena as you will find it to be very bouncy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from English Tush Cush I purchased a Tush Cush from SmartPak not long ago. I had been using fleece pads, and found they had all the problems stated in the description, along with poor attachment systems. The Tush Cush, on the other hand, sits securely with its adjustable straps and buckles, which I consider an improvement over the usual velcro-like closures. It also doesn't involve any saddle D-rings to secure it, leaving them free for other trail uses. It is easy to maintain and never feels hot when riding. An added bonus is that it tends to help me stay in correct position, adding a bit of 'stick.' With other pads I have found myself constantly adjusting to maintain a balanced seat, probably due to their constant shifting on the saddle. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a comfortable and more secure ride.
