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'!).

    Equine Comfort Products Classic Half Pad is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good suggestion! I had a friend suggest this pad to me to help me get my mare, Heidi, get comfortable with the saddle again as her growing and mildly changing body needed it. I got this and tried it today and it was like having the old Heidi back!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Half Pad! This half pad has nice, heavy stitching and wonderful fabric on the top. The sheepskin is of stellar quality and is soft, supportive, and breathable.My horse and I perform better because his back is no longer sore.I am very pleased with this half pad for the price, couldn't get anything better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Half Pad This pad is terriffic. It is good looking and fits under my saddle perfectly. It is exactly what I was looking for and is exactly as described. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a half pad, and you can't beat the price for this quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice pad for the $ I took a chance on this pad, knowing many preferred the thinline or Mattes. I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of this pad, and how well it works. My mare is rebuilding her topline, and needs extra padding while we condition her. This pad is excellent for that, I may even buy another!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice pad, great quality for the price. Ordered this pad after my saddle fitter recommended one as my guy comes back after injury (lost some muscle definition and saddle was downward). Quality is great, regardless of the price (which is less than many others), and fits under my 17.5 barnsby without issue. Sheepskin is soft and washes easily on delicate with gentle detergent.Also one of the few I found without rolls on the back which never seem to sit right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! Fits great and stays in place! Very soft and keeps it's shape through the wash. I always ride in this pad. Recently had the vet come by for a check up and my horse has absolutely no back soreness! This pad is a great buy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit This half pad fits my dressage saddle really well. The pad is really good quality and it is so soft. My horse just loves it and I do to, He moves so much better and his back warms up faster. I will never ride with out this pad!.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible fit My close contact saddle does not fit my horse very well. I decided to buy this and try it out. The half pad barely fits my saddle, every time I ride with it the pad slips. Since the pad slips it's useless. I tried the pad on several different horses and different saddles. All different breeds and shapes of horses as well as different saddles and each time I get the same result, the pad slips.I've always loved ECP products but this is their worst product yet, I'm not sure I'll ever buy a product made by them again!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst Half Pad Ever Bought this pad because both my close contact and all purpose saddle pad didn't fit as well as I would have liked it. Going back and forth from this product and a product from dover I decided to pick this partly because of the price but also because of the great reviews it got.This pad does not fit either saddle. Its too small and moves around. I would NOT recommend this to anyone, price isn't much different from any other half pad, so pay the 2 extra dollars and get a better quality half pad.
    Date published: 2010-12-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great deal this is the cheapest i found the pad the closest was dover but even they wanted around 10 dollars more for it plus almost $15 in shipping. fits my horse great feels very comfortable and cushy in the saddle i would recomend to everyone
    Date published: 2010-03-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT saddle pad I am completely in love with this product. Now there's less pad between me and my horse, but the essential areas are comfortably covered. Both of us are comfy, in closer contact, and very happy with our classic half pad.
    Date published: 2007-07-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pad! This is the best pad I've ever bought! Fits perfectly under the saddle, never slips. Very "cushy" and soft. When washed, it comes out nice and clean. Once dry it looks and feels like new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consider a Half Pad If you have ever considered a half pad, consider no more - buy! I have had a horrible time fitting my wide but with moderate withers Paint in a hunt-seat saddle. The medium trees were slightly too narrow, the wide tree sat on his withers (choose a medium flex tree saddle).... I had also had issues with the saddle never quite sitting evenly; it tended to shift slightly to the left regardless of how I adjusted my seat or the stirrup leathers. At the recommendation of a friend I tried a half pad - problem solved! Saddle sits perfectly and my horse is much happier!
