    Equine Comfort Products Deluxe Classic Half Pad is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from awesome half pad I had bought one previous to this without the extra roll around the outside edge and this time I bought it with it! LOVE the pad!
    Date published: 2014-04-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this half pad! I bought this almost a year ago and it is holding up really well! I use it on my high withered TB and immediately noticed him being more comfortable and willing to work under saddle. My saddle is an 18 and this pad fits! There is no part of the saddle sitting on the sheepskin rolls :) It is holding up well and other than some discoloration to the sheepskin from my dirty horse, it is as good as it was the day I got it. It does have an open channel along the spine which is great and the quality is right up there with Mattes at a way better price! Definitely recommend this half pad!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent half pad Bought this for my narrow high withered OTTB gelding to give him some comfort while being ridden. Looks nice and fits nice. Provides comfort and support for him and my saddle. Love this product. Easily recommendable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this half pad for my 24 year old arabian who has a higher wither and a higher spine. The thickness and the comfort and the fit is amazing. It fits my 17.5 Crosby XL saddle perfectly. I would definelty recommend this pad to anyone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value! I'm very pleased with this half pad. I was able to borrow a friends to try before purchasing my own. After several weeks of riding in it, it is holding its shape rather well. I have no doubt that after washing it properly the sheepskin will fluff up nicely. I'm also very happy with the construction: the open spine, the quality stitching, and the soft sheepskin. It also fits nicely under my 17.5" saddle. I previously owned a Mattes half pad which I also loved, but feel that this half pad is equally as nice for the price. Another plus, the rolled sheepskin at the front and back is not crazy bulky like my Mattes was. Great value, very pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected! While wary at first of the quality of this pad because of the price, I couldn't be happier with it! The sheepskin is of great quality along with the quilting. Fits my 16" Beval very nicely. I've had this pad for about 4 months and I've only had to wash it once. Was nervous to put it in the machine but it came out like new! This pad is holding its own beautifully and looks just as good as a more expensive pad. I've noticed the difference in my mare since I bought it and I wouldn't hesitate to buy again!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the price I was skeptical of buying a sheepskin half-pad for a cheaper price compare to fleece works or mattes but I really like this pad. It's nice sheepskin and fits my prestige Meredith jumper saddle (17") perfectly. I have a matrix half pad for dressage but I've used this under my dressage saddle and it works just as well. Very pleased with this product. ***does not say in description but it does have a spine cutout

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad I bought a half pad for the same price from a local store. This one is 10x better quality! I am very happy with it, as I do not like the ultra fuzzy pads and think they are too bulky. This pad gives just enough padding without the bulk!
    Date published: 2013-04-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right Nice and thick half pad. Can be used with both a baby pad or a regular quilted pad. Comparable to a mattes pad but half the price. Sheep skin is very soft even after being put through the washer and dryer a few times. Love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Half Pad My horse's chiropracter recommended that I get a half pad for my TB while we work to rebuild his topline after a prolonged injury. The two brands she recommened were ECP and Mattes. Based on price I went with ECP. It fits my 17.5" Stubben dressage saddle perfectly and stays in place. I've only had it for a month and it's winter (so sweating) so I haven't washed it yet, but doesn't show any signs of wear. I was compred it to the Mattes pads some of the other boarders have and it doesn't seem as thick, which is probably why it's less expense. Overall it's a nice pad and does the job I bought it for.
    Date published: 2013-02-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As nice as the more expensive pads Did not want to spend money on a mattes pad-this pad is very nice-a great value for the money-washed it in leather detergent in washer and dried it on air setting-came out perfect!!! I am happy I did not spend double for the more expensive pad
    Date published: 2013-01-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Half-pad Very happy with this purchase. I was looking for a pad for a narrow, sensitive TB I was riding, which would not only provide cushion, but raise up the cantle of my saddle a bit. This pad did the trick. Since I use it with a baby pad underneath, it hasn't even seen the wash yet-- even after several months of summer schooling and showing. I'm not only pleased with the quality of this pad, but I'm also pleased with the improvement of my horse's performance with it. He started moving freer and more comfortably as soon as I introduced the pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect half pad! Great price! I have tried a couple half pads and saddle pads to try and find a good fit that would work for my gelding (including ThinLine, BOT, Mattes, SMx, and Matrix/Toklat). By far this is the best half pad with great quality, especially for the price!!! You cannot shim this one, so if you need that customization the Matrix or ThinLine might be a better choice, but for us this was perfect. Helped to fill out the hollows adding a layer of cushion and protection, and it sits perfectly under my 18" Amerigo Vega dressage saddle. My only complaint is it doesn't come in black!
    Date published: 2012-11-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I have had this pad for about 5 years, Love it!The sizing is generous, would work fine for 18" saddles. I always wash it with Melp and it still feels like new. The cotton backing doesnt clean up perfectly, but that part isn't visible under a saddle. Very durable, thick, well made.Comparable products: I too would compare this to a fleeceworks or Mattes. ECP makes a good product.It is larger(the roll edges and therefore overall length), thicker pile, and in general heavier duty than the Ovation brand sheepskin half pads.
    Date published: 2012-10-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sheepskin half pad Have only used this pad a few times so can't really say much about durability, but it appears to be a very well made pad and fits my saddle and makes it very comfortable for my horse. I also like that it looks like one of the uber expensive ones without quite breaking the bank.Haven't washed it yet but if it doesn't shrink in COLD wash I will be even more pleased. The last half sheepskin pad I had (way cheaper) got a little bit smaller each time I washed it. :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Verry Happy With This Pad! A great alternative to the more expensive thinline and mattes look alike pads! Has held up very well with being used about once or twice a day for the past few months. One of my friends says she likes it better than her mattes and thinline pads. It has plenty of room for my 16.5" inch saddle, you could probably fit an 18" without any issues. Overall i'm extremely happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I bought this half pad for my warmblood and love the fit! The quality is great, especially for this price - alot of half pads out there that cost alot more! The pad also seems to be holding up well - I'm happy with my purchase!
    Date published: 2011-11-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with my decision I went back and forth on what pad to get for my horse. I have always been told ThinLine and Mattes pads are the best, but I really didn't want to throw out that much dough... But then you wonder if you'll regret not just going for the higher end pad. I finally settled on this one, and could not be happier. Nice and plush and fits my horse well. A good all around half pad to give that extra cushion to your faithful partner.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from worst purchase If you ride mulitple horses daily, don't bother it won't hold up. I did the instructions to wash (melp) and didn't even put it in a washer it still has fallen apart and this is my second one. I will say that for some reason my white one looks almost new and is 2 years old. go figure
    Date published: 2009-11-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great half-pad for schooling I school my horse in this pad 4-5 times a week. Even though it takes a beating, it has held up very well with a lot of use. Fits my saddle perfectly and cleans up easily in the washing machine with Leather Care detergent.
    Date published: 2009-11-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Get Enough of These! The Equine Comfort Product pads are awesome! This Deluxe Classic Half Pad adds just the right amount of padding to a saddle that fits properly. I like how the sheepskin edge extends all the way around to help hold the pad in place. These pads actually stay cleaner than you would think and are super easy to wash with MELP.
    Date published: 2009-08-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Pad I love this pad. I got it because it is cheaper than other half pads and you can't tell any difference in what brand it is when you use it. Great quality and has held up well. Also, it washes really well.
    Date published: 2009-08-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Wouldn't Buy for Everyday I bought this half-pad almost a year ago. I rode at least 2 horses a day for most the time I used this pad. This pad has now started to fall apart. How ever I must say I used it for about a year and rode many horses with it. I believe if you don't ride as often as I mentioned this would be a Great Pad for you. It is soft and molds to your horse, it is wonderful for Shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Half Pad of the Year The best quality half pad, better then the Mattes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pad at a great price! I recently purchased this pad based on the reviews I read here and I am VERY happy that I did! My horse and I love it. It's well made and attractive. I find sitting my horse's canter to be easier with this pad and he no longer has any soreness in his back. I've tried gel pads and other types of theraputic pads and this has worked the best for us. It's a great pad at a great price. I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I love this half pad. I have one of the more $$ pads and I like this one much better. I have 2 of them now and use them every day! I am in love =)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad I recieved this pad as a Christmas gift and it is by far my favorate half pad that I own. It is just like the more expensive Merino sheepskin pads at half the price!
    Date published: 2008-02-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME pad I love this pad! I recently switched to it from a gel pad because I wasn't satisfied with how the gel pad worked. I have a 14 year old retired ex-eventer thoroughbred and he suffers from soreness, even though I make sure to use extra-thick saddle pads, my saddle was fits him perfectly, and he gets a liniment massage after every ride. He is arthritic and this pad improved his condition drastically, and I can even use regular saddle pad (no more extra thick pads unless it's a long trail ride). I highly recommend it!
