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'!).

    Gamgee Absorbant Pad is rated 4.9333 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Stuff! A couple of months ago, my gelding was goofing off on a steep muddy slope, lost his footing and slid on his butt until he crashed into cyclone fencing. His leg slid under the fencing and he obtained a horrible gash. I was not prepared for this type of wound and has to resort to cutting up some baby diapers to use as a wound covering until the vet arrived. I decided to purchase a roll of the Gamgee Absorbant Pad to keep on hand in the event we ever had another emergency. Thank goodness I haven't had a need to use for an emergency. However, today my gelding was so chill, I decided it was as good a time as any to clean his sheath. I couldn't locate the small rags that I generally use for this job but did spot my roll of Gamgee. I decided to cut a square off and use it for job. Wow! Perfect alternative use for this stuff. Cut whatever size you need. It so extremely soft and gentle. You can extend it out flat or wad up in a ball to get right up in there. I'll be using this every time it's sheath cleaning day! And if that's all I get to use it for, I'll be glad with that!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cotton padding EVER! Thankfully I don't need to use this often but when I do I am THANKFUL I have it!  The ONLY wound wrap I will use!  Easy to cut to fit, the non-stick cover is awesome and also keeps it together so its not falling apart as your trying to wrap a cranky, fidgety injured horse!  This is a must have for my first aid kit!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 18 inches? They should offer this in an 18 inch version, that's my only complaint. For a hind leg injury 12 inches is just not enough. The pad itself is great but it's not long enough for a back leg wrap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gamgee absorbant pad This is the only absorbent pad we use. It helps the wounds heal better by not allowing pieces of cotton to get into the wound! Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wrap! Great wrap to bandage wounds, used over the top of a four x four pad and cover with vet wrap. Helped keep swelling down and prevented bandage rubs. I always keep this on hand!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great to keep on hand these rolls are great. you can use the entire roll, or you can cut off as much as you need. can double as shipping/standing wraps in a pinch. I bought at least 6 rolls for an injured horse, and it's been almost a month and I still have 3 rolls left. they last a long time or they provide thick padding if needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute necessity in a First Aid kit I have used this for years - mainly in my first aid kit for padding under bandages to hold dressings in place - but also as padding under exercise bandages. An absolute staple!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always have on hand My favorite leg bandage material. It never gets stuck to the wound and holds up well. If I'm in a bind and have to use it for standing wraps, it can be re-used.
