We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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'!).

Why We Love This

The moisture-wicking properties of the CoolMax fabric on the underside of the pad, combined with the diamond quilting, provide cool comfort that is second to none! Reinforced wither relief, billet straps and girth loops.

    Lettia Coolmax ProSeries Dressage Pad is rated 4.6897 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this pad recently. I'm still deciding if I like it. It's a bit thinner than I typically like but I do think the new technical fabric is helping to control odor from sweat and grit. For that reason I may decide that I love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality! Like the higher wither fit, and that it is oversized. This is a very good dressage pad for everyday use at a good price. Only thing I would like to see on more dressage pads is stitching between the girth straps. My horse has a lot of action, so dressage pads tend to slip and move.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as it looks. I bought this pad for my high withered oldenberg because it was described as providing wither relief and it looked as though it had a nice curved topline. However, when I received it the topline was not all that curved and when I put it on my horse it put pressure on his withers. The only pad I have found so far that clears his withers is the one sold by my saddle maker and I can't get another one of those til she comes for another fitting so I guess l'll just keep on trying. Saddle pad was returned.Quality and appearance were fine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful details, love the no fiction fabric Purchased in both white and purple. The purple is outstanding. It glows. The pipping and stitching are a little sensitive and have come undone in some areas which is an unfortunate frustration.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality materials and thoughtful design I was looking for a saddle pad in a fun color and loved this purple. Bonuses were nice padding and a great fit on my older horse with a bit of a high wither.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY IT!! Bought this pad a month ago,,,even though it's winter it has been amazing. I no longer have to rush to put his cooler on after a hard ride, because his back is barely wet! Can't wait to train in it in the summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pad EVER I have the Lettia all-purpose pad and just love it. For a schooling show I needed a new dressage pad and just knew there is no other pad for me than the Lettia Coolmax. I love the fabric, it holds up great in the washer and doesn't collect much dirt to begin with. The wither relief is just perfect and this is the only pad that fits my horse just perfect. Every other pad I have to pull and tug to get in place. This one I just put on him and it is perfect!!!!!!!!! Will never buy a different brand. Wish it would come in more colors or patterns.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Coolmax Difference There are a lot of saddle pads out there. The trim and quilting on the Lettia Coolmax ProSeries are neat and plain, with straight seams. The fit is good for a horse with a typical or high wither. The featured Coolmax lining dries quickly even when completely saturated with horse sweat. That quick-drying means fewer launderings, and a longer life overall. Highly recommended for frequent riders and hot weather rides!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!! <3 I got this pad and I love it so much! I lease a really high withered gelding and it is super hard to find pads with enough wither clearance! This pad is beautiful and helps keep my horse dry in the georgia heat! It wicks so much of his sweat away and makes my job of grooming him much easier! I would totally recommend this pad for any dressage rider that has a high withered horse and wants a super nice pad that will wick away sweat!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! I recently purchased this pad and could not be happier. It is the perfect medium weight, keeps my horse cool and wicks away moisture, and is a great fit. My horse is big bodied and I often have a hard time finding pads that have enough length but this is perfect. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle pad! I live in Tucson, AZ = very hot summers. I wanted a medium thickness pad with wicking properties that would fit my horse's wide and high withers, stay in place, and stand up to repeated use and washings.The Lettia Coolmax meets all my requirements. The wicking definitely keeps my mare's back drier. I bought the white one, and it stays clean and bright with good care. My practice is to brush the underside off with a stiff brush after we finish our rides to keep the hair and grime from accumulating, and I wash the pad every three-five uses, depending. To wash, I put a small amount of liquid dish soap in a big bucket of water, spray the pad with a hose, pour some of the soapy water on the pad, brush with stiff brush then rinse very thoroughly and line-dry. The pad is standing up to the use and washings, and still looks bright, white and new with minimal wear.I recommend this pad, and will buy more for extras!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice pad! I love that you can customize it as your horse changes shape. It's nice to use this system in a single pad as well. It is really well made, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dressage Pad Very nice pad. I don't know how it will stand up over time, since I have not used it yet. I decided to go with the logo on the side, and thnk they did a really good job--very profesionally done. I like that SmartPak sends a return address label if you are not satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely pad with great wicking properties Whenever I see a purple dressage pad, I feel compelled to buy it (purple and yellow are my colors). I have not regretted purchasing this pad in the least! I love that it's cut and padded for high withers, and the wicking properties are outstanding! It was great to use this pad in the summer and know it was helping to keep my horses cool. I was very surprised when I saw how wet it got on the top side of the pad! The CoolMax fabric really does work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Dressage Pad Lettia coolmax pads of any type are always my favorite. Especially with the heat and humidity we've had in the South lately. Lettia pads have held up very well with repeated washings, and Smart Pak does a great job on the embroidery! This pad is a great thickness, not too much to use an additional thin type pad, although it's not a baby pad and would be too thick to use with a fleece or sheepskin half pad at least for my horse and saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pad! I love Lettia pads, esp the CoolMax ones. They wash well, keep my horse drier and fit fantastically, esp in the withers. HIGHLY recommend for both Dressage & AP.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pad! I purchased this pad and was extremely impressed with the quality- excellent weight, very breathable, fit perfect, love the raised wither and the color was very deep and vibrant. I also added on the monogram and was impressed with the quality of that as well!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like the cool max feature, but... I really like the Cool Max fabric that really draws the sweat through the thickness of the pad away from the body. I can see such a difference compared to the lack of sweat on top of my other pads after a workout. I also like the fact that the pad is thinner than my Classic III pads since I like to use a wool fleece pad and don't want any extra bulk. However, after only a few washings (and I wash nearly after each use), the fabric along the piping has pulled through the stitching and will be fraying soon. And the pad also tends to want to curl up in the corners so I wish it were a bit more substantial like my thin Passier pad or my thicker Classic III pads. Also the fabric appears to be pilling from wear already from my legs. This pad will definitely not hold up the way my Passier or Classic III pads have been holding up for years. I just wish they all came with the Cool Max lining! One more thing, the piping trim ends on a visible edge of the pad, not in an obscure area near the billet loops as my other pads do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Saddle pad This saddle pad is a great buy. It is a lovely color, perfect size for my dressage saddle, and wicks away moisture very well. A ittle more then I prefer to spend, but definately worth it. Totally recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Saddle Pad! I have nothing but good things to say about Lettia in general, but these saddles pads are great. They absorb sweat well, they stay in place well and you can wash them over and over without any sign of wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME pad This is my new favorite pad! I am ordering two more right now. Pulls moisture away from my horse's back and just the right thickness. Really nice, high quality pad...worth the money!
