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'!).

Why We Love This

The Ogilvy Memory Foam Half Pad is the best solution on the market to avoid any back rubbing or friction. The memory foam acts as a buffer that fills any voids between the saddle and the horse, stabilizing the saddle, and provides shock absorption for the backs of both horse and rider. This allows your saddle to fit perfectly on any horse, as the memory foam gets very thin where there are pressure points or where the saddle gets closer to the horse. As good for the rider's back as for your horse's back!  Imported.

    Ogilvy Memory Foam Half Pad is rated 4.4583 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too thick! Very well made half pad w/ removable inserts for easy washing, but the entire half pad was too thick for my preference. I had planned to use it w/ my jumps and dressage saddles. I returned it after trying it on under my saddles. It did not work for me, but is beautifully made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Great pad! Fits my saddle and my horse perfect, my horse goes great in it! The memory foam feels so nice and squishy it makes me feel good that I have extra comfort for my horse. I bought the chocolate brown and it looks really sharp under my saddle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves saddle fit I've owned many half pads from many different brands: Roma, Ecogold, Thinline, Equifit etc. But I must say that my most favorite so far has been the Ogilvy half pad. I say this because I constantly ride many different horses, from tiny little ponies to big warmbloods. So my saddle isn't necessarily custom fit to any particular back. Over time this can become a problem, and some backs will get sore after a couple of rides. I could often tell by the sweat marks and dry spots, so I was constantly trying to fix this by using different half pads. It didn't always work. When I got my Ogilvy half I loved how "fluffy" it was. But after riding with it I could notice a huge difference. It will fill in and adjust my saddle to the back. All the horses I ride will sweat evenly. My mare had a chiropractor visit her a few months later, he said he was surprised her back wasn't sore, since it was a common problem he'd find in many jumping horses.Another plus is that you can change the cover on this half pad. I own a white cover for shows and a light brown/navy for daily schooling.One useful tip is to re adjust your girth once you are on. The half pad is so thick and spongy that once it has weight on, it will kind of shrink down. So your girth will get looser once you are on.This half pad is worth every penny.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased this pad about a month ago and was pleasantly surprised with its look. I then used it to ride and it immediately pinched my horses withers so badly that he fell down once I got on. I thought that maybe it was my saddle so I switched the saddle and the same thing happened. I finally changed the pad and immediately he was completely back to normal. It then became apprentice to me that I spent $300 on a custom saddle pad that I cannot use to ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution! This half pad really made a difference. I ride a very close contact saddle and my horse has slightly uneven shoulders. This pad absolutely corrected a saddle fit problem due to the memory foam fitting the contours of his body. I highly recommend this pad to anyone who wants close contact with their horse combined with back and shoulder relief for their horse. This pad is awesome!
