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 4.5938 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality product The company that made my horse his semi-custom saddle had recommended I purchase this product, to help with saddle fit. My WB cross has very large shoulders and gets a lot of movement of the saddle when he works. Due to the cost, I had been holding off. I am very happy I decided to go ahead and spend the money. A very well-made, quality product that looks and has been functioning like it will hold up very well over the long term. I feel it has helped with my overall saddle fit on my horse, and it certainly feels very comfortable to ride in. I went with the chocolate color to avoid dirt showing from the day to day usage. Since it's working out well, I can see purchasing a white for showing, or a cover if it's available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves sale fit when riding multiple horses I use this pad on my welaptop muscled TB and the babies that are still developing. Makes saddle fit so much easier.Got the white but it does pick up dirt quickly. Whish the covers were sold separately

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! So comfortable for the horse. I spent a week at a family friends barn, and rode with this pad. It is great quality and long lasting. It distributes pressure evenly, and sets you up for a great ride!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have for the Happy Horse I recently bought this pad as my second Ogilvy and I'm so, so pleased with this company. I firmly believe that there's no excuse for causing a horse discomfort, and began to notice my (now) 15-year-old, high-withered Hanoverian showing signs of mild back-soreness despite a properly-fitted saddle and adequate warm-up/cool-down time. Although it hurt a bit to part with so much money, this pad has made every bit of difference for both my gelding and me. The very first time I tacked up with this pad I noticed my horse relax visibly even before I mounted and it was such a pleasure to feel him fall into that happy, swinging, tracking trot almost immediately. He feels so good now that it's almost a nuisance, as he's taken to playfully bucking after jumps these days and prancing around like the lunatic ex-dressage horse he is, but I can't say I mind. There's nothing like riding a horse that feels good and loves their work, and Ogilvy has given that back to me as a rider and owner. I also have to say that, even as a 20-year-old, I've frequently had a sore back from old falls and after jumping and no longer feel that familiar tension in my lower back while using my Ogilvy pad.I also use this pad while catch riding. From slab-sided Thoroughbreds and vaguely-obese Dutch WB down to a pokey little Welsh hunter, I find that it really allows my somewhat-narrow-gulleted Butet saddle to fit a variety of horses without pressure points or discomfort.I bought both my Ogilvy's in white which sounds risky, as they do attract dust and horse hair, but the covers are removable and clean up beautifully with a mild spot-spray and cool, gentle cycle in the washing machine (air dry). I can't say they look terrible in the show-ring either :)I'm so happy that SmartPak has begun to carry this brand & have worked their magic keeping the prices reasonable. It would be brilliant if the Ogilvy covers could be sold separately from the gel inserts, because I know I would love to switch out my white covers for brown or black or green while schooling, but I can't complain.I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ogilvy Memory Foam Half Pad Wonderful product for my horse's back during training and competition. I highly recommend it and I wouldn't mind having one in my office chair.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
