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'!).

    Reversible Wither Relief Pad is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best pad I have ever owned!! Not only does this pad fit both horses but it looks nice, washes well and is super soft! I have an older QH and his back is sensitive so I wanted to get this pad to protect his back as much as possible. It doesn't have straps to hold it to the saddle but it stays in place without them and stays away from his withers nicely. I have used this saddle pad for 3 years and it still has years left to it! I wash it about every other month and it still fits and looks great. I have the white/black AP version and I put the white side up and the black on his back. The white gets very dirty but a little Shout takes everything out!! I WILL buy this pad again!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from After washing, this became too SMALL! Once I washed it shrunk and did not fit my horse. Verry disappointing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thick and soft Very nice, thick, soft pad. Lots of "cush". I ordered the dressage cut but it really needs to be an inch or two longer to fit really well. I wish Dressage pad came in more than black and white.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft and great colors I love this pad! I just purchased my second one. I still use the first one all the time, but wanted to have another one in a different color. The pad is so soft and even though it doesn't have billet straps it stays in place. I have much more expensive pads but this one is my favorite.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a good Pad for Dressage Saddle! This pad is to short in the spine lenght for a dressage saddle. It does stay in place and looks great but not the appropriate size for my need as a dressage rider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! These pads are great! They have an exaggerated shape giving you lots of room at the withers for a perfect fit on any horse. The poly fill quickly shapes to your saddle and horse and doesn’t feel as bulky as you’d expect. I don’t think I’d use it in the summer, but for winter months they’re awesome. My trainer liked mine so much I got her a few for Christmas! The only hitch is washing – they are big enough they need a front load washer to really get them clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pad I LOVE this pad. Perfect size & thickness. I could describe my gelding as the "prince & the pea". He is extremely sensitive to the spine of saddle pads. This one is very cushioned & he works great in it. Even with no girth straps it stays in place. Wonderful purchase & I will buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful saddle pad! I have not had the chance to use my new pad as of yet - the weather has been absolutely foul, but upon opening the package, I was just thrilled! This pad is top quality. It is lightweight, but nice and thick. The size is perfect for my girl, who is a small Arab cross.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Purpose Pad I was pleasantly surprised with this pad. It is very comfortable and it actually stays in place even without the girth straps! I wish it was a bit bigger, but I plan to buy a couple more anyway. These are excellent pads for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Soft This pad is so soft. It almost feels like a pillow on my horse's back. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Pad i really like this pad. It is a great weight and size. It does not move at all----even on trails and over fences. I worried a little after putting it in the dryer and shrinking it that it would not fit, but it still did! I am very happy with it and will be buying more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE These Pads With the exception of needing white pads for dressage shows, these are THE ONLY pads I will buy. I work my horse in both dressage and jumper saddles, and this pad works perfectly under both. The contoured shape of the pad is perfect, and I love the weight of the pad, definitely not too thin.Did not buy the "dressage" version of this pad because I was a bit worried it would be too bulky and out-of-place in the dressage show ring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I was looking for a nice durable schooling pad and decided on this one because of the reviews it got. I have to say, I tried the day I got it and LOVE it. Its not bulky under the saddle and covers where my last saddle pad didn't. The flaps on my AP are longer and that was a concern when getting another pad (especially online). Again, this pad turned out beyond my expectations and I have at least 2" left at the bottom. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice inexpensive schooling pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this pad! I've been on the search for a new pad, when my current square pad started to die and the three or four others I have wouldn't stay in place. A friend recommended this one to me, and so far I LOVE it! Even without any straps, it hasn't moved, even through rigorous lessons over fences. It's very thick, enough that I don't feel I need any additional pads for back comfort. I'm thinking about getting a second one as a backup for when the other is in the wash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Universal pad I use the Reversible Wither Relief Pad on all my horses. I have a big TB gelding who has very high withers and a high spine and it works great. Ii also have a TB mare that is rounder and it still works well on her without bunching or putting unwanted pressure in places. I love using this saddle pad on every horse I ride.
    Date published: 2008-11-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice pad I love the pad and how it comes in many different colors and the fact that its reversible. My saddle is a little tight on my mare's withers and she hates how it pinches, but with this pad my horse does not mind the tacking up process and the saddle doesn't seem to pinch her anymore. The only problem I have with it is that since it is so thick she sweats very easily and sweats a lot. But it is also due to the warmer weather. Overall it is a great buy with a low price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pad!! This pad is amazing. I have an older horse with a slight sway-back and I wanted a pad that would cushion his back better so I tried this pad, and it is the best pad ever! It is so puffy it is nicknamed the "marshmallow" at the barn, I am very pleased. I have even washed it twice and it did not change at all, it kept the same puffyness and size.
    Date published: 2008-03-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice pad - and good colors I have this pad in navy/light blue. I often get compliments on it and really like how it works with my jumping saddle. The wither relief is nice too. My only complaint is that the pad is a little bulky to launder when it gets dirty.
    Date published: 2008-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pad that protects & doesn't pull over withers I used a more expensive "puff" pad for ages with jumping saddles, and always found I had to make sure it was centered exactly or else one saddle flap would hang beyond the pad. This pad is long enough to not have that worry. Also, the wither relief prevents pull over my horse's medium-high withers. And the color (navy/light blue) is great!
    Date published: 2007-08-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Pad! I had been looking for a pad that could cushion my horse's withers and spine after an old back injury from over 2 years ago. I decided to take a shot on this one because of the relief it seemed to provide and the colors it came in. It really does stay in place and now tacking up is faster and easier without all those extra straps. When I ride in the summer, she is still sweaty, but most of it is absorbed by the pad so she does not suffer as much. A quick dry in the sun and it is ready to use again if needed. In my mind, I think it also has helped keep her pain-free with all of it its comforting puffiness. Hopefully, it will provide a bit of warmth in the colder months. I love it and so does she!
