    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for high withers! My Thoroughbred has high withers. This pad fits him great! I love the fluffiness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad Pad was just as expected. Doesn't seem to be too hot either...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from cozy and colorful really like this pad...and I think my horse does too! My 27 yr old Arab lost weight moving from Ohio to SC, this was perfect to make riding more comfortable for her. Reversible blue/ green adds to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Comfy This is a great saddle pad. It is very durable in washings and nice for the winter season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!! I love this pad. It is a regular, which most regular saddle pads don't fit my large Stubben, but this one fits it perfectly! It is very cushion-y and it makes my horse look very plump. It does, however, slide a little, but not drastically.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pad I absolutely adore this pad. I love that it provides my horse's back with some extra comfort and cushioning without being too bulky or hot. I get compliments on it all the time, and people are always jealous when they find out it's reversible! This is a great pad for schooling, showing, and adding extra protection and comfort for your horse's back (especially if your half pad is worn or thin). Definitely recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanted a 'puff pad' but was concerned about lack of shape of most with my curvy horse. The contour on this pad is perfect! Nice and puffy, but not overstuffed. A very nice everyday saddle pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saddle pad I love these pads and buy them whenever I can find them on sale. They fit my horse well with no other padding under my saddle and they stay in place.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too thick for my needs I thought this was a thinner pad and unfortunately it turned out to not be what I was hoping for, so I returned it. Very good quality, though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I absolutely love this pad. Fits great and I bet if you asked my horse he would tell you it's the most comfortable pad he's ever worn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely Recommend This pad is very plush, but is not too thick as to impact saddle fit. The whither relief allows that pad to fit nicely into the pommel of the saddle. I was concerned that there may be slippage of the saddle pad since there are no velcro or girth straps, but I have not found this to be a problem. I would definitely recommend this product and will be purchasing this saddle pad in other colors.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing This is a very nice saddle pad--but it slips. Maybe it's the way my saddle fits my horse, but w/o girth loops it won't stay put. Also, the white fabric is nice and soft, but the black fabric is stiffer and not as soft, polyester-y. The dimensions of the pad are good for a dressage saddle and it looks well made. Ultimately though, as much as I wanted to like it, the slipping issue is a deal-breaker.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from stays in place Trainer recommended this when I was having problems with pad not creeping under saddle. Once girth tightened, pad stays in place w/o pinching at the withers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I purchased this and it was great, normally I need a half pad to help my saddle fit my horse properly but with this pad it was not necessary!I have since bought a few more and they all are holding up very well even with a weekly trip to the washing machine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad for difficult horse I have a shark finned mare with a back injury, and this pad has finally combined our need for a pad that is thick enough to keep her comfortable with the need for something that doesn't slide a ton. Now, this pad does slide some. But I've tried literally a gazillion of them on my horse, and this one stays in place better than anything else I've tried. It is very plush, washes easily, looks sharp and it a super, SUPER nice pad for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reversible Wither Relief Pad Love this product. It does not slip around on my horses back. It gives him the comfort of the extra quilting. And the bonus is that if I want to change the look (color) of my pad all I have to do is flip it over. I purchased the White and Black colors. The White I use for more formal, while the Black I use for everyday. I recomended this pad with the highest of ratings.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pad, slips easily I bought this pad in the dressage size, it fits my horse and saddle well, and I love the fluffy fill. The only down side is it slips back easily, and doesnt have billets to keep it in place. For the price its worth getting it and sewing your own on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Saddle Pad This is the greatest saddle pad ever. I like the wither relief design because my warmblood horse has withers like a thoroughbred. It stays in place even though there aren't any billet straps or girth loops and it is just great! I highly recommend this pad to everyone and for schooling, it is the only pad I use anymore!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This! I bought this pad for my 3 yr old mare that I just started under saddle. My trainer had a similiar one and recommended this thick pillowy type of pad for my horse. She is much happier with this pad under her saddle, as opposed to the one I had been using. Will be buying one soon for my daughter's horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Good Buy I haven't had the pad for long but it is very good quality and can be put into the washing machine. This makes thing a lot easier to keep clean and in good shape. The price is very reasonable for the quality. It fits my QH mare as well as my Saddlebred. I will be buying a couple more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pad out there I LOVE this pad. I've had it for about 4 months and washed it 50+ times and it is still just as nice as the day I bought it. Other than a few minor stains from where the girth rubs it, It is in excellent condition. The fill is very nice and squishy which is very nice for the 15 year old OTTB that I ride who has extremely high withers.

    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.
    Date published: 2010-02-03
    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.
    Date published: 2010-01-12
    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.
