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'!).

We know that you probably don't need a Spur Rub Saddle Pad all the time, so we created a convertible version that allows you easily remove the spur rub guards.

  • Girth loops on both the saddle pad and spur rub guards keep everything sercurely in place
  • Small diamond pattern with brushed cotton underside is comfortable and looks great
  • Spur rub guards attach with VELCRO® brand fasteners to the underside of the saddle pad.
22.5" spine with 20" drop.

    SmartPak Convertible Spur Rub Saddle Pad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad My horse is sensitive to spur rubs (but dull without spurs, go figure) and this pad has stopped all spur rubs. It's a soft pad, I have washed it once so far and it came out clean and white. The girth loops on the main pad and extenders keep everything in place and I don't get any bunching behind my leg. It's not the most attractive thing to put on a horse, but it does it's job and I can't ride with spurs and not use this pad. I use it everyday.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but one minor problem Just got this saddle pad today, super nice, a bit long on my compact 15.3hh gelding. I noticed though that while the extended piece on the right side had lined-up girth loops, the left side did not. During processing, they must have accidentally attached 2 right-side pieces instead of a piece for each side. No matter, both extended sides stayed in place despite the one not going through a loop. Does it's job, the spur rubs I've been fighting were not irritated at all and the fabric is still thin enough that my gelding still listens to the spur.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good pad when needed This is a decent saddle pad, it does help to protect the horses' side from the rubbing of a boot or spur. I live in a very hot and humid climate and in a long lesson, a rub can happen. The good part of the pad is that it incorporates the girth, the less positive part is that the pad can get quite bunched up under the girth. The other issue I found, is that the pad is not gussetted at the wither like most dressage pads are, so when you then put the girth through the lower portion, it seems to really pull on the pad across the back and the wither more than a regular pad. I had to be really careful to allow a lot of extra room at the wither when girthing up or the "pull" of having the lower part of the pad secured by the girth created a tight pull of the pad across the back, especially if both longer sides are attached (I only had an issue on one side, so I took the other extender off and that helped the pressure/ pull). Good product for what it is needed for, allowed me to continue to do some light work for a week while the rub healed. (and just to be clear, the rub never broke skin, the hair came off and I didn't want the area to become more irritated.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad! This is a great pad for horses who get spur rubs. Its great quality, very affordable and looks alot nicer than my old towel! I love that you can take the bottom parts off and still have a normal pad when you dont need them. The loops at the bottom part for the girth really help to keep it in place. My only wish is that it would come in different colors and be made for dressage saddles too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad! I really like this pad. Helped clear up a spur rub in no time. Several of us at the barn are using them now! Thanks Smartpak.
