Foam is too dense
I purchased this hoping that it would replace my worn out gel pad. It's not going to work because it is too hard and not going to be beneficial to my horse. I honestly don't think it would help any horse's back.

I have a high-withered horse and he is the most happy in this pad. Though his saddle is well-fitted, I am uneven (as most of us are) and this pad seems to help distribute my weight more evenly. It's not too thick and though stiff, does mold easily once on the horse. I was worried about washing it, but so far it's held up well with machine wash and air dry.

Nice but room for improvement
The pad is well made. There are 2 issues- it is not cut for higher withers. Also, the memory foam is very hard until it is warmed. So in cooler weather, it needs to be kept in a heated room until the last minute, or put on the horse very early to warm up before mounting. Once warm it was soft and my horse seemed to enjoy it. The issues are workable, but it is not exactly what I was expecting.
