We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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

We thought about what we want, as riders, when we’re shopping for saddle pads. Then we brought it to life. Outstanding quality, classic styling, and unbeatable prices. Perfect for schooling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it! Very nice quality and it looks so nice on my horse the only reason I am giving only 4 stars is because the writing was a little small but that may have been my error

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product I got this pad embroidered with our farm name and our name as Christmas gifts and they couldn't have been better! Beautiful, well made pad and of course amazing quality! Exactly what I wanted!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice pad We bought these pads to use as show pads in IHSA. We got them with our school color's trim, and then had them embroidered locally. These look very smart and we've received a lot of compliments on these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks amazing I'm always afraid that pads won't fit my weird shaped horse but this one fits great. He's wide so it's a little short but other than that it fits his back and my saddle perfect. Like I said it's a little short but not to where my flaps are over the girth loops (almost though) it's really cute and it completes my first matching tack set after many years of trying! It also is REALLY durable (I was really surprised) I was expecting baby pad quality but it actually feels like a normal pad. (Not a thick one though)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Pad I bought this pad b/c it was pretty inexpensive with good reviews, plus there was a free embroidering promotion. The pad looks like it will be a good quality pad, however, I have not actually used it b/c of the weather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better then a baby pad I like thinner pads because they are easier to clean. Baby pads are too thin and don't seem to fit my guys right but these pads are perfect because they keep shape and look good, but are light enough to easily wash and keep clean. I would give it six stars if it came in more colors!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad Love this saddle pad. My only complaint is that the 'J' in the diamond embroider looks a little funky, almost like a backwards g instead of a j. Great quality and price though
    Date published: 2016-12-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! I got this in the mail today and rode with it, I love it so much! I love the small diamond stitching and trim. It's really nice quality and looks good. I was worried about it having no billet straps because I thought it would slip, but it didn't at all. Love it!
    Date published: 2016-11-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Pad! I just received this pad in the mail. I LOVE IT. I love that it's thin and breathable and does not come with the billet straps. I cut mine off anyway. I love the grey piping. I also got mine embroidered in grey and it came out beautifully. Will definitely be ordering more in the future!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color and size Hard to give this a fair review as I haven't used it yet. I am switching from riding Western to an all purpose English saddle. I love the look of the pad and I hope this will work with the saddle. For the price it is worth to have an extra pad just in case.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got this saddle pad as a gift for my niece during SmartPak's 25% off SmartPak brand items sale. As with all SmartPak brand items the quality is great and I couldn't beat the price (even at full price its a good deal). I also like that the pad is light and dries out easily. I'm planning to get another for myself soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I got this saddle pad for a great price with SmartPak's 25% off SmartPak brand items sale and a free embroidery code, but I would definitely pay full price for it. I chose gray piping with a pink monogram and it came out to be super cute! This is a thinner pad but still plenty of cushion under my saddle and Thinline half pad. Nice, bright white. I've gotten lots of complements on this pad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So versatile! I got this a little over a month ago and it has worked beautifully in both the show and schooling rings. Since it is a very plain saddle pad it gives you lots of room for embroidery (which is what I did with mine).
    Date published: 2016-08-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pad, though a little stiff This is a great pad for schooling or even some shows. My only complaint is the fabric is stiffer so it sometimes doesn't lay well on the horse. But that's just nitpicky, and it's a great pad for the money.
    Date published: 2016-08-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted. The pink is a little darker than in the picture but it's a really pretty pink. The pad is of really good quality. I got it monogrammed and it seems like it is a really good quality embroidering, I don't know much about embroidering though. Would highly recommend for a show pad!
    Date published: 2016-08-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these pads I am admittedly addicted to buying my horses stuff - and I love these pads I can get them new pads economically and they hold up beautifully to washing them them - I also had them embroidered which turned out gorgeous! Thank you
    Date published: 2016-08-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect pad! I just received this pad a few weeks ago and I am IN LOVE with it! I ordered 3 of them (gray, burgundy, and hunter green) each with a matching monogram. These pads are a great quality at a perfect price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for schooling Love how well this pad washes and it is a great size
    Date published: 2016-08-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pad This pad is everything I look for in a pad:* It isn't stiff (crams nicely into my washing machine)* It is the right size under the saddle* No billet loops (you know you usually cut them off anyway)* Fun piping lets you personalize while maintaining a classic look* Great value for moneySeriously...what more could you possibly want out of a pad?
    Date published: 2016-08-02
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty for VERY light use I ordered 2 of these for a show with the embroidery. I was thrilled they came in a week just in time for the show and they looked pretty good. The stitching was a little smaller than expected, I would probably go with a different script now knowing how small they came out. I was disappointed after the first wash to see the stitching coming out at the seam and on the 2nd wash they are pilling. I only use these for shows and wash them right away to keep them nice and white, I wouldn't recommend them for everyday use as they'll be pretty beat up quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! Great pad for the money. I always cut the keepers off anyway, so this is perfect! I like that it is a nice cross between a thin baby pad and a thick fluffy bad that creates too much bunk. It's just thick enough to protect my half pad, but not too thick to affect saddle fit.
