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. A great schooling pad for dressage at an unbeatable price. 

Favorite Features

  • Breathable to help keep your horse cool

    SmartPak Medium Diamond Dressage Saddle Pad is rated 4.531 out of 5 by 145.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Pad I really like this pad a lot. It isn't super thick, but it's not so thin that it doesn't offer any cushion. It seems to not get my horse too hot, and he's the type that sweats if you just tell him he's going to be doing some work. I got both the turquoise and purple and they look awesome! I feel like they fit my Wintec dressage saddle very well, and I would assume they would fit any horse with any saddle nicely. I also got mine embroidered, which I think turned out great also! If I really wanted to pick and complain about this pad, I'd say the Velcro strap that holds onto the girth leathers is a little too short. But that's my only complaint. I can't really speak for durability because I've not had them for very long, and I haven't ridden very often with all the rain and snow! But they seem very good quality so I'm going to assume they are durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT pad at any price!!! I ride in an Ansur treeless dressage saddle, and use a thinner pad. This fits absolutely perfect. The contour at the withers works great for my 15'3 hh QH as well as my 18hh Holsteiner. I had my initials embroidered and it looks so classy! The purple is a royal Minnesota-Vikings type purple, not a darker purple like I consider "eggplant." And the turquoise is a clear, beautiful shade as well. Wish they came in more colors! (Hint, hint, Smartpak)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I bought this saddle pad a few weeks ago with custom embroidery and I love it! Great value for the price and always nice to have an white pad around during show season. I have ordered two white pads already and really look forward to using them this season

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad - good size Bought it in black for my black Friesian. It fits perfectly for my Stübben dressage saddle. Finally not too short. The embroidery turned out very classy. Bought several. So far it holds up well in the washing machine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great simple pad for a great price! This is a nice moderately sized dressage pad, not too short, not too big. Really great for daily schooling rides, easy to wash. LOVE that it came in fun colors (I bought turquoise) and is cheap enough I can have many to rotate through on laundry day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Functional Love the embroidery of our farm name on the blanket. The fit is generous on my 14.2 Morgan and its contoured shape is nice. It is just the right thickness on my no withers mare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Pad! If you are looking for durability and quality, this is the pad. I am rough on my pads, they get used, abused and washed continuously, and this pad still looks like new! I love that it fits my 17.5" saddle perfectly, and doesn't look too big on my 15h gelding. I am definitely purchasing several more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Saddle Pad Good pad for the price. A bit thick - not something to buy if you want a thinner pad. Otherwise great.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't last long I purchased this pad 8 months ago, and within the first 6mo I noticed breakdown of the stitching. Its gotten to the point now that I need to replace it. I have used the pad probably 2 dozen times, max. Ive discovered its best to pay more for a better pad in the long run than having to keep replacing cheap ones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent pad i had this pad monogrammed. quality of pad and monogramming both excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad! I love this pad and don't buy any others now. The size is perfect. Most dressage pads are too long for my short legs, but this pad gives me a little more clearance (yet is perfectly long enough for my saddle). The only reason I gave it a 4 star on value is because the AP style is cheaper and that is just not fair :).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for every day use this pad is good for every day use. Does not look as great as other pads i have purchase, but it is still a decent pad. it does bunch up a bit under saddle..does not move with the horse as well as other pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice pad Nice straightforward pad at a great price. I like the all cotton and never buy foam core pads. This pad does the job and washes easily. I never put it in the dryer as cotton can't help but shrink! It line-dries fast too.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked at first.... I was thrilled with this saddle pad at first- rich black color, lovely monogram... However after the 1st wash it is already looking "worn". THESE PADS SHRINK quite a bit, which is fine for me since they run large my horse needs a smaller pad anyways. The monograms and photos are lovely. They tend to trap heat and do not breathe well, however, they do not shift or bunch up. If I can get them on a sale I may purchase again but with reservations.Overall I would not suggest to a friend due to the heat buildup, shrinking, and worn look. However, for the money they are a great value if they are not washed heavily.
