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 styles and unbeatable prices.

    SmartPak Small Diamond AP Saddle Pad is rated 4.7778 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect baby pad While I have not used this yet as I bought it for schooling at shows, it is the perfect weight. I love the small diamonds. The monogramming on it came out perfect and it arrived a week after I ordered it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice pad for the price I haven't washed this pad yet...but it looks very nice and the embroidery came out great...(although I "entered" my initials in the wrong order)...The color, (I ordered navy), is a true dark navy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle Pad This is a great saddle pad especially for the price. It has a nice shape to the spine leaving room for the withers. My horse has huge withers so this was diffidently a plus. It is not too thick or too thin. The stitching is nice. The pad seems like it will wear great. Overall a great schooling pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite pad This is a really beautiful and well made pad. I love the look of the small diamond pattern, but I also like that it is slightly thinner than the medium diamond pad. It works very well under my fleece half pad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like this pad Great quality for the money. Only complaint: billet strap did rip on the third washing. Monogramming was fast and looks really polished!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pad I really like this pad. It's a great pad for the price, looks very nice. Also had it embroidered, which looks really nice. It's one of my favorite pads, and I'd definitely buy again.One downside… It isn't very cushioned at the withers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I liked this pad enough to give as a gift- great for schooling and hold up nicer than a lot of other pads! Plus the options on embroidery were fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! I bought my pad last year, I got it monogrammed and let me just say it looks gorgeous! What I love about this pad is is not too thick, buts its not too thin like a baby pad. I rode in it all winter and recently washed it in the washer and it came out looking brand new. I got my monogram in white and it contrasts quite nicely on the navy pad. Fantastic pad for a great price, looks great schooling but I will also be using it in the jumper ring at rated shows this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely pad I bought this a month ago and just love it! I especially love the small diamond pattern on it. Plus they had free embroidery and it looks great! Would definitely buy more :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, clear embroidery I bought this as a gift for my niece, who just got her first horse for Christmas. It looks like it will work very well on her paint and I'm certain she'll be thrilled with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad I bought two of these pads, one in black and one in white, and had both monogrammed. I absolutely love this pad! It feels heavy duty without being super bulky and looks great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality pad. Nice pad with personalization options. Great for schooling or to keep as a show pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this in navy to use for shows on my dapple grey TB mare. The color is rich and beautiful, and will look great on her. The smaller diamond pattern also makes this pad look smart. Next time I buy this pad, I think I'm going to get it embroidered to make it look even better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pads I'm not a fan of big saddle pads. I usually ride in a baby pad with my thinline sheepskin pad but for the sake of looking neat and professional I got two of these pads and I am greatly impressed. These have more structure than a baby pad, obviously. But they are nice and thin, there's no bulk under my leg and I'm not worried about any slippage or bunching because of the girth and billet straps. I might not ride in a baby pad again, I'm hooked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant! I have bought these before in both the Dressage and AP size - I can't lie, I'm have a saddle pad addiction. This time I took advantage of the free personalization that comes with the barn program to buy one as a dual gift for my trainer. Her stallion had just successfully completed the 70-day stallion testing in Tulsa, OK, and Christmas was coming. I got it in white with green embroidery, then decided I would test SmartPak's ALWAYS exceptional Customer Service by asking for the horse's name in hunter green, but the Holsteiner emblem in black. No problem! And the result was absolutely elegant! These pads are smart-looking, hard-working, and have just the right amount of fill so that the extra wither or back pad fits very nicely. Thanks, SmartPak for a simply lovely gift.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Returning - Too Thin I liked the overall look of this pad, the size of it, and the smaller diamonds. However, it is very thin in terms of the pad thickness itself so I am returning it. I don't like super thick pads because that will interfere with saddle fit, but (from my experience) it doesn't take long after using a pad a while and a few washes for it to become thinner if it starts out too thin then I know it won't work down the road. I am going to try another pad. I know I'm picky, but if it's going on my boy's back it has to be ok with me, and my saddle fitter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice I use them for showing (jumpers). I like the small diamond style best. I think they look nicer, lay better and are less bulky than the larger diamond style. The overall size of the pad is great, too. Fits my horse well and looks nice under my saddle without being so big that it gathers under the pummel or sticks out a foot past the flap like some pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad I am usually very picky about my saddle pads and I do not like many brands. I decided to try this one after returning a Union Hill pad. This one was a great surprise, something I have come to love about Smartpak products! I really like the small diamond pattern. Pad is just the right weight, not to thick but enough fill to fit great with my Mattes half pad. Purchased this to be my stadium pad for shows only so I can't comment on durability as I only use it lightly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect schooling pad I needed a few new saddle pads for schooling and looked no further than Smartpak. I bought a few black pads with white monogramming and am thrilled with how great it turned out! Now my horse and I can look professional at an affordable price. The only thing that could have made it better was how fast the delivery was, even with embroidery! Smartpak has done it again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle pad I love my new Smartpak saddle pad! It is very durable, easy to clean and looks brand new even after multiple washes. Thanks again Smartpak!
