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'!).

    Union Hill Dressage Pads is rated 4.6087 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps us show up at night! My dark bay with barely a speck of white on her and I perform a vanishing act on other riders in the evenings. I bought this very affordable and nicely constructed pad so we would stand out from the shadows in the dimly lit arena corners. It works great! We show up quite well now according to my fellow riders, and I am very pleased with the overall look and quality of this pad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Saddle Pad! This was my first saddle pad purchase so I celebrated by adding my monogram:) It looks great at a great price too! My only disappointment with the pad is that it is 100% polyester; I had thought it was a 50/50 blend with cotton. Consequently, it doesn't breath as well. Also, size-wise, it could have been longer along the topline to accommodate a larger saddle. But the sides are almost too long and almost conflicts with the girth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pad for the price! I just bought this pad because it was cheaper, however it is a very well made. I use it at least 3 times a week and it washes out great! I definitely would recommend this pad, can't beat the price or quality! Thanks smartpak for as usual never letting me down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality for the price I bought two of these pads, one black one white and am delighted with both ! Their quality & price make this a great buy! I would definitely buy them again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I bought it a month ago along with a more expensive pad to show with. Turns out this pad is even better and less than half the price of the other one! Love the brand and it's quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from seems durable and well made Bought several of these for embroidering my logo on. Super nice pad for the price, seems just heavy enough and a good size. Wish it came in some more colors but really nice practical pad! Seems durable but haven't washed yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic pad I bought this pad a few weeks ago, and I love it. It's very good quality and the quilted stitching helps the pad keep its shape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Saddle Pad! I have had this saddle pad for four months and have used it every. single. day. Six days a week, sometimes even more.It washes amazingly. The best pad for schooling

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits, Rides, Cleans Great! I love this pad so much! It contours very well to my horse's back and is a great weight so it doesn't rub or slip around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like a much more expensive pad I ordered this pad a while ago but just finally took it out of the plastic for a show. I didn't have huge expectactions given the price, but it is beautiful and looks like something that would cost far more. I haven't washed it yet, so I can't speak to it's durability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saddle Pad For the price, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, but this saddle pad exceeded my expectations! I bought it because I needed a white dressage pad to show in. It is very well made, and thick in the wither area. I am very glad I bought this, and will be ordering a black one soon. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing price, Amazing quality! I bought this saddle pad because one of my more expensive ones (from Dover) was rubbing the hair on my mare's back. I wanted a cheap one that would last for a while. I have had it for over six months now, I have used it 4-6 days a week, and it looks brand new when it comes out of the wash and has absolutely no wear or tear to it. My only complaint would be that it only comes in a few colors!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous quality, especially for the price! I bought this pad because it was the right size for my saddle. I was not expecting to be as impressed with it as I have been! The fabric is lovely, and it is nice and thick. I really appreciate the extra padding around the withers, as my horse is a thoroughbred and can be prone to rubs on his withers. Honestly, this pad is just as nice as some twice the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice pad, nice price I ordered three with the free personalization offer, and was very pleased with the results. The embroidery was well done, and the pads had a good drop to fit the length of a dressage saddle flap. Very nice!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad! Love this pad - exactly what I was looking for! I needed a decent pad, on the thin side for use under my large Mattes pad - this is perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Everyday Pad Love this pad! It's perfect for daily use under a sheepskin half pad

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice idea but poor product I needed a thin dressage pad and got these pads for Christmas and they seemed nice at the beginning but after the first (and only) washing the thread on the quilting came apart. Returned ASAP but still waiting for my money back...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just one wish I love this pad! I just wish that the velcro straps were a bit longer. I cannot use them with my dressage saddle...cutting them off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pad! This dressage pad, with its customization is just perfect. They are padded well, Fit my saddle thats a 17inch seat amazingly. I use it only for dressage shows and it is comfortable and grabs attention with my horse's name on it in red.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs big I purchased a couple of these, but ended up giving them away. The pad is good quality, but was too big on my 16.1 Dutch gelding and started rubbing the hair off behind the saddle. The problem went away when I switched saddle pads. However, I gave them to someone with a bigger horse, and she's had great luck with these pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks much most expensive than it was! Very nice quality. Very amply sized. Fit with lots of space my 18 inch no name dressage saddle. The straps are of very high quality with very nice velcro closures.Very pleased. If you need a pad buy one if these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great pad! I'm a show jumper, but I bought this pad to use with my dressage saddle when I school and I love it! For the price, this pad is great quality. Doesn't hold moisture in, looks high quality. It fits my 17.1h TB perfectly, but seems a little big on my 16h TB. But for schooling purposes, it's perfect. Overall, great pad!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle Pad! I was surprised at the quality of this saddle pad when I got it. It is thick and fits my horse really well. I haven't washed it yet, but I am guessing that it will do just fine. Many of my friends use Union Hill pads and love them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great dressage pad for the price This is an excellent buy, especially if you are looking to buy larger quantities of pads. Medium thickness, looks like it will hold up and works great with a correction pad on top. I love the free embroidery with the barn shipping. It's a great item to buy in bulk for all of your students to market you wherever you go!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality pad I bought this pad because I have the same brand but as an all-purpose. It is great, and not too big for a smaller horse. I have only used it a few times but the all-purpose has held up nicely even after washing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect-ness :) This dressage pad is the best I have ever purchased. after probably 100 washes it hasn't faded or even started falling apart. Hair brushes right of for those Pony Club turn-backs and it keeps it's shape after washing. I use mine for schooling and schooling shows. LOVE IT!p.s. not the best picture of us, but that's the pad!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great schooling pad! I ordered a few of these as light schooling pads. I use a half pad between my saddle and the pad for extra cushioning (my standard thing to do). The pads hold up well to washing but like a previous review said, the black marks from my boots and saddle don't come out. The drop length is plenty long enough for my monoflap saddle. And the embroidery is gorgeous! Definitely a great schooling pad for the money!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from excellent fit with my dressage saddle The fit is the best fit I have found with my saddle. After washing it does not shrink if you follow directions. Other pads I have owned shrink and fade after numerous washes. Was very pleased with the personal embroidery I ordered.My only complaint would be you can not use chlorine bleach to retain whiteness. Boot marks will stain black. Not removable even with the use of a stain remover, dirt on the underside will not come out with a normal wash & a good detergent. Not recommended for show. Material is not moisture wicking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value in a dressage pad Could be a little bit thicker, but at this price it's a good everyday pad with a sheepskin pad under the saddle.Nice enough to go to shows, too.Can't comment on durability yest as haven't washed but once. Did not shrink.
