"I am so thrilled with SaddleRight pads! I have been having to cinch my horses in half and move my saddles up their backs frequently through out my rides because my saddles that fit, wouldn’t stay in position. Once i started using SaddleRight pads, none of that has been done! It’s amazing how they stay where they’re supposed to and i have zero back soreness. I am a true believer in SaddleRight Pads!"

"Over the years I’ve tried many different pads. Pads made from just about every type of material you can think of. Pads filled with just about every substance you can think of. None of them gave me what I was looking for. Some would compress after a while and others just didn’t work. What I was looking for was a pad that didn’t compress, didn’t interfere with my saddle fit, was thin enough to let me feel my horse and most of all, a pad that my horse liked and not only worked well in, but one I could feel he was comfortable working in too. I had just about given up and was about to settle for what was out there when I discovered SaddleRight Pads. The very first time I roped on my good horse using the SaddleRight Pad, I knew I had the pad I had been looking for.
When I put my saddle on my horse with the pad on, I liked what I saw immediately. I knew my saddle fit my horse well and the pad didn’t interfere with my saddle fit at all. While riding my horse, right away I felt a difference in not only how my horse moved, but how I could feel my horse move. The pad didn’t interfere with the connection I had with my horse at all, it only enhanced it. My horse was moving freely in the pad, so the big test was how he was going to work in it. I roped about six to eight steers that first day and he felt more relaxed and comfortable on each steer. Three of my four requirements were met on the first day. As for the compressing, I can tell you that after a year’s use on many different horses and literally a few thousand steers roped, my pad not only looks new still, there is absolutely zero compression. While other pads compress, shift around and change how the saddle fits your horse, I can tell you that after a year’s use this is the same pad I put on my horse over a year ago.
I have four rope horses of my own and take in horses to train for roping and the only pad I will use is on any of these horses is a SaddleRight pad."

“I got my first SaddleRight pad when I was 12 years old. That pad has now traveled with me coast to coast and been a part of my winning combination with countless horses. If you are looking for a pad that not only properly works with and supports your horse, but a pad that will out last any on the market, well look no further.”

SaddleRight would like to take this opportunity to welcome Kaycee Hollingback to our SaddleRight Performance Team. Kaycee is currently a student at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma. She studies for a degree in health and human performance.
Kaycee hails from Wilburton, Oklahoma and started roping at the age of nine. She has climbed the ladder of success through the ranks of NLBRA, OYRA, Oklahoma Junior High School Rodeo and the NHSRA. She competed in goat tying and break away.
In 2020 Kaycee was the Champion Breakaway Roper at the prestigious $1 million American rodeo in Arlington, Texas. She bested a field of 450 runs recently to achieve the 2021 Reserve Champion Breakaway title at the $1 Million American.
Keeping her horse feeling great and performing well is a priority for Kaycee and we were happy to help her out. We recently asked her how the pad was performing for her. She commented that her horse was running stronger to the calves, with better freedom of movement. We will continue to follow her and cheer her on as she moves towards her goal of making it to the NFR in the breakaway.

“She has three horses that she is competing on this year across the nation, and absolutely loves her SaddleRight saddle pads. Shelby has had problems with saddles rolling with previous pads even though her saddles fit her horses correctly. Once she started using SaddleRight pads, the rolling has stopped and her saddle stays exactly where she placed it when she cinched up. There is no more constant un cinching and re cinching while moving the pad to where it should sit on her horse. Her horses do not have any back soreness, and the pad stays up off their shoulders allowing them to have free range of motion. These pads are a big part of why her horses are competing at the top of their game. “
"My name is Kera Lamb, I am 19 and currently a freshman at WCJC where I compete at the collegiate level in rodeo. I compete in Team roping and Breakaway. I love SaddleRight because it stays in place. No matter what I'm doing it doesn’t move. I can be working cows all day in it and it does it’s job all day long!! Whatever I use it for and whoever I put it on, my pad always gets the job done !!
This year I’ve placed at multiple college rodeos in both my events. I haven’t been going to as many rodeos this year due to horses issues. I am finally back on track with them and hope to hit a lot more rodeos!
In the future I want to obtain my pro card and go hard and try to win rookie of the year. I also want to make the NFR!"

SaddleRight saddle pads provide close feel, support, versatility, and style to your horse in whichever discipline you choose to ride in.
“Many years ago, I had the privilege of having Dr. Michael Freeman adjust and balance my horses; based on that experience, I was happy to try a product he developed through his many years of treating performance horses.
Because my horses’ well being is my primary concern, Saddle Right Orthopedic Saddle Pads have been a key piece of my equipment almost from the company’s beginning thirty years ago. Through decades of use on the road as a professional barrel racer and roper, I can honestly say I’ve never had a concern over my saddle pad. Sore backs are non-existent in my world!
Saddle Right pads meet all my needs and wants—they protect my horse, allowing circulation and free movement in the muscle groups; they come in a variety of colors to suit my preference for something flashy and attractive; and, best of all, they are extremely durable. I’m still using pads bought decades ago because the inner material never compresses or loses shape.”

When Crickets Peppy Zan, or "Zan", came into my life in the fall of 2006 I ran barrels but not seriously. I had a dream to run barrels and win but didn't feel like I had a horse to go on. God had better plans and the rest history. I can't say that I knew what I was doing, Zan was easy to train. I have no doubts that God heard my prayers early on in my life and brought Zan into my life for a reason.
Over the next few years many of my dreams have come true, due primarily to God and His goodness and a little sorrel firecracker of a horse named Zan.
I've had several different saddles and saddle pads over the years and while I liked them I found dry spots or felt like my horse wasn't moving quite as free as need be. I've had trouble with one horse in particular being bound up in her shoulders. No matter if I changed saddles or pads I never got the result I was looking for. I saw a marked difference in her movement after using the Saddle Right saddle pads so I tried it on my other horses as well. I ride a lot of different style of horses from short, wide calf roper types to tall, leggy, thoroughbred horses. I like that this pad helps my saddle fit them all. I don't get dry spots and I feel like it allows more freedom of movement.
“I use my SaddleRight saddle pad on a daily basis. It stays where I put it and doesn’t move, sits my horses well and allows their shoulders to move more freely. It’s a great combination of style in the arena yet holds up to the hard work of picking up broncs, dragging bulls at rodeos the everyday cowboy work that I do. In my opinion it’s the best pad going for nearly any job an equestrian could do."

I’m Pecos Winters from Texline, TX. Growing up I always knew I wanted to cowboy and rodeo for a living. We had a rodeo company that my family started the year I was born, so there was never a time I remember not being around rodeo. I first started picking up broncs when I was 11 years old, then picked up for my dad for four years until we sold out in 2010. I kind of put picking up on the back burner at this time, focusing more on roping until in 2016, I finally got my chance to start picking up again at rodeos. Since that year, I’ve just went up and done more every year. Last year, I bought my pro card, which allowed me to work bigger rodeos with more exposure. I moved to South Dakota, where I was blessed with getting voted to pickup the Minnesota Rodeo Association Finals. I’m hoping this year is even better than years past, getting more rodeos and hopefully getting to go back to the finals again.
