I have two pads. First one is at least 16 years old. Still in great condition. The top has even been wet due to roof leaking in trailer and still looks and works great. The second pad is 3-4 years old. I have 6 horses. I need a few more. I have had or have every kind of pad and this pad by far is my favorite. It makes the saddle fit better than any of my other expensive pads. It’s my go too. Should of spent the money on this brand instead of others. The others are good but this far outdoes any other brand.
