I got the pad a couple of weeks ago and have put quite a bit of use on it. It has done exactly what I had hoped it would do. My horse had developed a very slight amount of atrophy on his left side of his back from not working and using that side as much as the other. I would find a dry spot down his back on the left side where the saddle sat after riding. Your pad has resolved this issue and gives my horse comfort, while I work to build his back on the left side to match the right. I am very pleased with the pad and am happy I ordered it.
