    How to measure:

    To determine the appropriate back size of your pad, measure your saddle at the longest points.  Front edge of skirt to back edge of skirt.  Take that measurement and add 4 inches:

          A saddle length of 25 +4 inches, means you will need to order a 29.

          A saddle length of 26.5 inches round up to 27 + 4 inches to require a 31 back.

    Our standard drop is 32 inches and accommodates most all saddles. 

    Saddles with a dropped style rigging system or flat plate rigging system will require a 34 or 36 inch drop to fit properly.

5/5

It was a joy doing business with. The representative I talked with knew her product, helped us decide what were the right pads for our Special Riders program and our horses. Shipping was fast. I personally have one of the pads that I've had for 15 years and it has held up with minimal wear and tear. Definitely would do business with them again
