This pad is hands down the most amazing pad I’ve ever tried. I’ve been through a lot of pads, from 5 Star to CSI. From now, forward I will only choose SaddleRight! The horse pictured is only going on 4 years old, and was having an unknown shoulder lameness issue, other pads where just too thick, created pressure points, and let the saddle roll and sit down in his shoulders, he’s still growing so it is extremely important to take care of his back now more than ever. The first ride with my SaddleRight, he was immediately more comfortable! Now he doesn’t limp at all, trots bigger, lopes comfortably on both leads, and is all together happier and easier to train. I cannot say enough good about these pads!! My older horse has also benefited from the use of this pad. No saddle slippage, like every other pad created, he’s much more comfortable under saddle, and his back is filling out. We need another 1 or 2 of these pads at the barn to go under every saddle of the horses we ride per day. My boyfriend is really wanting one as well!
