Just a short note to let you folks know you saved one of my penning horses. He had developed a pull back problem while being saddled. It was really getting old, putting up with this nonsense. After trying thick, thin, and everything in between pads, I bought one of yours. WOW, what a difference! Each time I saddled him up with the SaddleRight pad he had less and less anxiety. After about 8 saddlings, he doesn't even move and his performance is better also. We also put the pad on my wife's penner and he performed better. We could really tell on him, because we had to ride him in a penning with out the pad. We are now waiting for the second pad for her horse to arrive. Thanks again from myself, my wife, and OUR HORSES.
I was first introduced to this pad some 30 years ago at the Badlands Circuit Finals. I as lucky enough to win a certificate for most of one. I now own four of them. I have used them extensively for about 30 years as our interests have changed from barrel racing. team penning, endurance, packing, and the last ten years mounted shooting, in which my mounts Frosty and Jewel have won me numerous world championships. I have truly tested them out and never had a sore horse. There's no better pad!
Yes, feel free to use my Saddleright brag. They are absolutely the best saddle pads I’ve ever used. I don’t want any pressure on the wither area, and it’s so important to have the saddle and rider weight distribution done correctly the way the Saddleright pad is designed to do. The pad on White Collar Corona is the old style, which is great. I’m planning to add one of the new styles soon. Thank you for a really great product with so much research behind it.
I am a firm believer in a good pad. When my gelding kept getting a back sore, I went in search of a quality pad. I bought an expensive “orthopedic “pad and actually made him sorer. Again, I went in a search. Mind you it was 1998 or 1999, so there wasn’t a lot of info. I found SaddleRight by chance, but was having a hard time financially to spend that much for a pad. My mom floated me a loan. I bought the barrel saddle cut pad with felt outer shell. My boy started running his little heart out. We were a local 1D and at big shows he was 2D/3D. I won a lot of money and buckles on him. The rest is history. I have since sold that pad, but it is still being used. I now have four, mom have three, and my daughter-in-law has two. Even when someone else rides my horses the pad goes on them. Mom’s horse was a Peruvian Paso and he was built different then our quarter horses. Her saddle never slipped or made him sore. After one run she come out of the arena and her cinch was so loose you could see daylight. I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
I just wanted to say that I love my SaddleRight pads. They keep my horse comfortable on our several mile trail rides. We can cover some ground! Plus, I just love the simple, no bulk design. They wear like leather and the color options are endless! Some saddle pads have come and gone, but SaddleRight has remained a constant in my tack room.
Look who's new pad just came in from SaddleRight. This company continues to impress me. I custom ordered this pad less than a week ago and it's already HERE! Maroon on Possum is going to look awesome! It never gets old riding with a SaddleRight pad! Thanks for the excellent service and product that you can trust to keep your horses' backs sound!
Thanks so much for reaching out on my Instagram page, I’m such a huge fan of your saddle pads!
I have a well made, good fitting saddle, but I was having some trouble with my saddle shifting during a barrel run and always thought that my felt pad created too much space between my horse and I. I wanted closer contact and a lower profile fit for my rig. I’d heard great things about Saddleright pads and decided to give one a try. Since then I’ve never been happier with how freely my horse moves in my saddle or how perfect her sweat marks are since using a Saddleright pad! I get the close contact and feel that I was looking for and my horse looks and feels great. Thank you Saddleright for creating such an incredible product!
Absolutely love your pads, they hold up wonderfully and fit a variety of horses and saddles… I'm really excited to get a new one this year for my young filly I'll be starting. Thanks for making such a terrific product!
I had a horse that was injured and had muscle atrophy in her left shoulder. Due to the muscle atrophy I was having a horrible time getting a saddle to stay in the center of her and therefore my mare was getting sore and I was rolling around on top of her. I researched saddle pads, tried several high dollar pads and even changed saddles. Nothing was helping. I reached out to SaddleRight pads to talk to them about their product, their research and the thought process behind their pads. Never one to blindly buy a pad, I borrowed an English/round cut SaddleRight pad from a friend of mine. After the first use I found that my saddle was no longer sliding around and I was able to sit up and ride my mare. This in turn helped keep my mare from getting sore after every run. I love my pad and am thankful I was able to find something that worked for my mare and for me!
I started using SaddleRight over a year ago and they have exceeded my expectations. Not only do they fit all my horses great, but they’re also a game changer for a horse that is hard to fit for a saddle. One of my favorite things about these pads is how well they clean up. Every time I wash them, it’s like I have a brand new pad. I will forever be a SaddleRight user!
I have been on the fence about a SaddleRight pad for two years now! After trying multiple pads of top quality, costing the same amount as a SaddleRight, I was just not happy. I wanted a pad that was small, but still offered the drop far enough on the sides to cover the rigging of my Bob Marshall Barrel saddle. Since I ride in a treeless saddle it is very important that your pad offers spinal clearance. SaddleRight not only offers spinal clearance, but it spreads the weight out evenly over the horses back. It is not bulky, not over weight, and it’s not HUGE either. I have the All Around Barrel model at 28” down the spine with a width of 32” (not the treeless model, because I barrel race so I wanted the smallest pad possible; a close fit all around my saddle) . I LOVE IT! My horse moves so well in the shoulders and hips now, because of the slits this pad has to accommodate those areas. It’s worth every penny. My saddle is a 14.5” Barrel model by Bob Marshall.
