I recently purchased my SaddleRight Western Square Deluxe pad used from another member of the local NBHA community and, despite having been used regularly for a few years, I was extremely impressed with the condition of the pad and the lack of normal physical wear and tear. After purchasing my Martin Crown C last spring and having to go for a larger 8” gullet (since my boy Gibson is very thickly built) I struggled to find the perfect pad. I purchased and used a 1” 5star for the majority of the season, ended up shimming it half way through the summer and started regular massage therapy to address the soreness in Gibby’s back. Coming into the 2020 season, I began looking for something different and found SaddleRight pads. I was very excited to try the pad based on the fascinating concept and positive reviews, especially those from other barrel racers/polebenders, and I am very happy with my choice. After the first few rides during which I poked around at home, I was very pleased with how the pad kept the saddle in place even though I forgot to tighten my cinch prior to mounting as well as the amount of clearance that was maintained under the gullet. I wasn’t able to really ride hard in the pad until this past weekend when I spent 3 days with small group of friends riding with an experienced former cutter. I was very pleased with the sweat marks and I have not observed any stiffness or soreness through his back despite the 3 days of hard work and being out of shape coming out of winter. I even got the chance to watch our cutter friend ride Gibson and keep him in beautiful form while I looked on and searched for any movement in the saddle and saw absolutely none. I am very excited to continue using my Western Square Deluxe pad and Gibby and I look forward to a great season and a soft, happy back.

I’ve been using Saddleright pads for about two years now. Before that I tried just about every other big name brand pad out there for my overly sensitive mare. Most were either too bulky or just did not fit right. My mare was one to tell you very clearly when something didn’t work for her. We finally decided to purchase a few Saddleright pads. Needless to say we haven’t gone back! She loves them and the colts love them! They fit perfectly and not only that they are durable as heck! I’ve had two pads that I’ve used daily and still look brand new! I don’t think we will ever go back to anything else!

I love using my SaddleRight pad to start my young horses. It allows them to move freely in their shoulders, feel my legs to understand what I’m asking, gives their spine and withers relief, and their muscles along their back room to grow and function without being obstructed by my saddle pad. With my SaddleRight pad, there is no fussing with it to make sure it fits properly, or that it’s going to slide back, or that I’m going to have to move it to fit them. These pads naturally fall into the correct place they need to sit once I set them on my horses, young and old. I love my SaddleRight pads, and I can’t wait until I get to purchase a new one. Thank you for creating such a quality pad!

I freaking love my SaddleRight pad and how it fits him with my saddle!
My horse always has issues with back soreness. I even tried 3/4” or 7/8” or even 1” and nothing worked until I met a dealer of Saddleright and bought one from him. My horse is completely changed, he runs and turns way better! Never having back sore again!

I have been a Saddleright user for about 20 years. I have two that have been with me for at least 15 years and one of them I bought used. The one I bought used I have used everyday on several horses and it has held up great. I power wash it about twice a year. My nicer ones I always use a liner and they still look brand new. We love them and so do our horses.

By far the best saddle pad I've invested in!!

I absolutely love this pad. It works great with all my horses. This is the only pad I use on my mare, she's a little more flat backed and every saddle fits her amazingly well with my SaddleRight Pad. I've tried other pads and SaddleRight pads are the best!

I highly recommend this saddle pad!!

I spent YEARS riding other high end saddle pads and swearing by them, but I started to notice some areas of atrophy and imperfections in my current horse that just weren’t right. After some saddle fit trial and error, I realized that the saddle wasn’t the problem and my other pads were too thick and didn’t provide any spinal relief amongst other issues. SaddleRight pads were recommended to me by a close friend. I was optimistic, loved the color options and wither relief, so I took the plunge. Now, after a few months in my SaddleRight, it’s safe to say I’m NEVER going back to anything else! My horses topline looks amazing, my saddle stays snug and after every ride there are perfectly even sweat marks and a dry line all the way down his spine. All this in a beautiful light weight design, custom made to order with a fantastic warranty and great company that really backs their product! Thank you SaddleRight!!

I love my SaddleRight pad! My gelding needed a pad that came down farther below the rigging and Saddleright was the only brand that delivered! I love the durability, longevity, weight distribution, and the variety of colors and styles available!

I am more than thrilled with my purchase of a SaddleRight pad, I regret not trying one sooner! My mare is wide and I mean WIDE, I had issues for years now finding the right pad/cinch combo and always was dealing with my saddle rolling with my treeless saddle. This was my last attempt before looking into a new treed saddle, which I really didn’t want to do. This past weekend we ran our fastest time together and I felt so stable and secure without jacking my cinch so tight. My horse was much happier to be saddled and these pictures speak for themselves! Thank you for a great pad and I cannot wait to order another!

Solo is a 24 year old barrel horse who has been using a SaddleRight pad for about the past 10 years. He still loves his job and we don’t see him slowing down anytime soon! Part of what keeps him feeling so strong is his Saddle Right pad! Chiropractors, massage therapists, and vets, cannot believe the condition his body is in. His back actually has the least amount of issues! Thank you Saddle Right for continuing to protecting our older boy out in the arena!

I just wanted to say that I had actually never heard of your saddle pad before I went to the bonus race world finals a couple of weeks ago. But I had been in the market for a nice pad. I did some research. Liked what I was finding out so I bought one. My horse was struggling to get around the barrels. Blowing past them like she couldn’t get her body to work right. I put this pad on her and we have consistently had several VERY nice runs in a row. I have to think that somehow her saddle pad is contributing to that in some degree. Just wanted to take a moment and brag and let you know I really like my pad and so thankful I saw them when I did.

Hey y’all! I recently bought a SaddleRight pad, I rode in it for the first time last night and just want to say how much I love it. It’s super light weight and not thick and bulky like the other pads I used to use. I sold all my other pads, including 5 stars, to get this and couldn’t be happier. It looks fantastic on my mare. I love the wither clearance it gives my mare. I’ve recommended SaddleRight to all my friends that don’t have one. Thanks for making a great pad!!
