I thought I would let you know I have had the chance to ride my “new” horse again with my new pad. I thought he was just ornery and had a lot to learn. Hah. He actually acts like a new horse. He is doing things that I wasn’t able to get him to do before (with the help of my trainer). He sidepasses elegantly on both sides and has more flex than I have ever seen. He’s willing to do what I want and does it. I’ll be ordering another one within the next week for my old and grouchy sweenied horse to be kept here at home for him. He will be another test for the pad. I am truly impressed and will be letting people know. Thanks!
