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!
