Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads
Purchase: I purchased my first one online at www.trumbullmtn.com for $32, then found another dealer, www.bitofstyle.net that sells them for $28. Regina is extremely helpful and will get you anything you want.
Likes: EVERYTHING is lovely about these pads. The shape is perfect, the size is perfect, they are well made and elegant. The straps are just the right size in just the right place. I LOVE my PRI Pads. They are neat and tidy, the cotton is durable but feels fine, not like crappy cotton or canvas, the underneath is brushed soft cotton, I don't know how they do it... honestly, I would like to have a bed made out of these saddle pads. They are lightly foam filled, but its not that thick cheap feeling foam, its just barely there.
Dislikes: There is absolutely nothing I don't like about these pads.
Quality: Extremely high quality. I am not kind to my tack and my horses love to roll in the mud. My snow white dressage pad is my everyday pad and I could show in it tomorrow. It resists stains, its durable, and it magically never wrinkles or looks ragged. I wash my pad twice a month, wring it and then throw it on a fence to dry for a few days, and it looks brand spanking new each time. Even the underside, the soft brushed cotton (I love the brushed cotton!) stays soft and nappy.
Summary: I just discovered they've released just about every color and piping combo under the sun, so I went crazy and have a pad for every day of the week. And they have subtle muted tone colors too, not just crazy pink and green, but sage and mustard and chocolate with contrasting piping. I love love love PRI pads.
