Manufacturer: JPC Equestrian
Model: JPC Polo Club Number 3 A/P Saddle Pad
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: LA Saddlery in Burbank, CA. It was listed for $29.95, and I had a 20% discount that I used to purchase it. It was my first saddle pad, I got it when I didn't have my pony, mainly because it was my favorite color: magenta.

Likes: The color, the nice thick cushy foam padding (it doubles nicely as an exercise mat at home for me-- after it's been laundered! My pony's nickname from my dad is "Sweaty Freddy", with good reason!), and... that's about it.

Dislikes: Oh boy , where do I begin... after I used it about THREE times, without ever washing it (because I used a bay pad underneath that completely covered the underside), a lot of the stitching just started unraveling from the girth loops, the "3" embroidery, and various other places throughout the pad. While the generously thick foam padding does provide cushioning, it also makes the horse really hot, and frequently the sweat soaks right through the pad to the saddle flaps-- and this is with a (Fleeceworks) baby pad underneath! And what's with the white flannel lining? Can you say "Horsehair, dirt, and even more horsehair?"

Quality: Cotton till shell with flannel lining against horse. Fairly thick layer of foam padding sandwiched between the two. Stitching is VERY poorly done.

Summary: I will never buy any more saddle pads made by JPC Equestrian, whether they are Jaipur Polo Club, Equine Couture, or Tuff Rider. Centaur, Ovation, and Roma are much better pads in the same price range that hold up way better. (And the Roma ones even hide the dirt on the underside-- their lining is brown)
