Purchase: I recently purchased the Nunn Finer No Slip Pad. There are different sizes of this item. The one I bought is the English version and measures 17" X 21". I made my purchase from Rose Hollow Tack Shop in Conroe, TX.. With tax included I paid just a little over $24.00. I bought the No Slip Pad because I could not seem to keep a saddle pad in place on my high withered(Is there any other kind!) thoroughbred. Between the ski slope withers and deep hollows on each side nothing stays put. Even my tacky backed bareback saddle slides around.
Likes: I had initially borrowed one of these pads from a friend and loved it. I thought I was being cost efficient buy purchasing a less expensive version made by another company. I was disappointed though and ended up buying the Nunn Finer No Slip Pad that I had been so impressed with in the beginning. Not very cost efficient considering I ended up paying postage to return the inferior pad. The quality of the material and performance of the Nunn Finer pad can't be beat. It is very thin so it doesn't add any bulk. This is important to me because I don't want to over-pad in the wither area. This pad works under my dressage saddle and under my bareback saddle. No bunching up, hair matting or excessive sweating.
Dislikes: I'm very happy with this product and I can't find fault with it. It does what it's supposed to do.
Quality: The material is very thin but tough. I thought it didn't seem like it would hold up very long but I was wrong. It's very strong and easy to clean as well. I've had the pad about 2 1/2 months and it still looks new. I share this pad with another rider. She trains 3 other horses at the facility where we board. It comes in handy by providing stability of her saddles on an assortment of horses. This anti-slip pad is getting a lot off use and still looks great.
Summary: I think this item is something everyone should have in their "tack arsenal". I have always been a big proponent of only natural fibers next to my horse. My new horse has made it necessary to get tough on the no slip issue. Even though this item is synthetic I'm impressed by the quality of the material. I'm really glad to have been introduced to the Nunn Finer No Slip Pad. I think it's adds another level in safety for the rider as well. A lot of "bang for the buck"!
