For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Equipedic
Model: Endurance Pad
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I have recently changed to a treeless saddle and went in search for a compatible pad. After seeking advise and searching many sites and reading many reviews, I chose to purchase an Equipedic Endurance Pad. It claims to have an impact reduction material,to increase oxygen, cool a horse in summer, warm a horse in cooler temperatures, and is antibacterial, anti fungal and anti-slip.

Likes: The colour selection of this pad is good, and the website offered a ton of information on the pads, and other good saddling tips.

Dislikes: As soon as I took the pad out of the box I could see major flaws. The center line was stitched crooked and off center causing the heavy center seam to sit right over the horses spine and on one of the side foam panels. The left pocket for the foam insert was stitched more than 1" tighter than the right causing the foam pad to pucker. This pad will never see my horses back.

Quality: The pad has huge potential to be as good as advertised. Nice heavy wool felt bottom and good cordora top. It is also designed to be machine washable, and has good strapping to secure it to the saddle. However due to the uneven stitching there is no way to achieve a balanced ride.

Summary: If this pad was stitched straight and even it might have the potential to being a good pad, but I have trouble trusting a company that does not have a system of quality control to make sure that products with flaws as obvious as these, don't make it out of there plant, and to the end user.
