Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I ordered this pad over the internet on Saddleright's website. I paid $300 with shipping

Likes: The color is beautiful and the construction seems to be ok, although it is a heavy stiff pad.

Dislikes: This pad created a huge bare spot which eventually turned white after 5 days of riding in it. I purchased it in the fall and only got a couple short rides on it so I couldn't really judge it effectively in that time period. The bare spots were in an odd spot below the saddle tree and seemed to be cause by heat. I contacted the seller of the pad and described the problem and he said sorry you experienced problems, and nothing more. He does NOT stand behind his product at all.

Quality: Seems to be made nicely, but the felt on the bottom is very very thin and whatever is on the inside of the pad does NOT allow the back to breathe which is what I figure caused the odd worn bare spot. I will add here that I worked extensively with my saddle maker and fitter to make sure this wasn't a saddle problem. We finally swapped to a different pad and experienced no more welts, dry spots, wear spots, hot spots etc.

Summary: This pad is probably a good pad for someone who isn't going to ride more than a half hour or hour or so at a time. Any longer than that and you'll probably experience the same. Its stiff and does not allow the tree to sit properly on the back of the horse. You'll probably experience that saddle tipping problem like I did, which disappeared with a plain felt pad the exact same thickness.
