Tacky Too Pad
Western Saddle Fittings/Pads
Model: Tacky Too Pad
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads
Purchase: My wife bought this pad to try out for herself,(me and old Red were the test dummys), After she received it from Jeffers. I believe it was about 57.95.
Likes: This pad had a lot of stick to it, Red seemed to be ok with it, and my heavy roping saddle seemed to fit better. He seemed to enjoy the high whither front and extra pad on the side. I like the control contact feel you get from what ever it is made out of. It seem to make Red more comfortable on the ride 4 times out.
Dislikes: Remember the word (tacky), At a roping one night me an old Red who knows me as I know him ran our first cow of the night. I noticed a little speed hump in his rump during the leaving of the shoot gate in our first run, and made a comment to those around me about how Red had a little more step tonight and hoping he was not reverting to his younger day`s of kicking up his heel`s. Well my second run came about and all was normal in the control room as from my view, as I threw my head rope and drawed up my slack all was fine. until I dalled off and went left when to amazement Red went air born and started bucking with a 800 lb steer in tow and my healer making a strong attempt to heal. After my third time around the arena,(steer still in tow) glancing over left shoulder to my astonishment I noticed we have been bucking for 23.598 secounds (NEW AREANA RECORD) for which I didnt want to win thank you, Along with my healer (Garry)who got tired of chasing and I think he started in in with the crowed shouting (ride him),For which I didn`t want to ride him (I wanted off EASY). After all this and the hoopla of the 23.598 second ride I started checking to see what cause the problem, Remember the word TACKY!!!!(SON this pad is TACKY!!) Old RED`s back looked like a beaver jumped on his back and Nawwed his hair with his teeth and was using hair to build a dam, I Pulled out a hand full hair and lower main from the bottom of the pad. My suggestion is a WARNING LABLE (when pulling steers expect strong traction and possible hair loss, Side affects to include bucking snorting farting and sometimes the feeling the ground is closing in on you fast)
Quality: Construction good and strong cleans easy, Hair removes with wipe of hand or brush WON`T shift around back of horse
Summary: Good pad, My wife said she want`s her`s back (she don`t rope), as always I and old Red had fun trying out this pad. P.S. My healer didn`t catch that darn steer either.
