Smartblue Saddle Pad
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Kensington
Model: Smartblue Saddle Pad
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I needed a square pad to go under my correctional half pad. I bought the smartblue pad from Smartpak for $36.

Likes: The color is great on this pad, and it didn't fade even after being washed multiple times. The material kept my horse cooler than usual.

Dislikes: The billet straps are not long enough to be used with another pad, so the pad slipped some. Even when I rode with just the smartblue pad, it slipped everywhere. Eventually I just had to quit using the pad because of the slipping problem, and as my horse gained weight, all the padding became too much bulk.

Quality: The pad is great quality; it wears very well. The billet straps could be longer, but overall it's a nice pad.

Summary: This pad may be gorgeous, but it doesn't conform to the shape of the horse well. It slips, and if used under another pad, becomes too much padding. This compromises the stability of the saddle.
