Question Anyone used this?

I just got it today because I needed a countour saddle pad for an upcoming hunter show...and it apparently has a spot where you can put your number on it. Pretty neat, but I'm wondering, has anyone else used a saddle pad like this before? Have any pics?? I'm curious what it will look like!

My mom uses one of them on her horse. They are not the best of quality, but as long as you keep it clean and take care of it they are pretty nice. =]

Ditto - had a student with one and it was fine for schooling shows. Wouldn't use for rated though.

That is about the only type of pad used at Paint, Quarter Horse, Pinto, and Appy circuit shows. If you are going to show at that type of show you should purchase one. I am not sure about their use at hunter shows.

This is a better quality version of it than the one you posted.

That is the pad I was going to suggest. The pad in the OP looks cheap/cheesy. I'd rather use just a plain shaped pad and pin the number to my back .

Some others that are good:

Like LauraB said, I think these pads are used primarily for breed shows (and other disciplines I'm sure). I don't see these in the hunter ring and I would suggest exchanging it for a traditional fitted pad. In the hunter ring people usually tie (or sometimes pin) their numbers to their backs. It's more what the judge will be expecting. In fact, at the end of your flat classes you will be asked to line up in the middle of the ring with your back facing the judge so he/she can see your number.

Thanks guys! I have to go back to the tack shop this week anyway because I bought a summer sheet in my horse's size that was HUGE on her! Either it was mismarked or the brand runs BIG! So I have to return that anyway...I think I may return this pad and get just a normal white fitted pad instead, just to be on the safe side!
