Ogilvy Saddle Pads

Anybody have one? Want to share your thoughts?

I'm considering buying one for my high-withered senior TB. No specific issues to speak of but it sounds like these pads make the horse extra comfy.

I'm interested in hearing what people have to say about them too. I don't have one yet, but I have been thinking of buying one soon. The one that I want to get is the Ogilvy Memory Foam Half Pad, in custom colours. They are really popular in Canada right now, a lot of the Grand Prix show jumpers are using them now too, instead of the sheepskin half pads.

My coach has one that she absolutely adores! She says it feels like riding on a nice big puffy cloud, and her horsies like it too. :)

Well I'm going to order one so I will let you know how it goes. They are currently on backorder at dover so I take that as good thing!

Reporting back on my new Ogilvy pad.

I don't think I will ride without one again. Ever.

LOVE it and highly recommend. Absolutely worth every penny.

Happy to hear it's working out well for you!

I've had my eye on them for a while now, but wasn't too sure if I wanted to splurge on one, seeing as though I already own 4 sheepskin half pads. I'm thinking I will probably get one anyway, I like the idea of the memory foam.

Thanks for updating and sharing your thoughts on it!

How would you say they compare to something like a thinline?
    04-30-2012, 06:31 PM
I've never used a thinline, so I can't really compare. I like it better than sheepskin half pads though. And I can say that there was a noticeable difference in my horse. It took less time to warm up her back. The foam compresses to a very thin layer on the pressure points and is not bulky in that way at all.

Hmmmmm I wonder.. i'm a huge thinline fan (i have three) and after riding with one of those swore to never ride without again and I haven't! Haha

Thank you for sharing about these. Maybe I can get my hands on one somewhere and see what it's all about. I'm leery of buying something I haven't seen in person first.

Crimson if you were closer I would let you try mine! =)

If I get my hands on a thinline I will definitely let you know.
