    Hello there! Recently I purchased a new Mayatex saddle blanket, it isa double size but thin acrylic-polyester blend. It is tightly woven and looks pretty durable, but when I put it on my horse´s back, it doesn´t lie there nice and adapting to the horse´s shape, but with pretty big wrinkles in...

    Hello, i'm new here ^^ Two years ago along with my first horse i bought an used saddle. I was completely inexperienced so i relied on my riding trainer's help and trusted him that the saddle was fitting. Now, my young horse muscles developed, he grew and i dont know if the saddle is 100% good...

    I would like to preface by saying it is NOT a saddle fit issue! The saddle has been checked time and time again and fits perfectly! This problem arose after a year of using a shaped fleece pad for the first year I owned my horse, as per my trainer's preference, but now that I moved to a new...

    I've been looking for an affordable barrel saddle pad, since the one I'm using is pretty old. I know that 5 stars, best ever, and impact gel pads are really nice, but I was looking for one that was a little more affordable. My price range was around $100- $200 ish. I've seen saddle pads from...
  7. Saddle Fitting Issues
    I just got a new mare 2 weeks ago and my old saddle is too wide for her. I was wondering what I should do to make it fit her. Should I get a new saddle pad and if so what kind of saddle pad. Or should I get a saddle shim or get a saddle blanket and put if over the saddle pad I have now?

    Hello! I was given a saddle when I started leasing my horse, however it doesn't fit her correctly. The bars are too wide causing a great deal of pressure on top of her shoulder and almost no contact near the bottom of the bars. It also tips forward pretty easily. Problem is I don't have the...

    This saddle seems to be semi-quarter horse bars. It does not have a brand on it. Hoping to get some advise on whether it fits my horse or not and also the saddle pad to me seems to big, would like some comments on that as well if I should get a smaller size and thinner pad. Thanks so much in...

    Hi! So this evening, I'm bringing my horse to a schooling show (waredaca). I want to use the saddle pad that I won at MCTA (It's currently my only white one), but I lost it until now, so I haven't been able to use it. I can't ride before this evening, but I'm worried it might be slippery, since...

    Hi Everyone! I am looking to find a new pad for my barrel horse and have unfortunately come to a stopping point. I am stuck in between getting the 5 Star 100% Wool Felt Barrel Racer Saddle Pad, Full or Impact Gel Contour Underlayment Pad - Black Felt I do understand that the Underlayment pad...

    What colour saddle pad do you think would look good on an all black horse? I was thinking of getting a hunter green saddle pad. But what do you guys think? Have any photos of black horses and their pads??

    My horse is obsessed with Pizza. He absolutely loves it. I made him a sculpture of him eating it he loves it so much. Where can I get a Pizza pattern saddle pad? I told you it was a weird question! I don't want to spend an arm and a leg. I want something english. Either dressage or AP doesn't...

    I read a few old threads on other forums that recommended using a damp chamois cloth under saddle pads to prevent them from slipping. For those who have done this, I have a few questions for you: 1. Do I need the leather or normal chamois? 2. What size do you use, or cut it down to? Thank you!
  15. Saddle Fitting Issues
    Hello- I am looking for saddle & girth recommendations that will help me relieve pressure points & his overall soreness. He has a short back with a forward girth-line & he slopes up near the croup. The spot that appears low behind the withers may be atrophied from pain, but we're not 100%...

    I have a 14hh POA who I can NOT find a decent western saddle pad for. The horse-sized ones cover up his whole dang back, but the 24x24 pony pads are, for one thing, very scarcely decent quality (most of them are obnoxiously colored, 3 inch thick fleece pads... ugh..), and secondly look kind of...

    My horse has very high withers and almost no muscle around them. He is high-low but has a pad on his shoe to fix it but hasn't been gaining muscle. What kind of saddle pad should I be using? What thickness? Please help. Don't want my baby uncomfortable. Thank you. (By the way he's a 16hh Bay...

    I recently bought a dressage pad with gel that has "Henri De Rivel" written on the side of it. For the life of me, I cannot find that same pad anywhere? I am doubting now that it is a pad actually made my HDR, but am just casually curious if anyone else has heard of this pad before? It is black...
