LOVE my second pad!, 3/18/2013

Heidi from Lexington, NC

I have a black and white in this pad. The black is for schooling and it has held up very well, no need to wash since it is black and sits on another saddle pad. The white pad is PERFECT for the horse show..I love it. It fit very very well with my 16.5 HDR Advantage saddle. A 16 would probably fit well and a 17 would probably fit but it would be close. It's a great buy for the price...much better than my sheepskin pad I spent way too much money on. My horse didn't act ill when I jumped so I believe it was enough padding under my saddle. I will only use the white for shows so it shouldn't get dirty except on the bottom, which no one sees. My suggestion if you need to wash, soak it and then air dry..it should not shrink much at all if it does shrink, and it won't come apart that way.

Good, but cheap, 11/25/2012

Megan from Ontario

This pad works well and is much more solid than the floppy formless hald pads. I have a 16.5" Wintec 500 A/P and it works fine but it hangs off the edge so I would definately not get this for any bigger of a saddle. The velcro straps are really long which is nice so they will fit pretty much any saddle. The fluffy stuff is starting to look bad and I've had it for less than a month so I wouldn't show in it. I put it in the washing machine after reading the other reviews and I wish I hadn't because it fold in a wierd way now and some white hair was gotten on it so it looks bad, but it still works fine I guess. My OTTB loves it and I have used it every day for a month and it still works fine. If you have a small saddle buy it!

Too Thin, 11/15/2012

KG from Georgia

I would rate this pad a 5 out of 10. Pros: I have had it for over a year, and it has held up well. The looks of the fleece. Cons: The pad is very thin, the picture is deceiving. I would not buy this pad again.

Phenomenal pad for price, 10/10/2012

Emily from Muncie, IN

Just bought one of these used from someone. My horse has a long back and is always sore under the back of my saddle. First time I used this, he had a literal spring his step and hasn't been sore since! Amazing pad at an amazing price!

Excellent Pad For the $, 8/10/2012

AH from NC

This pad has stood up to over a year of use now, and is still going strong! I do have a couple of issues with it, which I will get to in a moment, but this is a good, thick, sturdy pad. And although it says washing isn't recommended, I have washed mine several times and it looks just fine. The white is extremely difficult to keep clean, more so on the non-fleece parts. I feel it gets dirty faster than other half-pads I've had, but it gives such good cushion and shock absorption I can put up with it. I plan on getting black soon, so that will be a non-issue. It does run small. My 16.5" squishes down the fleece on the back just a bit, but it's fairly conformed to the shape of my saddle at this point. I will say that after I started using this pad, my mare seemed to dislike my old half pad! Her approval is all I care about, so I'll stick with these.

Love it!, 7/17/2012

Jena from Jacksonville, NC

I have a wintec 17" saddle and it fits just right! My horse has wide withers and a round back. It's hard to fit a saddle on her without it slipping. This pad has helps to keep my saddle stay put without having to cinch the girth so tight. However, if my saddle even a 1/2" longer this pad would be too small. I would not recommend this if you have a saddle longer than 17". The quality is outstanding and the price is very reasonable.

LOVE this pad!!, 7/6/2012

Heidi from Lexington, NC

This pad looks GREAT with my saddle!! My saddle is a 16.5 and fits perfect, I wouldn't go bigger than a 17 inch though, or don't be surprised if your 17 or 17.5 doesn't fit..the 17 will be very close. BUT back to what I love about it. It looks very nice under my saddle, gave lots of padding for the horse and would be great for showing. I bought the black to use at the barn so I don't have to wash it (apparently people have had bad experiences with these when it came time to wash them)...but I do plan to get a white one to show in so my fleeceworks pad doesn't wear out, possibly! I say buy this, it's great, especially for schooling, even for showing (white). Get the black if you're really worried about the bad reviews saying it doesn't hold up after being washed, that way you won't see how dirty it gets.

Wish it Fit, 6/5/2012

Sid from RI

I bought this because of the price and the great ratings and decent quality. I wasn't looking for anything too fancy b/c huntseat isn't my main discipline, but I wanted something to get the saddle off my horse's back for when I do ride huntseat. But the reviews weren't lying when they said it's best for smaller saddles. It did not fit my 17.5". Will be returning and buying another brand that has actual sizing options!

Two rides and one wash later, it's still stuck to the sides of my washer.. will never buy again. It was great until I washed it, but it really didn't hold up well under two rides (30 minutes w/t/c)

Awesome! And Fluffy!, 9/6/2011

Charlie from Gainesville, FL

I'd been looking for a half pad for months, trying to find something that would give some more padding without making the area under my saddle too narrow. This pad is PERFECT. It feels as nice as some of the ones in the $100 range. It's rather thick around the edges but not too thick underneath the saddle. My mare's sweat pattern is now perfect (HUGE round QH, hollows behind her shoulders now due to old age make saddle fitting a challenge). Since using this pad she's been more free in her shoulder movement and doesn't get a sore back, even after a long ride. I bought this half a year ago and it's holding up great! My saddle is a 16" and people on here have said it won't fit large saddles. I could see where this would be true, as it fits my smaller seat size like a glove.

Way too small, 9/4/2011

Review from IA

This was too small for my 16.5 saddle!!! The wither on it was way too high for my low withered horse, and made it fit badly under my saddle. I really wish it would've worked because it was very soft and foamy and great quality.

Its ok but..., 7/25/2011

Jessica from CA

It doesn't fit a 17.5 saddle at all and causes pinching on my horses back because of this. I have a TB with large withers and it really didnt do much for him but on a "normal" withered QH it is amazing. I would recommend it to somone who has a smaller saddle and a horse with lower withers. Its nice fore the price and I love schooling in it on the right horse. It would def. sell better if it came in sizes.

its ok, 6/20/2011

candy from CA

I bought this for my very high withered tb hoping it would add cushion for his sensitive back. I used it several times a weeks for a month and then noticed a large rip in the material. I take very good care of all of my tack so I was very disappointed. It is also very small..I have a 17 inch saddle and it almost hangs off the back of the pad. I will not buy this pad again.

Amazing Quality for the Price!, 5/25/2011

ML from Nashville, TN

I don't personally own this product, but I have a friend who does, and the picture definitely doesn't do it justice!!! No, it doesn't have the traditional half pad look, but the quality is wonderful. The pad is thick and holds its shape incredibly well, and it is shaped for the saddle perfectly. Definitely better quality for the price than the $70-$150 mattes brands...

It is what it is, 5/23/2011

costumer from Northern California

I bought this product cautiously after reading the reviews. I heard that it ran small for a 17.5" saddle, which is what I have. They were correct, it does run a bit small. It would better fit a 16" saddle. However I needed an extra pad to school in to leave my fleeceworks sheepskin pad for the shows. It serves it's purpose and with a bit of manipulating it fits fairly well. It's thick enough for me and it has held up well. Keep in mind you're not buying a $200 product and you get what you paid for, however for schooling at home this pad is effective and does it's job.

I've had mine since Christmas of 2010 and it has held up considerably well for the price. It is made of this fabric that won't really give when you gist press on it, but when it is under saddle it provaide the perfect amount og comfort. I bought it in white and the color is still perfect. It is the whites white I've ever seen! Great product for the price!

Dawn from Chesterland, OH

this is a great product, however it does not fit 17.5 inch saddles properly. My suggestion would be to make this pad come in sizes, other wise your saddle sits on the edge which can pinch the horses back.

awesome half pad, 2/5/2011

hrsecr8zy from Santa Rosa, CA

I bought the white pad a little over a month ago. My QH/paint's saddle just didn't quite fit right so she needed a little extra padding. After looking at many of the very expensive sheepskin half pads I saw this one and decideed to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! A great product, fits my saddle and my horses back perfectly and it's washable! A great item for a great price!

Excellent Pad for the Price!, 12/27/2010

Emma from Kitsap, WA

I received my exselle half pad in white in the mail the other day and I am thoroughly impressed by it. It has a very nice structure to it, which the more expensive Roma pads lack, and everything about it seems very well made. The fleece is really nice, the fabric is high quality, and all the stitching is straight, neat, and no snags. I can't wait to try this on my horse, I know it will make her more comfortable as she regains her topline.

Great Pad - Just a little small!, 12/11/2010

AH from NC

This pad is very nice quality. Just as nice as the more expensive sheepskin ones. Really, 'real' or 'synthetic' is all you pay for in these things. It looks great, but did not fit my 17.5" AP saddle very well. Almost hung off the back, and as a result sitting on the little fleece roll on the back pushed my saddle up a couple of inches more than I would prefer. The horse, however, seems to like this one better than my other half pad though... My saddle is above average size, so if you have something smaller it will probably do better, or anyone with a larger saddle who needs some 'lift'.

Caroline from Durango, CO

I have to ride a variety of horses and this pad definitely helps to ensure that my saddle is as comfortable as possible for each of them. It works especially well to keep pressure off of higher withers. This saddle pad is a great value for the money - I'd rather buy these than the $70+ half-pads on the market.

Excellent half pad, my new tb mare has a tendency to shift saddles back as we ride, barely budged with this, fits my kincade beautifully, elevates the saddle really nice, and she was forward forward forward, she loved it! Don't buy the expensive brands, your paying for the name and more fleece! ( this one does have pretty fleece though, black is beautiful )
