Rated 2 out of 5 by Karen This pad really is an air pad!!!
Do not purchase this pad...they look great, however, their air ride name is really true as mine has literally flown off the back of my horse TWICE during barrel runs! Yes I use a back cinch. I have to adjust it constantly. My daughter just got one because of the giraffe print..just used it at a race this pas week and it ended up on her horses but after exhibitions. I do not recommend this pad.

I cannot belive Charmayne James would put her name on this pad.
very thin, slips, not enough padding for my horse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Karen Wolf I'm not happy with this product!!
It is a beautiful saddle pad and would seem very comfortable for my horse...however it slips out from under my saddle no matter how tight my saddle girth is and is very dangerous for both of us! I got it in feb and didnt use it till march now I cant even return it due to STRICT 30 day return policy!! Go figure!!Bet they would still cash my check!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Caitlyn Not a good pad.
I bought this for my Thoroughbred gelding since he has high withers, but I ended up returning it because it caused him pain while we practiced barrels and turned (since the gel pockets are too far back from the shoulers) and got dirty fast! Plus it ripped after just a week since I got it, and the material and thickness of the pad is horrible. I wouldn't advise getting this pad unless you use it just for show and not for a regular riding pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonnie Great for my little old mare!
I have a 14hh 22 year old Arabian mare that I just retired from barrels. However, after purchasing this pad, I may run her in the local playdays and 3-D's for another season or two! Now that I'm using this pad, my mare's practice runs have been so much smoother than they have been in a long time. It's like all of a sudden she's able to really dig in to the turns and lead changes. It has really made a difference. I have to post on this horse because her trot is so rough, but now I don't have to post so much! It feels like her trot has gotten smoother! Plus, this is the only quality pad I could find that fits my tiny horse. Plus, it's shaped like her back with the high withers! I highly recommend this pad to anyone who seems to be having back troubles and stiffness with their horse!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Liz Sweeney slipped back constantly!
First of all, I had to send this back twice before horse.com finally sent me one without a tear on the side. They were very nice and didn't charge me for sending it back and sending me a new one each time, but it was a hassle.
I have a high withered TB and it is hard for me to find a saddle that fits her. I bought this and it definitly improved saddle fit and she seemed comfortable, but after only a few minutes of riding it had slipped at least four inches back. I tried to use a breastplate but it didn't help. I ended up returning it. I wouldn't recommend this product. I'm going back to my tacky too.

My horse has the dish going on. I was hesitant to buy this, unknowing if it would help.
I am so glad I did. My horse rides free under saddle. Its a good feeling to know that he is comfortable.
I bought the square pad, and glad I did, the smaller one, not sure would fit under my saddle. Siza matters here, as I ride a 16 inch round skirt.
The round pad may fit a smaller saddle.
