nice thick blanket. Extra long on my short backed horse.

Lovely and durable product ...
I already have this blanket in chestnut/teal and sand/sage and ordered a third in blue/blue. The original blanket of this type that I purchased (chestnut/teal) has been doing duty for so many years that I don't recall when I bought it - years and years ago. The color has faded slightly on the side that is exposed but the other side looks like new so if you wish to impress, just turn the blanket over. Initially the blanket is a bit scratchy feeling but softens up nicely with use while still maintaining its shape. I use the blanket over a wool underpad thus cannot speak to its durability if used as the only undersaddle layer.

This is a gift!
My son/daughter felt that this saddle blanket was of good quality and the maroon/black is very nice looking. Hope it stands up - haven't used it yet! price is good.

I was expecting more of a pad type blanket, so was a bit surprised by the price. It is however a nice thick blanket I will use it with a pad in winter but might try to use it alone under the saddle in summer. colours are good and the fit seems fine too!

Bar 8 Blanket is a 10!
Just received the Bar 8 New Zealand wool blanket in the mail today- I LOVE the Sage/Sand color, which is EXACTLY as it shows in the picture, and looks awesome with my chestnut colored saddle! Seems to be tightly woven, well-made and about 3/8" thick. This is a working man's saddle blanket however, so it's texture is more like a floor rug than a baby blanket. I'm going to be using a thin felt pad underneath to keep it clean and add a bit more padding. LOVE IT so far - will write another review on durability after a few months of riding.

I am very pleased with my purchase of this blanket. Colors are very accurate in the picture (chocolate/teal) and this is an affordable durable quality blanket.

Stampede Princess Aprooved
This was our blanket given with our Saddle when chosen to represent the stampede. Nice and large, never showed wear with heavy riding schedule, only thing is didn't always lie flat against horse, seemed to not be horse shaped enough.

WOW! Thick Beautiful Blanket
I purchased the blue/blue blanket. I was under the impression this would be a thin blanket that I would have to put a pad under or use another blanket with, in order to provide ample padding for my horse. Turns out this is a very thick heavy blanket. It feels as if a small pad is in the blanket it is so heavy. The blanket is durable and the colors are brilliant. The pictures do not do this blanket justice.

Saddle Pad
I am usually skeptical about quality of products when ordering on line. This pad far exceeds my expectations. The colors on the site do not do it justice. The pad is well made and is the perfect size for my show saddle. I am deciding whether to order another pad, but the color of my horses determines colors of the pad interchanging. Thank you for a great product and a very affordable price.

How thick is this pad?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I use this pad, plus a wool half pad for my English saddle and it’s perfect. I would NOT use this as the only pad for a western saddle. I use this as a liner under my wool pad for the western saddle. There are other Mayatex blankets that are a lot thicker, but I would still use some sort of extra padding for a western saddle. I have that this blanket and several other Mayatex blankets for about five years now and have been very impressed with all of them.
what are the dimensions of this blanket?
S P on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 34" long (front to back) by 35" wide (17.5" drop). Works well with Tuckers, Circle Y and other trail saddles with a bit of a dropped rigging in front.
How much does it weigh?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 6lbs. I weighed in on my feed scale.
Is this 100% wool?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: made from 100% New Zealand Wool
