    First impressions

    This saddle pad was forward cut, lightweight and straightforward — it looked to be a useful all-purpose pad.

    Overview of performance

    This product performed very well throughout the time I tested it. The smaller D-ring straps are perfect for a close-contact saddle or a mono flap. It’s a nice shape and fitted all of the saddles I tried it with. It wicked any moisture away quickly, had a lovely high wither and provided enough cushioning.

    Harriet’s likes and dislikes

    I liked the simplicity and all-round purpose of this saddle pad. It has a good shape and I liked the mono-flap D-ring attachment. It’s a really great value saddle pad. 


    *H&H Approved* I would 100% recommend this to anyone and everyone who has horses, both competition and pleasure.
