I got this pad with free shipping and a 20% off coupon - so it was about $50 (gulp, which is a lot for a plain pad). Tesla has outgrown one of her pads and the orangey one is borderline at this point...
First off, this pad was made for withers and curvy backs:
|Huggin curves in all the right places!|
The grey was the perfect shade (not too blue/purple) and matches the footing in the dressage arena exactly (coincidence? I think not LOL)
The suede-y fabric had a nice weight to it (but probably not ideal for full summer heat). I love the cordura reinforcement at the girth, that's always the first place to look ratty..
Thumbs up for the fairly innocuous branding.
And it stayed PUT - even after our round-pen session (and even tho' the stirrups didn't ;)
|No unsigtly lumps, bumps, or wrinkles....|
Initial impression, 5 out of 5 stars.
Will definitely be saving up for another.... oh the colour choices!
