Really love this pad! Fits well and is providing lots of cushion. Would purchase again!
My fault for not measuring the average size of most of my saddles. I should have mixed up the sizes for a couple 'shorter'. Great Pad, otherwise. Thanks
Unfortunately it didn’t fit my pony, but my trainer grabbed it and used it on her older Warmblood with high withers. It fit him very well, and she bought it from me! I love how well made it is, and on the right back, I think it could be extremely beneficial.
So far we like it, only wish the fleece was white to match our show pad.
Nice pad but I wish the fleece were real.
Fits well and very good quality
Love this pad. Provides just enough padding where needed without putting my saddle too far off my horse. The grippy pads also help keep my saddle in place.

Man was my guy happy-even in the first ride of this saddle pad! I could tell it helped his back and his withers are so sharky-there was no rubbing. And we have gone through some half pads…only pad that worked for him was this one. Very happy with the purchase
My horse is doing well with it
My horses really enjoy the pad seems to move better when using it
Received pad damaged and it was replaced immediately. Excellent service!
This pad really helped my dressage mare go forward and lift her back more freely- obviously her saddle was impeding her using her back; back stays cool also! Wish it was a little shorter- saddle is a 17in ; but still wouldn’t consider riding now without it!
Love this half pad!! I have a thoroughbred that sweats easily, even in winter and this pad offers more ventilation along his back even with a saddle pad under it! Add the shock absorbing benefits makes this pad a must have!
perfect for my horse!!!!
Fits under western saddle with no issues. My horse is more comfortable.
The horses I ride seem to move out a lot better with this pad on. I love the comfortable feel of the pad under my saddle , the horses seem to love the gel feel too.
Awesome, comfortable, light pad that fits well and makes the horse happy!!
I absolutely love this half pad, I wanted the best for my Gypsy mare, I am very pleased with it. Very nice quality, and super fast shipping.
Really liked how comfortable my mare was working under this half pad. Wish I had gotten two, but had to make sure it worked first. Live and learn.
it give great padding for my horse's back. He seems very comfortable in it.
Pad fits all my saddles from 17.5 hunt seat to 18.5 dressage saddle great and without the bulk of most half pads. Looks very nice! Love it!
Rode in it first time today, really nice. I’m going to order a white one for my palomino.
I love the pad. 2 things to fix. 1) in order to show with pad need less black to show or make sizes according to saddle size. Which will fix all problems. All horses ponies seem to love it.
This pad makes my OTTB so happy. She is a young sensitive cold backed type horse. Since this pad, she has been relaxed, calm and soft. She loves to round to the bridle now that her back is supported correctly. Definitely recommend this for all of your sensitive backed horses.
My daughter's mare is 19 yrs this year. She is still actively competeing on her. We try to feed her the best and using the very best equipment we can afford. We noticed however, she was a little irritable lately. She had chiropractic work fon
My 27 year old OTTB loves it. Everyone is noticing that he moves better. I let a friend borrow it and her horse lined it so much she ordered one too
The white half pad is lightweight and adds an elegant look. I love this pad!!
I love the pad so far
Ordering was a breeze, shipping was super fast, and the pad is great! My saddle is a Voltaire Stuttgart 18" and there's plenty of pad to fit completely under/around the saddle. My 17.3h Dutch Warmblood mare seems to love it!
My horse has a bit of a sensitive back and I have been looking for a product that has gel to help him as well as the technology to distribute the heat created when riding. I am in love with this pad!!
Incredible fit, made my horse so much more comfortable. Highly recommended it.
Beautiful solidly made half pad with excellent breathable padding. I can feel the difference and my mare seems to be very comfortable.
She is rounding through her back, sneezing and moving out 5 steps from the mounting block...amazing!!

Very good quality gel, my daughter loved it for her dressage competition
Exceptionally fast shipping, outstanding product quality and communication from company is unparalleled.
This is set to be a gift for someone who has been talking about this product for 6 months. It is sure to be a hit.
I have been having issues with my horse bucking after the fence believed it was saddle fit this saddle pad has really helped!
This pad helped with saddle fitting on a difficult horse to fit. She seems to love it.
I love that its washable.
I love my half pad. I use it every time that I ride and it keeps our horses backs impact protected and relieves pressure points. I was a little worried it would through off the fit of the saddle but it doesn’t !
Wonderful - I get so many compliments!
Like the fit under my saddle.
Looks super nice and I think it does provide some extra cushion for my saddle. My horse does seem to move better with it.
I’ve only used this pad a few times so far but I love it! The seat is larger than my saddle so the black gel pad shows a bit, otherwise the fit is great. I normally use mattes pads, which are terrific however we fox hunt and are in the tack for many hours, the mattes get worn down.
This pad is of super high quality construction and beautiful. My mare, who has back pain, acts much happier, is freer in movement when I ride with this pad. And it helps with saddle slippage and works on her, even though she has a very wide, round back.

As my horses are getting older, their physical needs to be comfortable under saddle are changing. This padded ½ pad is just the thing and works great for both of them. Thank you for a great product.
I was hopeful that this gel half pad would make my horses more comfortable and I was not disappointed. I love that it gives their back more freedom to move.
High quality, very comfortable pad.
Love how it my saddle sits using the half pad .works great on my saddlebred and my friesian love the pad !
Love this pad. Waiting for them to restock so I can buy another one.
Love all aspects of this pad, Non slip, ergonomically correct back protection, high quality and really a beautiful pad!
Horse loves it s do I
Love the pad. Seems a little large under my saddle but the distribution seems even. I notice a little more spring in my 21 year old horses step. I think the pad delivers on how it is advertised. I am very pleased with it.
I do like this pad. The only complaint I have is that there is only one size, and I have to pull the pad back so that the back of the seat rests in the correct position. That leaves about 4 inches of pad beyond the saddle, and I'm not crazy about how that looks.
I am very pleased with this half pad. I ride multiple horses of varied breeds with the same saddle. While my saddle fits them all well, I still had to be creative with padding systems to ensure they were all as comfortable as possible. This half pad has been a game changer! I will never go back to just a plain sheepskin half pad.
My horse is older and I want to make him as comfortable as possible. I was using a gel pad but felt there had to be something else. I saw the Kavallerie air mesh pad on a FB add and did some research. I received the pad rather quickly and have used it for a week and my horses back has not been sore and he is moving much better when I use it.
While I haven't used this yet. I believe that it's going to serve my purpose. I have older gaited geldings and this will help keep the comfortable as i ride. Haven't used it due to the extreme heat here in Texas
Very pleased with the design, have used it in a show environment too. Really like the cushioning mixed with a great style. Bought it in white. Machine washes well. Bought a second one.
I bought these for my grandkids
They ride cross country
Dressage and jumping arenas
They love the pads for their horses !
Arrived quickly! The pad is fantastic. It did wonderful in the washer on gentle cycle. It keeps horses and human comfortable and can be used with both of my saddles. I used to need a front riser with my saddles, but not anymore! Thank you!
Best purchase ever it makes my saddle the perfect fit on almost any horse
Well today was the first chance I got to use my new 1/2 pad... we are at a AQHA show in Arkansas. It worked out great.
This half pad has made a big difference in the quality of my horse's experience under saddle. He sweats less, and generally seems more comfortable. I'm very happy with the way it works with my saddle.
I couldn’t be happier with how my horse is so much more comfortable with this. My saddle stays in place much better. He has high withers and it has been a struggle to keep his saddle where it needs to be. Very happy!!
This is the second pad that has been purchased. The horse’s back is protected from impact. Relieves pressure points. Love this half pad!
I rode my moody mare with this pad and she worked perfectly. No moodiness at all!
Delivery was quick. Product is very well made and looks great. Sits nice and cushions the back. Very pleased.
The half pad I bought provides extra cushioning for my older mare whose top line has changed a little. It fits our saddle - maybe a little big. I did not notice any diffrent sizes - could be a good option.
My horse seems more comfortable. He is 24 and his top line had dropped some. He had also become girthy and sometimes it seemed like he would give out a little in his right hind end. He hasn’t done that yet since using the pad. He has seemed very relaxed on rides.
Now it is raining here so I can’t ride. Still waiting to ride
I love this pad. Trail rode for 4 hours yesterday and horse was comfortable and saddle stayed in place.
Nice fit, feels secure, looks nice
Unfortunately due to the current situation, I have not been able to ride but it looks and feels amazing and I know my Third level, 16.3hh Friesian will greatly appreciate it!
Really nice pad. Looks better in person than on the pictures. Horse loves it, stayed in place during the ride. Highly recommend.
I bought a TH with high withers and my saddle didn't fit him. Several of my friends let me try different saddles but I wanted to ride in mine. I hesitantly ordered this pad and it did the trick. My horse does good in it.
I took a chance on this company not knowing them and it turned out great. Love my therapeutic half pad. So does my horse! People were great to deal with. I will purchase again from this company!! Great product!!
So well made and conforms to the horse beautifully!
We just got this new pad and love it. I’ve ridden a couple different horses in it and they seem to love it. I like the feel Of my horse I still have with it.
My big jumper (18hh) tends to get a little sore in his back after hard jumping days. I wanted to give this a shot before we head to Thermal for a few weeks of showing. I have only had this pad for a week and can say this is the first time I have ever felt a half pad make a difference in my 25 years of riding. I'll be ordering more for my other show horses. This is amazing!
Looks sharp, rides comfortably and seems comfortable for the horse.
Works as designed. Helps with my Arabian mares round withers.
When I bought this I was looking for a pad that would help raise the tail end of my saddle, and it actually does this really cool thing where after a few uses it forms to your horses back and fits perfectly everytime as well as their boots, which is one this I love love love about this brand! The pad is nice a thick but also light weight and the mesh provides a nice cool down for your horse, regardless what I’m saying is this pad is amazing and I would recommend it for everyone no matter what your horse needs it will fit :) - Sophia Marinaro
I bought this to use on my two ottbs. Surely thought it was going to be nothing special. I was hoping it would help with slight bridging for my grey and his saddle. Sure did! My bay just had surgery on July and we've been coming back to work slowly. I also use this pad and he seems to like me up there a lot more than before (he is very wide as opposed to my grey). Both horses move better using this pad, and the saddle never moves. Seriously impressed with your product!
Love how this pad fits my horse.. I have a Purebred Arabian with broad shoulders... and he's very sensitive.This pad makes all the difference.Will be purchasing it in white to show in..
Great product. Was perfect for creating a little extra comfort under my horse’s saddle after he lost weight.
too big fr my horse but he is small. Would do good on a warmblood or draft cross
I love it. Just the right amount of padding to keep my horse comfortable. Doesn't slip. It's just a tad too long for my 17' AP saddle, but the gel pads fit exactly where they need to be.
Keeps my horse's back cool. Doesn't slip like my old pad. Love it!Janis

Love this pad, fits my 18' english saddle perfectly, it actually makes my saddle seat more comfortable if that is possible.Great quality well made.
I bought this for my granddaughter. She is over the moon in love with it.
This pad looks like good quality, except for faux sheepskin which sheds quite a bit, washes up well, slightly long for my 17 1/2'dressage saddle, definitely helps keep saddle in place. Can't really say if it's comfortable for mare, she won't tell me, but seems happy.
I bought this pad to help with saddle bridging until I can meet with my saddle fitter. Pad is nice quality and super grippe. It stays in place and helped with the saddle fit. I would like to continue using it even after my jump saddle is fitted because of its awesome shock absorbency. I noticed my horse was more comfortable during our ride with this pad. I have a thinline pad that I use and love but this will be my new go-to pad for jumping because of its design and features. Fur trim was nice quality and made the pad look very stylish. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Like a lot of people I really wanted to like this pad, however it really does run big and the saddle ends up setting on the padded areas weirdly. My horse seemed very comfortable in it and it does seem to be easy to clean. I’ll see if someone at the barn can make use of it.
Don’t know the durability yet, since we just started using it. But, my trainer said that she did notice a difference in my horses response. My daughter also said the ride seemed better. Since my horse is an OTT thoroughbred and was sold because of tightness, protecting her back is important. Very happy so far.
Comodidad para el caballo y para el jinete.La silla no se desliza.
This halfpad is perfect to provide a little extra protection for my older horse. I took one star off, because its been shedding fleece ever since I opened it. It seems like it will hold up over time, but it's extremely annoying to constantly have to pick up fleece from all over the place.
I really like the pad and feel like it's providing a great cushion for my horse!
Love this half pad. Have received tons of compliments on it. Works perfect with my 17' close contact saddle. Love it. Would buy again. Worth the investment.
