I love this pad and my pony does too. It stays clean and it feels great knowing I am keeping him comfortable. Thanks Kavallerie!
Great half pad!!
Works for ranchers too
I have only used it once, my horse gets sore right about where the back of my butt sits. I used it on top of a 3/4" felt pad and she came up ouchy on me, I'm gonna try using it with just a thin blanket, and last will try it with a parelli air pad.
This is a wonderful pad that all my training horses LOVE!
This pad takes care of the small differences in the withers and backs of horses I train. Going to own more of these I’m thinking.
I love this for summer in the south. Use it over a dressage pad . I can wash the dressage pad but have substantial padding for my specialized saddle.
Ever since using this half pad or the fleece edged one, my horses seem so much more comfortable! One that used to object to trot and canter, now loves to go forward:)
Can't say enough good things about this pad. It provides great support. My horse and I are loving it.
Great protection for the horse and keeps the saddle securely in place. No slip!
Purchased this pad for my Tennessee Walker as I felt it would be a good investment to keep his back comfy. I like the close contact I can have with it while knowing his back is being protected! Thanks for the great product!
I’ve always struggled getting the saddle “just right” for my mare. Usually when I change anything, she is very upset - not this time! She loved the pad and I felt like the saddle remained balanced.
Excellent quality - a great jumping saddle pad soft and light and protective of my thoroughbred's back. Kyle Ziegler
I would like it to be smaller to fit within the rolls of my traditional fleece.
I've only used this saddle pad a handful of times so far, but I really like it! I wanted it for my high withered main man, but I've used it on several horses and it worked well on all of them.
This gel pad is very well made!
We own a stable and have used this on many horses. Seems to make them happy.
Great quality pad. My horse absolutely loves it!
This is the only pad I have found that helps prevent soreness after strenuous eventing... that’s why I own 3 of them.
This half pad has helped balance the fit of my saddle in my Dutch WB gelding. He has a high wither and is still developing his top line (trapezius and latissimus Doris muscles) which influence saddle fit. After working out in this pad, there is an even sweat mark where there were uneven dry spots before. Very happy with it.
Perfect gel half -pad! Very lightweight, plus attractive appearance. Extremely comfortable for horse and rider.
Excellent service delivering a quality product. Thank you!
I haven't tried this yet, as it's been in the 100s here, and I wouldn't risk my horse having heat exhaustion. But I'm sure that my 27 year old spotted saddle horse and my 22 year old Fox trotter will appreciate the comfort.
Quite well made, very lightweight. Fit easily under saddle and I noticed a real difference in my mare while riding. Ordered another for my husband’s gelding who has had some mild back issues.
I love how breathable the pad is!
A little too thick under the saddle but seems to do ok with my horse.
Bought this and have used it on both my horses with western and English saddles. Really am pleased with it and would recommend it.

It's the only pad that has worked for my GRP. Combined with the full 3D Mesh saddle pad it works even better!
The pad fits my saddle well and does not slip.
I purchased this item as a prophylactic aid for the horse. I want to make sure that any horse I ride is comfortable while riding. We need to make sure that we take complete care of the health of our horses spine. I used it and my instructor thought it was great.
Love the look and feel and is very well made.
Haven't had a chance to ride in it yet but cant wait to do so.
Very quick delivery.
Love this pad and I can tell by my mare's way of going that she is much more comfortable.
The pad is well-made and easy to care for.
Looks great but since we are on lockdown I have not had the chance to ride with it yet unfortunately.
Great pad! I bought this after trying it from someone at my barn that bought it before me. My horse has a stiff back and I was riding her in a sheepskin half pad. This pad has really helped her to relax her back and I can feel her movement much more in the saddle.
I foxhunt and ride a round barreled athelete with a history of saddle slipping, and who recently had some back issues. I hunted in the pad the day after it was delivered. The saddle ws snug, solid, and I could feel the difference in Peri's action. I am very impressed with this pad, and even showed ir off to the other foxhunters at the punchbowl that afternoon!
This is a very nice quality pad. I haven't been able to use it yet, but I feel like it is well constructed and will certainly protect my horses' back. Getting it on sale - even better!! If you are on the fence like I was, go for it. You won't be disappointed.
You sent me the wrong color. I ordered white and received black !! I like it but won’t be able to show with it because the rule book says pads must be white. I’m disappointed I didn’t send it back now, but I hate it when I have to send something back that wasn’t my error.
Well made. Fast delivery. Fits well
Really love how it fits!! Saddle stays in place and my horse is happier!
Well made pad and the horse seems to love it.
I purchased the 3D air mesh pad and its my go to pad on all my horses I double pad anyways but this pad gives me alot comfort knowing my horses feel good when im in the saddle and the best CUSTOMER SERVICE they care thx.
I wasn’t sure if the rubbery part was going to be sticky enough to prevent the saddle from sliding but it is! It is also thicker than I pictured which I like and is super squishy and comfortable.
Love this pad and so does my horse. She is very sensitive and with the pad she is more willing to use her body. It seems to have relieved some back discomfort. Thank you!
My horse loves this pad. Usually when I to to put her pad on she moves away but not with this pad. She seems much more comfortable than in any other half pad. It has great whither relief and is easy to clean. Love it!
I like this pad. It is supportive and well cushioned. My horse seems to like it. Looks nice (got the black) and should be easy to clean. Only drawback is that it is rather large for my 16-1/2 Stubben Wotan. Delivery was very fast (about two days). Thank you!
I originally bought the gel half-pad because I was looking for a half pad that was cooler than the Mattes sheepskin I currently own. While I like the gel pad quite well, the Air-Mesh Half Pad is what I REALLY wanted (I bought the gel because the air-mesh was initially out of stock). I like to provide a little extra "cushion" for my OTTB while jumping,LOVE how lightweight this pad is! It is super hothumid in the Houston, TX area in the summerthis Air-Mesh Half Pad provides the comfort while still very breathable. It also fits my saddlehorse's back well
The pad stays in place, is plenty big for a 17.5 saddle and gives great back cushioning.
Not only does this half pad have gel to help you stay secure, but it's soft and comfortable on the horses backs. It's easy to clean too, and my horse loves it.
Love the pads but was sent 4 pads instead of two, so I have a couple extra road I will sell
To someone who else
Fit my high withered horse very well and was easy to clean
When I first put this pad under my saddle I didn't think it would work. My lambs wool pad caused my saddle to slip and I had a hard fall. This didn't look any better. I almost took it off. But I didn't. And it really didn't move. But the best part is my horse moved better. His back was looser and he was much more enjoyable to ride. So, yes, I would buy this product again.
For my warm blood mare and I use an all purpose stubben, the saddle pad fit well and it is very comfortable, andmy mare worked well with it.
I bought the 3D Air-Mesh half pad after my 18 year old 3ft Hunter was starting to show some back soreness after some of our more rigorous training sessions. I noticed an immediate difference in how he carried himself and his willingness to go a little extra with every training ride! I highly recommend this pad for any horse.
When I can get the pad to fit in exactly the right position it's really good., but, it is a n inch or so shorter front to back than I could wish so it can easily slide out of position. Just an extra inch or so would fix the problem. Too bad there's no large size for the pad.
This item arrived super fast! I used this to help a 22 y.o. lesson mare with heavier riders since her back is not very well muscled any longer. She is so much more comfortable in this pad and it appears to be very well made. Wish I could order more for my clients, but it is my understanding they are sold out.
I am very pleased with this half pad, and my pony like it also. I would recommend this half pad to others
So right out of the box this is a very nice, high quality pad. Problem is the outer cushions (part that makes contact with saddle) is a pretty specific shape so it does not work with all saddles (and you won't know until you actually try it) case in point I bought this to use with a benz on my little short backed hanoverian mare to help with saddle slip which it definitely does, just doesnt line up with the saddle well at all. It does however work great with my stubben on my friesian so not a total loss. Its also pretty long. Fine for a 17 or even 18 saddle but any smaller and you can expect it to stick out. Overall it is a great high quality pad for a great price and I will order again but probably go with the regular gel riser.
The pad fits my all puose saddle an d warm blood mare very well. It comfortable to ride on and found it to to keep her cool.
Lovely pad and does its job! Thin enough to still feel the horse, but still super cushy! Only reason 4 stars is because it's too big for my saddle with about 5-6 in of material, even the gel portion hanging out around and behind the seat.
