"I ordered a blue English bareback pad a few years ago, must be close to 5 or so ...(and) it's still going strong. Only a little colour fade, but then I'm in the Western Australian Desert sun. A friend of mine got a black and green one and is SUPER happy as well.

"I now run Horse Agility Clinics with a ridden aspect to it (i.e. bareback),we allow pads, one of our young ladies whom has a physical disability found it's the best one for stopping her slipping."Tania P, Horse Agility WA

"I have had my bareback pad for a couple of months now and absolutely love it. It is such a joy to ride in it and I completely feel safe on my 15.1hh horse now. The Pad makes it a very comforting ride so now I love trotting because it isn't at all bumpy. I hope to see lots more people riding in your bareback pads to insure great freedom in the horses' strides.  Whether it is walking, trotting, cantering or galloping, you practically don't move while you are in deluxe comfort.I hope this feedback persuades more riders that your products are unique and the best of all products." Yours sincerely, Nakita, age12

"I purchased one of your western style bareback pads.... Best thing I EVER bought. In fact, I am looking at getting another. Thanks for having such a nice product. Please don't jack up the price just because they're loved....Just seems to happen when I find something perfect." Yvonne via email

"It's well made, it stays put, and I stay put when I'm riding on it!  And the product arrived even quicker than promised!" Patricia G. via e-mail"Please add me to the list of people who are very happy with this pad! My Arab mare is a petite 14.2 and the Pony size is perfect for her! No slip, nice grippy seat, easy clean up." Gail in Belmont NH

"I love your English Bareback Pad. It's like a Velcro sofa and the girth is the best I've sever seen on a bareback pad--and I've seen many. I recommend this to all my riding buddies."  Laura; Wellfleet MA

"We ride with a large barn that teaches natural horsemanship so we all use your bareback pads." Cherie via email

"My Best Friend bareback pad arrived last night and I took it to the barn this morning to try it out.  It stayed put, I stayed put, my 16.2 hand Missouri Foxtrotter moved freely and comfortably and everyone at our dressage barn is jealous of the pockets (I bought the western style).  I'm an older adult amateur dressage rider (yes, on a Foxtrotter) and I've been having some balance issues over the past couple of years.  Going back to bareback seemed the best way to work on that and now I'm on my way.  I'm thrilled!  Thank you!!"   Jessica via email

Thanks for my new bareback pad - tried it for a couple of short jaunts - I think I'm in love!   Thank you again for the great product and efficient service." SL, Massachusetts

"Now, THAT is a nice bareback pad.  Thank you for the quick delivery."  Linda, via email

"I bought this pad 3-4 years ago and I love the Best Friend Bareback Pad!  I have used other pads and have actually left them on the side of the trail because they slide and won't stay put; not the Best Friend, this one is the best!  It's not too thick, which I like, and it does not move or slide.  Thanks for a great product!"  L. R., Ellensburt, WA via email

"I bought the Western bareback pad at the Equine Affair in Columbus last year and I just wanted to say that it was a real buy.  I would describe myself as a still beginning rider with a bit of riding time under my belt.  I've discovered that riding bareback has really helped my balance and when I used my saddle, I actually set a new personal record time of posting in a trot and not sitting back down.  Before buying your pad, I had tried another brand of bareback pad with my mare, and she hated it.  With this pad, she doesn't seem to mind one bit.  Thanks again."  J.M., Findlay, OH November

"I LOVE the grip it provides!  I'm able to concentrate on my riding and not worry about sliding off.  The faux suede grips just enough for me and the textured grippy bottom is great for my horse.  The girth is made of the same material so it's also slip free.  I also love the pockets to hold little things like treats, gloves, cell phone, etc.  The water bottle holder/pocket is great for those hot days just walking down the trail, too.  This is a GREAT buy and definitely worth every penny.  The little extra cost is worth getting the pockets on it, too."  Rated 5 out of 5 by the "Horse Tack Review" website. 

"I've got a Best Friend bareback pad and find it fits my very high withered horse much better than the Parelli one did that I borrowed to try out.  They're softer, more comfortable, have a breathable underside and are much easier to keep clean...plus they come complete with girth!!  Even if I had the opportunity, I wouldn't swap my Best Friend for a Parelli bareback pad."  From the Parelli Forum.

"I love my Best Friend Bareback pad--it's so nice to ride in.  Darcy has high withers and his spine is prominent due to a badly fitting saddle.  He has muscled up along his back and shoulders now which is great.  It does not move even if the girth is a bit loose, and it washes well in the machine."  From the Parelli Forum.

"This made a HUGE difference in how secure I feel while riding bareback.  I'd been doing some walk/trot work without a pad and felt like I was going to fall if I took more than just a few trot steps at a time.  With the pad, I was able to comfortably trot a huge circle and still felt relatively balanced."  from the Parelli Forum

"Because of the huge price difference I prefer this pad to the parelli pads I've used bfore.... Overall, a very nice pad and an absolute bargain compared to some other pads."  from the Parelli Forum

"It was my "best find" last year at the Rolex!"  Kelly, Lexington KY

"Best tack investment I ever made."  Dee, Lexington KY   

 "My BF Bareback Pads are secure, comfy, and pain free.  My adult daughter also uses a BF Bareback Pad at her therapeutic riding center."  Millie, Magnolia TX

"This pad has changed my view of riding bareback.  I used to have a fear of bareback riding, but this pad gives me enough stickiness that I can canter in the fields and not worry about slipping.  I've had the pad over 5 years and it still looks brand new.  All I have done is take a hard brush to the top every once in a while - not even every time I ride!  We have a lot of people at our barn who have thrown away the fuzzies and purchased your pads."
