Shires Performance Jump Saddle Pad Review

I recently bought a used close contact English jumping saddle for my American Paint mare, Jess, and along with the saddle I also bought a new saddle pad!  I have never bought an English saddle pad before, so by looking through reviews and knowing what style of English riding I’m going to be doing, I ended up buying the Shires Performance Jump Saddle Pad.

Saddle Pad Review 1

The saddles length is seventeen and a half inches, and the saddle pad fits a seventeen to eighteen-inch saddle. I got the saddle pad in navy blue, because I’m planning on making that Jess’s colour.

The saddle pad fits her back very nicely, and it doesn’t seem to move around a lot without the saddle on.

Like most, if not all saddle pads, this saddle pad also comes with girth straps.

I’ve really been enjoying this saddle pad, and it looks stunning on my sorrel! I will definitely be buying more saddle pads in the future from Shires Equestrian!

    Nice! I’ve only sat in an English saddle once and it was terribly uncomfortable to me, but I would like to try English riding sometime in the future. :)

      That’s too bad! That also happened the first I rode in an English saddle, but this new saddle I bought is very comfy! I actually prefer it over Western saddles. Hopefully you’ll get the chance to ride in one again!
