    Spending 4-6 hours five days a week guiding visitors on horseback tours across the battlefields of Gettysburg, PA Lia deserves only the best of the best pads. She loves her job and works hard from April 1st through November 20th.

      Blue pad on top left is exactly what I want. My saddle pad right now was 20$ and it isn’t the greatest. I really need a new one but I don’t have the money.

      The FreeForm Classic in Black would be perfect! I have a 16 y:o OTTB with a very sensitive back. He’s let’s me know when he’s sore and it definitely influences his performance. I’d love to win this in order to provide him with more comfort!

      I would love to win the 5500 Pocket Western Trekking Saddle pad in brown for our mare MoMo.
      My granddaughter, special needs son and I ride MoMo.
      We ride western and having the pocket in the back would be amazing plus the special materials in this pad would be so great for MoMo’s back. I hope we win!

      Alito English dry back for 22 inch saddle. Black.i ride hunter jumpers and own a 3 year old ottb. He is such a sweetheart and is teaching this old lady more than I’ll ever be able to teach him. He is my buddy. He fills a void I had in my life. I like this pad for the high withers. Special is spelled wrong in the ad.

    The Haf reining western saddle pad would be perfect for my QH mare. It’s a beautiful pad that I would be proud to own. I trail ride and I could really use a new pad. Good pads are costly and we are budget conscious since we retired. Pick me!!!

    Equipedic western pad in red. I do some English and a lot of trail riding. My old man deserves the best since he is usually the one who takes the rank beginners in lessons or trail rides.

    I would love to have any of the western pads, honestly. But I do love the contour and padding of the pocket western pad! I ride performance type horses. My gelding has proved quite difficult to fit to a saddle and am attempting to change to treeless.

      Freeform Classic Pad Standard
      I ride endurance, trail and am working on western dressage.
      We’ve struggled with saddle fit until we found the freeform. This would update our pad, given us the best protection needed and keep up trucking down the trail!

    5500 POCKET WESTERN TREKKING SADDLE PAD ; what a nice saddle pad! My guy is 25 years old now, and naturally his shape is changing a bit. This looks like it would be very comfy for him! We trail ride, he loves nothing more than meandering threw the woods, finding water to play in, knowing good spa time awaits at home.

      I would LOVE the Equipedic Western Pad in black. I just recently started riding again after 25 years on the ground. Joker, my trusty 4 year old steed will soon be learning Western Dressage with me, at least until I build up my confidence, and then who knows where we will go! This pad would be a godsend as my daughter also rides competitively, so all our spare change goes to her. Poor Joker is stuck with the hand me downs.

    Free form classic in black. I rescued a horse from a kill pen and have yet to beable to ride him. He has very high withers and is underweight. I have worked with him on the ground and he is such a gentle horse with loads of love to give! The high withers causes severe pain so we need a special pad to beable to ride him. Your pads look perfect for what he needs. He has slowly gained the weight so he can be ridden, next is the pad! Thank you for this great giveaway!

    5100 western reining saddle pad in blue. I am a western style gaited horse trail blazer. My 10 yr old horse, Zeke, and I deserve to win because I just bought him to complete a dream I’ve been carrying since my last horse was sold 26 years ago. I will be his third owner and will be working with him extensively from ground up to build a bond and refresh each other on what we both know. The more comfortable he is, the better our exercises will be. ☺️

    I would love to win the 3200 gel eze hafpad. I just recently bought a thoroughbred gelding who has a very sensitive back, and I think this would help out drastically as we condition him for dressage and hunter jumper. I’m sure he would love to win it too, and would greatly appreciate it ?!!!. Super contest!!

    I would absolutely love to win the Persian Dream in Beige of the 5100P REINING WESTERN SADDLE PAD by HAF Equitation. My horses and I no longer compete, but they have been tasked with the care of two amazing children. Our main babysitter is a 17 year old standardbred gelding who I rescued 10 years ago from the racetrack. We used to compete in endurance, driving, and dressage in our younger years, but today, his career is in trail riding and teaching my children. He’s their favorite horse because he is so reliable, honest, and forgiving. He taught them to ride both english and western, as well as drive. Because of his conformation and track injuries, he needs more supportive pads to help keep him more comfortable, and I know that he would love the extra support in this new western saddle pad!

    Reno and i would love the navy blue 8300 enduro trail HAF pad. RENO, my skadaddle range mustang and i are working towards possible competitive- extreme trail rides. His comfort is my main concern. With his short coupled wide front shoulder back finding something uber comfortable for both of us is a must. We deserve to win because he is an American legend type of horse with a heart that wont stop giving its all. Please consider us for your awesome giveaway. Thank you you Charity Peters

    I would love to win the WHITE HAF saddle pad 2300 hel-eze half by haf equitation, the contest closes on my birthday and I never win anything. I am a single mother of 2, with 5 fur babies, I never buy anything I want because I spend money on what’s needed. It would be a miracle if I win this for my beautiful kind deserving beauties.

      Skito english dry back, 18″ black.
      I have an ultra sensitive dressage horse who will only go in a treeless saddle. I was involved in a horrible accident and had to have major neck surgery. I am in need of a really good pad more for my benefit as my strength, balance and reactions have all changed. Its like I’m a totally different person than i used to be. I am unable to afford a pad as my medical bills are high. I am too unsteady in a normal pad to ride and hence my confidenceis gone. Winning a pad would give me the stability and confidence to ride again. It’d give me my life back. Thank you so much, much gratitude to you for your offer to whom ever wins!

    My personal choice would be the HAF 8300 Endurance/Trail Saddle Pad in black! I just purchased a new trail saddle this past week and it will be shipped to me within a few days, so I would love to try out this new pad with it. My horse and I have been together for 14 years, with a brief hiatus when I moved out of state for a while. She came back to me last May, and I found myself going through saddle after saddle again to find one that would fit properly. Over the winter I had a custom saddle made for me, and I’m so excited for an amazing season of riders this summer!

    I would like the 5100 western reining pad in royal blue. My horse and I do mostly western riding, that is where I am most comfortable. We only to leisure riding on private trails right now but hope to change that in the future, as we become a better team together. My horse is gaited and has mutton withers finding an affordable saddle to fit her has been a nightmare. And the saddle pad is just as important on how well the saddle stays in place as well. Riding crooked is no fun for me or her. I would like to win this pad, because I am hoping it makes for a better riding experience for both of us.

    So, I’m new to the treeless world. And, I am an endurance rider on a non-traditional breed (Paso Finos).

    Until January, I was SOLIDLY in the heavyweight division for endurance; and when I say solidly, I DO mean solidly.

    Then I got serious about my weight because I have #EnduranceGoals this year; specifically to compete with BOTH of my Paso Finos at the Paso Fino Horse Association Distance Nationals being held in Oklahoma this October. And, as such, it means I’m having to get serious about finding a good, quality treeless pad to use with the Freeform saddle my friend gave to me (I jokingly call her my ‘endurance sponsor’).

    So, I spent time looking through all of the pads. Now, the fact is, I’m still a little heavy (and I am STILL working on it!), so I knew that I wanted something with shims. I also like a bit of color; just something a little different (my current pad is just a plain, white one…BORING!).

    Then my search led me to the 8300P Enduro Trail Saddle Pad. I LOVE THE FABRIC (the Persian Dream Beige)!! I love the idea of the shims! I LOVE how easy it sounds to clean!! And the fact it distributes heat is icing on the proverbial cake…errr…saddle pad!!! Did I mention one of my Paso Finos is all black? AND we compete ONLY in Texas? Yeahhhhh…my horse is a solid gold citizen to do what he does! And he deserves something nice for it.

    Why should I (actually, I guess my HORSES would actually be the winners!) win?

    Because my horses mean the world to me. Because we have goals and aspirations that most people in our breed just don’t. We think outside of the show pen, and we ride for 50 miles together (someday we hope to make that jump to 75s and 100s!!!). Because my horses are truly ambassadors for the breed; everyone jokes and laughs that “That horse does 100 miles in footfalls in 50 miles”, but they don’t laugh when we cross the finish line. Because my horse did the same number of miles, and with that typical Paso flair! Because my horses work SO HARD for me, and this, I feel, would give them the extra “oomph” to truly move freely for those 50 miles.

    5100 REINING WESTERN SADDLE PAD by HAF Equitation in Red, we are pleasure riders. I really want one for my husband and his horse. My new saddle pad slips all the time, so when saddling my husband puts his pad on my horse and uses an old one. His mare is 17 years old and very patient with him she is a rescue with half a tongue, I would love to gift them with an awesome pad that would ease and make her comfortable when riding.

    The 8300 in brown. My horse and i are going to our first competitive trail ride soon and we need some good gear. I have had my horse for 12 years but he hsd mostly been a pasture ornament as i have let my daughter ride and show. She is graduating and now it is my turn and we need some good equipment. Would love to try this pad!

    Equipedic Western Pad in mariner blue is the pad I hope to win. I ride Western and have a young mare with an old soul. She has the right kind of personality that anyone can ride her, therefore she will need to wear many different saddles and this one sounds like it would be the perfect fit for her no matter how she grows or wha saddle she needs.

    Skito Endurance Dryback (SkitoEnduro) Western
    Western/trail riding/ recreational​
    Brandie is 23, and my last horse. I rescued her when she was less than three years old from a very abusive situation, and we’ve been together a long time. When I got her, she’d literally try to kill anyone who went into the stall with her. It took some time, but she became a safe, reliable pocket pony.
    None of my equipment is very fancy; I don’t have a lot of money, and sometimes I don’t know from month to month how I’ll keep her, but somehow I always do. I’d like, just once, to give her something that’s good enough for her. She deserves a lot better than I’ve been able to give her, especially over the past few years.

    Equipedic Western pad in Mariner blue please (if not available then the 5500 pocket western trekking pad royal blue)
    We ride western. Youth rodeo-barrels, poles, goat tying, breakaway roping and cattle working

    We should win because my daughter is such a hard competitor and her horses deserve the best. Versatile horses need saddle pads that can work with the horse and help reach the competitive level!

    I’m always looking for ways to make the rides more comfortable for my hard to fit Paso Fino boy. We have tried numerous saddle and pad combinations and with the great features offered on this pad, I’m hoping to finally find the perfect fit! He is such a good boy; he deserves the best!

Took her a LONG time to trust me. Now she is my “go-to” horse. I would LOVE to reward her with this. Love my Tessa girl!!!

    Hi! My name is Ethan and I am 17 years young! My freezebrand is Standardbred but Mom says that I’m part moose because I’m so big. 🙂 I worked for the Amish for a very long time and have a big white spot on my withers from where they didn’t worry as much about things fitting me right as mom does now. She has tried all kinds of saddles and thinks that we have one now that almost fits but she rides me bareback alot of the time because she wants me to be comfortable. I worry that she might fall off one day and I would hate for that to happen because she takes such good care of me. (She says that I don’t hear well so no matter how far out I am she always comes and gets me for breakfast!) I think that the Enduro Trail Saddle Pad by HAF would give me enough cushion around my withers that she would feel more sure about using our new saddle for rides around the farm. I’m very lucky now at my new home and have lots of friends. Mom doesn’t make me work or do a sport, we just like to ride around together and have fun. 🙂

    8300p. We do trail riding at our rescue. We currently have 20 horses here and I think they all deserve to have the best. We have several older horses that really need the extra plus others that have been abused that are being retrained.

    I would love the Enduro Trail Saddle Pad in dark blue, I trail ride in a western saddle. I am having issues with my TWH mare in fitting her saddle, the saddle fitter tells me I need a pad like your with inserts that can be tailored to her.

  38. Mare Simonar-Dykes
    March 26, 2019 @ 5:38 pm

    As far as I can decide to select now, I think we would benefit most by the Freeform Classic Standard pad. As I mostly only have my English, as well as Aussie saddles left

    I’m a para-equestrian trying to get back in the saddle to ride dressage, competitive trail, etc, after years of putting my riding on the back burner to teach kids to ride (my own & others), etc; this pad should work w my half Arab gelding Merlin, out of my late mare, as well as my senior Egyptian bred rescue mare Maggi who’s had a roller coaster of weight issues we are finally getting resolved.

    I love the Freeform Classic standard and would love to win one, I think black is the only color? My horse and I do a lot of conditioning trail riding, Mountain Trail courses, and fox hunting. I would love to have a great, washable saddle pad to protect my best friend’s back when we are out for long rides. It’s important to me that he is kept cool and comfortable and that I can wash his pad so that it stays functional and hygienic in the hot summer months.

    After the surgery to remive the tumor disabled him. Little did i know those two horses were going to become my lifeline. They have been my most trustworthy companion ,my silent listeners of all my troubles and my most loving shoulders to cry on thru tit all. I thought the horses were for my son instead they saved me as well and they deserve To be wearing the best and most beautiful pads . I could never afford it with all the therapies for my son , so thank you from the bottom of my heart if you choose my dear friends to receive this gift which will be treasured for as long as possible.

    Hoping to win The HAF Equitation 8300P Enduro Trail Saddle Pad – Persian Dream Red (first choice) or Beige.
    We (my horse and I) do a lot of trail riding over all sorts of landscapes and terrain.
    It would be awesome to win this saddle pad as sadly I have champagne taste on a beer budget, but because I ride in a treeless I feel it is only fair to my horse to make him as comfortable as possible and to take as much pressure as I can off his spine. He carries me without much complaint…He is an awesome horse, my heart and best pal! <3

    The 5500 Western Trekking saddle sounds awesome. I have spotted saddle horse and the ability to incorporate shims/build up pads in one unit sounds amazing. I am not sure if there is any color except brown which looks a lot like my western saddle so that works. I do trail and extreme trail riding. I am not sure that I should win, but I will be starting my young horse this fall and would love to try this with him.

    My horse and I would love any western pad the 5500 sounds amazing!
    We ride western pleasure. I had to put down my amazing guy at 26 and found a amazing girl.
    I have full body arthritis and I’m not supposed to be able to ride but I’m so not ready to give up. All of my saddle pads are used and I’d love for GVR Zippo Candy Bar to ha e a pad that is better for her back because she is so gentle and without the perfect horse I could no longer ride. So I owe her so much but with board and having to buy her a new saddle I just cant afford a brand new pad right now.
    Thank you for the chance to win!

    I would love the Skito English Dry Back Pad. I take classical dressage lessons and occasionally a trail ride. We need your pad because my gelding is recovery from a bad fitting saddle and his back needs all of the protection possible.
