    I mainly ride Western but I also ride English and as soon as I saw the 8200 COR Endurance saddle pad by HAF Equitation that’s black and red I feel in love bc I also have red and black English saddle and my boy thunder deserves nothing but the best because he is literally best horse I’ve ever owned there is nothing I ask him to do that he ain’t willing to do and I love him so much and just have this bond like I have never had before with a horse and we live in town so we do alot of riding around town and to stores and trail riding and barrel and playdays and lil bit of jumping and some working with cows

      Thank you! If I won I would love to try the HAF Endro 8300 Standard I black or brown. My trail partner is getting older and his body is changing. We have been struggling with saddle fit. He is a TB cross. I ride in an English all purpose saddle. He also sweats ALOT! I would love to be an ambassador for your product!

      I ride both English and Western. However, I prefer English. I feel it enables me to get closer to the horse where we can feel each other’s body language and respond accordingly. I like the classic English trail pad. I believe it is a chocolate brown color. I recently retired. Before, finding time to ride was always a challenge due to my long work hours. However, with reirement, my days are often open and riding would be a perfect exercise to keep my body “moving”. I appreciate your company offering this great opportunity to own a quality riding pad. Now I have the time to ride again, I do have to upgrade my tack for this new chalkenge.

      The Skito endurance dry back in black would be great to win. I trail ride out through the scrub, up and down lots of hills. I have really struggled to find a saddle and pad that doesn’t sore my horse. I’ve just purchased a treeless saddle and need a good pad to go with it. My mare is only 7 and I want her to be comfortable and not develop any soreness issues. I also believe in good quality products that last

        I have Two horses both using the same saddle I would love the 60001p Western barrel saddle pad Persian dream red. The saddle has a round skirt and many pads are not long enough 25 inches or they are to long 32 inches , this pad is right in the middle of these measurements. Would be great for my short back draft.

      6001 Western Barrel Saddle Pad by HAF -black. My daughter is just starting speed events barrels, poles, cattle sorting and learned how to goat tie this past weekend. This is a lot of a little 10 yr old.
      I feel if she were selected for this, it may help reduce the tension on her mare’s back. We have been been told to try some new pad on her horse to see if it helps her crankiness.
      And who better to be given a gift than a young girl and her horse she named Squirt (because she is a small mare)

      I would love to win the HAF Saddle 3200 gel-Eze pad. I primarily ride Western on all of my horses, but I do ride English when I feel like it. I love to ride western pleasure with my mare, and hit the trails on gorgeous days. I work her a lot so the HAF Gel would be amazing for her especially on the days where I ride her for hours at a time. She’s a paint that could work and canter all day. I want her to be comfortable as possible, especially since riding is so important to my physical and mental health. I was born with cerebral palsy and riding is the only form of exercise that has helped my hand and eye coordination but also keeping my hip joints in good motion. I thank everyday that I can ride and walk comfortably because of having a great horse. My great horse should be as comfortable as possible, and I hope that’ll be with a new 3200 gel- eze pad.

    Hi and thank you for this contest! If I won, I would choose the Freeform Classic Saddle Pad in black. I am a trail rider. I currently ride in an Aussie endurance saddle and a plantation saddle, but have been looking at some treeless too! I should win because it’s a contest and SOMEONE has win, might as well be me! 🙂 Thank you again.

    I would chose the HAF 8300 Enduro Trail Pad in black. I ride endurance on gaited horses which, of course, is not the norm as Arabians dominate the sport. I also ride treeless and feel that a great pad is essential to providing my horses with the best care possible.

  4. Tammy Le Bleu
    March 27, 2019 @ 6:53 pm

    My choice is the HAF 8300P Enduroi Trail pad in Persian Dream Beige. My poor horse has to do it all; trail / beach rides, dressage and the show ring in western and hunter pleasure! This pad would definitely help with riding in the hot summers to keep his back cool and comfy.

  5. Beth Anderson
    March 27, 2019 @ 6:59 pm

    Haf pad 3200 gel ease, I have a 24 year old wonderful horse that does dressage and about anything else you ask! I would love to have this pad to help fill in areas where he had lost some muscle.

    I like the Equipedic Western pad, black in color. I ride western and have a horse club for those passionate about horses but usually can’t afford to be around them.
    We have several rescue horses we use in our program and are always in need of good equipment. Because of the funds used to care for the horses, money is tight for equipment. We love what we do and are passionate about sharing our love of horses to anyone who shares our passion.

    March 27, 2019 @ 9:42 pm

    If I won I would pick the 3200 GEL-EZE Half by Haf equestrian because my off track standardbred turned 17 and my off track thoroughbred has some old racing injuries and any extra shock absorbance on our trail rides would really be appreciated. Both of my horses are rescues and I usually buy their equipment second hand so I can buy top notch supplements for them. I know me and my horses would be so happy to have that pad while riding!

    I would love to win a Haf enduro 8300 short back in black. My horse is 23 and still good on the trail . Like to keep him as comfortable as possible ! Think he would appreciate a great pad.

    If my horse and I would be fortunate enough to win one of these wonderful pads, I know that my horse Sunni would want the HAF Enduro 8300 trail pad in Persian Dream Red. It would protect and provide comfort to his back for our trail riding and the red would look fabulous on him since he is a palamino.

  10. Roxanne Jones
    March 28, 2019 @ 2:09 pm

    I’d pick the trail pad with shim pockets since my horse seems to be hard to size. I’d love the pad in bright happy color because I’m happiness trail riding. I would love to win to help me out since I drive a school bus for a living and I’m restricted financially. I enjoy all horses but my trail partners are spotted saddle horses.❤️

      The 8300P looks really nice and protective. Love blues, purples, cheery colors. They all look good on any color horse. Great company and thanks for the opportunity.

    HAF_5100_Reining_Western_Saddle_Pad black. Have a new horse that we are working on lost top line. Would love to have one of these pads as they have been recommended for sore backs. Financially saving the money to buy one but winning one would be better. Mostly pleasure riding but working on some western dressage.

  12. Rachel Aderhold
    March 29, 2019 @ 1:32 am

    I would choose the 8300 Euro trail pad because it would fit both of my horses. I have one with a short back an it is hard to find pads that fit him. We do all sorts of riding. We do traditional and western dressage, contesting, English and western pleasure/equation, calf sorting, jumping and trails. Right now I am using a used saddle pad to help my barrel saddle fit my horses. Both are high withered but different length backs so it is difficult to use the thicker pad on my short horse. My other well worn pads dont offer the support he needs.

    I have a very short-backed mare, and we recently switched to a barrel saddle to make her more comfortable when riding Western. I think the classic, short backed pad would work really well with it. My mare has been through a lot with saddle fitting, she had a lot of bad habits when I bought her, and I had the same saddle as her previous owner. When her behavior got worse, I realized that the saddle was causing her pain and impinging her shoulders. Once I got a saddle that fit her, her behavior improved immensely, and she stated moving much more freely. I would love to have a better pad to go under my Western saddle though, she’s still a little quirky in it.

    I would choose the 5500 Western pocket pad in the brown. I ride both gaming and trail. I sometimes do reining and cow work. I could really use a new pad and my horses Dusty and Charm would love it also. I anticipate really competing much more this year as well as doing much more trail riding with my best friend who just retired. My horses comfort and health are most important to me and they deserve a new pad.

    Because Brandie deserves better than I’ve been able to give her. I saved her life, but I haven’t been able to give her the life she really deserves for much of the time I’ve had her. This would at least be a step towards making her more comfortable under saddle.
    Thank you for the opportunity.

    I like the equipedic western pad in mariner blue. My little mare Shawnee was found as t 2 years old living in a dog kennel just skin and bones. Her owner became very I’ll and nobody knew the horse was around. When I got to the property to pick her up she could barely walk. I made that mare a promise that she would never end up that way again. I got her better and started her training she took to everything so quick and in six weeks my young son could ride her. She is now my go to horse for everything. I have had 2 major surgeries and she is the one I am able to ride 1st. Seems to me she takes care of me. She is now 6 years old and the love of my life.

    If I win I would like a 8300 enduro trail pad by HAF in black. I just bought my first treeless saddle on Monday that I intend to use for endurance. I started doing a couple LDs last year but I would like to move up to 50s this year and need the gear to do it.

    March 30, 2019 @ 3:33 pm

    If selected, I would choose the 8300 ENDURO TRAIL SADDLE PAD by HAF Equitation in black, please.

    Endurance & trail

    I’d love to be selected as I’ve always wanted to try these pads – and because a woman can never have too many saddle pads nor saddles. 🙂 Loving my new Freeform Scout! 🙂

    My horse would love the Freeform Saddle Pad Classic Standard, black. We do mounted archery. She is in her mid thirties and she helps people in our community who have experienced great sorrow. Her name is Touching Fire, she survived a tornado that hit the farm a couple of years ago where I kept her. She is also a rescue horse. Now she lives in our village behind our home. It would be such a blessing for her.

    Equipedic Western Pad In Mariner Blue to ride my Lena horse. I ride for pleasure around my property and need extra help with my Appaloosa horse so her back stays healthy. We deserve to ride because she has been the best companion for me as reliable and fun. She survived a muscle tear as a 3 year old and went on to show in reined cowhorse classes. 19 years old and still full of vip and vinegar. An ambassador for the Appaloosa breed or any breed, she will be a part of our lives forever……

    Your Free Firm Classic Standard pad with wither relief would benefit my 19 yr old Gelding, we compete in Extreme Trail Challenges and occasional Competitive Trail Riding. Thank you for a great offer !

    I love the pocket western trekking pad in brown! I ride trails and play days with my grandkids. My horse is 11 years old and round backed, I think this pad will be perfect.

    I would love to try the Freefrom classic standard pad- they look amazing and very nice quality!
    Living on the edge of the Idaho rocky mountain wilderness I do a lot of back country, bushwacking, rock scrambling trail riding! Its very important to have quality durable tack in those situations! But I also enjoy some time in the arena working on some Dressage and am planning on getting back into endurance after a 5 year break due to life changes.
    My herd is a little diverse in their body styles, so a freeform treeless saddle has been a huge answer to my saddle fitting woes! Rio the round short barreled arab, Solo the narrow long lanky arab, and Mango the pony who packs all his chubbiness right in his little round tummy would love to give the new freeform pad a try- the ability to shim the pad lets me make sure each one gets the best fit possible so that we can enjoy many more miles and hours exploring the mountains we love!

    I would love to have a HAF Equitation Pocket Western Trekking Saddle Pad in brown! I have a Paint mare I show all around with, but we really love getting out on the trail for some relaxing off time! This pad would give her a comfortable and good trail experience while being super convenient for me!
    I also have an Appaloosa gelding that is my primary trail horse. I think this pad would be a dream come true for him because all he wants to do is stay out on the trail! This pad would keep him comfortable and provide me the space for necessary supplies to be out on those long rides!
    Thanks for the chance!

    I would love the HAF Saddle Pad – 3200 GEL-EZE™ HALF by HAF Equitation. I ride western. Soon going to be learning english. I have 3 of the best lesson horses. One of which is getting up there in age (turning 25 in August) and LOVES her advanced lessons. I use her for therapy for special needs, mental and behavioral health clients. She is used for so many therapies I want her to be as happy under saddle as possible!

    March 31, 2019 @ 11:23 am

    If I won, I will choose the Equipedic Western Pad. I ride western, mostly trail riding now. Both my geldings are older, one being 15 and the 12. I want to be able to ride them for a long time yet, and I know that taking care of their back is a major thing to do. From what I have read about your pads, I think they will help a lot in doing this and I want only the best for them!

    Would love a Freeform Saddle Pad Classic Short Back! My mare and I ride in a western saddle and mostly do trail riding. It would be so great for her back as she is 24 years old and has high withers, this pad would be very comfortable for her! Anything to keep my senior mat going strong on the trails would be great!

    I ride English and would love to win the black 3200 GEL-EZE Half by Haf Eq. I recently had a nasty fall which ended up in me breaking my leg. I dont know what caused my horse to buck but if I can eliminate any pain from tack, that would be really helpful. If my horses are comfortable I may be able to avoid another situation like we had.

    5100 REINING WESTERN SADDLE PAD by HAF Equitation black

    I ride primarily western on my 14 year old Tennessee Walker, Hillbilly. He is a great guy and I would love to be able to give him more comfort with a better saddle pad than he currently has. We ride strictly treeless and have had issues find a saddle pad that doesn’t slide. He would appreciate it due to the long rides we typically do.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win one

    March 31, 2019 @ 9:10 pm

    If I were chosen as one of your lucky five winners, I would choose the Skito Extra High Peak short back endurance pad. I am the proud new owner of Duchess, a beautiful Palomino, Tennessee Walking Horse! Her withers are a little on the high side so I want to protect them with the best equipment available! Duchess and I mostly do trail and pleasure riding and are loving the process of building a lifelong relationship. Why should we be chosen, you ask? I feel as a horse owner, it is my responsibility to love and protect my horse! Protection means quality equipment to enhance comfort for both Duchess and me! She and I are a team and I would like nothing more than to create the best life i can for her!

    March 31, 2019 @ 11:50 pm

    I would like any of them. I don’t have my own horse but I volunteer at a horse shelter and would donate then there. We rescue horses from kill pens and could use anything to help.

    My equine best friend and I, Sterling aka Ironstar, love stadium jumping, cross country, and dressage! Sterling was rescued a few years ago and ended up in my hands (rather i ended up in his) and it has been a loving match ever since! I really work on making my older guy more comfortable and really think the 3200 Gel EZE haf pad would be a great addition to our routine! Thank you for the opportunity and excitement!

    Would love to try the Freeform Enduro Standard Pad. Think it only comes in black but would be happy with any color. I currently ride in 3 Freeforms, and have a new to endurance young girl riding in one of my saddles. I have 6 horses in training for endurance this year and as a heavyweight rider saddle and pad are everything. I currently have HAF pads and love them but I know they are no longer going to ne in production so have heard these pads are just as good if not better. No one better to find that out with as many miles as I put on my horses. I ride arabs and gaited horses and Freeform Saddles are the only way for me. Just love them! Would be honored to be goven a chance to put this saddle pad to the test. I know I will not be disappointed.

    Hi! if I won, I’d like the black classic standard endurance pad. I love the way it looks I ride two gaited horse in endurance saddles and a draft horse in an English saddle this pad would work for all saddles and look very stylish I think the pad would give my horse the ultimate comfort too

    Hi!
    What a fun contest!
    I’d love to win the Freeform Enduro Short Back, because that’s the one that Paulita said I should get, and because that’s the one that would go well with the Ultimate Trail Saddle that I plan on buying. My horse has a super short back and is very hard to fit, so it would just be terrific to move forward with the treeless saddle and not have my horse be in pain anymore.
    I mostly trail ride my Quarter Horse Leo, and enjoy doing trail obstacles as well.
    Thanks, and good luck everyone!

    I love the looks of your reining saddle pads. I have a foxtrotter that is very picky on saddle pads. I have trouble finding pad that she will ride under and yet be easy to her back. I ride trails alot on her and we show alot. She is built like a quarter horse Andi ride her with western saddles. She really needs to try and see what your pads fell to her. She is a great ride I hope we get to try your pads.

    I would love to win the 5100P reining pad for my mustang in the tan. We do a lot of trail riding and am hoping to try some team sorting and penning this year..He is my loyal companion and I want home to be comfortable when we are riding..❤️?

    I would choose the 8300 ENDURO TRAIL SADDLE PAD by HAF Equitation, the only color showing available is brown. I would take brown if blue or black is not available. We do all sorts of riding usually, but have been out for the past year due to injuries. We should win the saddle pad because I have a mare that is an odd size and shape due to being stunted as a foal (she was attacked by canines at only a month old) so she is difficult to fit for saddles. Just because she is somewhat crippled doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve to ride the trails. She has been cleared by several vets for light trail riding. I have an old treeless saddle I can use on her but I do not have a proper treeless pad. I think Ren (my fiesty pony mare) deserves to have a comfortable saddle pad so she can enjoy the trails. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Wow this is cool because I really need a new pad! And even cooler, there’s one with a pocket! I do mostly trail riding with my beautiful Paso Finos so having a pad with a pocket would be awesome! The 5500 POCKET WESTERN TREKKING SADDLE PAD by HAF in the color brown would be an amazing win! Thanks!

My horse is a draft cross and she is big bone but her body doesn’t fit her well my saddle was made for her but ever pad we get seem to rub her

    I would love to win the, HAF 3200 GEL EZE Half Pad in black. I train many young Arabian horses, I think this would be an excellent way to introduce them to being under saddle comfortably. I work in both the English and western disciplines. This pad looks like it would offer the best features for my purposes. I think this would be a wonderful tool and something I could share with my clients.

    If I were lucky enough to win one of the pads, I would choose the 6001 Western Barrel Saddle Pad in brown. My horse is shorter backed so I use a round skirted saddle but only have a traditional square pad. The rounded barrel pad would be much more comfortable on my boy, he’s a halflinger-paint cross, short and stocky. I would love to give him the comfort of one of these pads. Thank you for the opportunity.

    I am an 11 year old rider who does both English and western. I started my training in English and have only been learning western for a little under a year. I lease my current horse but I’m looking to get my first horse soon. Currently I’m having a blast in the 4 H world but I am thinking of moving to OSET. I would love your Freeform Enduro Classic pad for my English competitions. My parents do their best to get me what they can but I know that they sacrifice for me to be able to enjoy my love of horses. Being able to help supply some of my take would be awesome.

    I’ve been researching treeless saddles for my high withered Arabian. The Freeform Saddle Pad Enduro Short Back would be perfect for him! Getting this saddle pad would free up money to go towards the saddle ?
