This pad is amazing! Do you all do sponsorships or need a western/barrel racing dealer. If so, how would that work? I am about to start talking this up like crazy!
I purchased the Contender Western Square by Back on Track because my filly had a sore sacrum area to which I had given her a year off. During that time she had some growth spurts and grew withers. Oddly enough, after that, I could need keep my saddle from slipping and I was nervous to try a bunch of different pads on her in fear of making her back sore again. I chose this product because I liked the idea of the ceramic fabric and the shock absorption put together.
If you remember my calls and email when it arrived, I was quite skeptical. I was even questioning if this was the correct item I ordered as I had never seen one before! I tried it out the night it arrived. It had been raining and miss priss doesn’t like to get her feet wet. I figured that was a great time to see what the pad felt like. I was amazed. Even with her refusing puddles and jumping around, I felt more stable in my saddle than I think I ever had! I even had my husband get on her and tell me that he thought. His words were, “It is amazing that something so small can make such a huge difference.”
Before her year off, my filly clocked .5 second off of Sarah McDonald and Bling at the Florida State NBHA Finals. After bringing her back slowly, we were stuck in the 3D crack (1.5 seconds off) off some of the toughest competition currently in Florida. We entered two barrel races the weekend after receiving our thinline. The first day we were less than a half second off the leader and the next day we were less than a second (with rider error). The ONLY thing that had changed was this pad. The stability the pad provides, the fact that I do not have to cinch my horse as tight, and the proof she is running faster is everything I could have wanted out of this experience.
Thank you SO much!
