Pad looks nice, but functionality is not its strong suit. The pad slipped out from under the saddle constantly, the "tacky" layer was sliding all over. The velcrow tabs that can be attached to their treeless saddle do not meet up in the correct place to hook to the little d rings where I attach my breast collar so when they recommended I attach them there the tension on the velcrow tabs was so much that I feard that they would pull completely out of the pad's stitching.
The side flaps where t
I love the comfort of my memory foam saddle pad. and it helps reduce slipping of my treeless saddle. However, even with mounting block and tacky-too cinch, I still experience some slippage. I would recommend that the top of the pad also be covered with tacky-too material
I found the quality to be very good but the claimed density that is "retained" to be nonexistent. The pad had no density whatsoever and became paper thin with no cushion retained of any kind when even the weight of a synthetic saddle was placed on it. It is not usable for anything other then short easy rides with a very light rider and saddle. I paid $80 for mine and only used it one time.
LOVE this pad! Zoey is always sore either on her high withers or on her spine. Gave his pad a try and had PERFECT fit, no slip (shocking for this horse!), and no sore back! I was a little nervous at first about the crinkling sound the pad made in my hands, as Zoey is deathly afraid of the 'plastic' noise, but the whole ride it didn't make a single sound. Still can't believe my saddle was in exact spot where I placed it when we got home and my horse wasn't sore for the first time since we got her
I have ordered several things from Hilason and have been very pleased. They let me customize a saddle that I received before they had promised it. It was beautiful and exactly the way I wanted it. I bought a HS/BC set that was beautiful., it was a back order and again I received it before expected. They saved my bacon when I forgot to order a bit for my granddaughters birthday in a timely manner. I ordered the bit late Thursday and it was in my mail on Monday. I did not request any special
I bought this pad in a different color. LOVE the pad on my horse who sweat something awful. LOVE the pad on my other horses as well. I now have a second hand Hilason Treeless saddle and it fits perfectly onto the pad. The only negative thing I have is that it's a little thin/short for my regular saddles.
I did not request any special shipping. I have found the quality of my products to be excellent, prices good and the personnel very nice and helpful. I would give them a five star rating. S.C. Berryton,Ks
Great pad for the Treeless saddles!

This saddle pad is well-made and fits my Hilason treeless barrel racing saddle perfectly. The one thing that could be improved upon is that the velcro straps used to secure the front of the pad to the saddle could be longer. When my saddle is properly positioned on the pad, the use of the velcro straps causes the front of the saddle pad to curl backwards. Overall, I am satisfied with the pad and it does help to keep the saddle from slipping. I still need to use a non-slip cinch and mount by
I bought one of these along with a saddle and i really love everything except for one thing, it slips really bad if u ride in it for awhile and try to get back on.... it says anti slip but i had to get on the railing at a show to get back on... other than that its really nice saddle pad and the reason I bought this saddle pad is because my horse is a very difficult to fit and tends to get hot in the pad area and shes stayed cool and during the cold weather she stays warm. I really recommend it!
I am very pleased with my Hilason wither relief saddle pad. It adds support/cushioning for my aging horse's back, since he has lost a little top line. Works well with my dressage and my jumping saddle.
I love it! It did not slip on my horse or out from underneath my saddle and it kept my horse cool! Highly recommend these saddle pads, they are awesome! Thanks again.

using a mounting block to prevent the saddle from slipping. A non-slip saddle pad is a MUST when riding in a treeless saddle, and this pad is a good quality and value for the price.
