SaddleRight™ Custom Orthopedic Saddle Pads SaddleRight™ orthopedic saddle pads aremade with our unique core material that not only protects the back but allows it to rebuild muscle- a hallmark of our pads for over 34 years.
SaddleRight Saddle Pads- the FIRST and TRUE Custom Orthopedic Pad For Your Horse! SaddleRight Pads were the result of the years of trials, research, and perseverance of Dr. Mike Freeman, Doctor of Chiropractic and Kinesiologist. He traveled the country working on horses that presented with sore backs, nerve damage and muscle atrophy. His observations and research showed that any saddle, applied to a horses back, began the process of muscle shutdown. When paired with pads that didn’t supply foundation, dissipation of pressure and heat, the problem became worse. After years of researching materials, the pad as it still is today, was born. Dr. Freeman did the research and testing with the the assistance of two veterinarians, and final testing by Texas A&M University. The pad and it’s unique core material exceeded all expectations. Twenty-four test pads were released for purchase in 1979 to the public, with some of the test pads recipients being Dolli and Darryl Lautaret and Jeff and Bonnie LeMaire. Their daughters, Betsy LeMaire Nunn and our Performance team member, Jolee Lataret Jordan, still compete on our pads today! The World Famous Horseman, Al Dunning, was also aboard our pads for many years. By 1984, the pads were in full swing with great reviews.
How Does SaddleRight Protect My Horse's Back While Helping Their Muscles To Regenerate?
The unique core material in our pad, encourages the back muscles to regenerate, rebuild, and repair. It also encourages the nerves and lymphatic system to work properly. Our pad allows the freedom needed for equine athletes to reach better, feel better, and ultimately to perform better. The pad begins working as soon as it is applied to the back. This was the origination of the FIRST and only TRUE orthopedic saddle pad available.
If You are Going To Saddle Up... Make Sure You SaddleRIGHT!
Discomfort to your horse's back will greatly affect the way that he or she can perform. Why Orthopedic? All pads are not created equal! Some pads just mask the problems, and increase poor conformation issues without offering any real protection to your horse. SaddleRight Pads offer protection, comfort, and the opportunity for the muscular system to rebound and rebuild. Our pad can also encourage reversal of muscle atrophy and allow for optimal performance and comfort each time you ride.

What Do People SAY About Their SaddleRight Saddle Pads? "SaddleRight has been instrumental in treating and maintaining sore backs on the ranch horses, that we ask so much of, and our performance horses as well. The pads never move and the horses feel stronger and move freely with SaddleRight." -Chad Smith
“I've had several different saddles and saddle pads over the years and while I liked them I found dry spots or felt like my horse wasn't moving quite as free as need be. I've had trouble with one horse in particular being bound up in her shoulders. No matter if I changed saddles or pads I never got the result I was looking for. I saw a marked difference in her movement after using the Saddle Right saddle pads so I tried it on my other horses as well. I ride a lot of different style of horses from short, wide calf roper types to tall, leggy, thoroughbred horses. I like that this pad helps my saddle fit them all. I don't get dry spots and I feel like it allows more freedom of movement.”
“Many years ago, I had the privilege of having Dr. Michael Freeman adjust and balance my horses; based on that experience, I was happy to try a product he developed through his many years of treating performance horses. Because my horses’ well being is my primary concern, Saddle Right Orthopedic Saddle Pads have been a key piece of my equipment almost from the company’s beginning thirty years ago. Through decades of use on the road as a professional barrel racer and roper, I can honestly say I’ve never had a concern over my saddle pad. Sore backs are non-existent in my world! Saddle Right pads meet all my needs and wants—they protect my horse, allowing circulation and free movement in the muscle groups; they come in a variety of colors to suit my preference for something flashy and attractive; and, best of all, they are extremely durable. I’m still using pads bought decades ago because the inner material never compresses or loses shape.” - Jolee Lautaret-Jordan
“SaddleRight saddle pads provide close feel, support, versatility, and style to your horse in whichever discipline you choose to ride in.” - Jade Keller
"We use SaddleRight pads on all our horses, from trainees, to working cattle, mounted shooting, you name it! We depend on this pad to protect our horse's back. The unique core material moves and recoils with the movement of the horse and acts as a plate to spread out saddle pressure more evenly. A proper fitting saddle is still very important, but the SaddleRight can help ill fit to a degree. I really like the closeness of the pad. the split in the front and rear of the spine which allows free movement in each quarter of the horse and the unheard of lifetime trade in program! Lots of color choices and options! Made in the USA!" - Matt Jobe
"SaddleRight. The best pad for all reasons and all seasons. Hot or cold, big horse, small horse, young or old, trail, show, ranch or performance the dependable SaddleRight pads give me the look and protection I want and need for my horses! Constructed with a proven orthopedic value and a unique core material that continually moves with your horse giving that professional feel, comfort and reliability for both horse and rider to do any job right!

SaddleRight provides top notch comfort, quality and durability. I love the genuine care that SaddleRight puts into every detail of their pads. I am lucky to have their support in and out of the saddle.” -Wylene Davis
"Over the years I’ve tried many different pads. Pads made from just about every type of material you can think of. Pads filled with just about every substance you can think of. None of them gave me what I was looking for. Some would compress after a while and others just didn’t work. What I was looking for was a pad that didn’t compress, didn’t interfere with my saddle fit, was thin enough to let me feel my horse and most of all, a pad that my horse liked and not only worked well in, but one I could feel he was comfortable working in too. I had just about given up and was about to settle for what was out there when I discovered SaddleRight Pads. The very first time I roped on my good horse using the SaddleRight Pad, I knew I had the pad I had been looking for.When I put my saddle on my horse with the pad on, I liked what I saw immediately. I knew my saddle fit my horse well and the pad didn’t interfere with my saddle fit at all. While riding my horse, right away I felt a difference in not only how my horse moved, but how I could feel my horse move. The pad didn’t interfere with the connection I had with my horse at all, it only enhanced it. My horse was moving freely in the pad, so the big test was how he was going to work in it. I roped about six to eight steers that first day and he felt more relaxed and comfortable on each steer. Three of my four requirements were met on the first day. As for the compressing, I can tell you that after a year’s use on many different horses and literally a few thousand steers roped, my pad not only looks new still, there is absolutely zero compression. While other pads compress, shift around and change how the saddle fits your horse, I can tell you that after a year’s use this is the same pad I put on my horse over a year ago. I have four rope horses of my own and take in horses to train for roping and the only pad I will use is on any of these horses is a SaddleRight pad." -John Samsill
"I am so thrilled with SaddleRight pads! I have been having to cinch my horses in half and move my saddles up their backs frequently through out my rides because my saddles that fit, wouldn’t stay in position. Once i started using SaddleRight pads, none of that has been done! It’s amazing how they stay where they’re supposed to and i have zero back soreness. I am a true believer in SaddleRight Pads!" -Kelsey Jo Lutjen-Treharne
