mare, Rose, has been quite difficult to fit with a saddle. She
is extremely broad backed, very round, has a quite prominent
right shoulder, essentially no withers, and is just slightly
It has taken a year to find a saddle that fit both
her and myself but then I had the problem of the saddle
slipping, not only forward and backwards depending on the
terrain, but also having the saddle twist due to her right
shoulder pushing the saddle back. It was necessary to use a breastcollar and I was just getting ready to add a crupper when
my Limpet Saddle Pad arrived.
Of course I didn't do the
sensible thing and try out the new equipment in an arena but
headed straight for the hills. I then proceeded to not only
forget to put the breastcollar on, I also didn't do that last
girth check before mounting. I have never forgotten a piece of
equipment nor have I ever forgotten to check the girth.
of this matter? Not in the least. The Limpet Pad kept the
saddle in exactly the same place whether we were going uphill or
downhill and despite the fact that the girth was a hole looser
on both sides! Problem solved. Thanks to Aline and the Limpet
I love the
Pad as my saddle tends to slip to the side and the Pad prevents
this from happening. It is the only pad that I use.

I wanted to
let you know that the Limpet Saddle Pad is everything it is
advertised to be! I just bought mine for my flat backed, big
boned and heavily muscled quarter horse, Memphis. I ride him
English. He and I are a trail riding pair, but I have had
the worst time finding a saddle pad that stayed in place and did
not rub him and I have tried many. I truly wish I had tried
your product sooner!
The big test was a long trail ride this past Saturday. He had
no saddle marks on him whatsoever, there was no rubbing and no
moving of the saddlepad or saddle. I did not have to girth him
as tight and the ride for me was the most comfortable one I have
had on him. I had back surgery a number of years ago and on the
longer rides my lower back can become really achy and painful to
the point I always carry something for the pain with me, but not
on Saturday. I actually could have ridden longer! So I'm
very happy with the saddlepad, to say the least, it WORKS!

After buying a new horse and realizing my saddle didn't fit, I
bought a Limpet pad and now my saddle fits!! I did have my
saddle adjusted but continue to use my Limpet pad and use it
everyday. It has been washed many times and is still

combo. I bought a Limpet pad and it made the problem go away completely.

I have another testimonial for you. This pad is extremely
helpful for horses with a history of abuse. It’s almost magical
the way fear and anxiety melts away when you take the pain and
discomfort away. It’s a Great tool for
reestablishing the bonds of trust and friendship.

Having traveled with John Lyons and helping get his demo horses
ready, I can say the Limpet saddle pad is the best for keeping
the saddle in place and it fits every type horse. John
has done demos on everything from Paso Finos to drafts and I
never had problems fitting the saddle to the diverse, numerous
horses. I have had mine for over 5 years now and it still looks
brand new. Definitely well worth the investment!!!
My horse, Shades of Magic, would never let me mount without
his Limpet saddlepad by Happy Horse. This hot gelding TB
(Bold Ruler background) is quite particular since he is so
sensitive. He’s one of the only horses in our barn that doesn’t
need a massage because he’s wearing the correct equipment.
Thank you, Aline, for your innovative and necessary invention!

I have a young horse with a very sensitive back. We could never
find a saddle pad combination to suit her. She was always a bit
humpy when we started our lope as if she was trying to adjust
everything to be comfortable. The first time I used this pad,
she hadn’t been ridden for 4 months. When we started our lope
you could tell she was anticipating the pain that would come.
After a few strides, and no discomfort, she relaxed. No more
fidgeting and rocking! She had been under saddle for over two
years and uncomfortable all that time needlessly. Amazing!
Remington Steele*++ and I are very impressed
with your product. Remington is getting old, 24, and has
very high withers. My saddle has been shifting around on
his back lately. I was so surprised at the difference your
Limpet pad makes. Not only did the saddle stop shifting
but my stallion and I both felt much more comfortable. I
really wanted to test your product in every possible way.
I can honestly say I have not found any troubles whatsoever with
the Limpet pad. On each horse I used it on it solved a
problem, if not two! Once you have ridden with a Limpet
pad it is very hard to go back to your old slippery, slidy,

I had a terrible time finding a saddle to fit my Morgan.
With this pad and a treeless saddle, we are both so comfortable
now. Thank you so much.
--Charlie Child, AZ
While in Colorado on a horse ride, I didn't
bring my short dressage girth. While getting 3 sets of
horses ready, I didn't get that girth in the trailer!
So...I borrowed one a bit too long. Okay on the flat -
then we went on a trail ride that included a 1/2 mile downhill
switch back. The saddle NEVER moved. Very, very
impressed. Use them for my therapeutic riding program

Excellent! Solved all my problems,
saddle slipping and horse with a sore back. Thanks again.
--Peggy Scheideler, CA
I was riding up a mountain in snow when I felt something against
my boot. I looked down and my cinch was broken. I got off
and tried to fix it and couldn't. Then without thinking, I
put my boot back into the stirrup and swung up on the horse,
before I thought, what am I doing? There is nothing
holding this saddle on but this pad. Then I rode back down
the mountain without a slip. Incredible pad!
--Josh Barnes, CO
I love this saddle pad because my mare's back gets really sore.
But now my mare's shoulders are freer and she can go for hours!
I asked my Mom to buy me more! I love them.
--Cathy Fry, CA
I was the biggest skeptic in the world But!! This pad
has so improved our show horses performance and overall health
that I would gladly recommend it for any discipline. It
has become an everyday tool in our training program. I no
longer have horses with sore backs after a strenuous work out or
trail ride. I will be buying more at the Scottsdale show.
--Frances Fry, CA
LOVE THEM! Training in Arizona is hot
and these pads are the best. Perfect for young horses and
old. Highly recommended.
These are the best saddle pads ever.
Non-slip, easy to clean and very shock absorbent. I use
one on every horse I ride. Plus when you're on foal watch
and sleeping in the barn they make great pillows!!!
--Jan Lode, Calgary
I am on my second pad. I use them on my
dancing Friesians in the "The Magical World of Dancing Horses."
The Friesian, being a horse with flat withers, makes an ideal candidate for a pad that
will provide comfort and non-slippage.

I love these pads! I have been using
them for three years on all breeds of horses under all types of
conditions. As a trainer, it is important to make the
horse as comfortable as possible and these pads are great.

After an injury, I couldn't ride more than an
hour without my back hurting. The first time I went
trail-riding with a Limpet, I couldn't believe it when the sun
started going down. I had been riding for
almost three hours and my back still didn't hurt. Thank God for Limpet and thank God
that horses can see in the
My saddle no longer slips under my horse's tummy (I can't
blame falling off on my saddle anymore).

Limpet is the first pad I've ever bought that
I made money on. I had ten pads that I had paid over $100 a
piece for. When I bought this pad, I had a garage sale.
Best pad in the world!

I bought a pad last year. I loved it,
my horse loved it, my dog tore it up. I don't like having
to buy another one but my horse insisted he had to have it.
--Janet R. Prescott,
I was skeptical at first. I used a demo
for 1/2 hour. It was and is incredible. I could drop
my heels a full 1-1/2 inches more and the mare NEVER popped a
lead. The difference in attitude of this mare is
incredible. She feels good! I brought back the
demo and a check. I will tell my friends. I am

My friend and I have had your super saddle
pad for a couple of years. We immediately felt more
cushion in our saddles, as we do lengthy trail rides and comfort
is nice! So, I'm sure our horses feel better, too!
I have bought a pad each year at the Horse
Expo. I use one on my hunt saddle, dressage saddle,
Western saddle. They are the best. I was training a
filly with "mutton withers" and every saddle slipped on her
until I used your pad. They make the saddle stick like
I bought one last year for a horse with a
sore back. Nothing worked for him. Now he has no
problems or saddle sores. It is great. I love it,
and so does he.
--Kathy Puls, CA
I bought your pad at the Expo in Southern
California. It is the first pad I think I've ever owned that I
did not constantly readjust. I ride about 40 to 50 miles a
week. This has been a gift to my horse for comfort and
safety. I love this pad.
--Colleen Raty, CA
I purchased an all-purpose pad last year at
the WSHE for my "fat round" Norwegian Fjord Horse. This
pad does not slip! It is perfect for a
round-barreled, witherless horse. I can finally mount
without a mounting block. I came back for a dressage pad
this year. Thanks for such a great product.
Love the pads, or I should say, my horse
does! Thank you.
--Gordon Haile, CA
Had my Limpet for three years. I love
it. No more slipping of my saddle.
This pad really works!

introduced them to multiple people as a trial. They all

I bought one of your pads last year. I
love it! My saddle doesn't slip at all on my horse! His sore spots and "dry spots" are no longer a problem.
I absolutely believe in this pad! I
ride a Paso Fino and a Merchador Stallion.
I want my saddle to be secure!
--Rancho Linda Marchadores, CA
We have been very happy with our Limpet Pad.
It warms up quickly and stays loose through the back. We
also don't find pressure points when we remove it. No
slipping either! Thanks for a great product.
I have been using the Limpet Pad for two
years now and my horse's back has never been better.
Since I purchased my pad, my mule's saddle
does not slide or move around. It is very easy to keep
clean. Thank you!
-Gae Thomas, CA
Limpet is by far the best saddle pad I've

him. I'm sure glad we found you.

I have used this pad for 5 years, endurance,
and would highly recommend it and would use no other.
I bought the Western saddle pad last
year. It made me feel like I was floating on my horse.
I love it. I never ride with any other pad anymore.
I am just a backyard pleasure rider and I can't say enough about
this pad. Well worth the money.
My sister and I purchased a pad at the L.A.

We currently have two young Kentucky Mountain

all the time for all of our horses. We use it under
the English and Western saddles. It is truly amazing.
The horses are happier and so are we.

I bought the Dressage pad a year ago.
It washes great. I love it! And I ride
I bought the Western saddle Pad last year out
of desperation because my saddle slid all over the place.
Now it doesn't move, even with a looser girth. Washes
easily. No more sore back for my horse.

The Limpet saddle pad was the best accessory
we ever purchased for our horse. It holds the saddle in
place better than anything we ever used before.

Best pad ever!!

This is absolutely the best pad I have ever
used. No more bucking, tail wringing, etc. I use
this pad on over 20 horses and they all love it.
