NO, I do not recommend this item. I bought a pink one like in the photo a couple of years ago and loved it. I needed a pad with a little "give" to contour the mare's back. I also do not have tons of money to spend on alot of different pads for all the horses and mules we use to ride and pack with...so this one was very affordable. However, I have since bought another in 2022 last month, two actually because I like the pink one so much. They were supposed to be brown (they were tan) and the quality has severely declined unfortunately. The pad lining is thinner, the canvas is cheaper and the sheepskin underneath is thin and cheap and comes off when brushing the dirt and sweat off after a ride. Very disappointed. I even called Derby Originals (manufacturer) to try and figure out why...but they never returned my call. I do not recommend this pad anymore! But, I do highly recommend Chewy!! They are great!
