I've just placed another order for 2 additional "The
Corrector" pads. I import warmbloods to the U.S. primarily for the Dressage and Hunter/Jumper
markets. It's been a real ordeal to get our saddles to fit all the different types I've
imported and trained. With "The Corrector", I don't have the need for all the
different type saddles and pads and what not. I primarily use 1 or 2 different H/J saddles and the
same in the dressage saddles, dramatically reducing my saddle inventory.
I've used this pad to help with saddle fitting issues in both disciplines and can't begin
to tell you what a difference it has made. I've seen horses that are so sore and miserable
(actually becoming lame from saddle fitting issues in some cases) really improve in movement,
jumping ability and changes in the muscle development over their backs.
I can't say
enough good about "The Corrector" pad. Riders and their horses would be
well served to investigate what you have to offer!

He then promptly bought one for his wife a horse trainer and Equine Physiotherapist! One
week later, he called and ordered the std. size for himself. These were bought at my reg. price because the last

| KAROLINE'S TRAINER DIDN'T LIKE THE CORRECTOR.
|READ KAROLINE'S STORY AND GET an IDEA of HOW A SMART HORSE WILL GET OUT OF PAIN, ANY WAY HE CAN.
BOY DID I LEARN MY LESSON!@!
Len, My Trainer doesn't like the pad, doesn't believe in it, and somehow my horse ended up being
tacked up w/out it over the past month or two. We do jumpers if you'll remember.
I'll bet you I spent $6,000 on Vet bills trying to figure out why Batman, who is 15 this year,
kept coming up lame. He's been poked and prodded, injected, acupunctured, chiropracted, etc. etc., but no matter what
we did he kept showing lame. (I got thrown off another horse 3 months ago & got a concussion so I wasn't paying
attention to what my trainer was doing.)
I got on Batman and he walked to the ring with his head down, like he was actually depressed. I was practically
kicking him to go to the ring, and when I started to trot him, sure enough he was lame and didn't want to move at
all. I said to the trainer: "let's see if he's lame without a rider, let's lunge him." Sure enough,
not only NOT LAME, but running and bucking. Hmmn?
They brought out another Jumper Saddle Pad, I got on, still lame. I said "Bring me my Black Pad" (Corrector with
a Sock) which I'm surprised my trainer didn't throw in the trash. Here it comes, all dirty and full of cobwebs,
we put it on.
At first, he was still
a little lame, but I kept going. Then I remember you said to let him canter / gallop and stretch out, and after once around
the ring he was running away with me, tossing his head, and bucking. I was afraid to do too much, but at one point I
had to break him down to the trot, and he was literally running away with me at the trot, powerhourse trotting like a dressage
A few moments earlier I told my trainer
that at 15, it was probably time for hm to go out to pasture and be retired!!
Then, when I was done riding, we have a little turnout and when I took his bridle off, he literally
jumped straight up in the air like a bucking bronco, and with his front legs three/four feet off the gound let out the
biggest buck you've ever seen, he jumped and bucked three or four times and actually fell down he was so wild!! He's
okay, but I was a little worried he hurt himselft feeling sooooo good!!
Anyway, I learned my lesson, thank you so much for your incredible product! I bought the second
one, just in case the first one gets thrown away or mysteriously disappears!!! ha ha ha!! Attached
is a picture of Batman , happily jumping.
Thanks so much, Karoline Sauls,

FANTASTIC news !! We went second, and were double
clear and quite fast in the 1.20 meters, and thre were about 40 in the class. We were standing first the entire time, and
THE LAST GUY IN THE CLASS BEAT US!! we got second!! Should I be unhappy?
He feels fantastic! ! I got the new Hunter fleece Pad in the mail and haven't
even gotten it out of the box yet, but we will try it tomorrow! One more week of showing, this week at the Del Mar Horse Park,
right down the street. Perhaps a video to follow?? Will Try!!
Thanks so much again, Karoline Sauls

Hi Len, I have just purchased the english corrector from
you and went for my first trail ride on my mare yesterday (an arabian with a dip in her back) with my 15 year old daughter
who has problems with her australian saddle staying put on her donkey and his girth rubbing him raw, so I let her test ride
the Corrector. I took the shims out, and she had no trouble throughout the ride with her saddle sliding and her donkey
had no raw spots from the girth with she was done with the ride. Im letting her keep the corrector and we are selling
the Saddleright pad she was using with the saddle.

Thanks so much for shipping me another Corrector Pad. I do dressage and my daughter
does eventing. I have read about your pads before but read a discussion on the Chronicle of the Horse BB a month or
two ago about someone trying to get a saddle to fit a sharkfin withered TB. One of the posters recommended your corrector
pad. I went to your website and read all about your pad. It seemed like a good solution for my daughter's
horse so I bought one. My daughter's horse has very high withers, an atrophied topline, hollows behind the shoulders
and big shoulders. He was a successful intermediate event horse when I bought him but his musculature indicated that
his saddle didn't fit. He looked like the horse with saddle fitting issues on your website. I bought a Devoucoux
jumping saddle and a County dressage saddle specifically for him and had them fitted to his back. He was very hard to
fit when they tried to fill in the area next to the withers to get wither clearance. Your pad has helped provide protection
for his shoulders and raise the saddle up in the front for wither clearance and to keep my daughter from getting pitched forward.
He has been going better and better and his topline has been filling out since she has been using your pad. My daughter
is thinking that maybe she can now take out one of the shims in the front as he has finally started to fill in behind the
I have another prelim Event horse that fits your description of
the one sided horse perfectly. Although his strong side is opposite from your example. I have been rehabbing him
and have been having trouble getting him to take his left lead at the canter and holding it. He keeps switching as we
go around turns. One day he was particularly bad and I realized that my girth was not tight enough and the cantle was
fishtailing to the left over his spine. He was scooting sideways trying to avoid the pain. His saddle was also
specifically fit to him and has been checked multiple times. I took the advice from your website and switched to a non
elastic girth, adjusted my stirrups and used my daughters corrector pad with the shims on the left. He took both leads
perfectly and held the canter without switching. He is the reason I ordered the second pad.
Thank you so much for inventing this pad. It seems to be the missing link in getting both these horses
sorted out and working up to their potential.

I bought your corrector
pad with a sock just under a year ago, fantastic product. We recently moved to Tasmania- the small island south of Australia.
I have recently seen a horse down here with saddle fit problems as I do Equine Touch.
I lent her my corrector and in less than 1 week the soreness had disappeared. This particular lady had been in contact
with Linda Parelli to try and fix the problem - her horse used to try and attack the air pad she was using - and they say
horses can't talk.
The only problem is that I see so many saddle
fit problems and I am always lending mine out - no one has heard of them down here.
Cheers, Nicole- Tasmania

We have an
8 yr old thoroughbred gelding who after a very short racing career, an injury and a 3 year lay-up, is now in training for
equitation jumpers. He is 17.3 hands and has immensely high narrow withers.
After wrorking with 4 different saddles. We (and a few fairly well "saddle
educated" barn members) have come to the conclusion that our Courbette
Alpina fits him the best. (the other 3 saddles we tried were a Crosby Prix de Nations, a Nice close
contact as well as a Henri de Rivel close contact) The problem has been rubs (sometimes raw and bleeding) on the sides of
his withers. It has gotten to the point where I'm afraid to really ride him for fear he is hurting under my seat.

|wide withers with a WIDE TREE, NOTHING BUT PINCH !
|WIDE ENGLISH TREES DON'T WORK ON ANY HORSE
We have tried many different types of pads and at the
moment are using a quilted square pad, with wither cut out, with a Cashel Wedge Foam pad over it also cut out completely around
It seems that if
we have a saddle with a narrow enough tree so that we get good wither clearance, it is too narrow for his back and he
gets sores below the withers along his spine. as well as it is obviously extremely uncomfortable for him and we cannot get
any real smooth gaits or bending!
we put a wide enough saddle on him so that his spine and back are comfortable there is not enough wither clearance. Which
brings us to where we are now..... padding up to hold the saddle high enough to clear and keeping the pads cutback from his
withers so he doesn't get rubs from the pads being pressed on top of his withers.
It is quite a "makeshift " solution and will not be feasible next year
when I hope to start the show circuit her on Long Island. Kimme
We wanted to really give the Corrector a good test before emailing
you with progress.
The first day we used the pad, with the front shims, and nothing else. As I was still concerned about the rubbing on his
back I just trotted for about 20 minutes
and left it at that, anxious to get the saddle off and see what his back was like. Well! Let me tell you. I thought I was
going to cry I was so excited!!! Not a hint of any rubbing . Completely even sweat marks under the entire Corrector, not to
mention the fact that he had felt more balanced and supple when I rode him than he ever has!!!!!!
I have been riding him every
day since we got the corrector, using the front shims and just a simple baby pad over it. We are getting up to regular workouts
including jumping. His back is just wonderful. He is bending and coming down into the bit more quickly and easily than ever
before. I used to have to "warm him up" for at least 20 minutes to get him to grudgingly agree to move the way he
does almost from the instant I get on him now since I am using the Corrector. He is like a different (and much better and
I cannot thank you enough!!! You have given us more than you can ever know. I am once again confident in knowing that I can
ride to my heart's content without constantly being worried he's bleeding under the saddle, and Victor... well if
he could ... I'm sure he'd thank you too... for taking the hurt and frustration out of being ridden!!!
Again from both of us... thank you thank you.. thank you!!!
