Enter content here  Nov, 3rd, 2015: Hi, my name is Tanya and I purchased a Protector saddle  pad from you.  I have tried it and found that my horse is still not working right in it. I was wondering if I could get a return authorization number for it?  I think it's me or the horse, I've heard nothing bad about your pads.  Thank you
 
  Hello Tanya,  You are welcome to return the Protector & the RA is XXX .  I have a number of riders send me pictures of their horse with saddle & pad to have me check their use of it, etc.. Even experienced Riders are often lost when it comes to proper saddling. Add to that a system that positions their saddle & requires they balance themselves by using the front balance shims and many folks need help. Sorry the Protector wasn't a quick fix for you or your horse.   Len

Oct. 13, 2015    Hi Len,  We got to use them both last weekend for 3 days of riding. The used ProCutter Corrector pad we had bought for my husbands Mule, took care of all the issues with his saddle pad problems. And the Contoured Protector new that I bought from you worked awesome with my mule's saddle pad situations. We're both very happy with your product, it took care of the whole problem.

Turn & Burn Saddle Pad,  HI, I was just wondering? I have an appendix gelding that I barrel race & he's about 16 Hands, with very high withers. Is the Turn & Burn saddle pad something that would help my saddle fit him better?  Dalton

 Hi Dalton,   The turn & Burn Protector would help your saddle work better. The chances of FIXING YOUR PROBLEM of PINCHING WITHERS is another matter. You can pinch a withered horse thru anything with most of today's saddles. Anything being padding, shims, flex panels, or Protective shields like my system has. When the foot of your bars in front don't reach the upper ribcage then the squeeze is continual in pinching the withers. A huge tree bar will still pinch. That is why I make saddles with trees that have the twist to let the foot of the bars be the primary contact and leave space at the top of the bars in front for the withers. Then you can spread the pressures out with the Protective shields and have a free moving happy horse.  Regards, Len

Mr Len Brown 

   I have put your pad to the test, I ride daily and very hard, I work on a ranch where we run yearlings and riding is a constant. I have put this pad on different horses with different builds and this is the finest pad I have ever used. I also have a CSI and the CSI will still leave the white marks on the withers after a while. Yours doesn't and my horses like it. I realize I have only had this pad for a few months but it still works well and holds its form while others would already be fatigued and fatiguing my horses.  I will be getting more of these pads as I like to have specific equipment for each horse. By the end of this summer my  Protector Pad will have had more use than most people ever put on a pad.  Thank you very much,  Dave Huddleston,  Horseshoer  Caprock, New Mexico

Subject: Sore back and swollen loins resolved!

 

Hi Len,

 

I wanted to express gratitude for the time you spent helping me work out my gelding’s sore back issues. 

Typically, after coming back from a trail ride, he would be tender and swollen over his loins, with his spinal processes inflamed and bulging.  “Back bumps” as I would call them.  I tried many saddles,  probably one a year for the last several years, until I settled on your Patriot saddle with the ProTecTOR pad.  My horse has a somewhat long backed, with a prominent spine.  I knew I wanted a saddle with shorter bars, and

a wide gullet to provide spine clearance the whole length of his back.  The Patriot/Corrector pad, together, fit the bill and provided the back relief he needed.

 

I have also been working on collecting his walk, and rounding his back, as you had previously suggested.  This would reduce the side to side friction that happens when a horse walks out too fast and hollow backed. Sage Advice!  He is much freer in his movement. No more swollen loins, and best of all....His topline is filling out and coming up.  I cannot say enough, other than thank you.

 

I treasure my horses, and also treasure my best tack.  I love the Patriot, and have just ordered my 3rd Corrector pad.

 

Happy Trails, Len.
