          I bought this pad to fit my "shark fin" withered OTTB and boy was it a good find! The pad fits like a glove and the multipled sections on the billet strap ensure that the pad lies in just the right spot. The fabric has held up great in wash and cleans up easily. If this came in more colors and stich patterns my wallet would be in for a serious hit!

          Comments about Dura-Tech® V-Free® Dressage Pad:

          First off, I have to say that I LOVE the divided billet straps. I'm not sure why other companies don't do this as it keeps the pad in place and you can do away with the annoying straps. I like the V wither design as well - doesn't rub or slip. Now for the criticisms: I find the outer cotton to be rough. I'm sure this is part of what makes it durable, and I have found that it has softened up a bit after several washings, but just something to be aware of if you're used to other pads that are softer. My biggest issue with the pad is that the black pad is not colour fast. I found that the dye was wearing off under the saddle where my billets and flap rest after just two washings. I wash cold, delicates and hang to dry, so I know it has to do with the dye used for the black pad. I have a Back on Track black pad that only started to shed dye after about 3 years. If they can select a better dye in the future then I'd have no complaints.

          • Q:

            Does this pad have extra padding under the shoulder or side area, called a "rib support"? A customer commented that the other V Free dressage pad (Techno dry one) has that feature.

              As far as I could see there is no extra padding on this pad. I bought it because I like the withers relief design.

            • A:

              No, it doesn't have that, but is much heavier and stiffer than the average
              pad. It has a long drop and it gives the withers plenty of room so it does
              not bunch up like a lot of pads do when you try to adjust them.

              No, it doesn't. It is evenly padded throughout.
              It is a nice pad

            Are these pads filled with a foam, cotton batting or perhaps a heavier felt. How thick or heavy are they.
