Diamond Wool® saddle pads have a high percentage of wool content. To avoid shrinkage, do not use hot water to clean or heat to dry. Brush the pad occasionally with a curry brush. This will dislodge hair, dirt, and sweat to prolong its usefulness. Place in a well-ventilated area for efficient drying.
Machine-washing any Diamond Wool® saddle pad is not recommended. To clean pads, use a soft cloth/sponge, a mild shampoo or detergent-free soap, and tepid water. Slightly dampen the cloth or sponge and add a small amount of soap. Work up a small lather on soiled areas. Rinse with clean water. Allow to air dry.

Gracie C on Oct 14, 2018
The reviews are very good on this pad and the price is good so I thought I would try it.
Debbie D on Sep 30, 2018
Decided to go with this pad from my vets recommendations, from what I have read and seen in person, this pad should be about the same as a classic equine but at a much more reasonable price.
Kody D on Sep 15, 2018
I have several of these pads but not enough to go around for all my horses and 4H kids riding my horses. Because I want my horses to be comfortable I purchased more of these pads.

Patty V on Dec 13, 2016
I wanted a pad that would not slip around so much. It solved that problem, but caused a gall on his back which the previous pad had not done. Apparently this more or less incomprehensible felt pad is not suitable for my horse.
Dan S on Oct 29, 2016
I bought this as with relief for my mare who has an old saddle rub. This brand was recommended to me as a very quality blanket. We like it a lot.
glenda W on May 15, 2016
Diamond Wool Pads are simply the best. I have used them for many years and they are just as advertised. They wick away moisture, protect the horses back and wear like iron! You can pour the miles onto these pads and they will never let you down.
EMILY W on Jul 30, 2015
I like wool felt pads and this one should fit my short-backed horse and her round-skirted saddle

Have a nice wonderful quarter horse and she is a little older, hoping this will help her saddle settle better and comfort her while we ride.

Wool is the best for the horses back. It relieves pressure, and absorbs sweat. And the price is amazing.

I bought this pad for my other horse and it has been great. I decided when it went on sale I would purchase another.

Does it keep pressure off the withers?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2019
Looking for a pad that doesn’t slip when mountain riding. Anyone experienced this with this pad or does it “stay put”?
Perk123 on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While I think this pad is adequate for basic trail riding and barrel racing, I would not recommend it for mountain riding where your saddle will be moving back and forth a lot. I have had to stop and adjust after riding up and down hills.
Would you recommend this pad for barrel racing?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am not a barrel racer, but I wouldn't use this pad because it seems like it would be too large. We don't even use it because it's too big for our round skirt saddles and 15 hand mares. I think it's more of a work/ranch pad.
How do i measure to get the correct size saddle pad?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you go onto you-tube and type in how to measure for western saddle pads, all videos will appear showing the steps to follow.
What is the thickness?
Tereasa H on Apr 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These pads are 1 inch thick. I have 4 of them. We rope and drag calves and they have held up very well to the abuse.
What size is this pad?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This pad is available in either 30" x 30" or 32" x 32". Both sizes are one inch thick.
my horse has high withers and i currently ride with a high wither saddle pad, will this pad work for his withers?
julia on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The pad does offer some wither relief with a notch at the front of the pad.
What size should I get for my 14" barrel saddle?
Sarah P on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Measure the distance from the front of the saddle skirt to the back and then add a couple inches to see how long your pad needs to be, front to back. If your saddle has rounded skirts though, you probably want to get a pad to fit a barrel saddle.
What size would fit a 16 seat Tex tan saddle?
Allyy on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should consider the size of your horse as well as your saddle when choosing what size pad to purchase. The pad should extend out from the edges of the saddle. The saddle should not sit right on the end of the pad.
How thick is this pad?
A shopper on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1 inch, this is an excellent pad that will last many years and never gaul a horse.
What size would i need for a Percheron cross? she is more quarter horse than Percheron. Thanks!
Tiana P. on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should consider the size of your saddle as well as your horse when choosing what size pad to purchase. The pad should extend out from the edges of the saddle. The saddle should not sit right on the end of the pad. What type of riding and how long you plan to ride will help you choose the right thickness of pad.
I bought this saddle pad a couple years ago and the stitching is really starting to cone apart. Is there anyway i will be able to get it fixed or anything?
Kristina on Jan 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can patch the stitching the same way I patch my canvass panniers.. Just buy a "Speedy Stitcher" and a spool of the very heavy thread they recommend. I expect this will cost less than $20. On this job, I would recommend spacing between your stitches of 1/2 to 1 inch. These stitches should last as long as the rest of the felt itself. The bad news is that it is quite time consuming. The good news is that it is not only cheap, but your Speedy Stitcher can make lots of other repairs with your leather tack yourself.
I am currently riding in a 2" fleece saddle pad that (I think) is not good for my saddle. It causes my saddle to slide from side to side way too easily. Even when I tighten the girth very tight, the saddle still rolls around. Will this saddle pad help prevent this rolling around?
Charlotte on Nov 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The primary component is wool felt which is by far the best material to use for a saddle pad. Wool felt pads will not slip and conform to your horse’s back. Saddle pads with high wool content will breathe and reducing heat-build up.
would this help fit my saddle better? it doesnt fit well on his withers, and i think its making him not ride correctly
A shopper on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion the pad does free up the wither for a higher withered horse. However I don't think it will help much for saddle fit. Depending on how the saddle is sitting on the horses withers now it could make it worse in my opinion. Saddle fit should be the primary concern. If the saddle is pinching the shoulder area it is too narrow in the first place and the pad could make it worse. It's like wearing boots that are too snug and trying to wear them anyway with thicker socks. If the tree is too wide it may help just a little in freeing up the wither but again Its not really a pad issue that seems to be the problem. Sounds like a saddle fit issue which is very difficult to do without a knowledgeable saddle shop/tack store or saddle fitter. I personally went with a circle y flex2 tree with this pad for my hard to fit mare. So far she rides better and hasn't had any issues with soreness for the past two years. Good luck.
Is this the 2in thick pad?
Cassie M on Jul 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If it isn't 2" it's every bit of 1 3/4" ... Nice and thick. I have 2 of these. Love love love them.
What is the bottom made of? Same material as the top or...?
HANNAH S on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's all wool, top & bottom, except for the wear leather patches on the sides. Nice pad
How well does this pad stay in place? I've had issues with fleece lined pads sliding back on my horse.
A shopper on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This pad is one of the best I have used (even my expensive gel pads), and I have been riding for 45 years. It stays in place, absorption is great, very durable. Suitable for every day use and long trailrides. It has exceeded my expectations and several of my friends have purchased and are highly satisfied as well.
i would like to purchase two different sizes can i do that?
Gloria B on Dec 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. This pad is available in 30x30 and 32x32.
Can I return if the 32 is too big?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You certainly can, within 30 days of receipt so long as it's in new, unused condition with the original product tags and packaging. Here is a link to our full Return Policy:
What color is the pad?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's a dark heathered charcoal gray. Very neutral and appealing color.
Why do so many of the contour pads have a partial cutout at the withers? Doesn't the narrow strip at the front put pressure on the withers as much as having no cut out would? I'm trying to find a thick pad that relieves pressure on my QH gelding's withers and this seems counter-intuitive to me. Why not completely cut back the pad at the withers?
Christine R on Sep 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This pad is actually made up of 2 wool pads, one on each side, that are connected over the top by the leather strips. It's meant to relieve pressure all along the spine. There's extra cutout space over the withers. The leather strip that goes over the top of the withers in front, prevents the cutout from splaying open under the saddle, which is a problem I've had with most cutout pads. My thoroughbred loves this pad
what size would generally fit every horse?
mackenzie s on Sep 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It all depends on the saddle you are using I generally use a 30 inch length on a short backed horse, but some saddles are to long for that length of pad. If you want to play it safe I'd go with a 32 inch length.
what material is underneath the saddle pad?
Steph on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The construction of the pad is felt on both the top and bottom of the pad. I have two of these pads and have been absolutely pleased with both (one square and one endurance style).
Re: Diamond Wool Contour Felt Ranch Saddle Pad: My western saddle is 25" in length. My current pad is 32" in length and sits on his hips so when he moves the pad rubs his hips. I'm thinking the 30" would be a better fit (??). Any advice would be helpful - thanks!
A shopper on Aug 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I agree with you. This is a WONDERFUL PAD! You'll love it. I have a big, spotted saddle horse, with big withers and a long back, so no rubbing. Enjoy! The smaller size should work for you.
I have a 15hh paint mare that I'm doing barrels with. I'm looking for a saddle pad that's not too thick. Would any of you guys recommend this for barrels?? I was also wondering what size should I get that will fit her because the two I have right now are too big.
Lexi S on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have this pad and like it. Its pretty much an inch thick. I don't know that much as what to use for barrels, but I don't see why you cannot. As far as size my horse is only 14.2, the pad should only be 2"-3" larger than the saddle. You need some room for movement and so the saddle does not slide off the pad.
One thing with this saddle pad though, you will have to go through it and pick out burrs. It must be something from the manufacturing process, I don't know. Overall, great pad and value. I would reccomend it. I hope this helps.
When you buy it, is it grey or black? I would like to know as a review I read said that it was black instead of grey when they received it?
ThinkingHorses on Jun 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The pad is a dark grey. I can see why someone would think black but it is not. I love my pad and I am getting ready to purchase another one.

BEST ANSWER: The Diamond Wool web site has a catalog that can be downloaded for you to make a comparison.
Is this one piece construction or two sewn together?
A H on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These are two separate pieces. Each are joined by a leather piece, one down the center and another at the withers. This may sound unsatisfactory; but I can assure you Diamond Wool are great pads, they are all I buy. They are durable and I have never had one separate, nor have we ever had problems with the stitching. I would highly recommend them to anyone who uses a horse daily or at least frequently.
How thick is this pad?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's prob about an inch thick! I love it, I barrel race and rope as well work on a ranch and I use it for everything!
Can you tell me what type of felt is used on this pad? Is it a 10 or 11 or a 15? I've done some research and the 10 or 11 are great as they are a bit softer than the 15.
Amy B on Jul 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello Amy B.,
I don't know how to answer your specific question, but I bought this pad to overcome soreness to my horse's back caused by a Professional's Choice pad that was too long and lumpy. The other pad was making her tighten her muscles to avoid the discomfort and rubbing and she had a bump forming from the tightness. Since using this pad, all of that has gone away and I see no signs of hair being rubbed off. She now has gone back to enjoying the saddle and her gait has smoothed out. I was very surprised what a huge difference this pad made. It is a pretty nice pad, sturdy stitching and to the touch, doesn't appear too rough. MKO
