I am very pleased with my Hilason wither relief saddle pad. It adds support/cushioning for my aging horse's back, since he has lost a little top line. Works well with my dressage and my jumping saddle.
Great pad for the Treeless saddles!
I love the comfort of my memory foam saddle pad. and it helps reduce slipping of my treeless saddle. However, even with mounting block and tacky-too cinch, I still experience some slippage. I would recommend that the top of the pad also be covered with tacky-too material

using a mounting block to prevent the saddle from slipping. A non-slip saddle pad is a MUST when riding in a treeless saddle, and this pad is a good quality and value for the price.
LOVE this pad! Zoey is always sore either on her high withers or on her spine. Gave his pad a try and had PERFECT fit, no slip (shocking for this horse!), and no sore back! I was a little nervous at first about the crinkling sound the pad made in my hands, as Zoey is deathly afraid of the 'plastic' noise, but the whole ride it didn't make a single sound. Still can't believe my saddle was in exact spot where I placed it when we got home and my horse wasn't sore for the first time since we got her
I bought this pad in a different color. LOVE the pad on my horse who sweat something awful. LOVE the pad on my other horses as well. I now have a second hand Hilason Treeless saddle and it fits perfectly onto the pad. The only negative thing I have is that it's a little thin/short for my regular saddles.

This saddle pad is well-made and fits my Hilason treeless barrel racing saddle perfectly. The one thing that could be improved upon is that the velcro straps used to secure the front of the pad to the saddle could be longer. When my saddle is properly positioned on the pad, the use of the velcro straps causes the front of the saddle pad to curl backwards. Overall, I am satisfied with the pad and it does help to keep the saddle from slipping. I still need to use a non-slip cinch and mount by
I love these saddles and have several Hilason Treeless English and Western, but I need to get 2 more Western saddles in a 15 inch seat- that would be the 16 inch size that you sell
I found the quality to be very good but the claimed density that is "retained" to be nonexistent. The pad had no density whatsoever and became paper thin with no cushion retained of any kind when even the weight of a synthetic saddle was placed on it. It is not usable for anything other then short easy rides with a very light rider and saddle. I paid $80 for mine and only used it one time.
I love it! It did not slip on my horse or out from underneath my saddle and it kept my horse cool! Highly recommend these saddle pads, they are awesome! Thanks again.
Pad looks nice, but functionality is not its strong suit. The pad slipped out from under the saddle constantly, the "tacky" layer was sliding all over. The velcrow tabs that can be attached to their treeless saddle do not meet up in the correct place to hook to the little d rings where I attach my breast collar so when they recommended I attach them there the tension on the velcrow tabs was so much that I feard that they would pull completely out of the pad's stitching.
