Very glad I got this pad! The material is soft and smooth with a nice sheen to it. I've only used it for a couple rides and enjoyed it every time. For a size reference, I use a 17" saddle and bought the large. It fits just fine. The underside is smooth and does a great job wicking away sweat. If you're considering buying, go ahead and do it. The memory foam at the front is nice over the whithers. I had thought that there was more to it considering the price change form one with the memory foam and the one without. Don't regret the purchase though, glad I spent a little extra. The color is gorgeous, feel and use amazing. Very happy with it!
This pad is incredible, I love the color and quality. It looks great on my bay and chestnut geldings!
