Choose from six tartan plaids (or custom Clan) and pair them with white, black or navy blue binding. Available in AP/Close Contact and Dressage styles. The Highlands wash and dry like a champ and have warrior good looks. Can you hear the bagpipes?…. We can!!

    Recently I was referred to Jen by a mutual friend. We were experiencing some issues with my daughter’s mare. But after talking to Jen, I decided to purchase this pad for my gelding too. He is an anxious horse who often trips and has even fallen a couple of times at the lope. We attributed this to his nervousness and just assumed it was “just him”, as he has had serveral vet checks and neurological exams. After riding in the new pad, he no longer trips, freeing his shoulders helped his gait tremendously, but moreover, he is not near as anxious. I have especially noticed improvement in his transitions and pattern work. Before Jenx he used to anticipate departures and get over collected during an equitation pattern as he became more and more nervous about what he would be asked to do next. Since riding in this pad, he has become noticeably more relaxed, he no longer gets anywhere near as anxious about his patters and he is a much happier mount. Thank you, Jen! We can’t wait to see what your pads do for our mare!
