Customer reviews & feedback

From Deborah Burns via Facebook

Love our PicHa Pad. He’s moving positively and forward in gear I never knew he had and accepting contact beautifully! Wither clearance had been an issue for me with many driving saddles, no such worries now, and he’s clearly happier in his work.

From Jackie Herd via Facebook

I was so impressed with the results I bought one for my friend!

From Rosemary Neale via Facebook

Just to say I was enormously impressed with the difference in the way Sebastian went with the Pic-ha pad. Sceptical at first (you know me!) the difference in his way of going was immediate and huge! He was softer, able to stretch through his back, accepted the contact freely and willingly and went forward so much better. Martin and I are passionate about correct saddle fit and this does the same thing for the driving horse or pony. Well done Paul Chambers and Martin Wilkinson.
