View Full Version : Jumper Pad?

What is the difference between a jumper saddle pad and a normal A/P square pad? Just sold my eq. horse and moving to the jumpers, so doing lots of shopping. :)

Nothing. :)

I'm a big fan of plain white pads for jumpers. I have Navy trim, Light Blue piping for mine. Dover has some perpetually on sale for $20 in a variety of colors. http://www.doversaddlery.com/product.asp?pn=X1-1976&ids=975968041&bhcd2=1261957934
I think you can get it as a Buy-a-Bonus for only $15

I actually have the Jumper style and the A/P style Toklat jumper pads and there is a slight difference in the design of the shape of the curve of the pad in front of the flaps, but nothing substantial. It is only noticable when the pads are laid on top of each other, otherwise you won't typically notice the difference.

nothing, really! if anything, they have just a tiny bit more length (oh, give or take half an inch :lol:) to make sure there's room to pin your number on to the pad. but really, unless your saddle has a gigantic flap, you're not going to run into an issue finding room to pin your number to any old AP pad

There is a difference if you are buying an Eskadron saddle pad. I just ordered some as a gift and the jumper pads have a more forward cut, the part in front of your saddle has a definite, noticeable curve towards the front of the horse, the A/P is square.
