    Default Back on track pads legal?

    Hi!
    I'm sorry.. but I can't seem to find it in the rule book nor on any previous posts....

    Does anyone know if it's okay to show dressage at a horse trial with a back on track saddle pad? Fleck seems to really like his, but... I don't want to get eliminated

    Thanks in advance!

    Even just pointing me in the right direction would be nice! I looked where I thought it would be, but... nada!

    My friend used hers at the Colorado CCI** last year with no problems, for both dressage and jumping.

    Sweet! I'll double check with the people when I get there, but... wanted to make sure. Don't really want to wash it more than I have to, but... need it clean for a show. He just seems a bit more comfy in it, so....

    Thanks!

    Why would it be illegal?

    I never thought about it being illegal....seems to me I've used mine in dressage before....I'm pretty sure it's no problem.

    I just wondered since it's potentially "performance enhancing". But then I figured since the fleecey pads are legal.. I don't know. Just thought they might potentially not be legal

    Potentially performance enhancing only according to the people who sell them.

    Having Phillip Dutton ride your horse is "potentially performance enhancing". Probably more so than the saddle pad. Ride on.

    Having Boyd Martin standing at ringside is potentially performance enhancing too.
    He keeps throwing me back. http://horsejunkiesunited.com/?p=63881

    Or the opposite, if you are so busy looking at Boyd, you totally forget your test/course
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    See, works both ways. Having certain people stand ringside can totally be performance reducing...
