    I think if your purchase is more than US$180 it has duty taxes assessed. Somewhere around that amount.

    Yes, it was a customs fee. Good to know. In the future, I will only order one pad at a time.

    I just ordered one from Smartpak. Custom color with 2 color piping. It is the Eurofit jumping pad with front and back trim. $285, free shipping. I was quoted $230 from Equestrian Products and if I have to pay a $49 import tax at the post office, I'm just going to stick with Smartpak. They back their stuff.

    I'll add to the cautionary note...I got my annual bonus and went all out and ordered 3 pads from them. Two were great, but one arrived as a jumping pad when I had ordered it as a dressage pad. I asked how to ship it back and received a prompt response...and that was the last response I got from them. They haven't refunded the pad, haven't confirmed that they have received it, and haven't answered my emails asking for a status update. Not great business practice in my book!

    Anybody order from this Epshop joint recently? I configurated an endurance pad and it priced out at over $400. For that kind of grip, if they're still not answering emails I'm gonna give it a miss.

    I ordered one this spring. Figuring out how to pay was an adventure and no they never directly answered by emails. However the half pad I had made was very nice. I may buy another in the spring in another color. Mine was approximately $135 so not as expensive as yours.

    Thanks. My proposed 400-smacker pad had about 173 different kinds of braid and velvet and green sheepskin and whatnot. I was looking at Epshop because the US distributor -- World Equestrian, I think it's called -- cancelled my order without explanation. Thought I'd try my luck elsewhere. Ah well.

    I ordered my last one from Mon Cheval (http://www.mon-cheval.com/). It took about the same amount of time as Epshop, but I paid through PayPal and they were prompt with communication.

    I ordered one from them this last spring when they had a 20%off sale it turned out perfect quick shipping no issues. It's my third from them and I'll buy from them again.

    Me too. I've ordered 4 pads over the past 4ish years? All came out flawlessly. When I order though, I send an email directly with exact description of color, size, shape, specs, using their language (piping 1, 2, 3, etc)

    Works like a charm and I always get the 20% off. Just ask for it ;0)

    I have ordered pads from them 3 separate times. One of the 3 pads came close enough to what I ordered that I was fine with it (mixed up the piping colors, but no big deal other than they had not read the order correctly).

    The other 2 orders were pretty screwed up ---

    I ordered a large dressage pad and it came in a small size. Totally unusable with an 18" saddle. I tried multiple times to contact them about returning/replacing it, but no response -- so my $90 pad sits unused. I should sell it on ebay, but I don't know how and I am angry that I have to deal with it.

    The last order sent me a European jumping pad instead of a dressage pad!!! Not even the same shape.

    So: 3 orders: 1. wrong colors, 1 wrong size, 1 wrong discipline.

    Be careful with this site..... There does not seem to be any recourse to their constant incorrect orders.

    I'm seeing more and more for sale used. I think the mattes trend is on it's way out, if you ask me. I see more and more USG pads at shows and in clinics.

    I've never been a sheepskin fan, they always look dirty when they get used regularly. JMHO. It's always been way too much padding for my custom fit saddles anyways
