All of our mules (and horses) on our pack strings use your
Dixie Midnight pads. They keep our mules and horses cooler
and more comfortable while they are working, and they work a
Thanks for making the best pads!!

I love my Dixie Midnight pad! I have used it many times without any
other pad, and find it works great and really does keep the horse
cooler, and the saddle stays absolutely dry. I've also used it with
another pad, and the pad stays completely dry too.
The smooth side goes
against the saddle, and the bumpy side to the horse. The bumpy side
is soft, though, not abrasive at all and the horses find it
I love mine, it has
worked beautifully for years.
I purchased my Dixie Midnight this past year and it is really doing
a good job with keeping my horses' back cool and keeping my Skito
Dryback clean and dry. I live in the desert near
I purchased a vent pad at Equitana in Melbourne Australia. I
am very pleased with it and want another one.
Please provide details of Victoria Australia stockists.

Thank you very much for sending the fantastic saddle pad. My
horse sweats a heck of a lot and he came back dripping Saturday but
the spot where the pad had been was so much drier than the rest of
him. He must have been so much more comfortable and my saddle
pad was clean and dry. It was lovely washing the No-Sweat
with just the hose and having it dry for the next
Delivery from Florida to
the United Kingdom was really quick, too!
Many many thanks for the
wonderful pad – I love it and may have to keep it under lock and
key and lots of people keep eyeing it up!
Yours really really

I love it. I can't believe how great the Dixie Midnight pad
is. After 13 sweaty rides my beautiful new Skito pad still looks
like new. My friends can't believe it either.

Just wanted to thank you for getting my pad off to me so quickly!
It surprised me to see it arrive on Saturday, when I had just
ordered it 2 days before. I really appreciate your 'rush' effort so
that I will have it for my trip this week.... it works
perfectly with my SportsSaddle and Skito pad. I will gladly
recommend your pad AND FRIENDLY SERVICE to my friends!

I just came off a
moderately paced 75 miler, first ride for the season and first
endurance-ride with my Dixie Midnight pad.
I had tried another
"cures everything" pad, and it had sored Tempo up horribly, only 3
weeks out from the ride. Did the Chiro thing, and put DMSO on his
back twice.Weeelll, one week later after riding, basically all the
top layer of hide peeled off his back. The hair stayed on all but a
couple of places, the DMSO and "other" pad did quite the number on
I had just gotten my DM
pad, and it didn't seem to cause any issues with the "bald" spots.
I watched Tempo's back like a hawk and decided to try the 75. Not
only did his back stay fine, without any issues, he didn't have
heat bumps, for the first time! I can say that the Dixie
Midnight pad worked for Tempo very well. Thank you SO much!.

I use your Dixie Midnight pad on my horses for every
conditioning and competition ride and have been for 3 or 4 years
now (and been speaking very highly of your product) The
caretakers puppy stole one of the pads last month when someone
dropped it on the way to the saddle rack when untacking a
horse...by the time she got back (about 30 feet and 30 seconds
later), the pad was gone and the very cute but very mischievous 10
month old Golden Retriever puppy was no where to be seen and we
haven't seen the pad since - and we've looked
So...I need another
pad. Along the way I tried another brand that was cheaper but
found it stiffer and rougher in texture so really prefer yours.

I had to sit right down and let you know how much I not only enjoy
my Dixie Midnight No Sweat Vent Pad, but how much I enjoy the
personal service. Here in the Pacific NorthWest you'd
be called a great guy, down there I imagine a good ol' boy...but
it's always a pleasure to talk to someone as cheerful and friendly
I absolutely love my
Dixie Midnight No-Sweat Vent Pad and so does my horse. I've
tried others, but none live up to the promises of your
product. My beautiful bay gelding gets quite a workout every
week and I've been using my Dixie Midnight for a year now. I
got it to keep my saddle pad nice and clean, but I discovered three
things that are even more important than that:
My horse stays cooler
and his sweat pattern is even. My saddle or pads never slip
and there are no broken hairs on his loin. This tells me that
Gunner likes your product too.
I love the both
convenience and cleanliness. When we're camping, I just
plunge it into a bucket of water and hang it over the high line for
a few minutes---at home it's a hosing over the nearest fence.
Funny thing is that my saddle blanket only looks new on the bottom
side...the top is getting kinda ratty looking. It's time for
a new one.
And it's time to get a
Dixie Midnight for my husband too.
Thanks for a fabulous
and innovative product.
God bless you and
Susan H. (Trail/Endurance Rider)
I've really enjoyed the vent pad; it does everything you say.
All the dust, dirt and sweat is wicked away from my new saddle
pad. My horse's back is sweaty with no dry spots, but not
heated. And cleaning up is quick and easy.
Joan (Trail Rider)
I just wanted to let you know that my friend and I LOVE the DM pads
we purchased in last year. I have used mine under my Sports
Saddle and my bareback pad, both have stayed clean and dry.
Thank you for a wonderful product!
Lisa S. (Endurance rider)
One of your Dixies even went way across the world to me -- to
Holland to be precize. And I love it. Not that we got a lot of hot
summers but I've got dirty horses and after riding I hose it down
and it's clean again. I've had a lot of different remarks about the
pad, but the clean pad convinced them, only the price held them
back. But that's Dutch isn't it?
Ms. Kuhl (Dressage/Trail Rider)
Ours works GREAT! My husband has a felt pad so he gets to use it
and it sure has kept that pad clean. The sweat can run down the
mares sides and we still have a nice, dry felt pad.

I've had mine about a year now and WOW! it is THE best deal around!
I use it on the horse, then throw the "pretty one" on top! Just
hose and air dry after every ride! LOVE THE THING! I've even got
mine cut for a western pad configure but I use it under my english
tack as well!
Alison L. (Trail Rider)
Thanks Karl! I finally got to ride with mine today. WOW! No sweaty
stinky pad & one very happy horse! We're both going to enjoy
this pad. My trainer thought it looked pretty nice. Bet
you'll be getting an order for more before long!
Cindy B. (Trail Rider)
Just wanted to let you know that I received a Dixie Midnight
pad for Christmas (from my husband) and went out today for my first
ride with it... it is grand! all I needed to do when we returned
was brush my horse, hose off his muddy feet and we were good to go!
I imagine he was more comfortable as well. I hosed off the
pad andit's ready for the next time - hopefully
Thank you for such a
Shellie B. (Trail Rider)
Well, I ordered one several months ago for my son's new
roping horse as I was concerned about the neoprene pads alot of the
ropers use heating up too much.
I have been very impressed with it. It works just as Karl says, and
its so easy to clean, just hose it off when your done. As soon as
my foundered horse becomes sound enough to ride again, I am going
to order another one for him. It really is nice to take off the pad
and its DRY!!!
I like mine also - a lot less laundry!! Keeps the horse cooler as
it promised, too.

For once a product and manufacturer that both do exactly what they
say they will. No hype, no nonsense, just exactly what is stated is
done. From the quality of the product to the service, both during
and after purchase. Having said that, anyone who knows me
personally, knows there are very few products or manufacturers that
I am willing to recommend without reservation and this is one of
