Thanks Len for the design. You
have saved the horse owners alot of money in saddle purchases with this wonderful Corrector!
am so sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you about my corrector pruchase. I love my pad and think everyone
that has a horse should have one. Here are my thoughts on your Corrector.
I found the ad for The Corrector, in the HorsePower Magazine,
and wondered about this new Pad. I had been looking at different pads for quite some time so I decided to visit
the website and email Len. He was so helpful and truthful. Finally afer careful consideration....(I never jump into anything
too fast) I decided to get my own Corrector. I have a long, low backed horse and had trouble getting my Western Showsaddle
to fit him properly as he got older and his wither became more prononced. Thus he would get a sore-back after a full day of
showing. If I rode him mainly English he seemed to be fine...but that western saddle just was not doing him any favors.
As you know, a new Western Show Saddle is not cheap, so I thought; The Corrector may be the answer to my prayers for my wonderful
gelding. I purchased the Corrector in January and noticed a difference in the first ride!! I was amazed at how free he
moved and he was much more willing to do things for me. (He had been refusing to pivot to the right) The pain was not
there and he was very happy. He pivoted and sidepassed with ease. The only thing that I had changed was The Corrector.
We started showing Feb 1st
and at the end of the Q.H. Show Series (3 sets of weekends in Feb and Mar) he and I ended up Reserve Novice All-Around
Champions. We showed in Hunter Under Saddle, Hunt Seat Equitation, Showmanship, Western Pleasure, and Horsemanship. Long
days starting at 5am and ending at 7pm. He did great and his attitude remained cheery! He gave me his all and them some. Now I use my Corrector on my young mare. I love the shims....they are a must in my book
if you are riding more than one horse and if you are using more than one saddle. My work saddle fits nothing like my show
saddle, so it is great to have the adjustability.
In my opinion, everyone should have a Corrector or two and use it on every horse. It was the smartest purchase I have made and would not be without it. A horse's back is
too valuable to mess with and when their back hurts, their attitude can be rotten. My guy is back to his old happy self and all because of a saddle pad. Isn't that something?
Thanks Len for the design. You have saved the horse owners
a lot of money in saddle purchases with this wonderful Corrector!

P.S. THANKS FOR THE HELP OVER THE PHONE AFTER I RECEIVED MY CORRECTOR. YOUR ADVICE REALLY HELPED
ME MAKE SURE THAT I WAS GETTING THE PROPER FIT.
I just wanted to let you know that I love the Envelope pad. Before
I was using the CorrecTOR with a foam type saddle pad on top.
sometimes the saddle pad would shift as I was putting on my saddle.
With the Envelope pad this does not hoppen and besides the CorrecTOR
STAYS CLEAN. Thanks again! Melissa Peabody
I read on of your ads in a magazine. After reading your
entire website, I convinced my friend to buy one, since she was looking for the perfect pad. The pad made sense to me.
I liken it to using a snowshoe, spreading the weight of the rider to eliminate the pressure points. She bought one this
past summer, her name is Kathy Burg-Westberg. When she first used that pad I was there and witnessed how well her
horse responded. He was a different horse!
Amy Galipo, Franklin,
I have the CorrecTOR Pad with
shims for my English saddle and just love it. Now I want to purchase one for my husband's western saddle. Thanks so much for
your help, Connie Burgdorf
P.S. My english pad solved all my
problems for my Tennessee Walker mare. Just couldn't get a
saddle to fit her and this did the trick.
I ordered a corrector pad late last fall and of course winter has been here and
I haven't done much riding so I haven't been able to try my pad much. I have used it this week while checking
beef cows. Both Jackson (the horse) and I have been very pleased. He rounds his back into the saddle and
his canter and trot have improved drastically!
Again we thank you for
a wonderful product.
neighbors are getting into roping and they sounded interested in the correctors also. I will let them try mine and maybe
they will send you an order.

Hi Len, this is Karen Smith
in Church Hill, TN.
You may remember talking with me on the phone. I
recently received my LG. Western Corrector and was able to try it out this past Saturday. I just wanted to let you know that
it worked wonderfully on my 8 year old TN. Walking Horse stallion! The ride we took should have been a good test for
the Corrector also. We rode a 7 hour round trip ride up in the mountains, and there was quite a lot of climbing up the
mountains. The trail was rocky and steep in some places. I never had to adjust my saddle while everyone else kept having
to stop and re-tighten cinches. After getting to the top, of course, we had to come back down but traveled an easier
downhill grade on a gravel road. I used the Corrector with a lightweight wool blanket on top. My husband and I were both
curious to pull the saddle from him at the end of the day and see if he had rubbed places on him as usual, or if his
back was sore to press on it. Amazingly, he had no rubbed or galled places and I could press on his back anywhere and
he showed no sensitivity or soreness.
Before, after riding, I could press on his back and he would give to the pressure
some. The place on his shoulder that was still not completely healed but had most of the hair growing back was also
surprisingly no different than when we started out that day, so it didn't even rub that place any! My husband
and I were both impressed!
When the Corrector arrived in the mail, my husband took one look at it and said I have probably wasted my
money. But I was hopeful, and yes, it did the trick! Just wanted to let you know and thanks for your time and explanations
on the phone. I will be letting friends know how well it worked, as they saw it and were curious as to "what in
the world it was for, and how and if it worked".
( I have been using the Corrector everytime we trail ride
and it is still working like it is supposed to.)
Thanks again! Sincerely, Karen Smith & Pride's Grey Thunder
Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly.
I did as you said in your email and the Eli Miller saddle did very
well. I rode my horse for about an hour today. She gaited
well and was very relaxed. I think I was not placing the
CorrecTOR far enough forward.
Now I want to order another Corrector pad, no shims, and I want another of the
Socks to put it in to keep it clean when in use.
Thank you, Lee Pemberton Staunton, VA.
I do not know if you remember me, I e-mailed you a couple of times and purchased a
corrector pad. I was the overweight women with the older PasoFino. I had the Don West saddle. I love the
corrector pad, it works great. No sore backs at all.
Liz Estocin, Central Islip, NY
Len, THANKS for the pad. My
Paso Fino mare is moving so freely now that
am using the Corrector. I was "the first on the block" to buy one of your
pads, and am so glad I did.
Everyone wants to see it and try it, but I'm too busy using it to let it
of my hands for too long. Keep up the good work.
