“Many years ago, I had the privilege of having Dr. Michael Freeman adjust and balance my horses; based on that experience, I was happy to try a product he developed through his many years of treating performance horses.
Because my horses’ well being is my primary concern, Saddle Right Orthopedic Saddle Pads have been a key piece of my equipment almost from the company’s beginning thirty years ago. Through decades of use on the road as a professional barrel racer and roper, I can honestly say I’ve never had a concern over my saddle pad. Sore backs are non-existent in my world!
Saddle Right pads meet all my needs and wants—they protect my horse, allowing circulation and free movement in the muscle groups; they come in a variety of colors to suit my preference for something flashy and attractive; and, best of all, they are extremely durable. I’m still using pads bought decades ago because the inner material never compresses or loses shape.”

When Crickets Peppy Zan, or "Zan", came into my life in the fall of 2006 I ran barrels but not seriously. I had a dream to run barrels and win but didn't feel like I had a horse to go on. God had better plans and the rest history. I can't say that I knew what I was doing, Zan was easy to train. I have no doubts that God heard my prayers early on in my life and brought Zan into my life for a reason.
Over the next few years many of my dreams have come true, due primarily to God and His goodness and a little sorrel firecracker of a horse named Zan.
I've had several different saddles and saddle pads over the years and while I liked them I found dry spots or felt like my horse wasn't moving quite as free as need be. I've had trouble with one horse in particular being bound up in her shoulders. No matter if I changed saddles or pads I never got the result I was looking for. I saw a marked difference in her movement after using the Saddle Right saddle pads so I tried it on my other horses as well. I ride a lot of different style of horses from short, wide calf roper types to tall, leggy, thoroughbred horses. I like that this pad helps my saddle fit them all. I don't get dry spots and I feel like it allows more freedom of movement.

Cole Cameron was raised in the Southwestern United States on his family ranches, cowboying in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. As Cole grew older, he began to balance his love for sports and horsemanship. He pursued football in his teenage years and followed this dream through his college career at Texas A&M. However, he never gave up on his love for the horse.Upon finishing his college football career, Cole pursued his Masters in Agriculture Science at Texas A&M and joined the rodeo team. He competed actively in steer wrestling and team roping, and eventually went on to earn a scholarship and a spot at the College National Finals in Casper, Wyoming for two consecutive years. Cole then went on to compete in the PRCA. He gave up rodeo early to pursue horse training. Cole began working with his dad and found a strong love for horses and horse training. He spent many days on a turnback horse for his mom, and many hours watching his dad start colts. Starting in 2014 he worked with Al Dunning and Jade Keller at Almosta Ranch in Arizona, learning to train and ride cutting horses. In 2016 Cole went on to work with Mike Beers where he studied the craft of training team roping horses. Toward the end of that year, he returned home to join his dad and work under him. Cole considers himself a student of the horse. He competes regularly in team roping and cutting, and has been very successful. He travels thousands of miles every year with his dad, Craig Cameron, and regularly teaches lessons and is developing a reputation as a horseman in his own right.
