Stays secure, dirt brushes off easily, and the padding is just enough to protect both me and my norse. I really like the d-rings on the front. They're well sewn in, and I can thread a neck strap (lead rope) through them for a security blanket/grab strap. I've got a 15.3 TB cross, and the girth is on the 6th and 7th holes on each side out of about 10, so there's plenty of room for a larger horse, and this could be used on a pony (not small) as well. I'm doing all of my lessons this winter bareback, and this is a lifesaver!
