Best Ever Pads – Made in America
By Deborah Donohue
Ask any pro rodeo cowgirl or cowboy, serious barrel racer or reined cow-horse trainer which saddle pad they recommend and you’re likely to hear the name, Best Ever!
COWGIRL Magazine has seen Best Ever Pads under the saddles some of the world’s most accomplished cowboys and cowgirls, but we wondered, in addition to the super-stylish designs, what actually makes a Best Ever Pad, well, the best ever? Meet Tammy and Ryan White, a husband and wife team with two of the most stellar resumes on the professional rodeo circuit (Ryan is a state champion team roper and six-time California Circuit finalist and Tammy is a barrel racer and the “winningest” female team roper in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association!). They dreamt of developing a unique enterprise and superior product that would celebrate the sport of rodeo and the western lifestyle they loved.
In 2002, the couple created their dream company, Best Ever Pads, “specializing in constructing custom made saddle pads for the western and rodeo industries.”
A decade later, the flourishing business is well-renowned for the quality, comfort and craftsmanship of their pads, each intelligently designed and hand-made to order by professional horsemen and horsewomen with decades of experience training and competing in the saddle. With an eye for bringing a personalized experience to rodeo competitors and organizations throughout the U.S., and backed by their irrefutable expertise, the Whites offer a selection of handsome western saddle pads with wear leathers made of top grade cowhide or leather.
