Best Ever Pads team rider Caitlyn Wood barrel racing

I love my Best Ever Pads, for one, because my horses young or old their backs are never sore, and two, I love the different designs they do!

Barrel Racer

Favorite Barrel Racing Moment

My favorite barrel racing moment would be when Caddy won the 2nd round of Run to Win finals in 2013. He had just come back from a really bad accident that probably would of killed any other horse. He had three facial fractures, 500 stitches in his chest, a flayed leg, his sinuses were ripped out, he had a clasped lung, and a spike through his brain cavity. All because he jumped off a cliff into an arena drag but I had been running him for about a month now and he was running ok but not Caddy times. So this was kind of our first run back that he actually felt like himself again and I’ll always remember that run and just how releaving it was to know I had my boy back.

Pro Tip

I would say to always have faith in yourself and never let someone else determine your outcome! Your mental game is a major key in this sport and if you just focus on your own goals and your own progress your for sure to succeed!

Why Best Ever Pads

I love my Best Ever Pads one because my horses young or old their backs are never sore and two I love the different designs they do! Each pad is unique and custom to the rider! I run Spookdeville (Caddy) and my young horses in a 1 inch Kush Wool Pad but since Caddy’s special he gets to run in the Best Ever Pads designed by Desert Rose Equine!
