Perhaps hoping to appeal to the president horseman to horseman, Lawrence "Doc" Mishler is riding from Montana to Crawford, Texas, on behalf of starving children and world peace. After riding 1,500 miles on 2 one inch pads, Doc switched to an EquiPedic saddle pad. Three days later, Doc called us and said, "This pad is the ultimate. For the first time in 1,500 miles my horse's back is rising up into the saddle. I'm only sorry I didn't get one for my pack horse."
