Impact Gel, hands down.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

5 Stars! I have used A LOT of different pads and they are by far one of my favorites and one of the top pads out there. Won't go back to anything else! :)

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

I have both an Impact Gel and a 5 Star pad and I love them both.

I like the Impact Gel better than the 5 Star, but Impact Gel you can basically only get in one thickness. Whereas 5 Star you can get them in about any thickness you can dream of! The right thickness helps with saddle fit.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

I'm going to try one out. I have an impact gel one when I go on trail rides. To me they help out the horses back and mine too. And your horse is really flashy!

I've used the Felt Top ESP Classic Equine pad. I need a new one too, have been debating on 5 star or the ESP.
