Best Ever Pad/Pozzi Racer

Has anyone had experience with either? I am think about getting a best ever pad for both of my barrel racers. Should I get felt or wool? Also does anyone have any experience with the Pizzi barrel saddles? I live the style if them but want to make sure the quality is good! They are made by Double J.

Oh dear I borrowed a pozzi racer for awhile. It was FABULOUS! It looked so great and felt wonderful to ride in. I wish I could have kept it!

As for the best ever pad, I see people using them all the time, but I've never actually had my hands on one, so I'm interested too.

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

I have a friend who uses BE Pads (really all she uses besides the occasional CE Pad). She prefers the wool over the felt as it holds up longer and is more shock absorbing.

I am more of a 5 star and ESP fan personally...

I have owned a Pozzi and LOVED it and still can't figure out WHY I got rid of it! But my loss and it was a big one! They are FANTASTIC saddles and I wish I had the money to buy another because it was a comfortable saddle and put me where I needed to be.

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 never had the pleasure of trying a Best Ever Pad. Currently, I have an Impact Gel pad (which I love) and plan to get a 5 Star next year as a spare.

I have not had a Pozzi Racer myself nor a saddle by Double J, but I can't say I've ever heard anything negative about it ..... besides the price. But they are gorgeous saddles!

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