I have a crosby ap english saddle. It fits my arab well. Right now I use just a quilted ap pad and a cashel foam pad for extra padding. Im not racing yet. Just conditioning. I don't like using the cashel pad because it is hard to get it even under the saddle and ends up a little lopsided. I am wanting a pad with built in padding. Maybe 1/2 or more thick? What do you guys think? I like the contoured look but if that's not considered effecient then I can live without contoured lol. What are some good pads you know of that fit my criteria? Does someone have a new or lightly used pad I could possibly buy from them? I like the gel wool and memory foam pads. There is one I really like but its around $300...Or would it be a good idea to use a soreback or wool/fleece half pad on top of my ap pad instead of the cashel? I am just worried about shock absorption and comfort for my gelding.
