Well that's reasonable. Might have to save some money for one

Some of the more popular Endurance pads are:
Skito
Equipedic

However, I really like the durability and performance of these pads:
Wyngz ($200-250 just hose off, quick dry, vented)
CSI ($350)

The CSI pad offers more support than just foam, gel or felt would. The Wyngz pad is super lightweight and great for warm weather riding. It doesn't sweat up and get heavy, and is really easy to keep clean. You can occasionally find either of these pads used on eBay at reasonable prices.

It's a lot like nuts and bolts - if the rider's nuts, the horse bolts! ~Nicholas Evans

I would recommend the supracor saddle pads - pricey, but they disperse heat well and can be hosed down/have water dumped under them at a ride and they distribute weight and eliminate pressure points *extremely* well.

I generally ride in either Ariat H2O terrains (the riding sneakers) or just my merrill barefoot shoes. I use the easy care cage stirrups, so that I feel comfortable riding in just about anything. One of the people I ride with does the same, but rides in Keen sandals! =)

Ok I've heard of supra core but never saw one. I'm at tsc I found ariat endurance boots. They look like a hiking boot. I tried them on they're pretty comfy. I need wider stirrups. Lol

Plain Toklat woolback pad, or some other wool fleece or wool felt pad If you need anythign else the problem is the saddle Adding a bunch of doodads to a pad is just treating symptoms of bad saddle fit.

Yes I agree with less. I just wanted more shock absorbing than an all purpose pad gives. Kind of spread the weight out for longer rides since the saddle I have is made more for show. But it's still comfy and fits him good. A lot of saddles fit too wide on him but this one is good. It sits nicely and has nice even sweat marks on him. He has no white hairs. This is the only saddle I've ridden in since June. No soreness or behavior issues besides his usual look at logs before you jump... Lol. What about sheepskin? Has anyone tried a sheepskin pad?
