I've rides with various pads, but I'm thinking of getting a new one this year. At the moment I own;
-Professionals choice "Air ride" gel cushioned pad, fleece bottom and a woven top
-basically a wool saddle blanket stuffed with wool and synthetic cusioning. This one is fairly thick, and nice and flexible. Due to its thickness it takes a while to dry out.
-wool felt round cornered pad with a wither cut out. I bought it for a narrow, high withered thoroughbred I was doing CTR on.
-wool fabric stuffed with wool. Breathable, but thin.
I'm riding an arab mare that is short backed with round withers. Narrow built over all, but her shoulders are wekk muscled.
Saddle is a big horn endurance with a felt underside.
What pad would you recomend? What do you ride in?
