    I wish that I could return several items that have not worked out well. Thousands of dollars worth actually including one saddle that seemed to fit until the horse got wider...................
    I, personaly, have loved my HAF pad and don't think it messes with saddle fit. However, since I do not have a correctly fitting saddle in the first place and my horse came up sore at our last ride, I have no way of guaranteeing that that's not it.

    I know a lot of people use Skito pads, and I have one of those as well. I use it as my backup.

    A friend of mine lost her supracor - it was in a smooth cover - wiggled itself right out from under her saddle while she was riding in the woods - didn't notice it until several miles later and could never find it again - she looked for DAYS. That was bad luck!

    I too, have a hard time letting go of $$ for expensive pads - I want to know they will last for 10 years. But another endurance friend of mine who made it to the WEG long list last year SWEARS by hers - she says things change after the first 50 miles of a 100 - suddenly your saddle, pad, etc don't work as good as you thought and problems start to show up thru your horse's way of going. She switched to a supracor and hasn't looked back for a few years now.

    My very basic 'fall back to' pad is the woolbacks (Toklat) with the shims (or without) - can fit just about any horse or saddle (you can have them custom made for under $150). Never rode on one past a 25vr, but they work great for everyday use, last for a decade and wash up in the washer quite nicely.

    Yes Jillybean, I want a specialized saddle too! It's been something on my wishlist for a couple of years now. here is another pad I've been considering as well - anyone heard of this? It has various shims as well.
