    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.
