    My guess about the felted wool is that it would be rather hot over time. Endurance riders want a pad that is going to help dissipate heat from the back.

    I am not sure what kind of woolback you have experienced, as the ones I have used are quite thick. We currently use toklat matrix woolback pads on both the boys with great success. We have also used skito pads and liked them.

    I personally have never looked to a pad to give "pressure relief" unless I was talking about a treeless saddle, in which case I would def use a pad with inserts (a skito, in my personal case). A treed saddle is its own pressure relief, assuming it fits properly.
