I use a gel seat saver with a sheepskin over it with pretty good results. I have had problems with both my butt and my knees hurting on trail rides, which for me are usually 3-5 hrs long. I recently changed horses, and am putting alot of time on a MFT & noticed my pain issues are ALOT less with this horse, leading me to believe that it was less a condition/saddle issue and more a horse issue. Unfortunate, because the horse I have more pain on is my heart horse (and she is gaited, so not a gaited vs non-gaited issue). I do have a memory foam seat saver as well, but prefer the gel.
