There are different types of English showing though.
In the hunter ring a properly fitted pad (with a half pad is fine) is appropriate.
In the jumper ring a square pad is totally acceptable. That is where the pros put their sponsors logo.
At breed show HUS classes they want you to use the larger white fleece pads with the built in number pockets (cringe).
You have to know what type of English showing you are doing to know what type of saddle pad is appropriate.
