Half pads!

So what's everyone's favorite Hal pad?
And what's your thoughts on Roma Merino Sheepskin Half pad, I mean I know it's not going to be as nice as a Mattes or Thinline but is it even worth buying?

It looks nice, I have no experience with the brand so I'm unfortunately unable to give any output.. But you can get a Thinline for even less, not sheepskin though. https://www.horseloverz.com/product/...-half-pad.html

Speaking from experience, the Roma half pads are actually pretty nice. Just make sure you get the proper merino sheepskin one not the fake rubbish ones, because the fake ones don't last.

I don't have any experience with that halfpad, although it looks fairly nice.

I got the thinline halfpad a bit ago and I absolutely love it.

I also got the Ultra Thinline Trifecta Half Pad this week and I've already noticed a difference in my rides. It really absorbs for both the horse and rider!

Thinline is nice for shock absorption but what halfpad would you use for a horse that has lost conditoning and the saddle no longer fits?

It does wonders on the riders back and your horse's. I swear by them. And you can get custom colors.

Seconding the Thinline Sheepskin. I just had my saddle fitter out recently and thought I was going to have to have both of my saddles reflocked. The Thinline Sheepskin actually fixed both of my problems (dressage saddle was tilting forward a bit, and jumping saddle's flocking is getting a bit hard) for less than the cost of reflocking one. This pad also has places for shims for more adjustability, though I didn't need them.

I have 2 of these. Black one for dressage, white one for jumping. Love them. They have held up to lots and lots of wear. I would recommend though that if you do wash them, that you get the correct soap. (I can't remember what the bottle says, but it was a wash made specifically for wool.)
