Padding a Swayback

We have an 18 year old half Arab half Paint gelding who we've decided could be a nice English horse. He was originally trained English. His only issue is that he has a sway back. It's not bad but enough to where I don't want any issues. We normally double pad him for western but I have no idea what I can do for English. He is very allergic to wool so padding with wool is not an option. He has never had soundness issues because of his back since the time we've had him.

Any ideas would be great! (:

I've used them and they work quite well.

We have a Thoroughbred gelding at the farm with a swayed back. We use a combination of a thick wool or sheepskin half pad, similar to these:

and a lollipop pad or riser pad like these:

and it works out quite well for him. He does a lot of the bigger jumper classes and has not had a problem. I don't have a picture of just his back but you can kind of see how swayed his back is here:
