Actually LOTS of people ride with just a thin pad. You SHOULD be able to.

My Saddle has beewn professionally fitted thank you.
And yes my Dressage saddle does need the extra padding - Been advised by a "professional"
My Mare is a bit of an odd shape.

But if you hadf the choice of a saddle sitting bare on your back, or if you had choice of a nice think sdaale pad. What would you chose. Extra padding clearly. Also to absorb any impact, on my other TB he is always ridden in a Gel pad. If not his back get tender and he will hollow it out. But the saddle is a perfect fit on him, saddle blankets arnt JUST for you reasons. Theres a billion of others.

To be honest I don't really know much people here that do. Espessialy riders riding at training + the impact caused by jumping can be reduced alot from careful padding and protection.

Don't advise someone to add more padding under their saddle, because you could be causing more issues for the horses back. That isn't your place. That is the place of their professiona saddle maker/fitter.

Well since its been fitted by a so called "professional" it makes it all better? There isnt a need 2 have 2 saddle pads I mean come on. So instead of putting 2 saddle pads on have you ever thought of putting a tad thicker of a saddle pad on? I mean really there isnt a need for 2

Theres not differnece in wearing two saddle pads, athan wearing a thick one. Wow, I guess everyone over here actually cares for there horses back. And perhaps like lessning the impact on it.

Everyone over here makes sure their saddle fits correctly as is. Gets Chiro work and massage.

Again, adding more pads to a saddle that already fits correctly, is causing more issues - aka - pinching, pressure, bridging, effecting muscle tone, heat.

I was only "advising", Not ordering her to do so.
I though EVRYONE knew that douple padding make for a more comfortable horse. Like I said my TB gets tender if he isnt ridding with a puffa pad and a gel pad. So why would I take them away and ride in a thin one? To cause him more pain?? Yeah cause that's intelligent. And yes before you get bitchy his stubben jumping saddle has been professinally fitted.
:roll:

Hmmmm.... Nope. Not mine.
I know enough to know my saddles arnt causing any pain to any of my horses. Apart from Taking away my TB's extra padding, now that would cause him unessacery pain.

Pardon me if I seem rude, but this is ridiculous. This thread was for critique of the OPs position, not everyone's personal opinion of saddle pads. If you want to debate the pros/cons of saddle pad usage, start a thread on the topic. I've been biting my tongue long enough, but this is crazy. I come on this forum to get good advice and feedback from other horse owners. Lately it seems as though every thread starts an argument that has NOTHING to do with the original post. If you are only here to start arguments, please go elsewhere. Some of us are here to learn so we can properly care for and ride our horses. THANK YOU!
