Any one have any experience with a 'Natural Ride' type bareback pad/saddle?

I'm curious about this "Natural Ride" saddle. I was wondering if anyone on here has had one, or knows someone who used it?? I'm breaking my 4yo paint mare, and my current saddle doesn't fit her at all. Since she is so narrow, my saddle had been fitted for a much broader backed horse.
I was wondering if there were any issues with this product I should look into before I plan on purchasing one. Is it a good product, any kind of feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I have an older Natural Ride that I use off and on with my boy. You CAN mount from the ground with it. I am just a walk-trot kind of a rider for the most part and it works well. It is certainly easy to tack up with... which is a plus. Very light weight and really lets you feel the horse move. I am not sure I would use it for long rides ( unless you are comfortable with long rides bareback..) but for a quick evening trail ride it is great. I would never ride with a bareback pad with stirrups, but this is secure and my boy seems very comfortable in it. ( and he is hard to fit a saddle on)

Thank you! I have a rather high withered paint mare, and my current saddle doesn't fit her properly, and the odd thing is she prefers me to be on her bareback so she can feel what i'm asking of her. That's why I was so interested in the product. Your reply is great for helping me decide if I should purchase the Natural ride. Thank you so much!!
