Aussie Saddle

Does anyone use an Aussie saddle? What kind of saddle pad do you use?

I think you can buy saddle pads made specifically to fit the shape of an aussie saddle. I don't personally own one, but I've ridden in them before (so comfy!) because a friend of mine uses 'em. You should be able to go online and look for 'aussie saddle pads' and something should come up....

If you go to you might be able to find some pads. They're kinda pricey on this site though...

My aussie saddle has mega padding for the full length -- I just use a western blanket for it. None of my horses have complained about it.

Aussie saddle pads

I use a specific made wool pad that was ordered with my Aussie saddle. I didnt purchase it (I got the saddle along with the pad and all the fittings for a headstall lol) You can find them on the internet, and somec catolouges carry them too. They arent too expensive, depends on what brand you get and what cut. The ones with the saddle bags attatched are more, around fifty dollars but they are well made.

I like the ones with the built in pockets :o). I just got an aussie saddle as a gift, it has thick padding though so I figured I wouldn't need a super thick pad. I was hoping to just use my western pad. Thanks for the advice!

I used to use a pad made for my Aussie until I met a guy at an Expo in Ocala Fl. who builds Aussie saddles. (I love the way Aussie's talk), it was interesting listening to him. He said the leather flaps are designed to have contact with the horse and to use a regular barrel or western round skirt pad with one.

I was disappointed since I'd spent $60.00 on that Aussie pad and now he says it's not the right pad to use! So, I'm using a Skito pad that's made for a round skirt saddle. Still have the Aussie pad though.

This might sound like a really stupid question (seeing as I'm from Aus) but, whats an Aussie saddle? Is it just a stock saddle?
