I tried baby pad and wasn't very happy. It did move under. So I just put the pad right on back now, and then just do a gentle washing when I have to clean it.

That's entirely up to you! I wish I knew, I sold all my baby pads for $2.00 each. lol.

It could of been the type of pad I was using? I dunno?!?! They were the pack of 3 from Dover, green and white.

?? I know others at the barn hated them too - but we had to use them because of the BM's rules. I know everyone else got rid of theirs too - but maybe that's beacuse they were more of an inconvenience to us.

MIEventer, I heard that sometimes it's the pad, sometimes it's the horse, and sometimes it's just not gonna work. ;) Some DO have the connector strappy things to hook it to the saddle, some don't.

I'm trying the ones from Beval from the good reviews on the COTH boards. I use a thinline half pad (have to say I loooove it so far), and the manufactur states they want something between the halfpad and the horse... so baby pad!

Makes allot of sense!

I have been looking at that Thinline pad - so maybe I should invest in baby pads again.

I have a friend who uses them under a western pad and bareback pad. I tried them once and they kept shifting. I think its a individual thing. They aren't very expensive so I say give them a try. They make excellent dog/cat bed mats either way

Sometimes stores have packages of them that are really cheap. Usually three. Dover may have them.
