Yep, those are the Charmayne James Barrel ones which would be appropriate for you. I have the regular western style one. Then I have this one too, its my favorite.

Okay, Wow those are expensive haha. Looks like I will need to save up for awhile. So all in all if I were to get one of these pads it would allow me to keep using my saddle?

I can't promise that, but it would definitely be a good place to start. And if you take care of the pad and keep it clean it will last..well worth the money.

The chiropractor I use is awesome, he does a lot race tracks and Pro Rodeo horses. He told me that is a huge issue with Thoroughbred, Thoroughbred crosses or older horses that hollow behind the shoulders with age.

Sometimes a properly fitted saddle will still leave dry spots because the horses movement pulls air up under the saddle and dries some of the sweat. I don't know if that's happening here but not all dry spots indicate an ill-fitting saddle.

Just to let y'all know I did end up buying the Charmayne James SMx Ortho sport and have been using it for a few months now and have not had a dry spot since. My horse doesn't pin her ears back anymore either when im saddling, so im thinking the problem is solved.!

That's good the pad helped. Sometimes just changing the pad can do it.

My gelding was having issues in a Weaver pad I him in at first. Dry spots, beginning stages of grumpy saddling, and after experimenting with some different pads, (I was doing everything I could before I had to resort to buying a new saddle for him), I finally found that a Supracor pad was the fix. Now he's a full sweat patterned, happy mover.

That's good. Me to, the last thing I wanted to do was get another saddle because I had jut bought that one. I bought that pad even though there are a lot of bad reviews for it but I like it It fits nice and close and it has made a big difference in the feel of my horse. Every horse is different so I guess it just doesn't work the same for some. 😄
