Bareback options

I have been debating getting a bareback pad but basically know nothing about them.

I'll often ride with a thick saddle blanket and and elastic surcingle. Would the bareback pad be better?

Basically whilst I'm trying to fix my position bareback its getting hard not to bounce on my girls back.

The saddle blanket thing does seem to work and seems stable even on my bosses Shettie. Just wondering if the bareback pad would be better for my girl.

You already have a bareback pad . If what you've got is working fine, I see no reason to spend $30-$100 on something that works the same way. Shoot, mine is homemade and it works just as well (maybe better) than what is sold on a daily basis for 10 times the cost. The sole purpose of them is to provide a bit of cushion against bony backs and bony butts and to give a bit more stability on those slick haired horses.

I actually like the surcingle/saddle pad deal a whole lot more than any of my actual $100 bareback pads. All my bareback pads slip horribly and I usually end up taking them off mid-ride, while my surcingle on the other hand has a neoprene girth and has never slipped. I also find that surcingle/saddle pads fit more horses and the fact you can change colors and the thickness of the saddle pad makes it a whole lot more appealing to me.

Yes, mine is home made too! And i've tried one of those one with stirrups and I don't know why then even make them, it was a little stupid! So just go with what you've got, no need to spend the big bucks on some fancy pad that does the same as what you've got!! And as a side note I have a built in pad in my bottum which comes in handy ;) have fun though I love bareback riding!
