The words "good quality" and "inexpensive" don't necessarily go together.
Not shaped? What is your reasoning for not wanting it shaped? Is your horse's back flat as a board?
I can't read any brand name on the pad so it'd be a wild guess.
Yes, a good pad is expensive. But when you consider the fact it will last much longer than a cheaper pad, it's really not that much more expensive in the end.
I myself am a fan of 5 Star pads and Impact Gel pads. And if I remember correctly, I only paid about $150 for my 1/2" pad by 5 Star. Got it from a dealer on EBay.
Are you working with a trainer for barrels? Since you said you've never done it before.
