Best Bareback Pad??

So I've been thinking that I want to ask for a bareback pad for Christmas. I love riding bareback, but it's so painful with my tb's bony back. So anyways I was wondering what is the best bareback pad out there. I would like to stay under $100, but could maybe go a bit higher if I pay for some of it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I got a bareback pad from GypsyTally on here and oh my. It is probably the best one I've ever ridden in, it's super comfy and cushy and it didn't break my bank account! Haha
I also got to choose all the colors and fabrics and stuff so it's totally "me".

She has a thread in equipment classifieds or somewhere like that...

Do you want kind with stirrups or not? The ones I have seen without stirrups are usually around 50-60 dollars =] I know one brand is Tacky Too, and there is another I can't remember of. But I was looking at them as well =] I will probably buy whichever one is at the local Stockmans...

Weaver makes some really nice ones. I have a Stacey Westfall pad and it is amazing, they're really pricey though.

My local tack shop has the Reinsman tacky-too bareback pads, (they sell for 96.95 CAD) they are really nice and they have a contour which is something I really wish the Westfall pad had, they also come in all sorts of colours.


P.S, Avoid stirrups at all costs they are not safe at all on bareback pads. If the pad slips (I have had that happen a few times) and you are balanced, you won't fall. If you have your weight in stirrups and the pad slips, so will you.

Thanks everyone for the responses! I might try one from GypsyTally, they sound pretty nice. Do you know what kind of girth you use with one?? Also, I'm looking for one without stirrups.

You use a western girth with GypsyTally's. She sells girths with them for $10 extra (but she only charges about $35 for the pad, I think...) which is a steal, IMO. Haha

DON'T GET ONE WITH STIRRUPS!! Very dangerous. People have been killed. There's nothing to keep them from slipping under the horse and they get stuck under the horse.

I love my bareback pad, but can't remember what brand it is. I know it's under $100 and it works on my bony TB, so it should work for you. It comes with a girth and it doesn't slip. I'll check what brand it is when I get home and repost.

Ok thanks, did you happen to purchase the girth that she sells? If you did do you think it is good quality?

Don't worry I will definitely not be getting one with stirrups. It takes away from the whole purpose, plus it is extremely dangerous.

Also, looking forward to seeing what brand your's is.

This looks like the one I have. Mine is black. I'll have to double check, but I think that's it.
