Best saddle pad for a western treeless?

I have a western treeless saddle and I'm having a hard time figuring out what saddle pad to use with it. The one I'm using now is fleece like and it just slips. I have to have a tacky under pad to go under it, and it's not mine. I hate borrowing from people. But for now I'm stuck with what I have.

I just want to make sure I get the right pad first time around. Any recommendations? The saddle pads I found while googling... just don't look supportive enough. Or are they?

Horse Saddle Pads - Treeless Saddle Pads - Equipedic Saddle Pads

that's what I've been looking at. Is it ideal?
Thanks guys!

You might check with the manufacturer. Sometimes they have a recommended pad or one made to go with a specific saddle.
Just a thought...

Have you checked out the Tacky 11 pads? I have one that seems fairly well padded.

Skito Brand pads are what about 65-75% of the people I know who have treeless saddles use.

Freedom, Bob Marshal and Freeform Saddle Brands all recommend Skito from what they have told me


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones
