Hi there! I'm buying my first Western saddle and need some help with the pad(s). I've been using a Big Horn Cordura that belongs to the owner of the horse I was leasing, and she has a thick felt pad I use with it. I just bought a horse, though, and all I have is English pads, so I'm wondering if I can use my pads, and if not which to get.
The pads I have are this all-purpose trail pad and this half pad.
I'm putting this on my stocky paint, and I want to make sure his back has as much protection as possible. Can I use those pads? Or should I get a felt pad or something else?
Thanks so much in advance :)
