Money is tight and I can't afford to spend too much at the time but I only have a crappy two ply saddle blanket and it doesn't cut it. I want to buy a thicker pad, one at least one inch thick. I found this one which is pretty nice but I want a second opinion. I don't like the pads with the grippy stuff on bottom because my horse hates them so I have to get felt, wool or fleece bottomed pads. I figured the canvas top will stick better to my saddle than some other pads with nylon tops.
I can't afford anything more than that really with shipping and all that and the pads at Tractor Supply Co and the local tack shops are either thin or $40+
A few of my questions are:
If you were in my situation would you by this pad?
Why or why not?
Is there anything particularly good?
What about anything bad?
Would this be okay for trail riding or long rides?
Does it look like the pad will slip very easily or sort of hold its own?
