I ride western only, so how do you guys feel about a felt saddle pad? Are they good for rainy days? People say they're stiff every now and then is that really a bad thing? And would they be ok to rodeo with like barrels and poles, without having to worry about slippage? I kind of want to get a felt pad but I don't know if it will irritate my horse or not since its so scratchy, so what do yall think?
