Good bareback pad?

I'm looking for a decent bareback pad but don't even know where to start. What's a decent, moderately priced bareback pad and the best place to buy it? Thanks in advance!

Look for one that uses a real girth, not just a long strap with a buckle. You'll have more adjustment that way, it will be more comfortable for your horse, and it will be more stable.

Toklat makes a great bareback pad, but they're not cheap.
Dover Saddlery | Bareback Saddle Pad .

Reinsman has a "tack too" bottom bareback pad that looks good.

Never tried it, but the Duratech one looks cool and isn't as expensive.
Dura-Tech® Bareback Pad in Trail Riding / Accessories at Schneider Saddlery

I've heard a lot of good things about the "Best Friend" bareback pad.

Ohh thank you! I appreciate you looking those up for me. I think I might get one of the Best Friend pads and try it out.

Thanks!

Naturalride saddles are great! Not really a saddle and far better than a barback pad :)

Yipes! That looks like a great piece of kit but a little out of my budget for a bareback pad (since it's not something I'm going to use daily).
