It depends on the horse, the saddle, etc. Does anyone have some you can try?
Under my jumping saddle, on all horses that I ride, I use an older ECP pad, I really love this one, except it never looks clean anymore, but the material has held up nicely over time. It is on the thicker side as well.
Under my dressage saddle, I got a Thinline sheepskin half pad, I bought it because it was half-price and I was going to resell it, but it fit under my dressage saddle when I bought it, so I gave it a shot, and that, along with the CAIR panels in my dressage saddle seem to make both my horses really comfortable. It do also put a shim under the front of the pad when I ride my gelding, as he is a bit downhill and it makes the seat more comfortable for me.
