    I have the third one and I'm quite inpressed by it I use it almost everyday and its held up quite well. My saddle was kidda tight around my horses shoulder and this made such a differnce.

    To the OP - why do you want to get a half pad?

    My half pad is made by Eous and I LOVE it. It looks a lot like the Mattes one you listed. I just washed it because I have been using it a bunch and it came out all bright white and fluffy.

    Dry spots by the withers are caused by a saddle that's too small. Adding a half pad will make the problem WORSE. I would suggest using the thinnest pad you can find and get a ThinLine Contour Pad over it. The TL pad will help ease the pressure on his withers while you save up and look for a new saddle.

    You can't fix a tight saddle with a pad, at least not long term. You just need a new saddle. Or ride him in a wider one while he loses weight and gets back in shape.

    Once you find a saddle that fits, or even is a tad wide, I like THIS ONE, or if you're on a budget, THIS ONE.

    If it's causing dry spots, then it's causing pain. YOU might not want a new saddle, but I'm sure your horse would prefer a better fitting one, even if it's just temporary while he gets back in shape.
