I put a normal saddle pad on Coco when I ride her, and it feels ok, but yesterday at my lesson I sadly bumped off a girl who was riding Coco (she was training for upcoming competitions) so I could have my lesson. Told my trainer I didn't mind waiting a little, but anywho, not goign to go into barn drama and details.
On Coco was a half pad (I think it was a fleece one) and a saddle pad. It was sooooo much more comfortable! At first I wasn't sure if I was riding in the same saddle, but it was indeed, the same old schooling saddle.
Because of that I am considering of buying a half pad in the future (if I have extra cash and I find one on super sale).
Thing is, there are many different kinds, and I wouldn't be sure what to look for.
So any tips?
Thank you! :)
