For that amount of money I would look into getting a 5 star. 100% wool, they are really shock absorbing, they are amazingly soft and don't break down or get stiff/hard feeling. They last forever (mine has been used almost everyday for over a year for roping, barrels, and long hours on the trail and it still looks and feels new). My horses love them! I have a very cinchy/sensitive gelding that would tense up every time he was saddled until I started using them. Cant say enough good things about them.

Much to our horses' dismay sometimes ;) or at least mine, during the first few mountain rides of the year!

Gritty, I have heard many good things about the 5 star. I guess I have to figure out if a saddle pad is going to help solve the less-than-perfect saddle fit or if it's time to just get another saddle. My Tucker is just gorgeous, super comfy and good quality but too big is too big :( That's why I wondered about the Cavallo. They have a built-up model for narrow withered horses. But they're over $200.00 so I don't want to add another expensive saddle pad to my collection haha.

Least you've got a good quality saddle to start with... So if you do decide to sell it probably won't be hard! Is there a saddle fitter in your area you can have out to look at the fit?

Oh, and sorry for hijacking this Cowchick!

~Started young horses in Bosca te Ador, unto the two rein the old Spanish spade, brought them along with two hands that were gentle. Some fine reining horses as ever were made~

LOL! no problem, this thread is almost a year old, I cant even remember why I started it unless I was on my bored internet shopping hoorahs.

And, no I never did buy a Cavallo pad. I always think I want a spendy pad then I chicken out and go back to the same ol' wool ones. (although I did buy a Bio-Fit for our appendix horse that has hollows behind his shoulder blades)

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

Haha! I can so relate to this!
Did you like the Bio-Fit?

Tbcrazy, a saddle fitter is probably a good idea. That would eliminate this ongoing guess work and expensive saddle pad/blanket collection that I've got going on here
