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. Can't 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?

LOL! No problem, this thread is almost a year old, I can't 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)

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
