I got this pad from Jeffers Equine. Wool & Felt - Jeffers
It is the New Zealand Wool Pad in black. I was not sure what to expect as it is not cheap, but certainly not high end either, but I am really pleased with it. It seems to be well made.
I have never heard of anybody breaking in a saddle pad other then riding in it either. It just hate the break in period and was hoping to speed up the process.
I hope you can find a pad to go with your new headstall. I love getting new tack. For some reason my guys never quit appreciate the bling as much as I do.
