Have any of you guys tried the Impact Gel Saddle Pads?
I just visited one of my local tack stores yesterday and the girl showed me these, and I don't know if I should believe how awesome she said they were or not.
Barrel Racer Tack Store: Impact Gel Saddle Pads starting at $115!
She brought it up because I was looking at the saddles, but explained how I have a 3 year old Paint who is underweight and I'm waiting for her to fill out before I fit a saddle to her, plus she will continue to fill out the next couple years, so I didn't want to buy a saddle yet. She said I could get the pad and that would help the saddle fit. I've always heard that you should never try to fit a saddle by buying a pad, so I was extremely disbelieving of her. My filly is getting pretty ready to have someone start riding her, but I don't have a saddle--what do you recommend in my situation and general thoughts of the impact gel pad?
