Well I've been thinking for quite sometime now that I would like to invest in two nice saddle pads- an english and western one.
I'm looking for a pad that is a great cushion between the saddle and the horses back. I've seen alot of western saddle pads like the air ride, gel impact, wool, etc. but, I'm not sure which ones right for me..
Same goes for english, but I don't ride english as much. I was looking at half pads but I'm not sure if that would provide any if at all extra cushion.
So when I ride english I ride with just a regular ol' square pad. I feel like my horse would like more padding underneath it all. (and I would feel alot better )
When I ride western I ride with this pad-
It was givin to me and I liked the way it sat on my horses backs better then the mustang brand barrel pad I got.
I don't do much work. I take a lesson 1x a week and am planning on getting my horse into a daily w/t/c routine to get her and myself into shape. We also do some trail riding but not everyday.
I saw the Professional Choice air ride pad and it looked like junk to me. It feels like cardboard.
I like my fleece saddle pad but another problem is that when my horse gets sweaty she REALLY sweats under te saddle pad because her back can't breath.
So, what pad do you guys recommend. I'm not looking to spend alot. Like preferably 100 and under.
