Question My "goldfish" pad.. ?

So.. this Equiguard... I've looked all over to see what it's really for (I'm guessing an unfleecy half pad?)
It's super squishy, it kinda holds its shape.

Does anyone know how much these cost? I'm taking it to a tack swap so..

Or anyone want to give it a price?

It's a half-pad for an English saddle designed to absorb shock and provide pressure-relief. You can read about similar designs at these two links:

Equigel® Cushion Gel Pad | Dover Saddlery
Ovation™ Comfort Gel Pad - Standard and Half Pads | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

Yours is probably worth less, not only because it's used, but it looks like your isn't gel, but probably a type of memory foam. Look for some of these used on eBay to get an idea of what they go for used. I've seen the Ovation gel on eBay for about $35 on the low end, and the Equigel for as low as about $30 used (very used). It looks like it's in nice shape. I would maybe try to get $30 for it?

Definitely memory foam would be a way to describe it! Haha
