My horse does not have back issues.
Would a thinner pad work too?
I'm wondering if something like these would work
Abetta Saddle Pad with Wear Plates - Black Show Saddle Pads Western HorseLoverZ.com
Economy Felt Western Blanket Liner 1/4 inch - Horse.com
Professionals Choice Saddle Pad Liner - Black - 30" X 30" Other Saddle Pads Western HorseLoverZ.com
Or are the thinner pads just used to keep your saddle pad clean? If these aren't what I should consider, what would you recommend? I'm not a fan of neoprene so I'd rather not use one of those.
I just trail ride for pleasure, I don't do anything competitively. TIA.
