So something like this:
Contoured Felt Saddle Pad With Suede Wear Leather: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com
I like that it's contoured and a little cutback, it has wear leathers which I like, it's the thickness I need (anything thicker than 3/4in thick and I feel like I'm riding a barrel), but I'm not sure about those built up areas... They seem like they might be helpful since Lacey does have a bit of dippy back, but I'm not sure...Currently she's happy being ridden in some no name pad that I bought on ebay for 20 bucks, but she's basically the most stoic horse ever so I would really never know if she was having some pain from it...
So what do you think? Yay of "neigh"?
If not, what should I get? I drooled over 5 star pads but they are waaaay out of my price range... I think I just want a wool pad with wear leathers that is contoured for the back, but I'm not sure. Also, it's darn hard finding a 3/4 inch pad! Also, I think I like the idea of a little bit of neoprene since she is so round (and low withered) that her saddle wants to slip around all the time, so I end up compensating by over-cinching, which I hate.
I would go for a colored pad, but my saddle is veeeeery red and black, so it's a little too easy for colors to clash.
