Pad for treeless saddle

Hi
I started ridiing Torsion endurance treeless saddle with a Medi-Cheval pad.
Does the combination sounds OK?
What would you think be better, the Medi-Cheval or EquiPedic?
Thanks

How are the treeless saddles to ride in?

I have heard of them but unfortunately know they are not allowed in the show ring, so I don't one but would love to get one for trail. Where did you get yours from? are there any special considerations to look at before buying one?

I appreciate your time

There is no one pad/treeless saddle combination that works best for all horses. Sometimes one pad style works best with one horse while a different pad style works with a different horse. I would try the one you have and see if it works with your horse. Watch him for sore spots and does this pad have a spinal channel?

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I found a site that said both of those pads were fine for the Torsion, guess it depends on which works best for you/horse personally. Found no reviews on Medi Cheval, several on different Equipedic pads, varied reviews. I am also curious as to where you got it and how you like it. Please keep us posted.

I have heard of people riding in both for treeless. I myself use a Skito Treeless Pad with my Bob Marshall endurance saddle. It's made things quite stable and very comfy for both the horse and I.

Between the two though, I would pick the Equipedic. They have new foam now that is firmer and more shock absorbing,

Which show ring? As far as I know here in the USA, treeless saddles are allowed in most shows, as long as they fit the other requirements. I have ridden in a treeless saddle for Dressage, a friend has for western events, and I know another girl who fox hunts in hers. There are treeless saddles to fit just about any discipline/event out there!
