You don't need an extended head barcoo, a normal one is fine. Personally I think extended head barcoos are ugly as sin lol!

Depends on the size. Differnt sizes and brands are different. But basically No, they are too short. You need a pad about 28 inches long along the spine and about 18 inches of drop.

I had a leather Down Under Wizard Poley and a Kimberly Stock synthetic for my horse Red. Kept it after I got another horse. It didn't fit him well when he put on weight (underweight when I got him) and I sold it to my eternal sorrow when I ordered another saddle. When I put him in FIT condition, I know that would have fit him. I ordered another Kimberly saddle - I LOVE Aussie saddles - they are very comfortable and secure feeling. I have had both the horn and hornless. I am in the Wizard Poley in the avatar picture. They are very nice people to deal with at Down Under

Navajo blankets and most English pads are fine for most pleasure riding. If you plan on endurance racing, you would probably need more complete coverage, but you can certainly get away with using them to save money as you figure out what you need or don't need. I bought an 'Australian' pad from DownUnder years ago, but gave up using it within a few weeks. It now sees service as a pad for the saddle when my saddle in on its rack in the bedroom...

I agree! I love my Aussie saddle. Now if I can just figure out how to teleport myself and my horse to Portugal and we can ride together :)
