Reinsman tacky-too contour pad?

Are they any good? Because our dollar is so good I'm considering getting one for Latte to wear under my big stock saddle. I've never bought a western pad, usually ride in square wool pads.

Any opinions greatly appreciated!

I've never used one but most of the stuff Reinsman makes is good.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I've had a Reinsman tacky-too endurance/trail shaped pad for several years. Love it, but wanted something with more padding so I bought a used Reinsman contoured microsuede square 30x30 pad with 1" orthopedic felt. I rode with it the first time yesterday on a 7-mile ACTHA ride and was pleased that the withers area stayed up off my TWH's withers really well. It seemed to work well for us but it will take a few more rides before I know for sure. I haven't had any complaints about the construction or the quality of the materials. Also, they really do seem to help keep the saddle from slipping.

There are quite a few reviews of the Reinsman Tack Too pads if you scroll down about 3/4 of the way on this page:

I have a Tacky Too pad for my mare. I was having problems with the regular pads slipping to the side or out from under the saddle from the back. It seems to work really well for her.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

LOVE them! They keep your saddle from slipping, they have good ventilation and are so easy to clean.
