I am getting the Wintec Close Contact saddle (I think) and I'm looking for a saddle pad. All I see are All-Purpose Saddle Pads and I don't see any close-contact saddle pads. Can I get an all-purpose? Also, if you know of any CC pads that come in bright blue (not royal) please give me the links!
P.S. Is the Wintec CC good saddle? I don't know, I just heard it's pretty good.
You use an all purpose pad with a close contact saddle. Pads come in All Purpose or dressage (more rectangular, straighter sides).
That'll be for the quilted, square-type pads.
If you go for a contoured, saddle-shaped pad (they're usually fleece or sheepskin), they can come in Dressage, AP, or Close Contact. Often times the Close Contact will have thinner fleece along the flaps and thicker fleece where the panels of your saddle sit. Just takes a little bulk out from between your leg and your horse.
You'll be good with Close Contact or AP Pads for your Wintec.
YES!! Sorry, I just assumed you were talking about the square pads! But Equina is correct about the contour pads. The close contact fleece pads are also shaped a little different then the AP. Much better fit!
