Hi everyone. I was thinking about purchasing a saddle pad online. Any good, reputable brand recommendations? It would be for a western, acrylic, lightweight western saddle. It's actually mostly nylon. (Whole set - saddle, breast collar, girth strap, nylon reins and bridle, bit - came with the horse). A pretty cheaply-made saddle, but perfect for me right now as I haven't ridden in years, so it's just a starter. It has "star" in the brand name, but I absolutely can't remember the name right now. If I could, I could get a pic from online to show you. LoL, it's definitely NOT a 5 Star, I know that much.
Anyways, the sellers were nice enough to bring up a saddle blanket with it, but it's just the woven blanket style, not to mention purple. Since the set has lots of purple in it, I would
like to tone it down a bit with a black pad (pure vanity, I know
). But I would like it to be a good quality pad, that's the main thing. I was wondering if the well-padded saddle pads are more comfortable for the horse...or is this just a misconception? Thanks!
