I like 5-Stars and Impact Gels that have the felt top and bottom. The quality of the felt is very nice in the Impact Gels. I'm not even sure if the gel does anything, but the felt is fabulous.

I have heard great things about the ESP pad also. I have never tried one. I have also heard the same thing about the Air Ride, that is slips terribly :( The only thing that stopped me from getting the Impact gel pad was the weight of the pad...they seem to be ALOT heavier than the others? I just got my new Best Ever felt pad this week so hope to try it out this weekend....the never ending search for the perfect pad ;)

Really?! You have got to let me know how it rides and fits..I want to try one but I've always been too chicken..I've never seen one in person and I want to feel and touch whatever I want to put on my horse..I'm weird.

It may depend on what you trying to protect with your pad.

I have a horse that has a Thoroughbred bred build and is hollowed out behind his shoulder blades which causes pain because the saddle settles in the hollow and pushes on the shoulders. I have been recommended the Bio-Fit like Drum said, and I love it. You can get it in the felt bottom or fleece and different sizes and thickness. Well worth the money.

I have also the Professionals Choice version of the pad and I find it slightly awkward because of where the extra padding is placed for the shoulders. Because of the "slack" over the spine for airflow can make the pad difficult to get exactly right on both sides because of how I adjust my pad after I place my saddle on the horses back and pull the pad up off the withers so it doesn't bind up. So again I haven't found that to be a problem with the Bio-Fit.

Lol your smart! I can't tell you how many I have bought and then gotten rid of and if I had seen it in person wouldnt of bought lol This is SUPER nice as far as look and feel though, soft and not too stiff, weigth seems perfect, looks really sharp (I got red leather wears for my black and white paint ;)) ....really seems like it will be great but the test will be in a nice long 3-4 hour trail ride ;) I will let ya know this weekend for sure!

lol I definitely think we need pictures! I've had my run in with stuff I've bought and hated so now I have to be touchy feely, get other's opinions, and I would LOVE to be able to use it on my horse but sadly, that isn't always possible..So I stick to just feeling it and determining if I think it would fit my horse..Thanks for letting me know!!

You're making me want one..I keep telling myself "Amber, you do not need another pad, you do not need another pad"...It's not working..Especially since I got Lark, she's black and matches NONE of my brown and pink tack..Soo I just get to save my pennies and go shopping!

Thanks Kitten!

Cowchick - The support I'm aiming far is actually further back towards the sacrilum (is that how you spell it?) I'm not positive the saddle even covers that far back but I just thought over all I would like to help out anyway I can. We are on Adequan and do get regular Chiro visits. (he fractured his pelvis at around 6 months). So really everything I am doing is preventative.
