I think I like the weaver memory foam ones? Weaver Americana Felt Bottom Memory Foam Saddle Pad and Western High Density Performance Pads | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

Drummer, the ESP pads are air ride? I have to go back and look again.

Kitten, I can't decide on those Skitos. I wish I could touch and feel one.


Question:

The felt, is it comfortable? Better?

I have the neoprine one is what I have. I thought it was good but I'm hearing that it's kind of cheesy. It was only about $50 and it's probably 6 or 8 years old. How often should you replace them? (something like this)

I've never seen one "in person" or I'd share the experience.

Hmmmm.... I just googled out of curiosity... Back on Track makes Western Pads (that go under the regular one): Back on Track Therapeutic Western Saddle Pad and Western High Density Performance Pads | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM . Never tried Western, but the english one I have really works. You can also consider Thinline western (it goes on top of regular pad): works really nicely.

Frankly I'm not a fan of neoprene pads.

That is one to consider as well. I'm not liking the reviews on the air rides.

I'm more a fan of the Classic Equine ESP and not the Air Rides - the Air Rides are Professional's Choice..


I'm not a fan of neoprene either..It gets slick when your horse sweats and will start to slide around.

The Reinsman Navajo pad isn't bad but I would rather spend the money on the ESP because it's better quality and I just have found that they have worked great for all three of my horses..

I can't believe I'm nervous over a saddle pad. What has gotten into me????

Lol I get like that too over any tack..until I see, feel, and try it out I always bounce back and forth..When I bought my saddle I was having a small panic attack but when I got it and used it I LOVED it..So I completely understand being nervous about spending money on something and you haven't seen or touched it!

I used my weaver today! Riley is still the teeniest bit sore on his abscessed foot so I only walked and tiny jogs. I did trail obstacles mostly but he seemed to feel a little rounder and happier? I think?

One thing I really liked about the weaver was the tag that said MADE IN THE USA... How often do you see that anymore???

Also it says they are sending me a free stacey westfall CD.... I dunno, should be neat to watch?
