Saddle Pads - Whats your opinion?

What is the best saddle pad to get for a horse in training that will be trail riding eventully as well as a bit of obstacles or just pleasure riding...?

I would like to know which pad everyone has had the best experience with. :)
(sorry if there was once a thread on this, I searched and didnt find any..)

Western or English and does your horse have any special needs??? I use a biofit on my horse because he needs the build up for his high withers.

Silly me, when I typed this, I meant to put western but I guess since I said it in my head it must've counted lol!

Western please

MK, I started my horses in Western saddle and did lots of trail riding for while. I really liked Reinsman pad I got from my local TSC. It stayed in great shape with all the use and washing I did (I eventually sold it when I switched to English). Of course you can look into more expensive ones (like SMX pads), but those $60+ I paid for my Reinsman definitely was not waste of money and still on reasonable side. :)

I like the reinsman tacky too pads. SMX Air Ride pads are worthless IMHO. I have never had a more ill-fitting pad, and it slipped all over the place....:/

I've been using this one with our gelding for about 6 months, and am quite happy with it:

Thanks guys!
Out of curiousity, do either pads help keep the horses back somewhat cool? Or relieve pressure?

Really?? I'm quite surprised to hear that. Granted I never bought one for myself (as I never had a need, and they are quite pricey), but people working with cutting horses around here definitely prefer them over everything else.
