I started out with just a simple quilted shaped pad on top of a square pad but that wasn't quite working for Brickens because their was too much padding.
Then I switched to just a wither relief pad which worked wonderful for Brickens because of his shark fin withers but I wanted to find something thin to put under it too keep it clean so it would last a long time.
So I tried a thinner square pad underneath but it was still too thick and made my saddle pinch.
I finally found the perfect solution which is my wither relief half pad with a thin baby pad underneath. So I know Brickens is comfy but also that my half pad won't get worn out quite so fast.
So I found my perfect saddle pad combo that works great for both me and my horse. I also got a thinline half pad for Christmas which I think will help both of us too, but I don't have any pics of it yet.
