We have a old 22 yr swayback, and we ride her with 2 pads and a synthetic saddle, but my daughter plans on doing some showing this next year with her and will have to use a leather saddle(western). I noticed she is getting a "worn" spot on her withers also. So I was looking on line at the tacky too/reinsman sway pads but you can't tell much from the ads, are they just built up in the middle? I don't want to spend that much money for something that doesn't help so does anyone have any experience with them that can give me a review.is there any thing else out there I can check into..... western risers....ect. What about a cashel foam swayback pad anyone ever used them I have the chance to buy one for about 50 bucks?
