I would never buy a neoprene saddle pad. For the similar reason that JDI explained. I do have a pair of neoprene splint boots which I like. But, every time I get the chance, I take them off and hose them/ or just hose them while on the horse. I don't think that sand + sweat + tacky neoprene would be too fun on a horses legs for long. So I make sure to rinse often.

It's a horse-by-horse basis. Some horses have no problem, and some do. Mainly, what I've found, is that the majority have no problem, but there are a few very sensitive horses out there that are bothered. I have a tacky-too (the reinsman one? Is that the right name?) western pad that I use exclusively on my paint, and we work hard. It's never bothered him at all, and has never rubbed ANY area of hair off (and he's REAL quick to lose hair with blankets/etc.).

I have just a tacky thin pad to put under other blankets if things slip, and I use that too with no ill effects whatsoever. They're not bad, awesome to clean, and if your horse works with it, I love them. :)

I use them all the time and on many different horses with no problems. Love how easy they clean up and they look new for a long time.

Interesting thread, I just bought a tacky too pad a few weeks ago, I havent tried it just yet but others at my barn have them and love them and no one has commented anything bad about them.
I ride mostly in a closed cell foam pad by prof. Choice , I have been using that for about 1 year and love it ....so easy to hose it off and my horses seem to like it just fine too.

Oh yea, forgot to say...
A lady I sometimes work for, she just bought a bareback pad with the tacky neoprene on the bottom of it. She has all retired horses at her barn and they just do simple,short trail rides in her woods. I would purchase the bareback pad. I used it for a quick ride on one of the new boarder's horse and I liked it. It stayed put, unlike my felt bareback pad. So I will probably sell my felt one and get a neoprene. But I think they run about $75.00 US.
