No, the lack of a 'spine' in a pad.

I worry that with a large grippy pad that it will actually put pressure on the spine, with the panels of the saddle kind of stretching across it. I'm explaining it badly.....

You can pull a saddle pad up into the gullet at the withers, and we all do to stop the saddle pushing the pad onto them and causing pressure, well I worry that pressure will occur further back, does that make sense?

I see what you are saying, but you have that saddle channel (whatever the correct word is) going along the spine. Even when you are in saddle you still have clearance (I can see through that channel even when the rider use the pad). Seems to me you are over-concerned over nothing.

BTW, I'm not trying to talk you into contour. Was just trying to get what you mean. Also if you go with trifecta measure carefully: I tried their largest one and it was HUGE - way over the edges of my saddle (I have 18" one).

Very nice!

I have the Thinline saddle fitter pad. Black sheepskin with pockets and shims. I don't need or use the shims, I just use it as a sheepskin pad but having the shims as an option is great. I am midget sized and so nobody else's saddle fits me, being able to shim up my pads/saddle and use it on other horses is good.
