Okay so here is the choice. ThinLine Trifecta half pad or ThinLine Sheepskin Comfort half pad. Both are shimable, both have the ThinLine. Only difference is one has the sheepskin underside and the other just has cotton. I have gotten my hands on both of them and both are equal in quality (excellent) and are both great pads.
My saddle is adjustable so the question is, which pad to I fit it to? (Obviously I fit to the horse, but if I go with the sheepskin I would leave a little extra room.
The price difference is about $80, but I can stretch if I think the sheepskin is worth the extra comfort. Both are expensive pads, but I want them to last and am ready to make the plunge. My horse has a very sensitive back (which is why I'm doing the ThinLine), but I'm not sure if the sheepskin is worth the bulk between him and I.
So...what do you think? Is the shock absorbency and comfort worth the extra bulk and expense?
