Question Which Under-Pad Would Be Better?

So I can't find a single turquoise saddle pad that I like so I just decided to go with getting a blanket.....I chose this one(the turquoise and black)...

So I need a new pad to go under because the one I have is too thin for Phantom now due to his abck and I don't want to have to double up like I did last year.

So here are the choices which do you think would be better for a 25 yr old horse with a slight swayback?

Basic Ranch Pad - Horse.com

Classic Wool Pad with Fleece Bottom - Horse.com

Ventilated Neoprene Saddle Pad - Horse.com

Neoprene Gel Othopedic Wither Pad - Horse.com

If you have any recommendations please feel free to mention them, I am open to ideas but I have to order my tack soon(all from different websites.... the fun of picking an odd color lol) in order to get it all in time for the show season.

Thanks in advance!

Contour Underpad (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Accessories - Pads)

I like the above better than any you had. I like 100% wool. Contoured is best, but wool will bend to the shape of the back.

Daimond also makes nice %100 wool liners.

I like the Contour Underpad best too, but it's very thin.

If his sway is prominent enough that you can feel a "hollow" under the saddle when you put it on without any pads, then this type of pad would work well.

Or these:
Western Bridge Therapeutic Saddle Pad TSP#3001 Cavallo Horse And Rider (Equine - Horse Tack Supplie
BioFit Correction Pad Equibrand (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Accessories - Pads)

If your saddle fits in to his sway okay, then I would go with something like one of these.
SMx Air-Ride OrthoSport Saddle Pad Professional Choice (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Acces
Western All-purpose Therapeutic Saddle Pad TSP#1001 (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Accessor
ESP: Extra Sensory Protection Pad - Felt Top Equibrand (Equine - Horse Tack Supplies - Saddle Acces
Standard Square Saddle Pad Circle Y (Equine - Saddle Pads Blankets - Pads)
