I agree with the English pad! If you really want the western look, you can use the thin wool blanket style instead. The English pad works better for my mare though- the pad doesn't move, and it has the fold at the shoulder which helps it to sit, I think. I have the Roma Ecole, recommended by Wallaby on this forum, I think it was.
I thought it was too cool when I finally got around to watching Man From Snowy River (everyone compares my horse to the movie)- but they just used a thin towel like blanket. Makes me wanna find a really neat patterned thin wool blanket and chop it down for multiple pads! :)
