western saddle pad question

I have been riding my new QH with my English tack but I am now shopping around for some western tack for her..I will be purchasing the Dakota Trail saddle. I am using a riser pad under my English saddle so when I get a pad with the western saddle will I need anything special and/or comparable to the riser pad? Hope I am making sense

Depends on how much padding your horse needs. You could get a thick Tacky Too pad if you need more padding, I really love them. The saddle slips forward on my mare so I use that pad and build it up, and I have a horse with high whithers too that gets that to keep the saddle up.

It can depend on your price range too..any specific amount?

Riser pads are for saddles that don't fit. SO are all the different correction pads. You are buying a new saddle, get one that fits to begin with and you only need a basic pad.

I personally love Classic Equine's line of pads...I use the contour ESP pads, I have for years and love them. If you're looking for something with a little more lift and correction I would try the Classic Equine BioFit pad. I haven't used it but I've seen it and have heard great things about it.

Would you go into a shoe store, buy shoes that don't fit, then try to get special socks and inserts to get them to fit ? Probably not. Then why on earth would someone that hasnt even bought the saddle yet be looking at risers and correction pads ?

Maybe to get an idea of what's out there? Just because they posted they are looking for a correction pad doesn't mean they are just going to run out and buy it today...

Or you have a greenie (or horse with no topline) whose back is changing constantly..... can't reflock/reshape the saddle on a day to day basis now can we?

And for the record, I wear inserts with every shoe I wear (minus heels) because I have bad feet and I need some more support. Riser pads or correctional pads (with the shims) help with that too.
