    Ah, brilliant! So I can buy a functional albeit "boring" western pad for my horse's back and dress it up with the GORGEOUS Mayatex Chaparral blanket in blue that I've been eyeing :) Twist my arm, ladies...

    Alright, so I may be able to stretch my budget a little.. I really like the looks and reviews of this pad. Anyone here use it?

    I may have missed how how hard you plan to ride somewhere in the thread but I am a big believer in wool or fleece pads rather than the "plastic" pads against the skin. I think they trap heat and are bad for 'burning' a horses backs. If you can find a 100% wool pad you will be doing great. I have used the Diamond will ranch pads for years ( on long hard days... 10 + hrs) with success and well worth money.

    Another Diamond Wool pad owner here. Just got mine a few weeks ago. LOVE it. Got mine at this link and shipping was included. It's 1inch thick but it conforms beautifully to the horse's back and the saddle.

    Hey smrobs, you have given me excellent advice on bits, pads etc. I just bought a Diamond wool contoured ranch pad. I think my horse and I are going to love it, but one question. There are a lot of little sticky things in the pad that I think will rub my horse. I hand pulled each one off the pad front and back which took me nearly an hour. I'm wondering if you have found an easier and quicker method for keeping the pad free of debris?

    Thanks again for all your great advice!
    Mike
