What kind of saddle pad...

I just got Australian stock saddle. I rode in one a couple years ago and loved it, but I can't for the life of me remember what kind of saddle pad they used. I have a thin navajo pad, and some thicker western saddle pads. Will those work or should I invest in something better suited to the saddle's shape?

You can use any, I've seen it all, navajo pads, western type ones. I tend to use thick ones, like the Zilco "puffer pads". They are heaps soft, but still provide a fair amount of padding.

If the saddle is padded underneath, like an English saddle, then you want to use a thin blanket or saddle pad. Using a thick pad will alter the fit and may cause the saddle to roll or shift.

Here's a website that has pads specifically for Aussie saddles: Horse Saddle Pads | Australian Saddle Pads | Western Saddle Pads - Kate's Saddle Supply

Though I don't think that you have to get a special pad.

I used to use what I had for my Western saddle - take L2R's advise on the thickness, though.
