What Kind of Saddle Pad?

I ride western, mostly trails, some shows and some gymkanhas. Right now I have a SMX Air Ride Saddle Pad. I Need another pad for when 2 people ride. I am happy with my smx other then it is a little noisy. Pro's and cons of other pads? I will not go with gel, because the gel moves away from the pressure points. But what about wool? Or any other kinds? If I was rich I would buy a csi saddle pad...

I just get the cheapy type saddle pads and have yet to have a problem from any of them even riding horses hard every day, I never notice any of them with a sore back. Not to mention they are easy to clean and cheap to replace.

This is the brand that I have been using for a while and am pretty darn happy with.

Only bad thing I have to say about them is that I wish they were 32x32 instead of 30x32

ETA: I just found these that are bigger but still nearly identical (not nearly so colorful though).

I have an SMX air ride pad as well, of all of my saddle pads it is the one that I ride the least. I prefer wool over fleece, my favorite being the Diamond Wool rancher pads.
