Where to find a good bare back pad?

For those of you that saw my post of my gelding who's back is really narrow and well... He's impossible to get a saddle to fit right now.

I'm looking for a nice comfortable bareback pad for him, hopefully good and cushioned for my butt lol.

I have one that's pretty thick but it doesn't work with him because the straps for the girth are too far forward so if I sit it on his back in the right place the girth is all up in his 'arm pit' uncomfortable for him I imagine.

So I need one with the girth stuff more far back.

My horse is shaped weird :p

Anyone know of any good ones?

He has really high withers and the one i have just puts a bunch of pressure on this withers and slide down his back*annoying

If the cinch was just a bit farther back....

Which one was it that doesn't work for him? I have the best friends english pad and love it, but my guy is a QH, so he's a pretty typical horse shape. Best Friend English Bareback Pads - English Saddle Pads for your Horse but lots of places sell it.

No idea what kind it is. I didn't buy it, it was given to me.

This is it. Notice the strap is way at the front. The strap needa to be more towards the white lines for him.
