Anybody tried theses bareback pads?

I wanted to know if anyone has tried these either of these two bareback pads. I like the look of these two, i want a NON slip pad. Any thoughts?? Or is there anything in particular i need to look for when looking at bareback pads (like materials ect) that make them non slip

Comfort Plus Bareback Pad

I have the first one, the Comfort plus. I love it. It never slips and is nice and thick to give me a bit of a buffer from my high withered TB.

the one i have is just a nice thick wool BB pad, the wool makes it impossible to fall off, for instance i was galloping my mare up the field, and my brother was laying in the grass and jumped out at her, she reared and spun around and galloped the opposite direction, if i had been regular bareback i would have fallen off but this one would my butt like velcro!

I have the 1st one for several years already. Granted I don't use it too much, but it still looks great. I used it in arena and rode my qh on trails with it. Never slipped, and keep my butt clean and comfy.

When I first got my horses (1985), I bought several. Then, I noticed how many were for sale in the used tack auctions when I sold mine. Some people love em. I could never get them tight enough to mount without slipping down, and that CAN freak out a young horse.

i have a best friends pad that I bought used off somebody on here. It works amazingly. It won't slip until I'm halfway over the side of my horse and hanging onto the strap on top, yanking myself back on. Even then, I've always made it back on without it slipping too much. It's plenty comfortable and low maintenance too. I love the fabric because it has the tacky material on the horse side to grip her, and the suede like material on top to grip to me.

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.
