sorry for the double post, but I looked at your links after and noticed it's a different pad than the bestfriends pad I have. The one I have is suede like on the entire seat area, where this one looks like it might have less grip. Also, I only spent $40....

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.

Regardless of which pad you buy, don't get one with stirrups. Stirrups provide a false sense of security. There is no tree to help lock the pad in place so a little more pressure on one stirrup could spin the pad and off you come.

Hmmmm... I wouldn't call it "stick", but it doesn't feel slippery. Knock on wood I never fell off riding in it (even though I'm not the most experienced rider).

I have a best friends "western" style pad. I love it. It sticks to my very round horse's back like glue and it has plenty of padding. I lent it to a friend who's horse is very boney and uncomfortable and she's ordering one for herself too. Our horses are very different shapes and sizes but it worked well for both of us. I highly recommend it.

here is a link to the one I use

I have the english style best friend's pad, love it! We w/t/c with it, never had a problem with it slipping and my behind is grateful for the padding. Helps keep my pants dry too in the heat. Never get one with those fakey 'stirrups'- they're more dangerous than useful IMO.

westerncowgurl, good move. Using stirrups can also make the horse sore because the webbing is only a narrow band pressing on the base of the withers. That is why a pad isn't cinched up saddle tight.

I've ridden on the second one in the OP. I've also spent considerable time on one of the Big Name NH suede pads that are so yummy. As far as comfort and security during use, very little difference between the two. As far as quality materials and longevity, there's no comparing, but that is reflected in price point. I'd get the Thinline in a heartbeat unless I had gravy money to spend on a gorgeous piece of art in my tack room. Something glorious about sitting your keister on outstanding craftsmanship...
