Would your saddle fit with both? One isa pony pad and the other isn't. Does your horse have high, average, or low withers? The second would work well for higher or prominent withers. The first would be okay on fairly flat or not prominent withers.

The blue pad has foam, very hot under a saddle which can make the skin overly sensitive or sore.

A numnah is the British word for saddle pad (usualy of the english fleece variety). So essentialy they are both numnahs.

The anatomically ones are by far a better fit (high or regular withered horses) and tend to stay put unless you have a mutton withered horse in which case it would bunch up.
