Half Pad?

I'm looking for a nice half pad for Amber. Right now I'm just using a shaped pad on top of a square one and I would like to find something a bit more comfortable for her. She has a really funny shaped back that's nearly impossible to fit a saddle to. (Please note that my saddle does fit, it just needs to be raised a bit off the withers with a half pad.)
So I found this one at horse.com but I'm not sure about it. It has only one review of just 2 stars, but there is no comment as to why the person didn't like it. Does anyone else have it? Exselle Rolled Edge Half Saddle Pad - Horse.com
This pad looks nice too, but costs a bit more than I want to spend. If this one seems to be a lot better I will pay for it though: Roma Sheepskn Half Pad W/Full Rolled Edges - Horse.com
Thanks in advance for your help!

I have the second one you posted for my pony. I like it..but it's very thin and makes the saddle slide a bit. But OK for the money.

I just bought this one (Wither Back Half Pad | Dover Saddlery) and I really like it. Nice support without interfering.

Mudpie has a Mattes half pad (which is expensive, but worth it) and he really likes it(:

Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

<3 Mattes.

They are wonderful and the only half pads I will ever buy. They are about $250 but last forever if you take care of them!

i have that exact one

yes i have tht one. it's faux sheep skin which i don't really mind. It didn't seem to fit any of my saddles including the 17.5" Jefferies huntsman.

It's a decently made pad and good for the money I think it just didn't seem to fit the saddle i have. if i has a smaller saddle this pad would have been a better fit i think.

Id suggest that if you but it keep the tags on and keep all the packaging so if if does not fit the saddle you can take it back.
