And yet in the endurance world where people put thousands of miles on their horses, and trot for 50-100 miles at a time, I don't ever recall seeing a wool felt pad of any brand. Seems all I ever see are fleece pads.

As a barrel racer I work my horse quite hard for quite a while every day, so I like to use the best pads possible.

One of my favourites are the CSI Saddle pads. They make a great saddle pad with an inside breathable layer and a shock absorbing pad built within the top layer to distribute the weight of the saddle and rider evenly over your horses back. Their pads are awesome for any discipline. They have great reviews no matter where you go. Here is a link; CSI Saddle Pads. This will tell you everything there is to know about these amazing saddle pads!

Another favourite for me would be the Professional Choice SMx Air Ride saddle pads. Again, another great, breathable and durable saddle pad that is a little bit cheaper than the CSI Pads. Me and my horses both love everything professional choice, including medicine boots, bell boots and saddle pads. The saddle pads also provide the horse with maximum comfort, or an "Air Ride", as the name suggests. I personally like the Air Ride pads with the high wither in them as I have a large-shouldered and high-withered quarter horse who needs all the room up there that she can get. There are many different Air Ride types, as well as colours and patterns. I Just recently Purchased the SMx Air Ride OrthoSport Saddle Pad as it provides maximum comfort in the shoulders with an added pad for shock absorption and the high withers giving my horse more room to move. To get a closer look at the Professional Choice saddle pads or even any Professional Choice Products (which I personally love) you can visit the Professional Choice website! Each product has a very informative description helping you find whats suited for you and your horse.

Hope this helped! Good luck finding a good saddle pad for you and your horse :)

I have wondered about that!!!! All I have ever used is contoured wool pads mostly impact gels and now I am trying out a tod slone. I cannot bring myself to try fleece but everybody I know that does endurance will not touch a wool felt pad.

I wonder if a big part of that is just the impact protection. Yep, endurance folk may ride 50-100 miles at a time...but, as far as I know, they never have to rope and drag something that weighs as much as their horse. Cowboys do that all the time...in the middle of their own 50-100 mile trip.

I won a gift certificate from a higher end western store and I wanted a 5 star wool pad. They didn't have them, phooey, but they told me the Reinsman wool pad was the equivalent, so I bought it. Wears very nice, fits nice, just a great quality wool pad.

For trail or endurance riders, it makes sense to do what the cavalry did: Eliminate friction! This is best done by having multiple layers, not by having some thick gel or one-layered pad.
The cavalry used a folded wool blanket, which is what I use as well. This type of endurance saddle blanket is very versatile. You can refold it during the ride to always have a clean side on your horse or use it as a cool-down blanket. Really love this blanket and couldn't do without it anymore.
