Question Showman Felt Saddle Pad?

I just ordered the above saddle pad. I was wondering if anyone's had any experience with the Showman wool felt blend saddle pads. I wanted a wool/felt work pad, but I didn't want to pay upwards of $100 for one. The showman ones go for just $50 on chick's. I know cheaper isn't always better, but it'll be a step up from what I'm using now and hopefully will last until I can afford to invest in a 5 star pad.

Anyway feel free to share if you love 'em or hate 'em. I'll be updating with my opinion once mine gets here.

I personally haven't used this specific one, but it should function perfectly well, assuming you aren't counting on it to work miracles (which no pad should really have to do).

Most of the riders around here that use their horse for actual work (feedlots, ranches, etc) use pads very similar to that...maybe the same brand, I don't know.

One thing I would suggest though is that you buy a navajo blanket of some kind to use underneath the pad. Not only does it make cleaning much easier, but it will prevent the pad from moving down and wearing a sore on/around the withers (seen that happen a lot on pads with a cutback/cutout for the withers when used by itself).

I have one like that, not sure if the brand is the same but the shape & material & venting is identical to that. I use that under my show blanket as liner I guess. Works very well. As I recall, I paid around $50 as well but that was about 10 years ago. So I would give this pad hmmm, 4 whinnies out of 5

I have a very simular one I also bought from "Chicks".
Yes I would buy it again. Lotta bang for the buck IMHO.
