What Brand of Bareback Pad Do You Prefer?

I was just wondering if anyone has any reccomendations on what brand of bareback pad to buy? I'm looking for an english style pad that's got enough cushion to be comfy without being so thick as to cut off the 'feel' between horse and rider. Additionally, it needs to not slip around all over the place. I had one of those simple fleece ones (like this: CoolBack Pony Pad), but found it to be too thick, too warm, and impossible to keep in place.

Parelli bareback pad. It's spendy but worth it. I found mine used. Http://shop.parellinaturalhorsetraining.com/product.jsf?catId=23&productId=122

I have the BestFriend bareback pad. It's pretty middle of the road on price and has what I would call a "tacky" bottom. I'd recommend it.

I want a tacky too! Its by reinsman, comes in a bajillion colors and has a suede seat and a grippy bottom. Reinsman TackyToo Microsuede Bareback Pad - Horse.com If that's out of your price range they have ones without grippy bottoms for about 1/2 the cost. Mustang Microsuede Bareback Pad - Horse.com Otherwise a woman at my barn just puts an english pad on her horse with a surcingle and just rides like that.

We do a lot of bareback riding at the barn I ride at. We have a a bunch of the Parelli bareback pads and everyone really likes them. They are pricey, but I think the cost is worth it. They are built to last, very comfy, and don't slip. I love them.

I got a bareback pad some time ago, one of real wool. The quality is great, the only problem is the thing is straight and it doesn't give, so whatever way I secure it to my horse's back, it will slip back. It's a Dutch brand, so unlikely any of you will ever see it (Emiel Voest freestyle), but before you buy, check whether the pad is actually shaped for a horse's back so you won't have this problem.

Personally I use a saddle pad and a " breast collar" ie a lead rope modified to hook to the billet straps. My bum stays clean which suits my inner neat freak, and I always have these items on hand.

I fixed mine so I can use a breast collar. My guy has really high withers and it slides back too far if I don't.
