    Okay, I checked out the site for the thin line - they are quite different :)

    Sorry, I also forgot to mention the supracor pads are quite expensive - but last forever and in my opinion are well worth it.

    I use a western, and the girl who leases my gelding bought a cute little english one last year. We never see uneven sweat spots or sore spots (even after 25 mile competitive trail rides) - and sweat under the saddle is actually minimal because of how it allows air to circulate.

    I actually can't believe I have not seen this pad for sale in catalogues anywhere.

    What do you mean by eneven sweat marks?

    When I take off my saddle, I notice theirs two places on either sides of his back where he does not sweat at all

    Is this a problem?

    It can mean that the saddle is too narrow and pinching in that area so much that it restricts that area and keeps it from sweating. Feel that area firmly all over after a good ride and pay attention for pinned ears, twitching, flinching, etc. These may be signs of a sore area and a badly fitting saddle. Are these areas on either shoulder?? That could mean too narrow a tree. Does he buck, pin ears, or act weird in certain riding situations, Turning, pace changes, hill climbing/descending, at a certain gate?? This could be a sign of pain that could be caused from the saddle.

    Well, he does act up after a while of riding,

    In the beginning, he'll hardly give me any trouble, and Is willing to do what I ask (most of the time) but if I walk him to give him a break from being a good pony, he'll think he's done and Wont want
    To do A THING

    I think that is just from him being six. And not wanting to go forward, because when he tries to slow down at the trot and is ignoring my leg, I smack him a little with the crop and he bucks.

    But because he is so cold backed, I wouldnt rule anything out.

    I'll try that today and see if he's sore or anyhting. Thanks for the tip though!
