Bareback Pad Comfort Plus W/Thinline?
I'm in the market for a new bareback pad for winter riding. Anybody have experience with the Comfort Plus w/thinline? Any other brands I should consider? Thanks!
I didn't even know there is one! If your budget allows - I'd go with it. I use Thinline pad in every day riding (under saddle), and wouldn't ride without one personally. I do have bareback pad, but it's on cheaper side. If I'd know about Comfort Plus years back I'd much rather get that one instead (I'm not positive it was on market then).
I've never used one either but I definitely want one of these! Thanks for posting!
Just be sure there's no hardware to bother your legs. I do hope you won't get one with stirurps or if so that you remove them as they are false securuty and the weight of your legs resting in them can make the horse sore from the pressure of the narrow webbing on his back.
I never use stirrups with a bareback pad. I think I'll try this one out and will post a review afterwards if anybody is interested. What caught my eye on this pad was the contour shape/comfort material for the horse, plus it has a grippy seat and rings so I can use a breast collar.
Yes, please share the experience. There are "bareback pad" threads all the time, I'm sure it'd be very helpful to have a feedback on this one.
I got my pad today, so here's my thoughts on it so far:
Looks well made and it's comfortable. Nice contour. I didn't notice much slipping and I had it cinched comfy for my girl. The seat is nice and grippy so I felt very secure. Not slippery like the cheap ones I've tried. At the end of my ride, the pad was a bit back from where I placed it, but not bad. I can't attest to it's durability as I just got it, but I'm optimistic.
interesting. i never knew thinline made a bareback pad... must go research. :)
OOooooh, I just looked up the thinline bareback pad. That looks nice. I'll be curious to hear reviews, particularly if it would dull the sensation of riding on a shark fin.
