saddle pads?
Im going to be getting a new saddle, an abetta endurance, cause my aussie doesnt fit my horse. So what kind of pad should i get? I mean, what are ya'lls recomendations? What pad do you use?

Skito, Toklat, or HAF :)

Be prepared to pay a pretty penny for each of those, but it's well worth it.

toklat woolback or cool backs, usually right under $100, skittos and hafs about double that. SOme feel its worth it.

I have a HAF, but if I have to buy another one, I think I'll go with Toklat so it'll match my cinch and save my wallet. I'm still experimenting to see what I like best.

For Sultan's new saddle, we are looking at getting a pad from Back on Track, with the ceramic in it. A couple friends used them last season on multiple 100s and raved about them.

Link? I've never heard of those.

I have an Equipedic pad. I love it. My mare loves it, too.

I had never heard of them either, until these friends raved. And seeing how I think they did something like 6 100s between them last season, the pad must work!!

The theory is the ceramic in it helps to move heat around.. so it transfers it to the back when its cold and transfers it away when it gets warm.

Back on Track Saddle Pad - All Purpose Saddle Pads from SmartPak Equine

They are machine washable, but apparently cannot be put in the dryer or it fries the ceramic.

I have a toklat coolback for my aussie saddle, but the aussie doesn't fit my new mustang, so I'm looking at getting an abetta. Just wanted to see what other pads were out there
