Saddle with gel pads
Is there a saddle made with gel pads? These pads would be for me, like my bicycle seat.
lol! wouldn't that be nice!! i don't think they do, but they do make seat covers that can offer some extra padding. and remember that some saddles are more comfortable then others!
English - No Idea
Western - Yes
Western Endurance - Yes
Gel Padding is available by some Manufactures
Memory Foam is available by some Manufactures
What type of Saddle are you looking for?
i have a tush cushion (thats what its called) its for my english saddle. Very comfy.
Check out "seat Savers" in any horse catalog - they are gel.
I remember a lady years ago had a gel seat dressage saddle, but I have no idea what the brand was or anything. I think most saddlers stopped making them, since people found it was cheaper to get a seat cover.
Skito makes an AWESOME seat cover. I bought one for a hard seat saddle I used to have and it worked very well! It's even pretty affordable ;-): Skito Rear Gear seat saver.
That would be cool! I can't afford a seat saver so I think I am going to try to tape my sheepskin half pad onto a western saddle.
Please don't tape anything to the leather... You can have strings put on it, long strings, so you can tie the pad to the front and rear d-rings. Or tie the front to the pommel and the rear to the rear d-rings.
Wearing padded cycling shorts under your pants works well too. You can get a pair from REI or a similar store for about $30.
