Western saddle pads
 
I'm looking to get a new western saddle pad. I was wondering what everyone uses and if you like it. I have one that works ok, just seems to be a little smaller than I would like for it to be. I was wondering if anyone was using something that might be a XL that would work better for a wide backed Belgian.

I use a foam saddle pad underneath a thin saddle blanket. You can also use thick saddle blankets for winter, which I do, but with no foam underneath. Just keep in mind that the padding under a Western saddle should be about 1 inch thick.
