Saddle Pads. :)
Hey guys. :)
What kind of saddle pad(s) do you use and what kind of performance do you get out of them?
I'm looking for a really good trail riding/barrel saddle pad. I really like the idea of the Professional's Choice SMx Air Ride pads. Does anybody have one?
Thank you! :)
Saddle Pad Recommendation
I use ONLY a Rydair saddle pad. They're from Australia, but I found someone in the US who has finally brought them here. They are anti-slip, shock absorbing, breathable, hygienic, you can hose them off and they come in 21 different sizes/styles! I ordered mine from Tack Obsession Unique Gear for the Spoiled Horse Cheers!
I LOVE the impact gel pad, I believe their also used and endorsed by George straight. Their a heavier pad, but very very durable and they have less impact on your horses back
I swear by my
Pro-Craft Gravity Buster Western Saddle Pad - Horse.com
then i can have different color/patterned blankets to choose from
Thanks a ton guys!! Anybody else?
I used the pro choice like you have mentioned or the classic equine ortopedic equivilant and I've been happy with them. No obvious soreness for my horses. They're not anti-slip particularly but if you have good balance and a well fitting saddle than you shouldn't need an anti-slip pad IMO.
SMX pads are great. The cutting barn I used to go (not anymore with all this weather) uses only them. I'm thinking about getting one for trail riding, but not positive yet because they are expensive. I personally use Reinsman pad for trail riding for over year and very happy with it.
I've tried numerous pads over the years, including Professional Choice, but my all time favorite (and the only one I'll use now) is a 5 Star 7/8" all wool pad.
Okay. Thank you. :) I really like the idea of the Supracor Pads, but I don't have that much money for my Christmas allowance!! :) I think I'll call the Skito people tomorrow, but I may just stick with the SMx pad for the simplicity and cost. Still trying to decide..... Hmmmm.
