Shellybean, can I just say you two are really cute together! :)
I knew someone who got that bareback pad with stirrups thing and after a few rides the horses shoulders were sore. I'm pretty slender so I always worried about giving my horse a sore back from my seat bones, but I check all the time and no issues.
Personally when I'm out on the trail I like to have something I can hang a bag from that has my emergency stuff because I hear just too many bad stories these days about trail accidents.
