Saddle Seat Cushions

The saddle I currently ride in was made by my boyfriend's grandma who was not worried about comfort! Just wondering if anyone uses a saddle seat cushion? If so what brand is it? Thanks!

I use a shear comfort sheepskin saddle saver, which I love. I ride in an orthoflex cross country saddle that fits my horse perfectly, but it is hard as a rock - the sheepskin makes it a bit squishier and also makes the seat more secure. I have also heard good things about the cashel tush cushion too, but I have never tried one.

I have the Cashel Tush Cushion but don't use it anymore as I have a different saddle. I used it for a few months and it works nicely. Now it is just sitting in the tack closet!

I ride in a sheepskin full saddle cover and love it!

I like the Impact Gel sheepskin cushions.

I LOVE the impact gel sheepskin cushions, and would swear by it. So comfy!

Your boyfriends grandpa made the saddle? Does he do that for a living? That is really cool. I suspect it takes a great deal of effort to make a saddle. Does it fit the horse well?

I also agree that the gel seats are really comfy and cool.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Inga, his grandma made it. She used to have her own leather shop but no longer does since she's older. I imagine it took her a good amount of time to make this particular one... It has her name on it and a bunch of different animals on it and yes it fits my hose well :)

I would love to see pictures of the saddle. Nothing like an old custom made saddle.

Here are some pictures of the saddle. My favorite part is the little acorn :o)
