I've used Pro choice and hate them. They break down too quickly for the amount of money. I've had the Classic Equine ESP pad before. I really liked it. Used it for 4 years and it still hasnt broken down. The down fall is that for a horse that's a sweater... like mine... it didnt breath very well. So for him I switched to the OrthoEquine pad. (I guess you guys may know them as the Team Steinhoff pads) They were nice enough to give one to me. I've really liked it so far. The inserts can be removed so that the saddle pad dries quickly and it still has a "memory foam" inserts inside the cloth sleeves. Breathes much better and much easier to take care of.

I've heard a lot of good from the 5 star pads and the Cutter pads. I know Cutter pads last FOREVER but I really dislike them as far as the wool pads. Mine would never dry out as both of my horses are sweaters.

^ Really? Dang it ... mom just ordered me one for Christmas. I think I'll look into getting a 5 star as my next one.

I bought my first SaddleRight pad 4 years ago and it still looks great. they are wool / felt, thinner weight so you can still feel the horse under you, very well made, and orthopedic construction. I now have one for each of my horses. As a matter of fact, I am so sold on the pads that I now sell them.

I looked at Saddlerights, 5 star and even ordered a Thinline pad that I returned. I'm currently using a Clinton Anderson PRS pad on Vida and love it. I used a Skito pad for years and still use it on Saro. Both are really great pads. I love my Skito best because I can remove the inside and wash the outside. It always comes out looking brand new. My husband liked my PRS so well he bought one of his own
