Saddle pads

I am going to get a fitted saddle pad with a number holder. Couple questions...
1) Should I use this or a square pad for a smaller show?
2) Do you put the number on both sides?

You always put the number on the left.

Curious... Do you have pictures? I'm trying to picture a saddle with number holders and can't imagine it. Good old safety pins work for me or higher level competition putting them on breastplate exc ( smaller number that I have already to create whatever number I'm given)

It's late... I hope that makes sense

It depends what you are competing in.

In dressage, a square pad is preferable.
McKellar, some pads do have number holders attached.

In Australia, it is the Equestrian Federations rules to display numbers on both sides, either on the bridle or the pad. Check with the federation or club that you will be showing with.
