PS In the UK, a numnah is a cloth that is cut to the shape of a saddle (usually come in GP, jumping and dressage saddle shapes - hard to find one the exact shape of a showing saddle). Anything just made in the plain old rectangular shape is still a saddlepad/cloth.

Thanks for the numnah definition :) I can see how a well fitting english saddle could be ridden without a pad since the bottom looks pretty puffy and soft.

Another thought - the reason many old english books probably showed saddles with no kind of cloth underneath is probably because that was the fashion at the time. It was fashionable to imitate what was happening in the show ring.
Now, it's fashionable to emulate what goes on in showjumping etc. Hence all the funky coloured numnahs and saddlepads you see around.

Western horses used them for Hunter under saddle calsses until about 8 years ago in the US until they started using the style of "western" english pad that is used now

u guys allways have to act like what i say is compleatly wrong and u have NEVER heard about it before.

I'm not even talking about western I'm talking about leather english saddles, I've seen it happen okay? In my oppinion I would ride with a saddle pad.

Has anyone even (recently) seen someone riding without a pad/numnah? I tried to google for a photo, but came up empty handed.

In my time with hunters, I've never seen someone ride without a pad. And cmon, the whole point of riding western is to have the cool, matching, colorful saddle blankets, right? I'm clueless on saddleseat, maybe it's a show routine in that discipline?

Someone post a photo of someone riding without a pad!!

And I Love Lane, I've never heard of those pads being called "western" english pads. I've always called them Easy View Pads or Number Pads. I don't really like them though...I'm a stickler for the classic numnah-type pad.
