Well. I have a bunch of random saddle pads; mostly old, tired, western pads of various descriptions. A very few I actually purchased from our local consignment tack store, but most of 'em simply accreted. And most of them still get used; they pad various saddle stands, the saddle carriers in my trailer, and the larger ones serve on the other side of the saddle as covers to keep the dust off.
I have three pads that get used regularly between an Equine and his saddle; George has a Supracor for his Endurance/Trail saddle; we've used it for years. Oily also has a Supracor under his Endurance saddle; we've had it for almost as long. I have more recently secured a Supracor pad to use with his Dressage saddle; it is replacing the Parelli Theraflex pad that we were using. The Theraflex pad is a good'un, but it is finicky about set-up, and doesn't ventilate well. It has been Supraceeded :-)
I guess you can see where this is leading . . . There is The Best; and then there are The Rest. 'Nuff said 'bout saddle pads.
