Saddle Pad Help!

I own a Pessoa A/O w/ the x-change system (I think that's what it is called) and am having trouble finding a fitted pad that fits my saddle. The two fitted pads I own are too narrow under the panels. So I decided to sell those and find a fitted pad that actually fits my saddle, but I need help finding one.

I've had my eye on this one for a while and it's on sale right now but still pretty pricey. I really don't want to spend that much on a pad that I'll probably only use for shows. But on the other hand I have the wither relief pad from the same company and know that it is high quality and that it'll fit my saddle.

Equine Comfort Sheepskin Pad - Dover Saddlery.

Here are some other pads I found that might work but I want your guys' opinions first.

This one is cheaper but I'm scared that I'll get it and it won't fit my saddle.

I'm not sure if these ones are made to fit a Pessoa or what? If they are then they might be exactly what I need.

SuperQuilt Pessoa CC Fleece Pad and Fleece Close Contact Pads*|*EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

This pad might also be an option.
Lettia CC Contour Wonder Pad and CC High Density Performance Saddle Pads *|*EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

This would be my dream saddle pad but that's never going to happen.

So which pad do you think I should go with?? Also, if you own a pessoa which fitted pad works for you?

Thanks a bunch!

Find out if any of the tack shops in your area are Toklat Dealers. They can take measurements of your saddle and order a Pessoa pad that will fit perfectly. If their Pessoa patterns don't match up, they can order a custom shaped pad.

If you don't want to keep guessing at what will fit, that's what I would do .

Ok, thanks! I might just have to do that. Do you think the Pessoa ones I posted would work??

They might (the usperquilt is by Toklat), but the "standard size" is usually for a 16-16.5" saddle, and they sometimes run small, so I would call to find out the exact measurements.
