New Horse Tack Help

I got my new mare Hunter. And with Hunter came five saddle pads, and some leg wraps but I have no clue what kind of saddle pads these are for or used for. I ride Western. So I don't know if I can use these or not. And can someone tell me which legs the leg wraps go on? Front or back? How do I put them on?

First one looks like a dressage pad. Second and fourth pads look like basic AP pads. Not sure on that one with square corners. That's odd.

Those wraps look like shipping boots, to me. Most likely for the front, as ones for the back would have more of an angle to them to compensate for the hock angle.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

Can I use the AP. Ones for my western saddle?

I wouldn't. Western saddles are made to have a thicker pad used underneath them. Unless your saddle fits absolutely 100% perfect, using a thin pad like an English pad is going to cause issues.

I wouldn't use any of those pads with a western saddle, either. Get something from your feed store so you can start riding and ask around what others use.

Yes. Those are shipping boots.

Wash them up (you can toss them in the regular washing machine and dryer) and if they're in good enough shape, sell them. You'll probably only get about $10 per pad, but it's better than nothing.
