Looking for a saddle pad with a pretty blanket top. Was looking at a Weaver or a Mustang. But I can’t find any pictures of what they look like on the inside. These are the ones I’ve been contemplating, but I’m super open to suggestions.

Anyone have these pads that has pictures of the inside? Or recommendations of similar looking pads?

Or would it be better to get a plain pad and throw a blanket on top?

Thanks in advance!

I am assuming by "inside" you mean the underneath side?

I have the Classic Equine and Professional's Choice versions of the pads you linked.
And they have a wool felt liner.

The Weaver pad you posted comes with Merrino Fleece underside or felt pad underside (which is what @COWCHICK77 posted a pix of). The Fleece looks like this:



Depends on what you want for the pad. I have moved away from fleece as the felt is so much easier to clean/keep clean.

I have a Mustang Pad - different from the one you posted but with the felt pad. I like it & still use it occasionally. But for the most part, for showing I use a plain felt pad which I cover with different blankets. I like that much better and I can switch at my discretion. For non-show riding, I just ride a plain felt pad ... currently it's this one:
