There was a thread about this a week or two ago so I'm sorry for restarting one. Looking for advice on western saddle pads. Is there such a thing as an orthopedic one?
Really?! You have got to let me know how it rides and fits..I want to try one but I've always been too chicken..I've never seen one in person and I want to feel and touch whatever I want to put on my horse..I'm weird.I just got my new Best Ever felt pad this week so hope to try it out this weekend....the never ending search for the perfect pad
lol I definitely think we need pictures! I've had my run in with stuff I've bought and hated so now I have to be touchy feely, get other's opinions, and I would LOVE to be able to use it on my horse but sadly, that isn't always possible..So I stick to just feeling it and determining if I think it would fit my horse..Thanks for letting me know!!Lol your smart! I cant tell you how many I have bought and then gotten rid of and if I had seen it in person wouldnt of bought lol This is SUPER nice as far as look and feel though, soft and not too stiff, weigth seems perfect, looks really sharp (I got red leather wears for my black and white paint ) ....really seems like it will be great but the test will be in a nice long 3-4 hour trail ride I will let ya know this weekend for sure!
You're making me want one..I keep telling myself "Amber, you do not need another pad, you do not need another pad"...It's not working..Especially since I got Lark, she's black and matches NONE of my brown and pink tack..Soo I just get to save my pennies and go shopping!It may depend on what you trying to protect with your pad.
I have a horse that has a Thoroughbred bred build and is hollowed out behind his shoulder blades which causes pain because the saddle settles in the hollow and pushes on the shoulders. I have been recommended the Bio-Fit like Drum said, and I love it. You can get it in the felt bottom or fleece and different sizes and thickness. Well worth the money.
