    Those who ride western what is you favorite saddle pad. I am asking because my pad has about had it and I need a new pad. I have not had to buy one for about 10 years. The one I use now has a cheap felt top and neoprene bottom. I would buy the same one but can no longer find it.

    I have always liked a wool pad with wear leathers. They wear like iron if you take care of them and the horse's back seems to have few problems. I don't like putting man-made fibers on a horse's back, especially not neoprene, polyurethane, or the like.

    We use a contoured thick wool pad with wear leathers over a good navajo. The blanket can be tossed in the wash keeping the wool pad cleaner. I like a pad that will stay up in the gullet and keep pressure off of their withers.

    Quote:The neoprene on mine is starting to split along the middle of the pad. I wish I did not have to replace mine but it is necessary.
