i thought this had been discussed before, but didn't find it.
the saddle is a 19" cortina ap saddle, around thirty years old.
it fits my haflinger as if it were custom made for her, but predictably has a hard, flat seat, which is not terribly comfy for me.
i want something with a lot of cush, not too bulky, and which will stay put and not be moving around under me.
being secure is really important to me, i have a sheepskin which is plenty comfortable but wiggles itself untied within the first five minutes of my ride.
that is a major pain and one i wish to avoid.
i wonder even about having my saddler attach a seat saver of some sort permantly. would that be possible?

Might be the same as the Heather Moffett one.

This one always interested me.

I use the Cashel Tush Cush, for my 30 yr old Stubben. Its ok.

I have two of the Heather Moffett seat savers, they are great! More cushy than sheepskin, and they are suede so they really help you stick in the saddle. I'm trying to figure out a way to attach the sheepskin to the seatsaver, so I can have BOTH on my trail saddle....

This is an eBay listing that ends in less than 3 hours, but I have one of these and love it:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270563741343&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.com%3A80%2F%3F_from%3DR4 0%26_trksid%3Dm570%26_nkw%3D270563741343%26_fvi%3D 1&_rdc=1

(or just put item number 270563741343 in the search box on eBay)
Although I do not see them, this design normally has a long webstrip that goes through the channel under the saddle, and fastens to a shorter piece with Velcro at the back of the pad. If lising ends before you see this, just put gel seat saver in the search area in either saddle pads, or English tack Other category. If you use the enlarge picture function and see picture two on this one, there is a really good close up of how it attaches to the saddle, put item 370243047594 in the search area on eBay.
