Alright, I've been battling this issue for years and I finally smartened up and decided to ask my fellow COTHers for some assistance.

I have a 2003 Antares, 16" medium deep seat, short flap. I have yet to be able to find a fitted show pad that well...fits! If I find something that fits the forward flap, it's too big in the seat. If I find something that fits the seat, the saddle flap swallows the rest of pad. I've resorted to using a half pad since nothing else seems to fit, but I just don't love the look.:cry: Any suggestions? Hopefully I'm not the only one with this issue.

TIA!

I had the same issue with my Antares but it has a super forward flap. I tried practically everything and nothing worked until I received the Mattes Hunter pad as a gift. It fits beautifully! I don't know how it would work for your saddle but maybe give that a try if you can afford the very steep price tag! Good luck!

I have the same saddle in a 17. Ecogold and wilkers fit mine perfectly.
