    Default Anyone ever used one of these? Pros - cons??

    I am considering getting a Baretek Pad. My gelding recently lost a significant amount of weight, (100lbs or so) and now his saddle does not quite fit correctly. So, in the interim while he gets fit and puts some weight back on, I was wondering if this would be a good alternative.....Anyone ever use one?
    Thanks!!!

    Yes, I had one. Won't work with every horse - as they are very rigid along the front and don't seem to shape to the horse like a regular bareback pad will/does. I suppose with the right pad, you could "make" it work short term. Not sure I would want too.

    I also found that it was terribly uncomfortable for me - too wide a twist . . .

    A regular bareback pad might be your best option - or a thicker pad for your saddle.

    Thanks, I just ordered a sheepskin half pad I think I will go with a regular bareback pad in the meanwhile.
