    Default Quick help: Saddle pad with non slip on the underside and saddle area...??

    I found one when I was googling contoured saddle pads and I didn't record the link! errrg!

    It was a white fleece but had non slip grip built into the underside, to stay put with horse, and then on the top too, to stay put saddle.

    The non slip was kind of yellow.

    blast! smacking myself side of the head. I have searched and searched for two weeks and can't find it again.

    anyone know what I'm talking about?

    HAF pads come with non-slip on the underside. I have one and really like it, and they come in different shapes and styles. They're super-nice quality pads and really breathable as well, with an orthopedic open-cell foam insert.

    Here's a link to a variety of them: HAF Pads

    But no, it was more affordable. about 60-70 bucks if I remember correctly.

    The stabilizing material covered to top 1/2 of the pad (like a 1/2 pad look) and also covered the to 1/2 of the underside.

    VTO has their own saddle pads very similar to the Ecogold. Not usually in stock though (for all the obvious reasons).

    Wilkers makes a non-slip variety - several perhaps? - though I don't recall if any of them were fully to the top half (of the top and bottom), or if they are all just big circles here and there. I have one with a big "sticky" circle on top and bottom, and it works very, very well.

    Default yey!!

    so it was a bit more than I thought but it looks like it must do a good job staying in place.

    I found it through searching for the Ecogold on VTO. Thank you all for providing search idea--they got me to the right spot!

    There's also the Barnsby Grip Pad - it's a little more pricey than what you were looking for, but the quality is top-notch. Smartpak has the square ones, but if you want the contoured ones, there's a UK tack shop that is selling them on the US ebay site. With shipping it's about $100.

    If you are looking to save some $$, the teeming hordes of h/j people love their gel-eze blue pad. $25, tops. Works with all sorts of pads, non slip and otherwise. (not found in the saddle pad section, look in the leg wraps department)

    I have something like that (think it's this one: http://www.doversaddlery.com/wilker%...-1981/cn/4697/) and it doesn't really work... it does have the non-slip stuff underneath too but not as much as the one you posted.

    Not sure if that influences your decision or not

    I did buy one of those. It's a PITA though--having to put it on top and bottom of the pad when saddling. 70 bucks is worth it to me to just be able to throw a pad on. : )

    Those thinlines are nice....350 bucks nice.

    Do you run your girth through the girth straps? I found that if I use the gel eze, then the pad and run the forward most billet/girth buckle through the girth straps that makes it stay put. OK, that and a PC choice girth! But before I started doing that, the pad stayed put and the saddle slipped back. Back then I used to cut a nunn finer no sip pad and do that 2 pad method (with little success).

    Toklat also does a grippy lining on any of their saddle pads, from contoured fleece to square cotton and everything in between.

    Yup, we used those "back in the day" and they worked very well. Nowadays, I use one of these -- http://www.smartpakequine.com/Produc...6&cm_vc=Search
