    Hey, I kinda like the looks of the Aussie Stock Saddle's "Hun" bareback pad!

    Glad to see the recommendations, since I'm mostly trailriding right now I need something with a little more "stick" then just riding bareback.

    I can't imagine paying over $100 for a bareback pad- egads!!!! The one I use is a beautiful hunter green suede (Free from Santa Claus several years ago but I know it was under $100). If I need pockets, I just put an english style pocket pad under it. I love riding bareback!

    I haven't read through all the posts, but my old Go To for bareback was my web longing surcingle. with a towel or fleece pad underneath if it was warm so I didn't have that Needs Depends look after getting off

    The surcingle had a padded leather "saddle" that worked nicely to keep me in place much like thigh blocks.

    I used it because my opinionated SOB of a TB would give me a hard time getting on if he was purely naked, but somehow having the feel of a girth would make him stand still for me to hop on.

    I swear if he was not wearing the surcingle, he'd watch from the corner of his eye and step away just as I was throwing a leg over.
    Generally dumping me on my butt 2 or 3 times before he decided the joke was not funny anymore, then he'd stand for me to get on.
    I miss the crabby, old man

    Bareback is, hands down, the warmest seat in the house in this weather!
    Like riding a radiator

    I have a Skito Bum Buddy, which I love dearly. My horse had a prominent spine, so I wanted something with some substance to it to keep my weight up off his spine. My Skito has foam panels on either side that are just enough to do the trick, while still maintaining the bareback feel. Other than regionals, I haven't put a saddle on him since August and his back is stronger than ever.
