I've been considering buying some AP pads, as I need a few more. Has anyone used the "full" sized pads with a saddle with a decent sized flap? Not all pads will fit well under mine...Devoucoux Oldara, 17.5" 3A (long and somewhat forward) flap. I often have trouble with the girth tab being under the flap of the saddle and unusable.
I have found that the smartpak all purpose pads are the only pads that are large enough to fit under my 17 inch Nona garson prestige saddle without the seam of the pad being under the cantle of the saddle causing a pressure point. There is plenty of room. I have to use girth straps (which are plenty large enough with the smartpak pads) because my pad will slip around. Love these pads. Larger than Dovers. Will be slowly replacing my other pads with these. Wish they came in more colors tho.
