    Default Success Equestrian Pads?

    Has anyone tried these pads? Likes/dislikes? They look similar to the EcoGold but are much cheaper. I am looking for a pad that will keep my saddle from slipping and also to provide a little cush. Mattes even without the shims are too bulky. Also looking at the T Form half pad, but again, pricey. Opinions/ testimonies please.

    Have you had your saddle adjusted?

    I use non-slip pads; ordered one of these and did not like it. It was very thin, and did not seem to work all that well. I'm a barnsby fan, and order them thru SmartPak as that is by far the cheapest of the few places who well the dressage version. (though still $119...) Sadly, they only carry it in white; would love a different color for schooling...Heavier than the Success pad, not as bulky as a Mattes.
    We don't get less brave; we get a bigger sense of self-preservation........

    Saddle just refitted a month ago. Horse has very broad back, little withers and large shoulders. Still growing. Plan to buy a saddle when she is "grown up". I think a pad of this sort will work just fine. Just want feedback from those who have one or who have tried one. Thanks
