    Default Padding a treeless saddle - Equipedic Saddle Pads (Equicharge) - Anyone use them?

    I am thinking about getting one of these to use under my Torsion saddle (Treeless) anyone have any experience with these?

    I am not having much luck finding a good pad that allows spinal clearance, mainly for trail riding. I LOVE the supracor pads for daily riding but I'm looking for something more suited for longer trail rides (more support)...

    I highly recommend that you talk to Tom Clark at Skito. He went to a lot of trouble to get me the right padding for my off-brand treeless a couple of years ago. He really knows saddles and pads -- including treeless!

    Ditto contacting Tom at Skito. He is very knowledgeable and helpful.

    I have both an equipedic and a skito for my treeless saddle, I like them both. However I do not like the regular equipedic pads - I had one and there was not very much wither relief. I much prefer the ones from Action Rider Tack that have higher wither relief. To help with spine clearance I also add some 1/4" felt inserts on top of the foam inserts in the pad.

    Thank you very much. I did look at the Skito pad but wasn't sure if it would be a good match. Perhaps I should revisit. I was interested in these pad because of the theraputic benefit they seems to have that helps with musle recovery. I wanted to see if anyone hadany luck with this.

    Perhaps I will also post this in the Endurance section, thanks!

    Take a look at the Matrix saddle pad with professional inserts.
