    Default What type of pad do you show in? (Hunters)

    1) Do you show in a fitted pad (the kind shaped like a saddle) or a half pad?

    2) Any one show in a black pad?

    3) Anyone show in no pad at all?

    ditto - pretty cheap, doesn't slide around, and pony seems to like it.

    I will hazard a guess and answer the question "Who shows hunter in a black pad" with ~ nobody.

    Fitted pad with ogilvy hunter pad over top. The ogilvy is the exact size of my saddle and is pretty much hidden.

    Ecogold hunter pads are the absolute best! Nonslip (you can put the saddle in any position and it WILL stay so do not put it up higher than you should expecting it to slip), long lasting, perfect fit, well worth the money! We do the ecogold with a black ultra thinline for most of the horses, depending on how the saddle fit on their backs.

    I cannot even begin to explain how much I love their pads!

    iridehorses: I'm looking into the ecogold halfpad to show in. My saddle pad slips so terribly bad. I am trying to decide between the hunter shaped pad or the half pad. I prefer the look of the half pad but seems the hunter shaped pads are more common. I want a jumper pad as well just for schooling but I only have so much $. Right now I am using a cheap black no slip pad under my half pad My trainer is letting me borrow it but i hate the way it sticks out around the edges. My have to go for the succeed pad for school, much cheaper.

    Hmmm, I did some searching around.

    This looks similar to the ecogold but I have never used it and have no idea if it actually works well, though I am sure it is a good second choice. It's $100 which is still a bit costly but cheaper than the ecogold.

    This is from 2009 so I have no idea if they still do this but worth a shot to email and see!

    Hope you find something that works!

    agreed, white fitted pad. I like the Medallion high profile personally. I have not seen any riders with no pad, or a black pad, in any H/J show I've been to....

    Fitted pad. I have never seen a single person show in a black pad or no pad. I have seen a small number of just half pads. 99.1% of people show in a fitted pad, with or without a half pad.

    The Medallion high profile is what we use as well. It fits wonderfully, especially on the French saddles with a bit more forward flap and wider panels.

    Fleeceworks FWXK Tech Halfpad with Plain Edge multipurpose, style FWXK-6/B by itself, white of course. Only has the trim in the front.

    I'd use a shaped pad if I could find one to exactly match the shape of my Black Country. But on my nearly black horse, the half pad looks pretty nice too.

    I'm always behind on the times...when half pads were all the rage, I had a simple Medallion fleece pad. Now I have a nice squishy half pad for Mr. Sensitive and the fitted pads are cool again. I do like the look of them better, I'm going to see if using both looks okay. Otherwise, half pad, happy back, and out of current fashion for us.

    Toklat Medallion Super Quilt shaped pad or the same in a Half Pad. I prefer the Half Pad, being a child of the late 80s.

    It really depends on what horse/saddle I'm riding in. I can disguise a lot more with the half pad by sticking different half pad inserts in the Toklat cover.

    Thanks to your post Crazy4a, I broke down and bought a Medallion High Profile pad today. I think I can finally say I have all my show tack/clothes ready for Spring.

    Now here's hoping I have a sound horse to go with them.

    Another EcoGold user here. Really pleased with the pads, their durability, and their customer service. I think they make a great product.
