    Default Non Slip Pads

    With non slip pads, such as a blue jelly one i have that is very thin, do I put it under my saddle pad/ saddle? or above my saddle pad and just under my saddle? what if I'm also using a half pad? Thanks

    I put the no slip directly on the horse under my square pad then put my thin line between the saddle and pad.. I'm assuming by blue jelly one you have the gel eze no slip?

    Not to hijack bit does anyone know of a contour no slip that's thinner than the gel eze? I have 2 gel eze for wrapping, but would want something thinned for under my saddle. And I also don't like that its a square and not at all contoured to the back.

    I use two. I put one under the saddle pad (right on the horse's back) and one between the saddle pad and back pad. When I first used just one at a show (which is the only time I use non-slip pads) everything slipped back except the saddle pad.

    I use the super thin black ones that you can pick up in most tack shops. And my horse that only has a thinline pad only uses one since the thinlines are also non-slip.

    I have several of these. I use a sqaure one (under my saddle & saddle pad) for schooling then trim it down for half pads or showing. Believe you can get them through SmartPak as well.
