Any suggestions for a half pad that won’t alter saddle fit? I am looking for a very thin saddle pad that will still offer some nice cushion for my horse’s back. I tried the Ecogold Memory Foam Triple Protection half pad, but the thickness made my saddle too narrow through the shoulder.
Right now I’m riding my mare in a very basic thinline (https://www.farmhousetack.com/products/thinline-basic-english-untrimmed-half-pad) but ideally would like something both with a little more cushion and with a gullet (I find her current pad without a gullet end up pressing onto her withers during the ride no matter much off her withers I set it when I tack up.)
This is for a very sensitive OTTB mare who is coming off of some back soreness secondary to foot issues. She just turned 5 and is still growing and filling out - there may be another saddle in her future once she’s done, but my current saddle fits her really well. I’m not looking for saddle fit advice right now
