I have looked at the DM pad and am interested, but I have a question about it. My mare is very round and very mutton withered. So if I add a DM pad will that cause the saddle to rock and roll even more than it does or should it be thin enough to not make a difference. Also do they tend to slip back at all, or do they stay put pretty well.
I have been wanting to add a little more pad to my Reactor panel saddle, but still need pretty close contact to keep the saddle on top of her back instead of all the various other places it sometimes ends up.

I guarantee the Dixie Midnight pad would help your horses back!
When a saddle pad gets wet from soaking up the sweat and wicking it away my
question is "where does the sweat go?"
It goes no where. You have a saddle on top of the wet blanket. Kind of like
putting a rain coat on over wet long johns. It holds the wet and heat right
onto the horses back where you are trying to cool.
If it was truly wicking it away and evaporating then the pad would remain
I always use a Dixie when I ride and I get a nice even sweat mark, have a
dry pad (means I am not slapping a cold wet pad back onto the horses back
after it cools in the air ) .
The Dixie allows for air flow and evaporation under the saddle. It cools my
horses back as I ride.
There is no substitute for this product. It is the best.
If anyone wants more info email me private and I will forward more info
along to you.
