I have had good luck with the Big Horn cordura
saddle. Endurance and western style combined really. It worked well
on Malik until he started muscling up and it started to pinch him. I
ordered a DeSoto and while I was waiting for it, had to do SOMETHING. So I
used a Skito pad with it. That did the trick! But I still love my
new DeSoto...now if I can ever find time to ride in it for more than a half
hour!! Good luck.
