RE: [RC] Pads for Treeless -

My mother has had her sports saddle for 10 years and I have had mine only a 
year but we have never had problems with our pad setup (in regard to rubs and 
such). We use a felt pad, at least 2 in. thick, cut back at the withers, just a 
simple slice with a knife; 3-4 in. and underneath that a 100% wool pad, nothing 
special, had a friend make us some and some we just cut a square off the bolt. 
We have learned that the ones that were made for us tend to slip out because 
they are made off of an aussie saddle style pattern and because it goes down 
past the girth and the movement pulls it out. It works much better if both pads 
are cut to the shape of the saddle. We can't afford expensive pads either.
