[RC] and Last - Heat retention on back - need new pad/Sports saddle - SquareRock

Hi All

       And last - I ride a 15.3 paso fino that both gaits and trots.  He seems to be retaining a lot of heat under the sports saddle and is starting to get white hairs.  I have used a woolback pad on him, and switched to a skito pad.  Neither seem to be doing better than the other.  I think some of the heat retention is also due to the fact that I'm physically on his back longer (when he gaits).  When he trots, he doesn't have the classic upward thrust when you post, so I don't think there is much movement of air under the saddle.  He has never had a sore back.

       Has anyone used the "webbed" pad (can't think of the real name) under the saddle or saddle pad?  Have any ideas?

       Thank again (x3)
