Re: [RC] and Last - Heat retention on back - need new pad/Sports saddle - Chris Paus

That's a really huge Paso Fino!

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)
