Re: [RC] treeless saddle and the pad to put under... need a little help - Mickie Newnam

I've ridden in a BMSS for probably close to 15 years now.  I started out with the Skito with 1" inserts, but as my gelding got older and his topline started to sag a bit the 1" made the pommel too tight, so I switched to 1/2" inserts.  Tried putting 1/2" shims under my seat since I'm quite a heavyweight but that just concentrated my wiehgt right in the center of his back (proof the saddle distributes some weight or that would not have happened) so I ditched the shims and am just riding with the 1/2" pad.  works well, and that's been about 4 years now.  I do ride with a Dixie Midnight under it, and that helps a lot with keeping him cooler -- plus I only have to wash the pad once a year or so.

Subject: [RC] treeless saddle and the pad to put under... need a little help

Ok new topic.
I have a Bob Marshall endurance saddle. I used a 1 inch ( plus 1/2 inch of extra dense foam) under my saddle
I am a heavy weight.
My question is ....when i ride in the heat and my horse gets sweatty the 1.5 inches of foam don't seem to be enought to have under me. I like something that does NOT compact down like the damp foam get in the summer.
WHO is riding a BM saddle ? Who is a heavy weight and what is under YOUR saddle ?
Is there any other pads that would be good under a BM saddle ?
any suggestions will be greatly appreciated .....thanks Diana :-)


I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed.
My God shall supply all my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus
