Why did you choose this?
Semi-New to English: Do you need another pad to sit over the top o f this half pad?
Best Answer: This is used directly under the saddle, (be careful you pick the correct size, as half pads come in different sizes to fit the different sized saddles). I recommend you use an all purpose saddle pad and then the half pad on top and then your saddle. Half pads are great because they can help fit a saddle that's possibly too wide to the horse much better so they don't get irritated. They give horse's backs more comfort and allow to fill in any areas that lay uneven on the horses back as well. I would make sure your saddle fits though and don't rely on a half pad to help fit your saddle better to your horse but half pads really can't hurt! Sorry this may be a lot more info than you wanted but I hope it helps! Goodluck.
Will this work well with a 16.5" saddle?
Best Answer: I bought one for a 17.5" saddle, and it is terrific. Seems more about the horse's withers and the way the saddle fits him than the size of the seat, but I would THINK this pad would be great for your scenario. Easy to layer with other pads, and quick macine wash & dry, so for under $20 I would say give it a try!
Would this half pad fit an 18" close contact saddle?
Best Answer: might be cutting it close, because we are using it on a 16 inch saddle, but I can tell you that is has made a huge difference in helping the saddle we do have fit appropriately to our horse.
Is this fleece on this pad as yellow as it is in the pictures?
Best Answer: Yes, it is...but nice, thick and washes well.
I like it so much, thinking about getting another for my other horse.
