    Default pressure points

    Any recommendations on an inexpensive saddle pad to protect back from pressure points - just easy trail riding.

    Not inexpensive, but my Thinline contour pad has been worth every penny!

    Thinline is very good, as are the Mattes sheepskin pads. Neither are inexpensive.

    Really, the best way to prevent pressure points is to make sure your saddle is a perfect fit for your horse.
