    Ugh. Seems as if it would just bunch up under EVERYTHING!

    It looks almost like it's shaped for a western saddle...

    Does it any anything in a description somewhere as to why it's so... big? :confused:

    It's to prevent spur rubs on sensitive skinned horses.

    I've seen people using them, seems to work without bunching up.

    I can't remember where I found it. :-/ The description did say something about the saddle pad having "full coverage" for your saddle.

    What kind of horse is that big-barreled? Even on a draft, the saddle covers more of the barrel.... o_O Confused.

    If you need a pad to stop spur rubs, you should NOT be wearing spurs!!!

    That would also some in handy from keeping the horse's sweat from getting on your boots.
