The Ogilvy half pad is alright. Takes some getting used to. They don't take up as much room as it initially looks like they do. Once you get up in the saddle and get your weight on it , they compact a lot. You will need to be really good at doing up your girth from the saddle , or you will experience loose girth saddle slippage big time from the compacting. Some horses go really well in them. Others prefer the sheepskin. They feel lovely under an exercise saddle ! The Ogilvy profile/baby pads are AWESOME!!! Awesome cut and fit, awesome anti slip, awesome quick drying. They rock.
