Update: Kerlin's Western World had an open house over this weekend with 30% off any one item that wasn't already on sale. So, even though we don't have much to splurge in way of money, we decided to go up to Warsaw and look around. I'm still concerned about saddle fit on Terra, and they had one cut-back pad with extra padding in the front of the pad. Here's what I bought:

Sierra Herculon Built up Cut-Back Economy Pad-
1" heavy felt bottom and suede wear leathers.
Size: 30" X 30"

It's smaller than my other pads and gives Terra a lot more clearance for her hips & shoulders, which I like. It also gave a gullet clearance of 4 fingers with the saddle cinched, and my hands are small. I sat on her just to test feel, and it felt so much better than any pad I've had on her. I didn't have time to ride her in it, yet, but I have a feeling she's going to feel a big difference in comfort the next time I trail ride her.

Oh, yeah! After the 30% discount, I only paid about $25. Not bad, huh?
