I have used an Ogilvy, Ecogold, EquineLux and SaddleRight.
Out of all of them, I liked the Saddleright the most. Lifetime warranty and they look really nice. I still felt as close to the horse as I would have without the pad, and it seems to conform to any horse you use it on (unlike something with memory foam). I don't think it would make a saddle that is too wide fit a narrow horse, though.
I would choose the EquineLux next, and that is what I'm using right now. It's nice how you can cut out the shims to fit the horse's needs, and I still feel just as close to the horse.
Third would be the Ecogold pad. I didn't use the triple protection one, but I used the 'Calmatech Jumper' pad with the halfpad-shaped insert. I felt like it raised me above the horse a little bit too much and I remember it sliding around on the horse.
Fourth is the Ogilvy. I've tried three different ones (2 real ones and 1 Shedrow fake) on three different horses, one of them a jumper and 2 hunters, and they were all horrible! It is literally like sitting in a saddle with a pillow between you and the horse. They look nice for a little while, until they're broken in - then they just look smushed and awful. The worst part is that it still feels like a huge pillow even after it's broken in.
