English Tush Cush
Good protection for the saddle, besides the comfort and thinness so one is not aware of it. Great for riding in the simmer heat.

Slip 'n Slide
I bought this seat saver after reading about it on other websites. I have an firm english saddle which has smooth leather. I found the Cashel seat saver did not stay in place largely because it lacks an independent elastic piece for the saddle's seat and depends entirely on attaching at the pommel area. The Cashel is trim, comfortable and not very visible, but really doesn't do the job very well. I ended up purchasing the Supracor Stimulite Seat Savor, which is far superior, but significantly more expensive.

I purchased the Tush Cush to soften the seat of my wonderful 35 year old Stubben A/P saddle. It's a good idea but the design had a major problem. The photo in the product listing shows 2 flat D-rings attaching the straps to the front of the saddle. However, when I received the product, there were large snap buckles attaching the straps. I put it on the saddle but when I got on and went into two point, the buckles dug into my thighs. Not a good design, so I returned it. If you only do flat work and slow trail riding, I guess it could be OK. But if, you do any forward seat riding, I don't think you'll like it.

My husband is "back in the saddle"!
I bought this cushion for my tall, thin, over 60ish husband, because he said that it "hurt to ride". He is now able to accompany me on trail rides. It absorbs the shock, especially at a trot. The pad is easy to attach and remove (he is using a borrowed saddle).

This made my uncomfortably hard saddle nice and soft to sit on. I am also using it to keep the seat protected from further cracks. It stays in place between rides and doesn't slip during my rides at all gates and transitions. Love it!!

Good trail cushion
It slips too much to really work in and adds too much bulk under thigh but did cushion my seatbones. I would recommend this for a hard seated saddle if all you are going to do is go out for a relaxing ride!
