And the there is the rest of us who wouldn't touch a sewing machine with a ten foot pole! I think there are a lot of people who like the stuff, but just don't know how to make it, and/or don't want to go through the effort of trying. So you'd still have a market.

Haha ya. I sometimes think the whole world is like me: The kind of person who does their Halloween costumes from scratch (no pattern), makes handmade gifts, sews...
Anyhow, when I start sewing and selling things, I'll let you know. ;)

What a lot of people do that get personalized pads is get them thinner and then buy a more supportive pad to go under it. That's what I did whenever I bought one for one of my horses. I just wanted it for looks, so I bought a more durable pad to go under it.

Ahh I see. Hmm, that's a good idea. Do nice personalized saddle pads that just have a bit of padding (will simplify my life by x1000), that go over good saddle pads for decoration.

Thanks Tennessee... :))) I will try that.

I would buy one that is cheap in a heart beat. The problem is most are like $40, so I'd rather just buy a plain one for $15. Maybe if you could find a cheaper (but still quality pad) you could sell them cheaper but still make a profit.

I wonder if you buy, say 50 pads you could get a discount, like buying in bulk? May be something to look into.

A neat idea is that you could sell packages of say a saddle pad, half pad, and polos that are all color coordinated and personalized ;)

Let me know what you end up making, I am interested in a pad or 1/2 pad :)
