Anybody wanna help me find a purple or raspberry western saddle pad?

I'm tentatively looking for a western saddle pad because the one that is currently Lacey's is just a gray wool felt pad and that's just no good.

Her color seems to be evolving into either a true purple purple (not violet or anything like that) or a raspberry sorta pink.
For reference, this is the pink color (this is kinda dark, a lighter pink is fine, just in this same hue):

I'd prefer to spend no more than $30 on said saddle pad because I'm not sure if I'm going to continue riding western regularly or if I'm going to go back to english.

I'd prefer it to be a pad as opposed to a blanket but a blanket is fine, Lacey might actually like a blanket better.

I've already looked at smartpak, froogle and equestrian collections and they didn't have anything. Froogle showed one but it was $37, I think, and it was a more mauve-y shade of purple.

Thanks!

Have you tried ebay? They usually have just about anything you could ever want.

Froogle is supposed to include ebay in it's search, so technically yes, but I'll go check ebay in case froogle is lying to me. =)

Yeah I find sometimes with search engines that claim to search everywhere sometimes leave things out. If you can't find it on ebay I'm sure where else you could look...

This is the only ones with any shade of purple or pink I could find. It may be more than you want to spend though.

One thing you can do to change the color without getting a whole new setup is to get a show-type blanket and put it between your saddle and the pad, essentially covering the pad up.

Thanks smrobs!

It was a good thing I looked on ebay for actually because I did find two that looked like they were definitely worth the $25. One is reversible, lime green on one side and pink on the other and the other is purple. The reversible one is cheaper including shipping so I think I'm going to go with that one.

How do you clean a western saddle pad? Especially if I get the reversible one, I'm probably going to end up wanting to wash it after it gets too nasty to actually use it's reversibility. Haha Can you just throw it in the washing machine? I have a feeling they might be more delicate than that...especially since my family has a top loading washing machine. >.<
