    Sounds cool. I just would not put the stones by the grith strap or where the leg would be.
    I would hate to have them fall off and go on my boots and walk around with them on. With my luck someone would be like " whats on your boots?!!?"

    LOL!

    I would be interested in trying them out! The things that would be of a concern for me is the quality of the polos (fabric, stitching), if they fit my horse and the rhinestones staying on (and in their settings) in the wash.
    I have a clinic coming up (I don't know if you've heard but Robert Dover is coming to Calgary - it should be an excellent clinic! Auditor forms are on the ADA website) and I could test them for you I have contacts at a few high end tack shops in the area (Top Hat n' Tails and HorseLife) and I'm sure that if I like them they would be willing to take up the line and sell them in their stores (if you're interested). This is definitely something that the dressage crowd around here would like! Especially if they can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use!
    Anebel, I missed your post!! Thank you very much for all the advice!!
    I am going to be buying some stronger thread now that I know I am interested in continuing this venture past my initial "test polos." All velcro will be double or triple stitched, and I'm actually thinking of using embroidery thread for the rhinestones, or reinforced thread so they really stay. I've already thought out a looping stitch for them that seems to be very sturdy.
    I am very interested in approaching some tack shops in the area - that would be fantastic if you like them. I will get working on 'em and would love your opinion on them when you're in town!
    Thanks again!!

    That is extremely generous of you! I wouldn't want to impose! If you'd like, think on it, and if you would still like, please let me know and we can work something out!

    I just trace a pad shape I want onto newspaper as my patern and go from there. Fitted pads were easier for me to make. The main problem is the pad stuffing, it usually shifts around, unless you quilt it. And getting the binding on the edges just right requires alot of pinning and repinning.

    That would look cool! I think there were some pads like that but with strips? I looked but could not find them.

    Zilco makes pads like that



    But like a 2 or 3 strand would be cooler still!!!

    I would pay up to $50 Aus for a set of 4 of those polos -- I love polos but with bling- GASP
