I have a Navajo rug I think. It's just a relatively thin woollen thing that's designed to be used folded in half under something more substantial right??

blue eyed pony, yeah, that's pretty much what Navajo rugs are. Although, I have seen people using *just* a Navajo rug and no other saddle blanket/pad (again, small ranching community that's been stuck in the same rut for quite a while).

kitten_Val, I think it may be a regional thing because they don't have Navajo rugs listed on their website. I was looking to try to get an idea on price. If they're around $15, I think I'm just going to order an English pad off eBay instead.

Okay, so my question slightly changes...

Has anyone ever made their own saddle pad before? I am pretty handy with a sewing machine (made a dress last year that every asks me where I bought it). I found this on eBay and am intrigued by it. English Clothing Pattern ~ Saddle Pad & Quarter Sheet | eBay

You know, I accidentally bought an all purpose pad a few weeks ago instead of a dressage pad so its too short. I would be willing to ship it to you if you'd like it. Its just an inexpensive bright yellow one. But I'd be happy to send it to a fellow rider!

If it'd fit a 17" AP saddle, that'd be great! PM me with details of shipping costs and all that.

To be honest, I think even just a towel would be sufficient. When I first got bubbles, she needed to build up back muscle in order for her saddle to fit properly, so I literally just folded up a towel to raise the saddle until I had a proper rising pad.

But having a towel underneath the fleece should be fine I think, unless it is found to slip around(I haven't had that problem yet).
