custom close contact/all purpose/dressage saddle pads!

I have to share about these saddle pads. I found this mother daughter team on etsy a few months ago and have since ordered two custom pads from them. Seriously, for the money, they are the nicest pads i've ever purchased. Being that the quality and craftsman ship is great, and the ladies are so personable and easy to work with, I had to come here and share. Should you be looking for a fun pad for your english horse - please take a look at them! Here are a few links for them:

Custom Equine Saddle Pads by PaddedPonies on Etsy

And for fun - here are a few pictures of the saddle pads they've made for me.





I cannot say enough good things about them. Check it out!

I will have to! They look great! Is it reasonable? The price?

I think they're reasonable. Most pads are $55. Custom pads are either $65 or $70. Realistically, i've paid that much for pads in stores and they are no where near the quality or craftsmanship of these. Seriously - check them out. :)

for example, anything i've bought from dover (rider's), roma pads, baker pads, something else I can't think of the name right now... poop. Anyways - i'd take one of these padded pony pads over those any day. Honestly, I have a hard time grabbing my back on track pad now that I have one of these for each of my horses. They're really that nice - perfect weight, perfect amount of cush/padding, lovely fabric (both pattern and quality) and a great fit. If you can see on my TB, he has super high withers. They custom designed a pad to fit him with extra padding in the wither area. I believe they now offer that as an option on their pads. ;) just great stuff. I can't say enough good things.
