Question Help me pick a saddle pad color.

I am wanting to get another saddle pad for times when a bit of color is preferable, like parades, rodeos, etc. I finally found some colorful ones by the brand that I have fallen in love with but I can't decide which color I want. I am not usually indecisive like this.

Anyway, it would be used on a variety of horse colors from gray to buckskin to chestnut to bay and mostly used under this saddle. You can see the pad I am using and though I really like it and it is a good working pad, it is just kinda bland looking.


Anyway, I am torn between these 2 pads. Can somebody help me make up my mind? I would get both but I don't have a need for 2 more right now, plus, then I would have trouble deciding which one I wanted to use LOL.

Denim


or Rustic

I like the denim one. For some reason I really hate a lot of red on horses. I also like the more subtle pattern.

I too like the denim. Mostly because the rustic one limits the choice of what you can wear and match. I guess im a weirdo with that stuff!

I actually prefer the rustic, I think it would look great on your horse The brown will tie in with the saddle & the blue & red would stand out against the colour of your horse, but I do like them both.

Denim. (Is that the new Corriente?)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yep, Iride, it is. That was the first day that I had it LOL. It looks significantly more broke in now.
