I Made An English Saddle Pad

When I was cleaning out the storage tunnels in my room, I found some Hawaiian fabric that I thought would look great as an english saddle pad. With the help of an old white sheet, some batting and a bit of casing, I now have a completed pad! I didn't add any of the loops for the girth or anything, as many people end up cutting them off anyway. I figure it wouldn't be that hard to add them on if I decide I want them in the future. I hope I did the shaping and everything right--does it look okay? I didn't have a pad to trace around, so I just took the measurements of the finished pad size and added some shaping. I hope it will work!








So I have been checking out Craigslist for a used, cheaper english saddle. I think I may have found one...hopefully I will be able to use my pad soon!

Thanks!

It is a pretty thin pad--maybe about 1/6" thick? It is more to keep a padded and shaped english pad clean than offer protection to a horse's back. I don't see why you couldn't throw it over a western pad to jazz it up a bit though!

Very cute. We ride with a pad like that and a fleece pad on top, I love to see the girls who have cute pads, makes me smile.

Yeah, that would work great. Gracie's saddle pad is, well, ugly and old to say the least :) It isn't anything fancy. Until the Horsefest this October when we get a new, pretty saddle pad, I could throw this over the old one. Thanks for the idea!!!

That is really cute : ) good job!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

I've been planning on doing something like that as well! I have my own sewing machine and I figured I could make and sell them at shows or something. Now that I see it CAN be done I think I'm going to go looking for fabrics and get started!!!
