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!
