Making a Saddle Blanket Smaller?

I bought a cute show pad that's really pretty, but it's too big/long for my 14hh POA. What are some things I can do to make it smaller? I don't really want to fold it (wouldn't it be uncomfortable for my horse?) but I will if I have to. Could I cut it up? I'm hesitant to do that because it wasn't cheap!
What would you do?

Is it a saddle pad or a saddle blanket?

A saddle pad, I can't help you.
A saddle blanket, on the other hand, is meant to be folded in half - "hamburger style", at least. If it's still to big after that, perhaps you can fold it in thirds, "envelope style"?

Any pictures? Pictures would make it easier to see if anything can be done.

Can't you just take it back and swap it for a smaller size if it hasn't already been used?

Ok I have a picture!

It's a saddle blanket, sorry! It's a Mayatex one. I bought it off eBay so I can't return it :/
Any ideas?
