I've seen countless people who make their own English saddle pads, so I was wondering why there aren't very many western riders who make their own pads.
I have a hideous black stained-lime green saddle pad with a slippery synthetic fleece bottom. The center, felt I think, is solid though. I have the sewing experience and a machine to re-create this pad, but I was wondering how safe it would be. I mean, my sewing machine isn't an industrial one or anything. Has anyone ever tried this?
