I just want to throw one thing out there to think about before buying the zebra pad.. I was like you a few years ago, I wanted EVERYTHING to match and after I got everything I was like "wow, maybe a little too much matching" and then as you're doing now you'll probably end up getting tired of the zebra when something new comes out or "styles" change (as you did with the pink and green) and then you have to spend even more money. Now I go with a neutral color saddle pad (then again I only buy Classic Equine pads which are a bit pricey) but then if I want to change my "style" it's easier to do and I won't have to spend money on another saddle pad. Then there is always the fact that you can have more than one look then the zebra. Maybe you can change it up? Wear the zebra set then next show you can wear something else, just being able to change things up is fun. If I were you, I'd go with a neutral pad, black, and then you can really jazz up the zebra. Like the tack, you can get Classic Equine Legacy zebra support boots, black white and pink reins(Or some mix of those colors) reins, pink bell boots.. Then you don't have to worry about too much zebra and going over board.. When you go over board it just ends up looking tacky.

This is an awesome pad.

Classic Equine pink bell boots.. to tie in the pink on your saddle.

Your reins could look like this and bring all of the colors together.

That way, all of your colors are there, the zebra is there but not too much, you can change things up often with the black pad..

Say you wanted to change up the zebra..You could easily get a plain leather set of tack and add your own bling (That's what I do a good bit of the time), buy a pink set of support boots and there you go.. Whole different look that still matches everything and you didn't have to start from scratch all over again and buy everything..

Not a fan of those at all.. The "breathing" holes get filthy when riding and will stop up with dirt, hair, sweat and then it just holds the heat there. It's doesn't do what it says it does and there isn't all that much to it, they're very thin. I can just say over and over that you get what you pay for..Cheap or poor quality equipment will lead to problems for you and your horse.
