Need a favor!

I am currently mostly bed ridden recovering from my knee surgery, and my grandma wants to order me the custom pad I have been yearning for. However, I want to make sure that the one I have picked it is going to be long enough to fit under my saddle! SO, could somebody pretty please measure the length of their dressage pad or dressage saddle flap for me?

Weird question I know, but I can't currently get to my saddle or pad, and since custom items are not returnable, I want to make super sure I get the right length!

here is the pad I want to get in case anybody has experience how they fit: Dover Saddlery | Dover's Custom Competition Saddle Pad .

edit: I know its not going to be exactly the same as my saddle, but it should be pretty close.

I'm just curious here... What is so "custom" in those pads? Color? Extra strap?

I checked out the sizes of other dressage pads at Dover, and it looks like the custom pad measures a bit smaller than the other dressage pads they sell. 24"x45" seemed to be around the average size, while the custom one measures 23"x39." Maybe it is meant for a general purpose saddle, not dressage?

Yeah, I was trying to compare them to the other dressage pads they have, and do appear to be shorter, I was just really hoping it would fit. I know that the Dover brand AP pads tend to run a bit smaller (at least it didn't fit well under my collegiate senior event).

And yes, its the colors that make them custom. I really want a black pad with red piping for showing as black and white are pretty much the only acceptable colors, and I love red.

I see. I have Dover's black with white piping pad and it looks very nice, but it's a different brand than you posted. Usually whatever I bought in Dover was nice quality (so far I had back luck only with the boots from there, and they took them back), so if you really like the look I'd give it a try (and price is good too).

I also found couple
