You can get a Diamond wool under pad for relatively cheap, even new. They are 1/2 to 3/4 inch.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Rofl! I think I'm going to be the same. And my boyfriend is such a girl about things matching, that he'll probably be the same way when we get him a horse.

Ok. Random question. Do you think it would matter/be a bad thing if I used a Tush Cush on my saddle? Lol

And these tack sites are going to be my undoing!! I just found THREE more blankets/pads I love!

And they have red and black in that one, as well as the teal and blue!! Squee!!!

I would not use a tush cush in the show ring, but that doesn't mean you can;t use it the rest of the time and just take it off for your class......as you go in the gate.

I love the patterned pads.......there are SO many I want. Way too many choices! And, I love that my guy now is black! It was not as fun with my chestnut.....love him to death, but thankfully his show days are over. No more matchy for him-other than his blankies and their monograms......

My old gelding (the bay I was riding in that pic on the other thread) was difficult to match with, too.

The only "negative" about how loud of a pinto that Aires is, is that if I do too much pattern, it'll look too busy and distracting.

I guess, but at least he is not a chestnut Overo!

Some folks also look really sharp in just a solid black pad with a nice tooled (in your case basket weave) leather wear strip on the edges. Very sharp, plain and classy. You could still wear your teal shirt, too.
