Patterns for english saddle bags

I've been trail riding with friends who ride western, but I use a dressage saddle. I don't have any dee rings on the back.

Rather than buy saddle bags, I'm hoping to be able to make some custom to all the things I'll be carrying, but I can't find any general patterns online. Following (and editing) a pattern is a lot easier than making one from scratch.

Know of any good ones for cantle or pommel bags? I've got dee's on the front, so those can clip or tie on there, but back ones need to have velcro loops or something for the girth billets.

Hi :) that's a tricky one!
Maybe you could find old ones for sale at a tack shop and pull them apart and use them as a pattern?

I have used regular western saddle bags. I put them under the saddle, on top of the pads. Then I run a tie from the saddlebag tie spots on the side and attach them to the billet, or girth. Any saddlebag will bounce. I shortened the distance of the material between the bags so that the saddlebags were snug against the saddle.



Another thing I have done is taken a very large square pad and sewn nylon saddle bags to the pad sides. These didn't bounce. You had to wash it in a large washer because it was bulky.

I have never seen one of these, but maybe you could make a pattern for it

I didn't even think about putting regular ones between the saddle and pad. Great idea!

If I end up drafting a pattern, I'll be sure to post it!
