Removing a logo from a saddle pad/ covering it up?

I have a very nice XC show pad in a specific color that I need a patch put on/the current logo taken off. It has the name/logo of my previous barn/trainer on it and I want it either covered up or taken off. Does anyone know of a place or site that will do this or that I can customize a patch from?

I need this done by my first show in April and I have two pads that need to be done. One turquoise and one white.

Thank you!

Saddle pads in question (as you can see, the logos are quite large):

I am afraid that is sort of like trying to cover up a tattoo....you will have to put something larger over it....maybe your number? Removing it MAY be possible, if you have hours to sit and carefully use a stitch ripper and remove the stitching. I would do that from the underside, if you want to try, but the darker pad may be slightly faded and you may still be able to see where the round patch was even if removed. Even if you get all the stitching out, chances are it will not look right. Embroidery and appliqué stitching is very tough.

If they're sewn on, you can cut them out carefully with a razor blade or sharp scissors.
If theyre screened on, you can put a patch over them, and a matching patch on the other side.

They're definitely sewn on. Very tightly, I may add. I would hate to try to rip it out and damage the pads. They were quite expensive and I still want to use them for shows.

I don't mind if it looks weird on the underside, or I can still see the original patch, as long as no one else can. What kind of patch is recommended? As said, it has to be quite large and I know what I want it to say. I think a piece of cloth sewn in/sewn over the original would be best since the material is a quilt-like pattern. Where could I find patches like this?

Also, the other side has my horse's name on them, so I'd like to keep them for that reason also. Getting other ones made with personalized stuff like that can get pricey!

Google "custom appliques" that will give you several companies that should be able to make the patch you want to cover the existing one. (which you may need to remove anyway to put another on as it will be very thick and stiff if you don't).

Then, once you get it you will have to find someone who can sew on appliqués.....neither are cheap, but that is the nay real way to have it look right, imo.
