What type was it. It should be fine to ride in even if you wash it.

oh, never wash on the day you wish to ride. Do you have a wool lap throw blanket at home ? I guess you could use that in a pinch.

You can try a car blanket, if you have one. When you're using any type of blankets like that, you'll need to be careful during the folding process and putting on the back of the horse to keep all wrinkles smoothed out so as not to cause an irritation.

...if your saddle fits correctly, you don't actually NEED to use a saddlepad. (Only with english saddles, of course). English saddles are made to be used with no pads. Pads are only used to keep the saddle from getting dirty. They don't actually "cushion" anything for the horse, unless they're dense (felt) or specialty pads (Professional's Choice, etc.).

i've been in your boat - it was saddle pad washing day, ALL my pads were hanging on the fence drying......... and a barn friend says 'lets go for a trail ride'. um........ glances wildly around.......... grabbed a big towel and folded it once so that it was roughly the size of a western saddle pad, under my english saddle. worked great. we didn't ride hard, just walk and trot along the trail.
