Hi, on another board (in my language and for my country, so different potential buyers) I see that a lot of people actually want custom saddlepads, even better if you can "write" (<--put the right verb here) some simple things on it, like the horse's name. It is true that you can find many different saddlepads around, but can you have saddlepad, blanket, ear-thing, leg wrappings all matching and of your favorite color combo?
Other custom things that people love are:
Those ear-things (especially if you highly customize them and make them to match the custom saddle pad)
Rope halters, rope bosals, and all things that you can make with rope
Name-plates for the horse's box
Little cute stuff, like keyrings
Show halters and collars for Arabians
Customized bags: you have to be very crafty for those, but you can meet infinite needing of bags for saddlepads, saddlepads and boots, saddlepads and grooming kit... maybe start with something that You want and see how to make it better
Blankets and pillows for dogs: some people adore to have the dog's stuff matching the horse's
You have to do a good work and offer different stuff from what's already on the market.
Remember, as a private you'll never beat the industrial low-price, so you have to win with quality and unique design. And, aside from the first things (that you usually need as good examples of what you can do) you can just craft something when there is a buyer :)
