trouble finding a saddle pad thats the right size for a 17 1/2 " saddle.
does anyone else have trouble finding a saddle pad that's big enough for a 17 1/2 inch saddle? I have 2 dif saddles that are both mid 1980s one is a Passier and sons K BAum and the other is a Jefferies "the Huntsman". The Passier and Sons has pretty forward flaps and is the hardest to fit but both are pretty hard. How do you ladies get a pad that fits an older and bigger saddle. The shape of the Passier seems different than the pads today.....just more forward but even with I try to add the extra inches into the length the pads seem too short down the spine and often the back of the panels (the cantel) is sitting right on the back stitching of the pad. I've bought 5 diferent pads trying to measure and buy the biggest ones I can find and I never seem to get one that really fits.
I want a fleece or faux fleece pad. Is there any manufacturer that makes larger size fleece pads for a real world price?
