I was just looking into getting a western pad myself and I ended up looking on Ebay and I found a huge number (like 20 pages of 50 items per page) of really adorable pads for under $30. I'm pretty sure I even saw some that were teal (there was basically any color you would ever want/need). I ended up getting one that was reversible with neon pink on one side and lime green on the other. It was only $21! =D

I meant that a blanket can be used by itself. Sorry, I confused myself. LOL

Thank you for your help everyone. :o) This information is great.

I use a Western legend pad, they are a bit more pricey but are worth the extra money! I have 3 and swear by them:
Western Legend All American Saddle Pad, FREE SHIPPING! - eBay (item 250487000109 end time Sep-22-09 09:13:35 PDT)

Obviously this one is a little loud, but they come in all colors. The maroon ones are gorgeous!

I find the best pad that has worked for me and my horse, is made from a neoprene substance. I couldn't find the exact one online. But it is very breathable, and my horses don't sweat near as much as others I see when we go on trail rides, or even just to the arena. It also has good grip and doesn't allow the saddle to slide as much, and it is so easy to clean off, I just wash it off with a hose and let it dry. It also doesn't itch. One time, my horse hated a blanket so much, he lay down and started rolling! It was just so itchy.

What color?

I saw the tealcolor saddle pad on ebay........but the other day I was in tractor supply store and I saw a nice red pad. So that made me think...what color would look better on my horse? Teal or red? Its just a solid red color with the black leather pad things... That would look nice with the black western saddle. But the teal would look nice too... What color should I get?

Here is a picture of my horse. He is tacked up in english tack.

I vote teal. I think red might be too harsh of a color for him...but who knows? I think he does look really good in blue^^^so teal shouldn't look bad. =)

Why do you say red wouldn't look good on him?

I feel that red might clash with his brown. But I'm not a big fan of red in general. I think the blue goes well with his white and his brown, but he's your horse, it's your call. =)

This place has a lot of inexpensive pads.

I have two saddle pads and I use both depending on my mood.
