Smile Saddle Pad question

Today I went to the tack store and I saw a western saddle pad that I wanted..but it looked small to me. The measurement was 30 by 30.. So I was wondering if it would fit with my wintec western saddle that I have. There is a teal saddle pad on ebay that I want..thats also 30 by 30... I have posted pics of the saddle on here before..but I forgot what you said about it. So here I go again...

So let me know if you think the 30 by 30 saddle pad will fit the saddle.

Thanks.

30 x 30 is about the smallest dimensions you can get in a horse size pad. Although it wouldn't work for my big saddle, based on your pictures, it will probably work for yours. Best way is to measure your saddle - I'm betting it's about 28" or a little less.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

It would most definitely work.

I use a 29" (long) saddle pad, and my saddle is a fairly large training saddle and I've never had any problems.

I once used a round skirted saddle with my pad and the pad was more than long enough.

I am pretty sure it would work. Your saddle isnt to large at all.

It would definiley work! I have seen some trail pads they make that are in the shape of a saddle, way smaller than that. =]

Just like everyone said, it will work:)
I have a saddle shaped just like that, except mine is an Abetta, and I got this pad for it...ok never mind I couldnt find a link for it, but this is the same brand, colors, and same shape. Even though its a bareback pad lol RIDERS CHOICE BAREBACK SADDLE PAD PURPLE FREE SHIP NEW - eBay (item 380095073824 end time Nov-02-09 08:45:20 PST)

Oh, yeah. 30 x 30 would definitely work for your saddle. If it was a bigger style roping, ranch, or trail saddle with large square skirts, you would probably need a 32x32 but for yours, 30x30 will be fine.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
