Competition saddle pads

On the saddle pads with the number holders are you supposed to put the number on both sides or only the left? Because someone told me the left but at the last show I went to they had it on both sides.

I only use a shaped saddle pad for most of my competitions. But when I go to a little fair or open show I'll sometimes use my number pad. I put the numbers on both sides, so does everyone else I know with that kind of pad. I think it would like kind of funny with the number only on one side.

I used a shaped pad for USEF hunters and a number holder pad when I'm being judged against AQHA standards, like at 4-H shows. If you use a shaped pad for 4-H shows you stick out like a sore thumb. I've always put the number in both sides so the judge knows what number you are on either rein.

Where do you get two copies of the number?

A lot of people make their own numbers when they put it on both sides.

How can you make your own numbers?

We print out and cut out a bunch of numbers and take a glue stick and plain white cardstock and glue the number cut outs to the cardstock. I like the cardstock best as it look neater (doesn't flip flop or slide in the pocket) and holds up better over multi-day shows.
