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?
thanks,
Angi

mine does that too. Maybe it's just me but it looks like it fits pretty well. I don't think you have any real issue.

If you know how to sew and you want longer pads maybe you can custom make the pads?


Oh and are those contour cute pads or straight cut...straight cut doesn't work with my horse or saddle...it kinda seems shorter and it bunches up on my horse.

both / either really neither one seems to fit right
when there is enough room in back its too close on the flaps and vise versa

Thank you SO MUCH !!

thanks so much that is EXACTLY what i'm looking for! a reasonably priced pad that is sized according to saddle size!!! I have looked and looked and looked online and never can find them sized like that. I must be searching wrong. i put things like: English saddle pad 17 1/2 " , 18 englsih saddle pad, englsih pad for a 17 1/2 inch saddle, english saddle pads by saddle size.....
