For Christmas, I got my boarders saddle pads with our barn logo. I got H/J pads, which of course were too small for the barn's sole Dressage rider. Any recommendations of where to find a quilted hunter green saddle pad with tan piping without the expense of going custom? Any Dressage tack websites/catalogs to recommend? The H/J ones I ordered came from Dover which does not have the same pad in a Dressage model. Thanks in advance.

ebay is your friend. I have seen that color combo frequent dressage pads for sale.

Dressage Extensions www.dressageextensions.com has a lot of colored pads. You could probably find something there that would work.

I think both Dover and DE have the "Classics" Collection custom pads. Not too pricey, but not cheap either... certainly available in those colours.

I know you're trying to do 'barn colors' but I'm sure as the lone DQ, she would be perfectly happy with a plain white saddle pad, which is available more cheaply through Dover.

aww the dq wants hunter green too- or at least white wth hunter green.

Toklat pads can be done in those colours

My favorite site is www.seamsright.com. That place is great for pads but expensive, it is just a suggestion.

This DQ is in forever search of a pumpkin dressage pad! If any of you guys find one or know where to get one (the woman from above site is out of that color) PM me and let me know. I LOVE color! I like a nice white pad too, I like looking crisp and classy, but, I like to express my colorful side too! LOL

Bugs - Eskadron has awesome fall/spice colors.

I was just thinking that if the OP had to buy saddle pads for everyone in her barn, she probably didn't want to spend $$$$$ on Toklat, SeamsRight, etc. If I were the only DQ in the barn, I would just be happy that she realized that I needed a different size/cut of saddle pad.

Another vote for Seams Right. She could probably whip up a dressage pad in green/gold in a TAPESTRY pattern!!

I found a couple at smart pak...
although pne's sage, not quite hunter, and I'm not sure if the other comes in dressage size or not.

Hey Bugs,
Look into PRI pads. They come in a wide variety of colors and I could have sworn I've seen pumpkin, but I can't seem to find it right now. Also, this seller on eBay often has good colors. I think she's had a terracotta that was pretty darn pumpkin. http://stores.ebay.com/HORSE-HEAVEN_W0QQssPageNameZstrkQ3amefsQ3amesstQQtZkm She's great if you shoot her a question. ;)
