I know. It's tacky. Save your breath. I DON'T CARE. :D

I can only find black and white, and more black and white, and maybe grey or navy or hunter.

I want to indulge my inner 12-year-old (Who so desperately wanted a pony but didn't even start riding until she was 20) with a pink pad. And maybe a lavender one too. With blingy jewels. (I will probably have to add those on my own.)

I would love to put my gelding in pink and brown plaid. I doubt such thing even exists, much less in dressage size.

Oh man thanks for that link! I've been looking and looking for another shaped dressage pad like one I inherited by accident. I think the High Point Custom (http://www.raraequus.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=97&idcategory=14) is it! Custom piping and everything! :D

I have a many of the PRI pads - they come in a dizzying array of colors.

If your inner child can wait until after Christmas, you can get them on sale at VTO during their after Christmas sale. Almost everything will be 20% off

I also scored some great dressage pads from HorseLoverz during their BOGO - Equine Conoissuer in hot pink with black trim and aqua with black trim for $7.50 each!!

And check out FashionHorse - they have a huge variety of pads in colors and patterns that should make you swoon!

Too funny! I myself have been trying to find some funky dressage saddle pads! Harder than you think.... what, do they think dressage riders can't have some fun colors on their horse? Pfftt.

I buy AP pads that are a bit large. They don't look out of place with most dressage saddles at all, and the variety of colors and prints is much more extensive.

I have a navy plaid AP pad that I really like on my pink gelding, and a hot pink pad for my dark chestnut mare. Both are Roma, but they haven't held up too well. One or two washes and they start looking crummy.

You could also buy a white pad and some fabric dye.

Wow. You have a PINK gelding!! I am SO jealous! :D

My chestnut roan w/a blanket Appy was "pinkish mauve" when body clipped. LOL
My youngster is a more solid, not quite so roany, chestnut with a snowflake blanket, but his winter coat is so thin/fine, I don't clip. I doubt he'd be as "pink" as his predecessor though.

What I would like is a RUST/BRICK saddle pad - AP or dressage. Haven't been able to find one ANYWHERE. Just like only hideously expensive TS breeches seem to come in rust. I just want an "everyday" pair, and for "everyday" I don't pay more than 75 bucks,and preferably more like $40 tor $60 (or less!).

Yep, he is pink. Well, more of an apricot-pink, but still pink. He's starting to fade to more of a champagne color, especially when clipped. Maybe by the time he's 10, he will be white.

Dressage Extensions has all the pads. I've never seen such a selection. I love buying from this (http://shop.ebay.com/herranz2006/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686) seller on ebay. I have several of these pads. I even bought two of the teal trimmed floral. The quality is superb, and I like using the Hawaiian shirt pads in the depths of winter.

I've been toying with the idea of putting supermodel in a purple pad but I haven't found one I really like. She doesn't mind DD's pink camo pad but will usually pick the solid color on the fence if she sees it. We walk by the fence where I line out 3 or 4 pads and she grabs it off the rail on the way to the rack. There have been times when she hasn't grabbed a pad and I'll ask why she didn't pick one. That usually elicits a sigh and either she'll go back and pick one or she'll continue to the rack and I'll pick one. (Either DD or I are leading her she's not walking there loose!)

Do you live near KY? Bit of Britain has a pad sale at Rolex every year and sell dressage (and A/P) pads in all kinds of colors for cheap. I stock up on their A/P pads every year!

I SO did not need that link to the ebay seller. I think I must have 30 saddle pads already for the 3 beasts. But one can never have too many, right?

The all purpose version of this saddle pad fits under my 18inch dressage saddle nicely. The sides are a bit 'short' but definitely come under the flap. I have a pony so I appreciate it not swallowing him. Just FYI

Many, many colors to choose from. Custom to your specifications, add piping and trim. I have used these pads for many years and they are virtually indestructible, wash and dry well and look fabulous !

I second Seams Right Saddle Pads.

My oldest pad is about 20 years old -a blue denim color. She has a great color selection and combinations and is great to work with! :yes:

When I was a teenager I had some great ones...leopard print with matching wraps, fuscia tie die, and my personal favorite, one with 50's pinup girls on it (which was our "official" pad for my high school team. We went to Catholic school so I suppose that was our little form of rebellion). I think I got most of them at our Horse Expo, but you might be able to find some great ones through the manufacturer which I believe was Equine Textiles.

Well, VTO certainly has a great selection of saddle pads, BUT NO RUST (BRICK). I'm kicking myself now because a year or so agao, Schneider's DID have a rust pad, and on sale no less, and I didn't buy one. *pout* Oh well, it's not like a NEED any new pads. Right now my two favorites are a tan ultrasuede on bound in leopard (!), and the no longer available Kavalcade denim pad.

Just gotta say how much I love their pads! I've only ever had to retire one, and that was more because it was light grey and somehow turned pink in the wash, not because it wore out. :winkgrin: They seem to last forever, they look really sharp, and they're nowhere near as expensive as some of the others I've seen in nifty colors. I love some of the more subtle ones, too, like the brown with grey piping and so on ... looks a little different without being loud, you know?

My favorite dressage saddle pad is lime green and it has pink ribbon piping that has palm trees on it. I found it on ebay. I just did a search of dressage saddle pads.

If you're going to bump up a 5yo thread with some shameless self promotion, you might want to make sure you have the right discipline pad! Although 5 star pads are popular (and expensive) advertising is not allowed on this site.

I also obessesed over the USG pads but I've found that the one I bought faded very badly. It was the lake blue color. No it's almost pastel blue/green.

I like the PRI pads but I'd like something just a tiny bit thicker, like the Roma pads. Roma has tons of funky colors but finding those colors in a dressage pad is difficult. Most of mine are AP pads. I have a short flap on my saddle so AP pads work fine for schooling.

I'd like to get a coral saddle pad but I don't think it will ever happen. I have a bay mare that I think it would look great on.

Padded Ponies is the best. Tons of fabric colors & patterns to choose from. Yes, they're a bit pricey but the quality is worth it.

I'm just wondering if they'd do the Dr. Who one on an "other than white" pad - white not all that practical for every day!
