Last weekend at the tack exchange in Concord, I picked up this awesome older saddle pad for next to nothing. My horse is very picky about his saddle pads so I figured it would be worth trying it on him. He absolutely LOVES it.

Naturally, that means I haven't found new ones for sale anywhere. The pad feels like it has some sort of foam core and is flannel or similar on both sides with nylon binding. The tag says "Hinshaw" but I Googled the name and came up empty. Does anyone know if these pads are still made (and if so, where to find them) or if there is a similar pad on the market?

TIA!

I found this, "Hinshaw Manufacturing Co. of Burlington, N.C., produced Hinshaw saddle blankets in the mid-’70s." That sort of makes it sound defunct.

It looks like, if it's the same place still, they now manufacture rope. ??
