Saddle pad - ever made one?
Talking to another mom at DD's 4H meeting, she mentioned making a western saddle pad out of an "egg crate" style mattress pad. The person said they were cool and comfortable for the horse, but didn't have any with her to show me.
She might bring one to next month's meeting, but in the meantime - has anyone here done this? Did you just cut a square a bit bigger then your saddle or did you go all out and use the pad as a core and sew up layers? Did you and your horse like it?
If it really works well I'd like to try it. Hubby decided after 2 weeks he hated our mattress pad so it's been stuffed in the top of the closet waiting for me to get around to making dog beds or something out of it. I'd rather have saddle pads, the dogs sleep on our bed anyway :lol:
