    Default I want a hunter green dressage saddle pad, does it exist?

    Does anyone know where I can find a hunter green dressage pad? My son is starting to ride his pony using a dressage saddle. My pads are maroon and orange, the pony is chestnut orange, major clash. I know it shouldn't matter what the pad color is but DS is taking such an interest the least this mommy could do is find him a saddle pad that doesn't clash with the pony! Non clashing colors other than hunter green would be nice too, she just looks nice in green. All I have been able to find in dressage are white and black and I admit I have not looked too hard.

    Thanks!

    I bought a Theo Sommer dressage pad from Dressage Extensions that was emerald/hunter green with silver scroll piping. It's been a few years though, but check them out - they have the best dressage pad selection.

    Not absolutely straight in front of the knee roll, but the right color....

    Lokk on ebay! I get really nice ones there. I have a chestnut mare and found an olive green/gold dressage pad and it looks awesome on her!

    Good luck!

    I think I have a Rider's International Baby Pad in hunter (for surcingle), and a of my other two hunter pads, I'm not sure brands, but think my all purpose one's a Roma pad and nicely contoured one is also a Rider's International pad. They're definitely out there!

    I found this auction while looking for a purple pad for my horse... Looks like a pretty nice pad for the price and it comes in hunter!

    Seams Right will make a pad in any color you want, with any trim you want, and any size you want. She has different shades of hunter green. It's also IMO the best quality for the price -

    I have several AP pads that work quite well with most dressage saddles. So don't look JUST at dressage pads. Just look for a not-as-forward AP pad. You will have many more choices.

    The PRI saddle pads come in hunter green. I've bought 2 of them and they last forever. Great pad for around $40. They have a nice thickness to them. Good luck, RiverDance

    I just picked up an Eous brand pad for my chestnut. I got him navy, but was debating getting the hunter green one. It was only about $30 at my local saddle shop.

    I saw some Centaur hunter green dressage pads at a horse show this past weekend for $9. The vendor was Cheval in Colorado Springs.

    I second seams right pads. They last forever and are competely custom made. You can call them and ask what colors/sizes that they have in inventory. The pre-made one's are cheaper.

    I second the PRI saddle pads. I have the both the square and the contoured dressage pads and LOVE them. The contour pads are large enough to fit under my Duett Fidelio saddle.

    I remembered seeing a gorgeous Eurofit dark green velvet dressage pad on eBay. It was a store item that had been there for awhile. So, I go search for it on eBay (it sold) to share with the OP. In the search process, I found and bought myself a Eurofit show coat. Thanks OP. LOL!

    I got my saddle pad from a place in Louisville, KY. They are WONDERFUL and cheap I think I paid like $17 for a nice dressage pad. They have every color you can imagine. I got a nice bright royal blue to match all my polos! But I remember seeing green and purple as well.
