I'm looking for some extra large saddle pads to fit an 18" saddle. It has longer flaps, as well, and most pads either are not deep enough (spine to girth strap area) for my husband's saddle. He hates when the saddle flaps get stuck in the girth strap, if that makes sense. Right now he uses a dressage pad, which, well, I'm not loving the looks of. . I'm thinking early for Christmas ideas.

I have 18.5" toward flap saddle. Dover's poly pad copy fits, my PRI pad almost fits (flap is just a bit too forward), and I often use a toklate fleece barrel racing pad- offers great padding while not bulky under the leg.
I've found that Ogilvy makes a great AP pad in large that fits my forward flap 19" CWD very well. It actually has room all around it (no saddle overhang!) & the girth straps are in a good place, and they are not too thick or too skimpy. Mine have all washed well, also. Expensive, but worth it. You can find them here (Canadian company): http://www.ogilvyequestrian.com/shop....php?id=3&=SID. I bought mine at Rolex, from the company's booth, so I haven't ordered from the website directly.
I haven't tried Dover's extra long pads yet, but they may be a cheaper option. If you're looking for shaped pads, Wilkers does have their fleece pads in 18" and 19" options, but they are harder to find. I think Equus Now had the 18 & 19" options on their site.
