    Default Well, if anyone knows this, COTH will know this...

    Where the heck do I get a Hello Kitty saddle pad that can be overnighted today???

    Fashion Horse does not actually have them, the Internet lied.

    While I understand the world will not end if I fail to procure this, I have a client who is convinced it will, so I would love to make it happen. ;-) I figure his daughter is not the only kid in the world who absolutely had to have one!

    So you googled and that R9 custom house creations did not have one?

    If not, try www.thefind.com

    Or ebay. Everything is for sale on ebay.

    And FedEx can get it to you overnight.

    How about this outfit? Didn't check for shipping options though...

    They have a page of different Hello Kitty saddlepads.

    I'm glad I thought to search, because I see they have a Steelers saddle pad!

    Hello Kitty saddle pads, who knew!!

    Worst case is you could send the picture of one that will be coming. I hope it works out though and you can get it shipped overnight. How very thoughtful of you!

    Being well known for never having a boring saddle pad they have fulfilled my every wish and the pads are both heavy duty and built to last. First one I bought from them was about 3 years ago Rainbow one still looks fabulous. I do NOT put them in the dryer though... I always wash and hang them to preserve the colors.

    Run to walmart, buy hello kitty ribbon and some of that tape you can use to iron it onto the saddle pad, or some fabric glue (sometimes they have hello kitty patches) find a saddle pad....hide in a room with an ironing board, iron, saddle pad and ribbon.

    Yup, somewhere like Joanne's or Michael's would probably have Hello Kitty patches. I would sew them on rather than glueing, though.

    I had seen on some site Hello Kitty fabric and there were saddle pads on another.

    OMG.Love.Hello.Kitty. I have the band aids, oh they are so cute. I tell my husband if he gets hurt doing any chores he gets a Hello Kitty band aid. So he tries not to get hurt. I told him if he had a heart attack, etc he would have a HK band aid on his forehead. He is embarrased to wear a HK band aid. Not me. Band aids should be fun. ok, ok, I am 50 yrs old, I was born young, and plan to stay young! I love whimsical things like the pads. CUTE! I ride english too.

    There was duck tape thread, and you can get HK at Target.

    Yes, I am looking at the R9 site and they were they ones who had all the pads, what fun! GO. Lets us know what you get.

    at the very least a reinforced stitch, but in a pinch who can beat it right?

    And what about a 'Hello Kitty' saddle?

    Patricia Rochat, a french saddle maker, makes them!

    OMG, I want the Hello Kitty saddle just so I could ride in it in a GM clinic. With pink bling-y stirrups. I think that would finally drive him over the edge.

    I agree with the others who say to look for an iron-on patch or ribbon at the fabric store (even Target or Wal-Mart might have one). That's how I made my Sabres saddle pad. (:

    Oh, definitely. Just, I'd go back and sew it before it gets washed, because I tried to "monogram" a pad with iron on letters once and it didn't work out too well.

    OMG. I will pay you to do this, so long as I get to be a spectator. This is so much better even than the Disco Stirrups Debacle.
    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    If you're looking for Hello Kitty stuff locally, try Target, Hot Topic, Claire's/The Icing in the mall, or Pac Sun. In that order.
