    Default Dressage Saddle Covers

    I am searching for a dressage saddle cover, does anyone have a recommendation for one that they are happy with?

    I have a custom color monogram one from smartpak that I really like. It's for dust cover mostly, not really for cover and travel thrown about

    A gal at the barn has this one.

    It's like a sturdy, space age shower cap. I want one.

    I have been quite happy with this inexpensive one from DE.

    I don't think that Toklat makes the one that I have anymore, but I have a really cute blue plaid carrier kind of like this:

    It has a waterproof canvas outside and a fleece-lined inside and is a super nice bag and it fits the longer flaps of my dressage saddle.

    Hmm - I have a larger seat on mine, 18", and this one wasn't quite long enough and would cause the ends of the flaps to curl. I actually ended up using a fleece Centaur cover - can't recall where I bought it, but just a generic saddle cover that was deep/big enough to not pull on the saddle. For my other dressage saddle, my sister sewed one using the other as a pattern. Not too hard to make if you are crafty - fabric and some elastic and that way you can get "custom colors" that fit.

    I have the Hunter green/Blackwatch plaid version of this one. I love it because the outside is waterproof and nothing sticks to it, but the inside is fleece to help protect my saddle. Mine is currently on a 17.5 Neidersuss Symphonie.

    I have an 18" saddle and had the same problem. I found one that fits lots of room. I will look tomorrow what it is.

    I have this one for my 17.5 JRD, and it's seems roomy enough to fit something larger:

    While it certainly wasn't the cheapest option, it's quite sturdy and I actually feel like it protects my saddle (I have the version with lining and it's very thick). Plus, I got to pick which colors I wanted

    Tracy at http://tracymicheledesigns.com/index.html makes saddle covers. Email her for detailed information ... I've asked her about one of those waterproof-on-the-outside-fleece-on-the-inside with the MTC logo embroidered on the outside layer and am waiting to hear back.

    If it's simply an "on the saddle rack" cover you want--Trumbull Mountain had a really nice one.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    I personally got sick of ill fitting saddle covers and set out to design ones that actually fit the larger saddles of today( knee rolls and all), allow the saddle to breathe and prevent molding, protect the saddle from scratches that can occur with rough canvas and stay put during travel or cats in the tack room jumping on them

    Do you have photos of dressage saddle covers?
    I'm actually looking for a padded, travel bag.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone, I will check out all of the options you have sent to me. I knew I could get some great answers from COTH members.

    Bumping this up. Does anyone know of a place where I can get a custom saddle cover for under $50? I'd love one in gray and black or gray and maroon with my monogram.

    Every zip-up/bag I tried didn't quite fit, more due to shape than size, on my saddle. I tried several & returned them all. They also were a pain to get on & off.
    I ended up getting just a cover, rather than the zip/bag, here: http://www.fashionhorse.com/dressagecovers.htm, along with a flashy pad.

    >30$ & I get a lot of compliments on the cover & the pad.

    I am not a fan of hot pink zebra stripes, but they have some cool brocade patterns. The cover fits great & I imagine would fit many shapes/sizes. It isn't waterproof, however, if that is what you are looking for.

    There are also similar on ebay.

    I had one made by Sally's Equine Threads on Etsy! I ADORE it! I told her I wanted a black cover with a light pink and white stripe down the middle and she made me the best cover! I love it! I then had one made for my jump saddle in light pink with a black and white stripe down the center. They are polar fleece with elastic and really stay on well. Very happy and they aren't expensive at all!
