I may or may not have an issue with collecting saddle pads. I mean, I know other people have WAY more than I do and I DO have 500 horses so it makes sense but still. I can't turn away from a nice saddle pad.
Yet this is a story of how I (almost) did!
I had a $50 gift card to Dover from September that I never got around to using. I have so much stuff and I like to run pretty trim with my supplies and well, Dover just doesn't have what I need in the stores much for me anymore and their shipping is bleh. But I had the card and was going down for Christmas Eve for my parents and decided to stop in. I took a lap and thought about getting more white breeches but they didn't have anything I really wanted and then I debated a turnout sheet for Vana but they didn't have the colors or size I wanted so I checked out the saddle pads and found this lovely pad and his friend on the left in a more grey color.
They were both lovely but I decided to get some hooks and things for the trailer becuase we seriously need to organize 4 horses and 2 rider's worth of gear in a bad way and I headed to our family gathering. Naturally at the gift giving, I got ANOTHER $50 Dover gift card (thanks mom!) and put it with my other cards at the house. Last week had me going to Houston twice for the airport so on the second trip I stopped in to get some more schooling boots (that I didn't really really need) and decided to see if I still liked the pad that much. The oatmealish color was gone but Mr Grey was still there so I grabbed it, tested it on the basic Custom Advantage that they had in store (Working Student is on me to get longer drop pads but I don't like longer spined pads so my saddle looks better, etc) and it fit beautifully. It was also 17% off this week (it wasn't the week before) and ended up costing me only $17. Boom. I brought it home, rode in it, and we looked so awesome.
Thanks for classing us up!
