Are you wanting to make a contoured pad or just a square saddle pad?  The show pad is contoured, is that what you are talking about?

I just took my daughter's saddle and used it as an outline and added to the measurements so that it sat not far below the saddle where it is supposed to sit.

Have you tried to outline one? You could use the faux wool looking fabric to make one. Get another pc of fabric and sew to the underneathe.

i havent made one yet but i am going to the store to get some fabric and such to make one! here are the instructions i made::

need:
a saddle pad to measure
3-4 yards of fabric?
matting (or stuffed animal stuffing)
sewing machine
etc.

instructions:
measure out the saddle pad and use the measurements to cut two peices that are the same size. one will be the back and one will be the front or top of the pad. grab the matting and cut it to be the same size as well. you can make it however cushiony you want! (i would try and match the squishyness of the saddle pad used for measuring). lay the bottom fabric peice facing down, then the matting on top of that, then the top fabric facing up on top of that. sew around the outsides leaving about 1/4-1/2 inch edge. use different stitches to make designs all over the pad to hold everything together and not make it slippery, or use the simple dashed line stitch and make a grid-like stitching across it. however you want basically! Smiley take some long strips of the same or different fabric for the edging. fold it in half and slip over edges to create a nice smooth looking edge. sew that on! i am going to use the blind stitch (a hand stitch) but you can use the sewing machine too! HAVE FUN RIDING! Cheesy
