A friend of mine gave me a bunch of old saddle pads she was no longer using.
Most of them looked fine, but this poor one was so bleached and worn I decided it needed something new:


I had leftovers from making visibility sheets for another horse, so I found a piece of a cheap visibility vest and pinned it to the pad at an angle I liked,



Then I hand stitched it to the pad, so the stitches don't go all the way through the pad. It would probably work just as well machine stitching it all the way through, but I don't trust my machine around thick fabric.


It looks pretty much like the store bought visibility pads except I paid about 5 dollars for the material and nothing for the pad Smiley

Excellent job, and a great way to re-use an old riding blanket/pad.

That's a really great idea.  I don't ride, so it didn't occur to me that horses needed visibility pads too, but it makes a lot of sense.

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Love seeing horse stuff here. I should totally try this with my extra saddle pads!
