Money Saving Tip of the Day

If you’re looking for a way to add some color to a simple show outfit, a bright saddle pad could be the answer. Whether you are wearing a plain white shirt and jeans and want to have fun or looking for a way to bring out your favorite color in your show jacket, there are a lot of options. Mayatex has been making affordable and diverse show blankets for years and they retail from around $30.00 and up. They have a wide variety of solid color blankets in the “San Juan” collection. You can buy them through a number of stores, have them custom made, or my favorite; get them cheap on eBay( this link will take you directly to Mayatex blankets on eBay)! It can cut the cost of one saddle pad in half! I have at least half a dozen different blankets I’ve accumulated over the years and I love to show in my favorite white show shirt and change the colors often!

  1. Are these pretty thick? Do you just use this then the saddle?

  2. Hi
    Are these thick pads where all I need is this then my saddle?
    Thanks

    • Sorry it’s taken so long to answer! I’m on vacation this week and haven’t been by a computer. You will need a thick saddle pad or a felt saddle pad liner underneath these. They aren’t thick and don’t offer any support for the horse. I just use my work saddle pad underneath
