Pad arrived yesterday and was able to try it out today. Love the colour, agree the olive webbing suits it, really like the shape. Terrified of getting it dirty! Need to find a good brush for the felt.
As you can see in the photo, the length is about perfect, but it could stand to be slightly less deep in the drop. The girth is right up to the bottom of the pad, and actually rides underneath the pad slightly when fully tightened. But is perfectly functional as is, rode in it today. Stayed in place nicely. Very happy with it, would like one in each colour! Thank you very much Bettina!
I love love love my wool felt pad. It’s all I use now. Everyone should have one. It gets better the more it gets used. My pad is totally shaped to their back now.
For your future designs, my trim is folding under.
I rode in mine today. We both loved it. How can I have just one? I feel like ditching all my cotton pads.
Best pads, ever!! A holiday elf gave me and Whisper one in burgundy and I’ll not easily go back to the others. It fits her perfectly and is simply elegant and super low-maintenance. Also, she stays cool underneath it.
My custom made wool pad for my TW and Specialized saddle!!
Stays in place !

Your pads are beautiful.
Really happy with my wool felt dressage pad! Finding a pad that fits my saddle without swallowing my 14hh pony is challenging, but Bettina was great with communication to make sure we got it just right. I’ve wondered why wool isn’t more popular for English saddle pad- nice drape and stays stable throughout the ride!
