We can create your ideal custom saddle pad, either in plain wool felt or with a woven top.

Read on for details of the custom pad ordering process, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

Custom pad is a great option if you have a very short-backed horse, or otherwise need a pad that is not a standard length, thickness or drop.

Or, maybe you simply want a pad in your favourite colours and design!

Either way, we can help your dreams come true - an Equinen custom western saddle pad is the answer!

You can have any of our existing designs made for you in your desired length and thickness at no extra cost. As long as the design patter and colours stay the same, we treat it as a normal pad, not a custom pad. However, please note that it still takes approximately 6-8 weeks to have pads made to your specification.

Creating a custom western saddle pad


Your horse's comfort is the most important thing. That's why we start by determining the correct size pad for your horse.


This includes:

  • Pad length (front to back)

  • Pad drop (spine to bottom edge)

  • Pad thickness


Once we know what size pad your horse or pony needs, it's time to focus on the looks. When we talk about the design, we mean the pattern of the woven top. This step doesn't apply to plain felt pads.

Please note that whilst we welcome you to send us images of pad designs that you like, we will not directly copy somebody else's pad designs.


Once you know what design you want, it's time to talk about colours. Each design has a certain number of colours, normally between 3-7 different ones.


We will discuss your colour preferences with you, and help you choose colours that go well together.

Once we receive the order form from you, we go through it and contact you if we need to clarify anything regarding your pad order.

For woven pads, we draw a sketch of your pad, with your chosen design and colours, and email this to you for approval. This is the time to make any final changes to your pad design or colours, and up to three design changes are included in the custom pad price.

Pad production starts after full payment has been received. It takes approximately 6-8 weeks for your custom pad to be made, and we will send you an email to let you know of the estimated delivery date approximately a week before the pad will arrive to you.

Pad is delivered

When the pad arrives to us, we will check it through thoroughly to make sure it is exactly as you ordered it. We will then post it to you with either Royal Mail or a reputable courier company. You will receive a tracking code for the parcel, so that you know when it will be delivered.
