Bareback pads, take 2

Not too long ago I discovered that pre-soldered jump rings DO exist. Learning how to solder has been on the “I-really-need-to-learn-how-to-do-this” list but it’s also one of those things that is so… ugh. I really need to look into it more, but I’m glad I can just purchase the rings I need for the time being.

It got me thinking about re-working my bareback pads. Since I’ve gotten much more comfortable with the machine, sewing them completely is something I’ve been wanting to try. Now the paranoia of buckle tongues falling off their rings is gone too, hooray!

I’m a lot happier with their overall look and construction now.

I’ve been playing around with some patterned fabric I have on hand too:

Also, here are this week’s saddle pads:

So yes! I’ve been busy but it’s a good busy so I’m happy. πŸ™‚

  1. Nichelle, I love these bareback pads. If you add two more handholds on either side of the pommel hold, these would be really cool for a handicapped riding performance setup.
