Felt pads

Bobbie Day

Does anyone know where I could get some felt pads for Desi’s boots?
i got a pair from equine fusion but lost them!
they really help with the sweat and odor but I would like to buy bigger pieces for extras.
all I can find is either smaller ones for furniture or by the yard which is pretty costly.
any ideas would be appreciated.
you wouldn’t think it would be that hard to find

You could buy a western felt saddle pad and cut any size you need. They’re relatively inexpensive and can sometimes find used ones for sale that would be even cheaper.

Same suggestion. Look for felt saddle pad liner.

Hi Bobbie,

You can buy regular felt and cut your own - https://www.cramersportsmed.com/felt-variety-pack

Or you could buy the hoof sock replacement ones - https://www.theconnectedrider.com/hoofcare/the-hoof-sock-felt-replacement-pad-m/

Or check Michael's Crafts although they sell much thinner pieces for crafting so you'd probably have to do a bit of gluing to get the thickness you want.



Look at tack stores/on line, for felt saddle pads. then cut to size

In addition to all the other good ideas, you can buy felt carpet padding at places like Home Depot in the flooring section. It comes in different thicknesses and can be purchased by the foot/yard.

What about a felt saddle pad liner and cut your own?  They are 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch thick.  Tractor supply has a Cashel 1/4 in. thick for 20.00.  Also, I found wool felt pads for rugs in 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 inch thickness.  One webside is www (dot) RugpadUSA.  a 4' x 4' was 34.95 plus shipping.

I cut up an old felt saddle pad.

I purchase a felt western saddle pad of the desired thickness and cut my own pads from it.
