    OK – – I’m over this! Has anyone ever found a way to get white saddle pads that have been marked up by boots or stirrup leathers white again?

    Anybody? Please?

    Saddle & stirrup leather is dyed and sometimes the dye comes off on saddle pads. The good news is that usually the marks are hidden under the saddle itself for the rider’s legs. The bad news is that I don’t think there is a way to get the stains out. This is a big part of why last year’s white show pads become this year’s schooling pads. Dark colored everyday pads help to hide the stains, and I’ve seen a lot of dressage riders using black pads, which can be especially attractive on light colored horses. The other option is to use a good underpad against the horse and an inexpensive pad on top. The underpad gives you the padding, while turning the less expensive top pad into a schooling pad can be a bit less painful financially.
