Too many.from a stage where I liked each horse of 11 all to have several of different sorts in their various favourite and ever changing colours...and standard black and white each..there seems to be one of every type per colour.Down to 2 horses now. They make great easy wash dog beds tho.. even for my big bears!

About 30 I think. Mainly le mieux and eskadron. I have some that are for best so dont get used often, some that are every day and some that I use when they might get trashed. I use them once, sometimes twice then wash them. I really hate it when people use filth encrusted pads!

I couldn't agree more with all you say above, especially the filth 👏👍

Three Nuumed half-wool, for when she's at her least muscled.
One padded Harry Hall hi-viz light-up one for when she's middling.
About five thin Shires/Harry Hall/Aldi/etc ones for when she's at her most muscled.
And one random LeMieux that looks terrible on her but I haven't got round to trying to sell. (The lemon looks fab but I hadn't noticed it was trimmed with grey, which doesn't suit a brownish-black horse.)

4 for daily use, 2 white for competitions. I cleaned out all my tack a few years ago and decided that I only wanted tack I actually use regularly.

4 x sheepskin numnahs
1 x sheepskin half pad
i think around 10 lemieux pads in various colours
3 dressage squares
2 poly pad thicker types...

I've got a dark bay who looks fab in anything so i go through matchy matchy phases.. my youngster is bright bay, so i'm also looking forward to kitting him out in some super colours!

I’ve 6 LM 3 for each horse. However I’ve now swapped my old boy into a Griffin Nuumed half lined sheeps wool as he’s lost top-line. I’ve a selection of old nuumeds and a Mattes plus some white saddle pads which I no longer really use but loathe to part with in case I ever do.

If it's LeMieux Citron you have you shouldn't have any trouble selling it, you should get a good price for it on Facebook.

8.
2 are for competition. 1 is sheepskin for when he got some bee stings and was uncomfortable with a regular saddle cloth. 3 are better at wicking so are used mostly in summer and can be taken out of circulation to be washed. There's always two at the yard so there's always a dry one.

I’ve got 5, 3 of which I’ve purchased whilst my horse is out of work! 🙈

I can’t wait to use them on her - one is a gorgeous sky blue woof wear, two are PS of Sweden (also sky blue and lilac) 😍
