So, following on from the thread where we ended up discussing how many saddle cloths we had and I mentioned I was after the new Le Mieux Turquoise pad and the Blueberry pad....

Well this week was payday and guess what arrived in the post today :) :) :)

Can't wait to try them on my boy, maybe take some pics of him modelling them.

The turquoise is particularly gorgeous.

So jealous! How do they look in person?

Absolutely gorgeous :) Got up the yard late tonight so couldn't get Sam to model them but will tomorrow. I also got the grooming glove things and can't wait to try them out on my very hairy, itchy pony. He's going to love it.

It's much greener than the Teal - Hayley from Equissentials Dressage was really helpful and showed me this comparison.

Turquoise is the one on top, peacock green directly under it, and if you look closely you can just about see a bit of Teal sticking out from under the hot pink! :).

I'll do some pics tomorrow. I have the Teal, Peacock and now the Turquoise. The turquoise is greener than the Teal. I can't get over how absolutely gorgeous it is :)

I am very jealous, my pony gets so hot I can't use saddle cloths and have to use the LeMieux numnahs and they only come in boring colours. I've begged them to make ones in lovely bright beautiful colours and they have failed.

I'm now officially sulking.

Such a shame. I did see they do a couple of GP numnahs in the nice colours but they also have the lambskin on them so would not only make your pony hot but they also cost an arm and a leg :(

Oh good lord, am love love loving the top three colours on there! I've got dark lilac hkm which is purple but can't work out if that turquoise is different enough? What's the third colour from the top, the darker green? And even that smidge of teal(?) looks lush. Only problem for me is I like brushing boots not bandages which makes it harder to match.

Shuffles off to check out equissentials...

I know it is not the same at all but the Roma Hi-wither numnahs have really surprised me with their quality and come in a few nice colours! :)

I bought some turquoise bandages from a tack sale but by god I refuse to pay a crazy amount for a matching saddle cloth, brand name or not! I'll do what I've done before and that is dye one if the spare white cloths I have when the weathers a bit warmer!

I'm a Scrooge, I know! :p

Oh and for anyone wondering whether to purchase, the turquoise is even more stunning in real life, it'd be rude not to.. &#128521;

I just bought my tiny white section A the grey set from Horze with orange and white accents, our first real foray in to matchy matchy - it's awesome

I tend to get them from the FB group matchy matchy dressage swap shop, or eBay if I know what I'm looking for.

Me too. I like having lots of matchy stuff, but he rarely wears it at the minute, so I cant justify new prices, but second hand bargains can always be justified :lol:

Where did you all buy your matchy from?

I only buy Le Mieux these days after a few Eskadron ones falling apart and washing badly. I buy directly from Horse Health most of the time as I need CC or Eurojump cut which most places don't seem to stock.

I am thinking about buying the blueberry, but was wondering how close it is to the benniton blue? I am waiting for the bandages to come into stock also :D

I know the blue is more of a royal blue, but is the blueberry just a lighter purpley blue or how does it look in real?

That is inspired! I wonder if equilibrium stretch and flex flatwork boots would take dye, I have always felt life is too short for bandages, and that way I could pick the exact colour I want and not run the risk of someone else on the yard having exactly the same. Genius!
