Hah. Timely question.

We went to the supermarket the other night and they
had el-cheapo fleece blankets - 2 for $10, so I bought
5 :)

(One can never not have enough fleece blankies - I
figure worst case scenario, they can double as coolers
at VCs. Can't beat $5 for a fleece cooler, even if it
is only 50" x 60")

Any-hoo, I was going to make a couple of the blankies
into rump rugs, but I'm not sure how I'm going to do it.

They will be pretty basic - just fleece rump rugs, not
waterproof. I'm guessing I'll attach velcro straps to
them, so they can be rolled up and snugged down behind
the saddle when not in use.

The part I haven't figured out yet is how I'm going to
*attach* them to the saddle.

I've seen some where the rump rug has a long "tongue" of
fabric on the front which sandwiches between the top of
your saddle pad and under your saddle (so it is held in
place by the weight of the saddle). Not a bad idea...but
then I wonder how faffy that is when you're taking the
saddle on and off. I'm thinking after a few times I might
rather just have it attached to the back of the saddle,
ready to unfurl when needed.

Thoughts?
