Re: [RC] cool back pad - Beth Leggieri

Another trick to keeping the fleece pads from slipping is to cut a slit in the front on either side and run some sort of ties through  the slits that affixes to your front D-rings.  That must take courage, I think!  (Have never done that personally, but I have seen pix of this method--I think on one of Karen Chaton's numerous very helpful links.)

Years ago when I rode in fleece pads, I had this problem. What I did to solve it was to make a "roll" out of another piece of fleece, stuff it with polyester batting, and sew it onto the top of the pad right on the edge..hint: dental floss works great for sewing with a big needle.

Both of these items should be available at any fabric store, and will cost you very little.
