Surgery on the Skito

I'm trying to get Journey's tack together.  Since we are going back to a western styled saddle I really prefer a Skito pad.  I have an old one which is still pretty nice, but then I had the new one cut to fit an English dressage style saddle.  The new one has the ultra nice wool back on it.  A new one these days is $220  or more.  So I took a deep breath, got out my old western pad, and modified the shape of the very expensive Skito with a pair of scissors.  I used a seam ripper to pull loose the binding, but off most of the flap, and voila' , almost an endurance pad.
