These saddle pads provide an excellent close contact shape which assists in stabilisation.. The shape accomodates a wide range of dressage saddles with its neat rolled front and rear. Shorter velcro tabs allow for reduced pressure point issues that arise from seaming placement at the front of the pad. We use these pads at saddle fitting consultations where a horse may require support for rehabilitation and/or muscle development. These pads are our chosen design which strike an excellent balance of design, quality and cost.
Merino wool knitted onto cotton yarn gives you all the wool you need with no skin attached. The natural fibres of wool are less likely to cause skin reactions or allergies. Wool also has the ability to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture, keeping your horse dry and comfortable under saddle. Real wool is still one of the most technically advanced materials in the world and probably the best you can use under a saddle pad.
