This is our excellent “Special” saddle pad that is probably the best saddle pad from the perspective of the rider (while the “Physio” is best for the horse). It was specially designed for our Barefoot saddles, in different shapes and colours for different saddle models.
They are contoured to accommodate the horse’s withers and have a split over the wither area to avoid rubbing and compression. Anatomically formed, removable fillings generate good spinal clearance and guarantee ideal pressure absorption and distribution. Even more comfort and cushioning is achieved by the pure wool underside which provides temperature regulation and moisture absorption. There is no fleece lining right over the spine to provide additional clearance for the spine and spinous processes.
All our saddle pads have poly-cotton padding inside and the top layer is made of tough and durable quilted cotton. All pads come with velcro straps to attach to the saddles’ D-rings.
The “Special” pad can be machine washed at 30 degrees (delicate cycle) with detergent wool.
