This anatomically shaped half pad in quilted polycotton is lined on the bottom with medically tanned sheepskin, with a channel down the spine to provide additional clearance. On top, the half pad features shock absorbing neoprene gel pads. Thanks to the anti-slip properties of the neoprene, the pads ensure that the saddle sits securely. In addition, the combination of sheepskin and neoprene gel distributes the weight of saddle and rider very evenly across the horse's back. This reduces the risk of pressure on the spine and withers. Medically tanned sheepskins prevent excessive heat accumulation and are also hygienic, sweat resistant and antibacterial. Especially suitable for horses with sensitive skin. The pad fits under all saddles and can be used directly on the horse’s back or between saddle and saddle pad. To preserve the natural properties of the sheepskin, we recommend washing the product at 30°C using a special leather detergent.
