This anatomically shaped saddle pad in quilted poly cotton is lined under the back section with medically tanned sheepskin, with a channel down the spine to provide additional clearance. The saddle pad also features a wide sheepskin trim at the withers. The sheepskin 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 saddle pad also has adjustable saddle and girth loops with Velcro and additional reinforcement at the girth loops. The saddle pad fits under general purpose saddles. To preserve the natural properties of the sheepskin, we recommend washing the product at 30°C using a special leather detergent.
