This Square saddle pad is lined with real wool panels on the contact area between the saddle and the horse's back.
This piece of riding equipment is made with thick and compact fleece. The pure natural wool ensures an ideal weight distribution, decreases the pressure on the horse's back and reduces rubbing on its skin. In addition, natural wool immediately absorbs sweat 8x faster than synthetic fiber due to a constant flow of air circulating between the fibers of the wool. Because it provides good thermal regulation, it can be used for both summer and winter seasons.
Spinefree: In order to avoid any painful or uncomfortable pressure on the wither and the spine of the horse, there is no wool along this area.
The top of this pad is made of very tightly woven cotton and stitched with the infamous Mattes pattern.
- It is recommended to wash your Mattes material with Mattes Melp Soap, approximately every 3 weeks. When the material is used more regularly it should be washed 3-4 times per week. The product is only guaranteed with this proper maintenance.
ADVICE FOR CHOOSING THE COLOR:
The dark or bright colored wools can rub off on lighter fabrics as well as light colored horses and leathers. For this reason, we recommend that you do not combine light colored fabrics and bindings with dark or bright wool.
