Sheepskin Saddle Pad, Dressage Cut with Removable Sheepskin
Put the sheepskin where it belongs...directly against you horse's skin. The most traditional material used as a saddle pad is sheepskin with the hide still attached. The main advantage of sheepskin is that it is a resilient material with natural moisture-wicking properties. Sheepskin disperses heat, naturally breathes and eliminates friction and bounce. These same properties are not found in synthetic fleece or fleece bonded to fabric. Only sheepskin still attached to its hide encompasses all these features.
A disadvantage to using a white sheepskin saddle pad is that it is not easy to clean. This pad is the solution to the problem. To wash the white saddle pad: Simply remove the sheepskin panels (these are attached via Velcro®). Machine wash and air dry the cotton twill pad. To wash the sheepskin panels: Simply hand wash using warm water and a wool cleaner (like MELP or Woolite). Wash any spots using a wash cloth. Let air dry. When dry, fluff the sheepskin with a brush.
