Harness pad for lunging
A harness pad with fantastic properties for the lunging girth or harness. The pad is made of 100% wool and is made in Sweden. We have used high-quality European woolen fabrics for this pad. Thanks to the wool's properties, the pad functions as both heat regulating and moisture absorbent, with a really nice feeling for the horse. Designed after the horse's back. Double fasteners on each side keep the mat in place. Total length at the back edge is 110 centimeters.
Through its natural heat-regulating function, the lunging pad can be used in all seasons. Easy to keep clean thanks to the wool's self-cleaning properties. Please read more about all the good properties of wool HERE.

Washing: Hand wash max 30°C, Machine wash in hand wash/wool program max 30°C and max 600 rpm in centrifugation. Stretch and shape the fabric after washing to preserve original shape. Do NOT tumble dry. Can shrink approx. 3-4% in washing.
Ironing: The product can withstand being pressed/ironed and then also gets a nicer surface. DO NOT iron directly on the fabric, but always place a moistened cotton/linen cloth between the product and the iron.
The wool fibers in the padding consist of different types of structure and can creep up through the outer fabric after a while. We have tried to find material choices that reduce the risk, but with natural materials it cannot be completely avoided. However, the function is not affected, only the appearance. Carefully cut off the fibers that stick out and the product will look less "shaggy".
The color can be experienced differently in real life compared to the web depending on the color settings on the computer. Most color variants stand up well in sunlight, but some fading may occur (mainly on darker colours).
The product should primarily be reused or repaired. It is the most climate-smart. Turn it into, for example, leg pads, seat mats, pot holders... The product can also be recycled as woolen textiles and recreated into new woolen products because it is free from mixing (cut off Velcro first). The product is also biodegradable.
