Elegant woolen saddle pad in Dressage model
An elegant and comfortable saddle pad with fantastic features. The design and quality attract the eye and make your horse shine a little extra, quite naturally. We have used high quality European woolen fabrics for this saddle pad to give the right feel for both of you. Both saddle girth straps and D-ring straps are equipped with velcro so you can easily detach and shake it off between each use. This means both that the product has the opportunity to stay fresh for a long time without washing and increases the total lifespan. Thanks to the wool's properties, the saddle pad functions as both heat-regulating and moisture-absorbing, with a really nice feeling against the horse's back during the entire riding session. It also keeps the back muscles naturally warm on cold days, and when you walk off the horse, etc.
Through its natural heat-regulating function, the saddle pad can be used in all seasons. Please read more about all the good properties of wool HERE.

Daily care: Shake and let hang airy after each use to reduce the need for washing. The wool has self-cleaning properties. Brush with a soft brush over areas with visible dirt or to remove horse hair.
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, dog blankets, 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 and piping first). The product is also biodegradable.
