Why Do I Use A Saddle Pad?

  • For the well-being of the horse. A good Saddle Pad is sweat-wicking and will keep your horse's back dry after exercise. Because a sweaty saddle position after riding is quickly the cause of cooling and thus tension in the back muscles
  • To protect the saddle from sweat and dirt
  • Your horse is well and correctly muscled
  • With a well-fitting saddle, the saddle pad helps the saddle pads to distribute pressure peaks.

Why Wool Is The Best Material For Saddle Pads

A wool saddle pad is good for your Icelandic horse's back. Wool can simply absorb an incredible amount of sweat - up to 30% of its own weight - and thus ensures a dry saddle area, which in turn cannot cool down. On the other hand, it never feels cold and clammy, you can put it on the horse when it is wet. If it doesn't dry properly in winter or you get caught in the rain, that's no problem at all.

In summer, wool also protects against overheating under the saddle because it always maintains a neutral temperature and is extremely breathable. It ensures a healthy microclimate between the saddle and the horse.

This makes the natural material ideal for Icelanders with sensitive backs. Wool activates blood circulation and has a relaxing effect on muscles and connective tissue.

How Do I Care For A Woolen Saddle Pad?

Due to its self-cleaning properties, it rarely needs to be washed. Depending on the intensity of use, every one to three months. This can be done on a wool cycle at a max. 30 Grad.

You should brush out a saddlecloth made of wool after every ride. It dries best if you take it out from under the saddle and place it on the saddle with the wet side facing up.

Does The Sportsfreund Saddle Pad Fit Under My Saddle?

We can answer this question with yes, as long as it is the shape of a modern dressage saddle/Icelandic horse saddle. Up to 18" inches. Overall, we have measured the shape rather generously, so that the saddlecloth cannot be too small. And so that you can see something of the beautiful material.
