Warum Wolle das beste Material für Sattelunterlagen ist
A saddle pad made of wool is good for the back of your Icelandic horse. 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. 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.
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, then 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 wool saddle pad?
Due to its self-cleaning properties, wool 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 degress
You should brush out a saddle pad 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.
