May 18, 2007, Newsletter Issue #225: WOOL & SHEEPSKIN PADS

Tip of the Week

Sheepskin and wool pads offer the benefits of natural fiber.
Wool does not allow significant heat build up making it ideal for use when riding for long periods of time.It is able to absorb up to 40 per cent of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet. This drastically reduces the chance of rubbing or chaffing.Itīs natural fibers deform and reform to their original state during and after use allowing the saddle pad to mould easily to the horseīs back and the saddle.It is very durable and able to withstand regular washing.
Many types are now available, with cotton or original sheepskin backing, in many therapeutic styles.
Wool is initially more expensive than some man made materials.
