Tammy West-White on Saddle Pads
Hi, I am Tammy West-White, and I want to talk to you today about various saddle pads and their benefits. Here’s a breakdown of some popular styles and their benefits:
Needle Punched Wool Saddle Pads
- Firm, durable pads, with a tighter woven wool, but still allows for good airflow
F11 Grade Pressed Wool Saddle Pads
- Soft, breathable pads, with more flexibility and bend, but still gives good support throughout the spine. Nice for horses with big shoulders because of the flexibility it allows the horses shoulders to move more freely.
Saddle Pads w/ Build Ups/Inserts
- Most inserts are made of a closed cell foam/neoprene material. Horses with smaller shoulders who need extra support may benefit from this type of pad. The extra insert(s) can help your saddle sit up a little higher, and help to keep your saddle off the horse’s withers. It helps to distribute even pressure along your horses back and keep the pressure of your horse’s spine.
Fleece Lined Saddle Pads
- Great for horses with sensitive backs. Helps with dry spots, as well as wicking away sweat to allow the horse’s back to breathe and stay cool.
