Savvy Shopper Guide for English Saddle Pads
English saddle pads are used to provide a lightweight cushioning layer between a saddle and the horse's back. Horse saddle pads protect against any friction that might be caused by a saddle rubbing against a horse, and thy also help to protect a saddle by soaking up a portion of the horse's sweat. The outer layer of many saddle pads is usually constructed of a strong, washable blend of fabrics, most often cotton mixed with some type of polyester fiber, which has been quilted over a lighter layer of polyester fill. We have a variety of pads for all of your schooling or showing needs, ranging from the most basic baby pads to larger therapeutic gel pads.
