This saddlecloth offers superior comfort and style both at home and in the dressage arena. The high quality, 100% pure natural sheepskin has been proven to have therapeutic, antibacterial and self-cleaning properties. The sheepskin alleviates pressure points by providing a natural air cushion between the saddle and your horse's back. This not only allows air to circulate but provides shock absorption to protect your horse's sensitive spine. Sheepskin also has natural insulating properties and can absorb up to 30% moisture so your horse will be kept cool in the summer and warm in the winter without the risk of ever being cold or damp. The structure of wool repels dirt so the risk of rubbing is reduced due to the lack of grime building up on the saddlecloth.
