#447–T – 32” x 32” x 1”
This pad is designed to assist in fitting a saddle to a horse who experiences bridging across their back because of a lower than typical curve. Did you know a swaybacked horse can be young and underdeveloped, short coupled, or an older horse? The gap between the horse’s back and the saddle is filled in with this pad to create a better fit and level the saddle from front to rear in all voids. The Tacky Too® bottom offers a non-slip material that is ventilated, deceptively tough and durable which helps reduce sore backs and saddle roll.
Available in these durable tops: MicroSuede, Herculon, and Matrix Herculon colors.
Why we love MICROSUEDE:
MicroSuede, a truly a scientific material, has fibers that are many times smaller than human hair. This tightly woven construction gives the saddle pad unparalleled softness and amazing resistance to wear, stains and moisture. When these great features are combined with its ability to absorb vibrant dyes, there is no doubt why this material has been a favorite for years. Choose this tough, luxurious material, and put a little pride in your ride!
Why we love HERCULON:
Herculon is constructed from a fiber created in 1957 that resulted in a Nobel prize for its inventor. At the time, it was considered a miracle breakthrough in the textile industry. Today, it continues to be one of the most widely used performance fibers in the world. It’s lightweight, non-absorbent construction is abrasion, stain, and UV resistant, making it a perfect fit for saddle pad construction. Reinsman is one of the largest producers of top quality saddle pads in the world, and we believe this material perfectly embodies our mission to deliver the very best in quality and performance. More than five decades of proven beauty and performance are at your fingertips!
Why we love MATRIX HERCULON:
Matrix is the latest woven look from the Herculon fiber. Non-absorbent construction is abrasion, stain and sunlight resistant. It utilizes yarns of many different colors to achieve a basket like effect up close while taking on more of a textured solid look from a distance. Once you see this material firsthand, we have no doubt you will feel as we do! It’s substantial, rich, but lightweight and the perfect addition to our long line of great performing tops.
