MERINO STREAMLINE CLOSE CONTACT 1/2 SQUARE
The NEW 1/2 square design offers all the same technical features as our traditional Close Contact cut, but with a more low profile "streamlined" design. Now with a luxury merino rolled edge you're able to achieve the look of a pad and half pad combination whilst reducing the bulk under saddle.
Part of the Streamline family, now with luxurious 100% natural Australian Merino Lambswool. Combined wit our “super soft” suede binding, Designo faux leather piping, wither and girth zone & adjustable push button D-Ring fasteners. Designed with ease of use in mind without compromising the effectiveness of our 3Spine System technology.
Our unique elevated wither and lumbar pattern allows these technically advanced saddle pads to be used with or without our 3Spine system. With these functional, stylish and high quality pads we’ve changed the rules on tradition!
The spine free cut out allows the pad to conform anatomically around the horse, whilst at the same time reducing bulk and increasing ventilation throughout the gullet.
With industrial strength velcro sewn directly onto the spine of the saddle pad its never been simpler to achieve unrivalled levels of comfort & freedom under saddle. The low profile "streamline" design minimises movement between the saddle and saddle pad, whilst locking the spine into the gullet of the saddle. This considerably reduces heat, friction and pressure throughout this vulnerable area.
MERINO 1/2 LINED INFO
These Close Contact pads are designed for more forward cut jumping saddles with a stream lined shape to minimise heat build up and weight. The benefit being when used with our unique 3Spine system minimal movement and even pressure distribution under saddle. There's nothing better for a horses back than natural wool - it promotes blood circulation, is fully breathable, and helps to maintain optimum temperature in summer and winter. It regulates humidity, controlling the breeding of bacteria and viruses and prevents bruising, scarring, chaffing and pressure sores.
Please note this listing is for the saddle pad only. The 3Spine Velcro Saddle Component is sold separately.
Always wash carefully on a wool cycle (max 30 degrees), or by hand, with a wool wash or non-biological powder or liquid these pads will last for years. Always air dry. DO NOT tumble dry or place directly on a heat source.
COOL WHITE INFO
Please note that to allow for optimum washing and stain removal all white saddle pad have a poly-cotton binding rather than suede. Due to the fact that generally white pads are used for competition we felt that keeping them looking smart for longer was more important!
