Why Wool?

Long lasting and durable

Conforms to fit your horse's back

Will not slip

Wool naturally draws moisture away from your horse's back

Wool relieves pressure points as it absorbs shock

For the equestrian, no other material combines comfort, safety, care, and durability like wool.

While synthetics only trap moisture between the fibers, wool absorbs moisture away from your horse and insulates against both cold and heat.

Since moisture absorption and release are gradual, wool is slow to feel damp and does not chill your horse by too rapid drying. In short, wool breathes.

Wool is an amazingly strong fiber composed of protein that grows with a crimped wavy form, giving it excellent properties of elasticity and resilience. This unique structure enables it to mesh with the hair on your horse's back, which prevents the shifting of your pad while riding.

This resilient fiber is long wearing and has the ability to retain shape, drape well, and resist wrinkling due to its natural elasticity. Wool cleans easily and will not soil or stain like synthetics because its unequaled structure withstands dirt penetration.

The felting process increases the strength, durability and shock absorbency of wool fabrics. This process also allows your pad to conform to the shape of your horses back to provide soft cushiony protection, for both horse and rider in the years to come.
