These saddle cloths have been making a name for themselves here at Snowy Mountain Outdoor Centre for well over a decade. The Saddle Cloths are delightfully comfortable for the horse and are very long-wearing. They are made from a Kersey wool outer which is filled with all-natural fibres. This ensures greater absorption of sweat and aids in keeping the horse’s back irritation-free.
Double thickness saddlecloths are available in medium and large sizes for horses with high withers that need extra padding under the saddle for comfort.
Just take a moment to think of the damage which could be caused to the horse if sweat was not absorbed by the saddle cloth. Sweat leaves the horse’s body as a heated liquid and if not absorbed by the saddle cloth, sits on the horse as a cold liquid. For every action, there is a reaction. Without absorption of the sweat, the horse runs a greater risk of developing a sore back, purely from the irritating discomfort. Worse still, the back can develop blistering or there could be involvement under the skin. Do you ever wonder why a horse suddenly becomes cold-backed, or starts misbehaving or bucking for no apparent reason? Often the answer is as simple as a synthetic saddle cloth you may have been using.
