There are lots of reasons why your horse needs a little care to make sure he’s comfortable. A badly fitting bit will rub his mouth, badly fitted shoes can cause him to become lame, badly fitted rugs for the field will rub, fall off and possibly get tangled in his feet, leading to serious injury. Luckily, you can avoid these scenarios when you’re riding, simply by making sure his tack is the correct fit – and that you have adequate cushioning between saddle and his back.
The Space saddle cloth from HKM has a number of impressive features. It has Velcro keepers to ensure it stays firmly on the stirrup leather, it’s non-slip and shock absorbing. So even if you’re flying around the 2’9” jumping course, this saddle pad will prevent any sudden thumping weight on his back (even the very best of us get our jumping position slightly off sometimes!) and you won’t have to worry about it slipping back and leaving his withers unprotected. His pressure points will be protected, and its fast moisture absorption means that even if he gets hot and sweaty, he will still stay comfortable. And as for after the ride, you can simply pop it into the washing machine on a 30 degree cycle and it will come out fresh as a daisy. All in all, this saddle cloth is a great purchase.
