Saddle pads and blankets for horses
Modern saddle pads are some of the most versatile equine products available. They are available in styles to suit Western, English, and bareback riding. In addition, each is a long-wearing, durable compliment to any color horse coat. But they also help protect both the horse and rider. In fact, the best saddle works to evenly distribute rider weight across your horse's entire back. This creates better horse spine health, which in turn may lend itself to less leg and hoof injuries because your horse is able to move more naturally. Plus, each pad also helps cushion your ride and keep your horse cool and dry.
