The TuffRider Jumping Saddle Pad is a great match for any close contact saddle. A shaped pad compliments close contact saddles and allows for less friction on the horse's skin. A well padded saddle area cushions the horse's dorsal muscles to maintain comfort, keeping your horse happy all ride long. A gently sloped spine allows for clearance for vertebrae and is especially accommodating to horses with prominent withers. Soft, polyester fabric provides comfort and aids in moisture-wicking to discourage fungal growth. Girth loops stable the pad under the saddle and prevent slippage. Conveniently machine washable, this pad is easily cleaned for worry-free maintenance!
