My husband has been looking for new equipment for his horse, and he needs just about everything. This Kavallerie Horse Anti-Slip Saddle Pad sounds like it would be good, especially for riding in the summer.
It has all those holes for the air to go through, which will help keep the horse from getting too hot. It is made of thick gel material which provides cushion from the saddle.
We did manage to put it on one of the horses to see if it would slip while lunging.
The pad has not yet been used with a rider though. It has been way too wet and cold here. No one wants to actually stay out long enough to ride.
I’ll be posting again in the spring when it is warm enough and dry enough for them to actually ride. We will hopefully try it with a western saddle as well as the English.
