If you are looking for an alternative to synthetic fabrics or leather, the sheepskin saddle pad is a good choice. The fleece naturally creates an cushioning and insulating effect and can therefore be used to balance out the saddle.
If you want to protect your horse's withers or cushion them gently, saddle pads with a sheepskin trim are ideal. These are saddle pads made of the commonly used fabrics or fabric blends, which are lined with sheepskin at the front and/or back or even along the entire hem. This makes them particularly soft and comfortable when resting on your horse's withers.
