The fundamental purpose of horse saddle pads is to provide a thin layer of cushioning between the horse’s back and its saddle. A saddle pad protects against friction caused by the saddle rubbing against the horse, and it helps protect the saddle by absorbing some of the horse’s perspiration. The exterior of many saddle pads is typically made of a durable, washable fabric blend, such as cotton with polyester fibers, quilted over a thin layer of poly fill. Depending on the materials used to construct the saddle pad and its specific design features, it can offer much more functionality as well. A saddle pad made from moisture-wicking materials, such as natural sheepskin, bamboo blends or high-tech fabrics, can draw perspiration away from the horse to help prevent back muscles from overheating.
