At last a lambswool pad that washes! Made from a luxurious 22mm depth of merino lambswool, the LeMieux® Merino+ Half Pad marks a milestone in saddle pad innovation and longevity. It is the result of extensive research and testing to find the elusive pure lambswool pad that has all the density and softness of merino lambskin, but can withstand the trials of regular washing and daily wear.

The combination of fine WoolMark accredited Australian merino wool and beautifully engineered fabrics puts Merino+ pads in a class of their own. Many issues experienced with real lambskin pads are associated with the skin getting hard and brittle. With Merino+ pads, the lambswool has been removed from its skin and integrated with a unique backing fabric that can expand and contract while retaining its inbuilt strength.

The fabric aids wicking and moisture control, with each fiber holding up to 30% its weight and thus keeping the surface of the horse’s back cool and dry. Temperature variations are also minimized. The density and consistent depth of the Merino+ wool means it offers a perfect fit. Its dynamic nature also means it moves and remolds to the horse’s shape without adding too much bulk.

The lambswool, dyes and fabric are all tested to human medical standards by a Swiss laboratory, work in harmony with even sensitive skin and are far more stable.

Details include:

  • Cut with a neat front profile that follows the horse’s shoulders.
  • Quilted top.
  • Contoured spine.
  • Front and back trim to help stability with saddle.
  • High-density merino wool panels under the saddle area.
  • Billet straps.

Remove hair, dirt and dried sweat with a stiff brush. Machine wash on a cool/wool cycle or hand wash using wool wash. Straighten/flatten fabric after washing. Air dry. Never tumble dry. Avoid fabric conditioners.
20" spine; 24" drop.
