I’ve definitely never loved a pad more than I love my Fleeceworks half pad. The quality and durability has been outstanding. Their website sums up the company’s products quite simply: Fleeceworks products – where minimum bulk assures maximum performance through the combination of technology and natural fibers.
Did you know? Each material that is used in our (Fleeceworks) pads was selected because it is the best choice for each particular job. Our genuine Australian sheepskin comes from older, wool producing sheep. Unlike lambskin, whose wool is very thick and tends to be coarse, the sheepskins from older sheep are dense, strong and very soft. This type of wool allows us to shear the wool down to about 1” length, which is the optimum length to protect against pressure points, deliver an effective thermal balancing layer and yet retain the fit and contact of your saddle.
The two major benefits of real sheepskin are its ability to prevent pressure points and to deliver vital thermal balance. Genuine sheepskin has long been valued in the medical field. Bedridden and wheelchair bound patients depend on it for its ability to prevent pressure points. Even a well-fitted saddle can cause pressure due to the points of the tree and stirrup bars bearing weight over the shoulders. Fleeceworks pads are carefully constructed to provide extra protection in these vulnerable areas.
Come in to see (and feel!) our fabulous Fleeceworks pads. While we have a small variety of what the company has to offer, we are more than happy to discuss other options and special orders are always welcome.
