Thursday Morning Feed from Fleeceworks
If you had 100-plus miles of trail in front of you, what saddle pad would you choose? For U.S. Equestrian Team endurance rider Beverly Gray, the choice is obvious: Fleeceworks.
“Fleeceworks is an incredible pad,” Beverly says of her Merino Wool endurance staple.
Over the span of more than 20 years of participating in the sport of endurance, Beverly has accumulated over 15,000 racing miles (to put that distance in context, the length of the United States is about 3,300 miles). She has represented the United States in international competition, and one of her horses, AA Omner, even has a Breyer Horse model in its likeness.
This week, Bev sent Fleeceworks this picture from a ride through Bryce Canyon National Park.
She writes, “Outlaw and Virgin rides. WOW! The Red Canyon trails are famous for their beauty and magnificent Soaring Sandstone cliffs. It was a fabulous ride! Jolly Sickle and I finished the first day with a 1st place tie with Sue Hedgecock. We rode together all day and mutually decided it was prudent and safe to tie (the finish line was in camp with trailers on both sides). It was great and we had two happy, sound horses to ride another gorgeous day.”
Very cool, Bev! Thanks for sharing!
Fleeceworks carries a full range of saddle pads for distance, endurance, trail and gaited horses. Harnessing both tradition and technology, the pads represent what riders expect from Fleeceworks: 100-percent Merino wool sheepskin is the foundation of all the pads. The cotton-poly blend quilting in breathable yet durable. Removable visco elastic foam inserts provide the ultimate in support for the horse’s back. Each design is anatomically correct following the natural curve of the horse’s topline. Fleeceworks pads represent a new benchmark for both the serious competitor and the pleasure rider.
