For many horse people, winter is an opportunity to rest and reboot after a long competition season. For others, winter just means extra time to train and get ahead!
Yesterday, Fleeceworks posted this photo on its Facebook page of endurance rider Beverly Gray braving the winter chill to get in a conditioning ride.
We see that Fleeceworks pad peeking out from your quarter sheet, Beverly!
“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.
Here’s Beverly riding in her Fleeceworks pad on the opposite side of the calendar year, proof that Fleeceworks is truly a pad for all seasons!
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. All the pads have the ability to use either the memory foam shims or the new wool shims. 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.
Check out the full line of pads and accessories on the Fleeceworks website.
Go Fleeceworks, and Go Riding!
