Check out this “Dressage Meets Cowboy” freestyle from the 2009 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair… which horse would you rather be riding?
Yeah, they both look pretty fun!
Fleeceworks is a big fan of both riding styles. Although the company may be better known for its English pads…
…they now also offer a Western-style Square Wool Underpad, made of 100% merino wool and designed so that Navajo blankets can be used over allowing for that custom look. The pad offers all the thermal balancing of sheepskin with easier care. Great for training and short to medium distances. 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. Truly, the pads represent a new benchmark for both the serious competitor and the pleasure rider.
Go Fleeceworks, and Go Riding!
