Fleeceworks has sent the Young Riders packing to Kentucky equipped with saddle pads for multiple phases. For the dressage phase, riders will use the Fleeceworks Dressage Squarepad with Perfect Balance Technology. A big advantage of these pads is that they can be fitted with removable shims so that the pad can optimize saddle fit as your horse changes shape throughout a competition season. As mentioned before, nothing can beat a perfectly fitted saddle, but for the times when you need a little help these pads are ideal.
For the jumping phases, the riders will be using shaped pads with the same Perfect Balance Technology. Whether your running cross country or soaring over stadium fences, this pad will ensure the most comfort for your horse’s back and help with faster cool-down periods once the saddle is removed.
From the Fleeceworks website:
When faced with issues related to saddle fit or conformation Fleeceworks Perfect Balance pad technology remains the prefered choice. The combination of pure Australian Sheepskin and the option of multiple types of inserts makes the perfect balance pad an essential piece of equipment in top barns.
