<p>Circle Y's Wool Close Contact Pad is designed specifically to fit our close contact skirt saddle shapes. Made from 100% steam-pressed wool - with absolutely NO FILLERS - is the best you can get and ideal for long rides. Steam pressed wool offers excellent shock absorption for tried-and-true back protection. Wool is the only material in the world naturally grown by mammals to regulate their body temperature in all weathers and climates. It decreases moisture on the inside by transferring it to the outside where it can be evaporated. Futurity front wither relief so it will not bind your horse's withers. The contoured back is reinforced with an oil tan spine to provide to create a natural fit against the horse's back and result in less slippage. Durable oil tanned wear leathers resist cracking while the dropped rigging pad design covers and protects your horse against rubbing from the rigging dee.<br /><br />How do you know which length to choose? Take the skirt length of your saddle and add 4” to get the desired length of the pad. For our short-backed equine friends, just add 2”.<br /><br />Will 3/4" wool be thick enough for long rides? If your saddle fits your horse well and you don’t need any type of correctional padding, then we recommend a 3/4” wool felt pad because it's enough protection to adequately protect your horse's back without interfering with proper saddle fit.</p>
