Crest Ridge Saddle Pad

Journey is going to try out a new pad:

Crest Ridge Saddle Pad product information : "Crest Ridge Saddlery makes their own line of premium wool felt saddle pads. Each is made from F11 grade industrial pressed wool - a 100% natural product that will wick moisture and heat away from your horse keeping you horse more comfortable while reducing saddle movement. These custom made pads feature a cut-out to provide additional clearance over the spine and are only available from Crest Ridge Saddlery. The Crest Ridge Saddle Pad is durable, designed to last for 2,000 hours of hard riding. If you are riding 5-hours a week, this pad will last over 7 years. "
It arrived in the mail yesterday.   It is extremely soft and flexible and has beautiful leather to protect the pad from compression from girthing up.   It is vented along nearly the entire spine with a channel to release heat.  The wool is intended to shape to the individual horse's back in much the same was as a felt had is shaped with steam.  The heat from the horse's back actually custom fits the pad!   The pad is available in black or a lovely dove gray color. It's so very pretty I'm hesitant to put it on her!  Retail for this pad is $180 in the 1/2 inch thickness.  I'll keep you all posted☺after today's ride.

June 26th, 2016:  I still continue to use this Crest Ridge Saddlery pad, and continue to be quite impressed with the nice sweat pattern, but especially how well it vents the heat away from her back.  These are just very great quality saddle pads.
