"Merlot" Burgundy Suede Jump Pad
The Merlot saddle pad is a beautiful dark red that suits all colours of horses. Made from a special fabric designed to mimic the look and feel of suede, it is oh so soft on top and lined with 100% black cotton for breathability and sweat absorption.
-Extra length D-Ring straps designed to attach to the D-Rings of saddles even when most types of half pads are used.
-Shock absorbing comfort foam fill for an added layer of protection to your horse's back.
-Extra strength padding in the girth strap area to prolong the life of the pad.
-Metallic silver cord and logo for contrast.
-Extra high wither clearance.
Our saddle pads fit fairly true to size. If you usually purchase saddle pads from brands that only make sizes Pony and Full then you will likely find our saddle pads to be a similar fit to those. If you usually purchase saddle pads from brands that make sizes Pony, Cob, and Full then you will likely find our Full size pads to be slightly smaller than their Full size, and our Pony size pads to be slightly large than their Pony size – this is because we do not make a Cob size.
If you have a pony 12hh-14hh choose Pony size. If you have a horse over 15hh choose Full size. If you have a 14hh-15hh choose Pony size for saddles 16.5” and under, or Full size for saddles over 16.5”. We do have a lot of customers who use our Pony size pads on ponies 11-11.3hh however some people have found the pads to be a bit too large for ponies that size (they are still perfectly useable, they just may look a little large).
Due to the shape of the Jump saddle pads they are longer in length (along the horse’s spine) than a GP pad and are best suited to ponies 13hh and up. We recommend our GP and dressage cut pads for 12-13hh ponies and custom made for ponies below that height. Breed and build dependent.
