Benefit of Sheepskin

These pads use Sheepskin that has over 3,000 fibers per every square inch. Each one has a fluffy, spring-like quality for the ultimate cushioning. This provides protection from rubbing, friction and potential sore spots.

The fibers are also able to collect moisture (sweat) and dissipate it into the air much more quickly than synthetic pads. This keeps your horse drier and cooler while riding.

The material is bacteria resistant and dries quickly and naturally. Washing with water and hanging to dry is a common cleaning method.

Sheepskin Saddle Pad Options

The popular half pads are available in three quilting colors: Blue, Black and White. It is available with Pommel and, or Cantle rolls. All of the designs are low-profile and light-weight for the best in performance and comfort.

Pommel Roll

The Pommel roll is a very common addition to the pad. Its forward position keeps the saddle from sliding forward. When you stop quickly or land after a jump, the momentum of your body and saddle is moving forward. This roll helps keep all that forward movement from sliding up on your hose keeps it centered on your pad.

Below are pictures of the pad with just the Pommel roll in blue, black and white.

Cantle Roll

The addition of the Cantle Roll adds even more saddle security to your ride. The Pommel Roll prevents forward movement while this one is added to prevent rearward movement.

During vigorous riding and when leaving the ground for a jump, your saddle and weight will be forced backward as your horse accelerates. This motion puts pressure on the saddle to slide backward. The roll on the back of the pad helps keep it in place.  When combined with a Pommel Roll, both forward and rearward movements are minimized.

Below are pictures of the half pad with both rolls in blue, black and white:

How to Clean a Sheepskin Saddle Pad

One of the great benefits of riding with sheepskin is the ease of cleaning. The sheepskin itself is made up of tiny fibers that are easily cleaned with either just water or with mild soap.

We don’t recommend using a washing machine with an agitator as it’s not necessary and may damage or deform the pad itself. You may simply hose it down, use a light massage to remove any dirt  or sweat marks and lay out to dry.

Once dry, a slight fluffing will reset the fibers and provide the cushioning and wicking abilities for your next ride.

Cleaning your Saddle Pad

Sheepskin is a resilient material that can be easily cleaned and ready for use quickly. To effectively clean, simply wash with a mild detergent and cold water. To dry, squeeze without twisting and lay out in the sun or on a flat surface. For faster drying, you can use the spin cycle on your washing machine.

Be sure you don’t wash in your washing machine as the agitator may distort the quilting or agitate the sheepskin itself.

Once dry, take a light brush and fluff to restore the resiliency of the sheepskin. This reestablishes the cushioning and wicking abilities of the pad.

Advantages of Sheepskin Saddle Pads

sheepskin saddle pad half size

Sheepskin saddle pads have been used for superior comfort and performance for hundreds of years. This luxurious material is comprised with over 3,000 fibers for every square inch. Each of these tiny little fibers acts as a shock absorber and creates a tremendously soft riding experience.


The same properties that make it soft also create unparalleled wicking. The tiny fibers absorb and then dissipate any accumulate moisture between your horse and the pad. This naturally occurring process keeps your horse cool and allows them to perform in more comfort for longer periods of time. The perfect combination: performance and comfort!


Not only does the sheepskin provide superior cooling and comfort, it also offers protection from pressure points and chaffing. The tiny fibers allow any friction from opposite movement between the saddle and the horse to be absorbed. Keeping any rubbing and chafing from transferring to your horse is the key to high performance and long-distance riding.

Sheepskin does not build up any static or electrical charge. The all-natural material is actually an insulator from the natural friction between your body and the horse.

The material is extremely gentle on skin as it include lanolin and is natural dir and bacteria resistant.

Cleaning your Sheepskin Saddle Pad

To make sure you get the most out of your pad, be sure to follow the recommend care instructions.

Thoroughly dry these high performance pads between your rides. This allows the tiny fibers a chance to ‘relax’, separate and re-establish their wicking and protection properties. Once dry, give the material a light brushing to help separate the individual fibers. This ensures a thick and relaxed cushion for your next ride.

To clean your pad, use cold water and a mild soap made for sheepskin. Some examples of light detergents are baby shampoos by Johnson & Johnson, or Ivory. Make sure to to hand wash the pads and avoid machine washing. The mechanical agitator can be a bit rough on sheepskin and may even agitate the quilting if not properly cared for.

Once clean, do not use a machine dryer. Remove the excess accumulated water with either the spin cycle on your washing machine (after hand washing of course) or letting it dry naturally. Simply set the pad out to dry in the ambient air, do not wring out or compress the sheepskin unnaturally. Do not apply any heat to accelerate the drying process.

You may slightly stretch the pad to help avoid any potential shrinkage if desired. Once dry, simply brush it lightly to separate the small fibers and your ready for another comfortable, high performance ride.
