Reinsman’s Orthopedic Felt Pad is handcrafted with the highest grade felt available to provide pure comfort against the horse. Orthopedic felt fibers are smaller in diameter which allows them to be more durable and have a consistency that resembles the luxurious softness of cashmere.
Wool felt provides excellent shock protection and naturally wicks away more moisture, releases heat build-up, breathes for a cooler ride, and is quick drying after use. The wool conforms to the horse’s back resulting in less slippage. The contour shape provides a better fit for horses with more pronounced withers or more sway to their back and allows the saddle to fit properly.
We use heavy oiled grain out leathers which result in less cracking and drying out. It’s ideal for all-around high-performance use and ranch use.
Made with a Nitro-Gel insert along the saddle bar area for added shock protection and comfort. Nitro-Gel won’t ever pop, freeze, or break down, and can’t freeze or melt.
