A premium quality finished anatomically shaped universal half pad made with an original Merino sheepskin, with 2 large and 6 small pockets including felt inserts. The wool is antibacterial, therapeutic, regulates heat and moisture, improves pressure distribution and prevents abrasion. The pad is made from quilted cotton, with a full underside of high-quality genuine Merino sheepskin. On both sides of the spine there are 2 large and 3 small pockets on the top for inserts, including all with felt inserts. Of course, a different type of insert can be chosen as required. Equipped with 6 top insert compartments to improve a balanced position of the saddle or for additional pressure distribution.
High-quality Merino wool is technically probably still one of the most advanced materials in the world. Because the complete fur sheepskin is used instead of shaved and woven wool, the benefits of this natural material are optimally exploited. That is why we recommend that you use it directly on the horse's back. All EDIX Merino pads are fitted with a new design free spinal canal of short shaved fur, developed in a way to reduce pressure points and to provide optimal protection for your horse's spine. Furthermore, the Merino fur skin has a large surface so that the panels of the saddle rest completely on it. As a result, the natural fibres effectively distribute the perspiration to the outside, while at the same time pressure is distributed and shocks are absorbed. The EDIX Merino half pad is suitable for several brands of treeless as well as traditional tree saddles.
The half pad is made of cotton and polyester fabric, filled with foam and treated with careful quilting. It gives the horse a space for the spine. Thanks to the pockets that can be filled, the half pad can be used to adjust the position of the saddle on the horse, and will provide additional protection against shocks and improve pressure distribution.
