This pad has a specially designed foam/felt combo made just for the
Freeform saddles. the new combo is working great with all the riders
I've set up this way. Rusty Toth finished the Tevis, vetting through
with all A's on Far's back. and believe me, this was a tough horse to
fit. SKITO orthopedic saddle pads are built to suit your
specific saddle fitting needs.
DRYBACK® pads are constructed to release heat and
moisture from the large back muscle into the atmosphere. Air flows between the saddle and saddle
pad thanks to the addition of 3M™ Nomad™ matting (DRYBACK®) to the top of the
saddle pad. In the past the heat
and moisture stopped in the top layer of the saddle pad because the saddle
became an obstacle to transpiration.
The addition of Nomad™ matting (DRYBACK®)
enables air to flow under the saddle to evaporate the moisture and dissipate
the heat normally trapped against the saddle. Simply put, the exclusive SKITO wool efficiently wicks the
heat-laden perspiration to the open cell foam insert, which acts as a dense
sponge pulling moisture and heat away from the animal to the surface of the
Foam density is a key in regards to comfort, support and
durability. SKITO has developed a
laminated foam - felt configuration to provide better support and comfort for you and
your equine partner. For the
Treeless Saddle advocate, all of our foam inserts are beveled to eliminate
pressure points and allow your leg to lay closer to the animal.
We have designed two pommel ties so you
may attach your pad securely to your saddle to create an air channel down the spine. Working with Tom at Skito and Bill Wood a wonderful saddle fitter, together we have come up with a great laminated foam/felt insert for the specially designed to work with the Freeform saddle.
