Tradition, Darn it! Sometimes Natural Isn’t Always Better in Equestrian TextilesBecky Shipps
Draper Therapies makes several items composed of both natural and smart fibers. The one that’s making the biggest splash are the saddle pads. The underside of each pad has a Celliant®/Wool blend – wool for wicking and softness, Celliant for a temporary increase in local blood flow and better endurance. They’re the perfect pads for sensitive horses, horses with saddle rubs, or cold/sore backed horses. They’re also easy to clean (a good stiff brush on the inside between washings is all they need) and are ridiculously durable.
