EDIX® Merino Wool 8 Pocket Pad
EDIX uni 8-pocket Merino sheepskin Western pad. A premium quality finished anatomically shaped universal Western pad made with an real Merino sheepskin, with 2 large and 6 small pockets including felt inserts.
The wool is anti-bacterial, 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, all with felt inserts included: 2 1 cm long felt shims and 3 x 5 mm felt shims per pocket. 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.
The wear leather area is covered in a tough nylon reinforcement which provides wear prevention.
High-quality Merino sheepskin is technically still one of the most advanced saddle pad materials in the world. Because the complete sheepskin is used instead of shaved and woven wool, the benefits of this natural material are optimally available. 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 clearance of short shaved fleece, developed in a way to reduce pressure points and to provide optimal protection for your horse's spine. Furthermore, the Merino sheepskin 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.
