Keep your saddle pad in top shape
While hanging saddle pads upside down to dry and air out may keep your tack room from getting stinky, it does not do much for the shape of your pad. Your saddle pad needs to break-in and conform to the shape of your horse’s back. If you leave it to dry upside down, the pad is taking the opposite shape of how it will sit on the horse’s back. I use a saddle pad rack that will hold the pad in its ‘using’ shape and allow air to circulate underneath it. This way, the pad will keep its shape and be more comfortable for your horse.
