Cleaning Saddle Pads
Here’s a quick tip for keeping your saddle pads clean and comfortable for your horse. Many people prefer to use a very thin “sweat pad” underneath the regular pad, made of an easily washable and absorbent material that absorbs the sweat and keeps your pad clean. If you use a thicker pad that is hard to wash in a machine, you can periodically curry it with a metal curry comb to remove sweat and hair or you can take it to the car wash and hang it where you would normally hang your car mats to give a high-pressure wash. Make sure to rinse it very well and leave plenty of time for it to dry thoroughly in the sun.
