Kaikōura Softshell Saddle Pad


The Kaikoura Softshell Saddle Pad is a purpose specific sports saddle pad. It features a technical fabric that's sweat-wicking and soft to the horses' skin to prevent rubs. The inner is a thin layer of anti-fungal padding for comfort, with an ultra absorbent and breathable waffle lining to ensure your horse stays cool and dry.

Anatomically shaped to keep the wither free from pressure and friction and to prevent the saddle from moving, with just the right amount of padding to be comfortable whilst not interfering with the fit. We've also added a handy feature: the saddle strap is easily removed by a D ring so you can choose whether you want to use it or not. Finished with woven Hinterland branded tapes on the spine and girth straps and a rubber logo, no more fiddly embroidery to make for difficult washing!
