Oh Okay, someone told me that Toklat no longer made Coolback pads which we used to have a couple until they wore out. I will have to look into the Woolbacks! If they are like the Coolbacks but wool, I am sold:)
I don't know ANYTHING about endurance riding, but we would ride horses 10+ hours on the ranches and the Coolbacks were nice pads. We really liked them over the usual fleece with a wool topper blanket. I would invest in a Wool back to test it out. We try to be careful about not burning a horses back with the heat build up, which is why we like wool pads too because they breathe.
I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.
