    That's how I do it, except I use a stiff brush to get as much of the shed hair off as I can.

    Definitelty do the brushing outside.........

    For english pads, I typically just throw them in the wash. If they are super awful, I may hand wash them first and then tie them in a pillow case before putting them in.

    Does that really help witht the hair?

    Yes, definitely do the brushing and shaking off outside!!

    It also helps to just give them a quick brush off and shake out after every ride, that way the hair doesn't build up on them too much, it only takes a minute or two.

    I second the car wash idea. It works great at the deep down sweaty dirt.

    I use one of those cheap plastic brushes and get some hair off, and then go at the blanket with the pressure washer. I do the same with my cinches.

    I usually use a flick brush to get the majority of hair off, then throw them in a cold water wash cycle when hubbys not around. This reminds me Im down to one clean pad!

    Lol, yeah they looked at me funny when I first went in there. I asked if it was okay and they had no problem, said they have seen way worse! I didn't even want to ask.

    I use a lint roller beforehand and then throw it in the wash.

    I don't know why, but it always comes out sparkling clean when I just use fabric softener and put it on extra rinse (so none of that crap gets on my horse)

    Me and white go well together.. got a white horse.. a white pad...

    But I have lint rolled my entire navy cooler as well before popping it in the washing machine.
