    I always pressure wash my pads. Since I don't have one of my own I just take them to the car wash. Works great on blankets and rugs too and doesn't take but a few minutes to clean.

    I just use the pressure nozzle that I use to wash my horses on the end of a water hose with mine. It works well but takes a bit of time. I am considering getting one of those pressure nozzles that attaches to your standard water hose.

    That depends on what saddle pad you wash. If you wash a sheepskin/fleecework saddle pad, better to do it by hand. I used to have a New Merino Sheepskin half pad and I put it into washing machine. It turned out the shape has changed a little. The fleece lost a little. But later I washed it by hand.

    I keep hair off my good saddle pad by using a cotton quilted "baby pad" shaped like either an english or western pad. They are made of cotton and you use them next to the skin before placing on saddle pad. Then you can just let it dry and brush or shake off the dried hair. Place into a washing machine and dryer. These are cheap and keep most dirt and hair from your good pad and can be found at many larger tack shops. I luv these!!! A friend had one, so I went out & bought the material & made my own.
