How should I wash my saddle pad?

I have a Weaver saddle pad/blanket with woven top, memory foam bottom covered in felt. I am selling it, and I need to know how I can wash it down. I'm not sure if I can just hose it down with the memory foam bit.

Does anyone else have memory foam saddle pads? How do you wash it? Thanks!

Looks pretty clean to me, but I will tell you how I clean my show pads that keeps them looking like new. Get a big rubbermaid tub (or you can use your bathtub, messy though), put a tiny bit of woolite or any other mild laundry detergent and fill it with warm water. Submerge the pad, squish it around with your hands but don't fold it or create wrinkles. Take soft bristled scrub brush and scrub the dirty areas. Remove the dirty water and replace it with clean water and rinse your pad until the water is clear. Or if you have a clothesline or some place to hang the pad, drape it over the clothesline and hose it down & let it drip dry. I do this for english white fleece pads, keeps the fleece from matting down, they always look new & fluffy.

It's so clean because its fairly new, but the potential buyer emailed me specifically to make sure it was cleaned. :p -and is that okay to do with memory foam? I guess I've always heard not to get it wet, but I'm not sure how true that is.

Memory foam should be ok done with the method I described, heck I washed a $200 wool blanket that way, turned out fine, like new.

Okay, so I hosed it down in the bathtub. It got a bit cleaner, so that was nice. Now it's absolutely soaking wet, and I didn't even think about drying time! I need to ship this in two days. I read somewhere to sandwich it in a bunch of towels and run it over to squeeze as much water as possible, and then hang it with a bunch of fans pointing at it. How long will it take to dry this way? I know just hanging it will take a while, but I feel like the running over with a bunch of towels will dry it significantly... It's way too big to go in the dryer, too. I definitely should have thought ahead on this. *sigh*

I take mine to the car wash, use horse shampoo and the high pressure sprayer.

I do like waresbear only I step all over it with my bare feet in the tub, like stomping grapes in Italy. Really squishy!
