If you have leathers, condition the bejeezus out of them before & after, maybe try not to wet that part of the pad if you can. Or try that spray on rug spot remover foam, and try it that way.

Well I've done the washing at this point, using the high pressure setting on the showerhead. Drying it it the issue now :p I need to dry it as fast as possible. And thanks a ton everyone, it seems that the most common way is to just hose it down, which worked out :)

My saddle pads usually dry fine outside in the sunshine just in one day. I hang them over something upside down so they sort of drip dry. I have one just like yours. If you ever have a lot of horse hair caked in one I usually dampen them a bit, then lay them flat on the floor and go at them with a rubber horse curry (rubber not metal!). It pulls most of the hair out pretty well then I hang them over something sturdy like a fence and hose them with high pressure nozzle until they rinse clear.
