But since I can't get my hands on it myself, I'd like to hear from those of you who hopefully have. IF there are bad things about this pad, please let me know. I know there might be concerns with making my horse sweat, but I don't ride very long when I do ride so it's not a pad that will be worn for hours on end or at shows or anything like that.
Hope to hear lots of different perspectives on this! Heavy Fleece Barrel Pad: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com
To me, it looks slippery. The "princess fleece" lookes shiny, thus slippery.
And core is "felt". Is that wool? If you just want for looks and a short period of time, then who cares if it makes your horse sweat. But if it's slick, for barrel racing? But then, if it was slick, would they market it for barrel racing? Maybe it just LOOKS slick but actually isn't . I have no eperience with the material. I am so dull about colors. I want FUNCTION, FUNCTION, FUNCTION. WOOL , WOOL, WOOL.
