Plastic under the wool lining

Yesterday I bought a 16 inch westernsaddle of real leather and suede sitting...but why is there under the skirt, wool lining, plastic...It is a nice thick plastic a kind of extra protection...but a little bit weird..I have never see it before..the saddle is very sollid.

Is it directly under the seat? If so, that is the "strainer," part of the seat that gives it it's shape.

Sometimes the trees themselves appear to be plastic (Ralide trees for example).

If it truly is a plastic layer between the wool and the leather skirts, well, that is a new one on me!

I think she is referring to the Ralide tree, or a knockoff.
