I don't know because I don't use neoprene pads. I used to ride team roping horses and it was always a big no no to put a felt pad(not pure wool pad) next to skin. Always told to put a pure wool blanket underneath. A pure wool pad was allowed to be next to skin. The wool will absorb the sweat as well.
This may be just me but I try not to overheat a horses back. I like wool pads and blankets that breathe. When I ride hard and get a chance to take a break, we always on a tough day once get cows turned loose, we unsaddled and watered horses(if water was available) before heading back to the barn or trailer.
I am sure it s just one of those things that just got pounded in my head at a young age, but it had stuck. :) Posted via Mobile Device
