Wool and horse hair..

How the heck do you get this off!?!?! My teal and black wool saddle pad has turned completely white from Ke shedding. Is there a trick to getting the hair off with out ruining my saddle pad? Please let me into the trick. I'm going to lose my mind.

I have a felted wool pad for my English saddle. I don't know if your pad is felted or woven. I've had good luck just using the smae nylon bristle brush I use on the horse's coat.

First, I'd wait until shedding season is done. There is nothing worse than going to a ton of work to clean something, only to have it get dirty/hairy again 2 seconds later.

Then, I've had luck laying the pad on the ground, and using a really really stiff brush (one of those boar bristle kinds, I think...the kind you want nowhere near your skin, haha) to brush the hair off. It does take a while but it will do the trick.

Good luck! My horse is a gray too and those white hairs show up on EVERYTHING. Such a pain.

Its woven and that why I'm worried about messing it up. Its suppose to be my new show pad. The reason its a big deal to me is because it's reversible.

Lets see if this code will work. If it does its the lime and electric one. I figured it would be a great way to save on buying a million show pads. But I can't if its covered in hair. Lol.

I think you can just throw those in the washing machine? That's what I've done with mine, at least!

I've had luck by dampening the pad with a spray bottle. You are dampening just the surface, then with a damp rag, folded into a pad, start wiping at the far edge and working it toward me. Lots of rinsing. The hair will roll into little "snakes" which are easy to remove. If you have a rubber curry with the needle point tips groom the pad first to remove the excess. I want a purple one. Perfect with my black horse and black saddle.

Lol if you buy the purple one then you get the pink one too. Its reversible and amazing . I will try dampening it. I'd still be way to afraid to wash it.
