This is why my saddle pad is washable - no cloth or fabric, takes five seconds to brush it off with a brush after a ride. Best $250 I ever spent.
And it doesnt get used on anyone elses horse either

My bo soaks them in a plastic trashcan with laundry soap I think. And then she sprays off the hair clumps and suds with a hose. Idk I think its sorta weird to assign pads to the kids cause every horse might not take the same pads.

LOL they are giving a 4 year old laundry to do?! That is one of the most bizarre things I've ever heard of! RIGHT. Like kids that little are learning anything by giving mommy and daddy extra laundry to do every week. If I was any of those little kid's parents I'd be calling the barn and giving them a piece of my mind.

I'd hate to think of their bill after these pads are continuously washed week after week...I'd imagine they would start to fall apart a lot quicker?

Most likely, except they didn't wash them that consistently before this whole program started

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I thought I washed my saddle pads often and I sure don't do them every week! I have several and I usually save them til I have a couple to wash together. When I was a kid and leased then owned a horse, the barn owner expected me to wash my saddle pad each time I used it. And it was a western one, heavier to wash than the English ones I have now.
Anyway, I can't see this lasting too long, if kids forget to bring them back,lose them or if other parents complain. Otherwise, though, I would probably just wash it by hand as others have said.

So would I.....If I was a parent, I would veto this in a heartbeat. THere are many issues.....allergies for one....I am not allowed to bring ANYTHING horsey into the house. I strip outside when I get home from the barn, and most laundramats do not allow horse stuff. I have a horse, so I have a totally separate laundry for horse stuff. (also works for my sons stinky hockey stuff). I would be super careful using detergent on anything this size I was hand washing, knowing it is difficult to get the soap out....and that can cause skin issues on the horses.

Each HORSE should have their own. There is nothing to say that every kid gets their pad washed every week.....they are looking for problems, IMO.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

I feel like they are trying to take a load off there hands by making the kids clean the saddle pads for them. I mean, you pay them, so they should supply that for you!

People say to hold on tight to what you love-
especially when it's trying to buck you off

So I think it's pretty clear that most people think that's ridiculous but would there be consequences for just saying no?
