my fiance dose this. i would not call it a SHOW blanket but its a navajo blanket. he told me why and it honestly makes sence. he has some fluffy pads he uses for his old horse and they are IMPOSSIBLE to clean. there is no washer that can handle it and it would take hours of housing to even clean it much less days for it to dry. the navajo pad you can chuck in a washer and dryer. easier to clean so it helps keep the thick stuffed pad clean for ALOT longer. he has not had to clean said pad in years. now i would NOT tack like that FOR a show but for daily riding and trail riding i get it and with that pad i used to do it. i now use a neoprene pad WITH that pad so i keep the show blanket on the outside. i only use that much padding with the old guy as "holy withers batman" and he is old so his topline is lacking.
