Woven Wool vs Pressed Felt~ best option?
I'm looking at having a new saddle pad made for my hard to fit gelding. I'm primarily riding right now in a Diamond Wool pad with pockets for shims.
Options for my new pad include a tightly woven NZ Wool Navajo pad or a pressed felt pad, both with felt inserts to compensate for fit issues with my horse's back (high wither and a dippy back). Which option do you feel has the best sweat wicking capabilities? Benefits over one or the other? Or am I comparing apples to apples here?
I do a lot of heavy trail riding in the hills. I'd like to give my boy the best option for staying as comfortable as possible with the materials used. Anyone have any opinions they'd like to share?
Thanks so much!
