Saddle Pad Designed for A-Circuit Saddles

Horse Tack - Saddle Pads

Fleeceworks, the company that brings you high quality Australian Merino sheepskin saddle pads and accessories, is taking the heat off the A-circuit saddle market with their new pad, the Showhunter.

Combining a distinctive cut customized to the more refined shape that’s popular with many of the top A-circuit saddle brands, with an even inch of sheared down Merino sheepskin around the flap and seat for the coveted classic Hunter look, the Showhunter pad offers a fit and ultra-clean look that’s so important to the Hunters.

But this pad isn’t just “A-circuit pretty”; it has an important job to do as well, one that makes it unique in today’s Hunter market. Fleeceworks has incorporated their popular Perfect BalanceTM system into the Showhunter which allows a rider to fine tune the pad for the ultimate saddle fit. The Perfect Balance system uses strategically placed inserts made from visco elastic foam to tactically support the ideal saddle balance. All inserts are removable and sit in pockets in the interior of the pad, making them completely invisible from the outside. And like all Fleeceworks™ saddle pads, the Showhunter features bi-level sheepskin for an ideal bulk/benefit ratio; effectively eliminating needless bulk, giving the rider maximum contact, and relieving pressure points while providing superior heat and moisture management that’s so critical for performance horses. The Fleeceworks Showhunter pad retails for $164.00 and can be found at tack shops nationwide.

At the heart of everything Fleeceworks does is the love for their horses and passion for their sport. Excess heat and moisture and imperfect saddle fit are the most common causes of back problems encountered in sport horses. Fleeceworks mission is to design and produce quality products that impart therapeutic benefits paramount to the continuous health and performance of all horses. Fleeceworks products are a staple in the schooling and showing equipment of many top riders and Olympians, including Amy Tryon, Stuart Black, Kevin Babington, Joie Gatlin, Molly Tall, Leslie Reid and High School Master Joao Olivera.
