CHRIST pads are designed based on our exceptionally high standards in California and then manufactured by equestrian innovators CHRIST of Germany. Wool shearing, especially when the skin is attached to the wool, is renowned for its 'kind to the skin' features, it's longevity of use, and is cut in different length - "shears" - so that there is less bulk under the leg and plenty of protection under the saddle.
CARE: Let dry, shake out, and "curry" is a daily treatment,. Cool wash in equine wool wash when caked. Line dry - do not put into a dryer - this is real shearling!
In addition, though hard to detect, each pad has a full length shim pocket. Full length foam inserts can be ordered with your pad and Double Diamond can also provide specific corrective shims as well as inserts made out of memory foam, felt, or a combination, in several thicknesses. Christ saddle pads come in a durable quilted top fabric in black and brown.
