The classic Close-Contact cut from LeMieux is designed to fit a wide range of more forward cut jumping saddles. Now one of the most iconic jumping pads with its high wither, elasticated D-Ring tabs, signature teardrop girth protection area and swept back profile. These saddle pads offer a very sleek and professional look to anyones saddle. The luxurious suede top side is complimented by new super soft Bamboo lining which absorbs & controls sweat under the saddle and is beautifully comfortable and secure - minimising friction even on sensitive skinned horses. Girth keepers incorporate inner locking loops to offer more girthing options.
The outer profile is edged with a double row of twisted rope braid which sets off this great looking pad.
There are several attractive colours with more new ones being added seasonally.
Consider matching your Suede Close Contact pad with a Signature Fly Hood in the same colour.
The new super soft Bamboo inner lining has extraordinary properties:
Exceptionally soft & light with similar feel to blend of cashmere & silk
Breathable & cool to wear with natural wicking, deodorising & anti-microbial
Often described as having the strength of steel with softness of cotton
Incredibly hydroscopic; controls sweat, absorbing more moisture than pure cotton & polyester fibres
Easy to wash and dries faster than normal lining fabric
Please note that all sizes are approximate and given in cm.
A pre-wash is recommended on all saddle pads to ensure colour fastness and to make fabric softer and more flexible for sensitive skinned horses.
Machine washable on normal 30 degree cycle.
Pull into correct shape whilst damp to maintain shape during drying.
Can be ironed at low heat.
We recommend using a wash bag in the washing machine. This both protects your machine and prevents snagging on the drum or seals.
Please ensure all velcro is closed firmly prior to washing.
Air dry (do not tumble).
