The Steffen Peters Pad is a high end pad that uses garment quality shearling strategically placed under the saddle pressure points and over the withers with a micro-cellular pommel piece for comfort and slippage prevention all of which enables superior conformity to the horse’s back while wicking away moisture. The shearling panels of this extraordinary pad are padded with UltraShock, Professional's Choice signature shock absorbent material that is perforated to allow maximum breathability. The cut has a generous rise for the withers, an open spine and is slightly oversized for shrinkage. Soft 100% cotton top and bottom. Machine wash, hang dry.
