Re: Supracor Saddle Pads
Hi Marlene -- thanks for your input.
Have you ever used an equilon pad? Are the Cool grips similar?
I too am impressed by the dryness under the pad that you experienced. The
Equilon claims to "pump the moisture off the horse's back", but I can't believe
they wouldn't be like wearing a plastic bag.
Have you tried hosing it off yet? Does it soak up water like a sponge? Does
the horse hair get embedded and impossible to hose off?
