The numnaa is an english term for pad/blanket. It looks somewhat like a
western round skirted pad and fits the shape of the panels. The riding cloth
is cotton quilt in either square or contoured shape. It fits over the panels
(covering them visually) and extends under the flap giving the saddle a
"traditional" pad look.
Someone once told me, in reference to suede leather seats, "either you slide
in your jeans or your jeans slide on your saddle." Obviously one could become
a little more of a problem. I think that as Ortho-Flex doesnt have control
over how our horses move, that it gives us another option to deal with our
horse's different ways of going.
