In Idaho, when considering horse tack and horse feed do you think grass forage is not enough for your working horse? If your horse does not get a commercial concentrate, it may be important to supplement additional vitamins/minerals to his forage diet. This can be given in the form of a ration balancer.
DId you know that one item in your horse tack has lots of technology behind it in Idaho? That item would be your saddle pad.New synthetic materials are used to make advanced pads for specific needs. Saddle pads are infused with or pockets added containing gel, memory foam , or even air pockets, often to help with shock absorption or pressure relief. Wool is a strong protein fiber that in a crimped, wavy form provides elasticity and resilience. Wool felt and wool/synthetic-combined materials conform well to shape, which enhances stability between the horse, tack and rider. Because it fits to the horse’s form, wool felt pads don’t shift, and the felting or fiber grinding process increases the shock absorbency of the wool fibers. Cotton is the most commonly used fiber for saddle pads, and fleece and quilted show pads are popular on many circuits. When combined with synthetic fibers, cotton pads can be made with contouring, heat-reducing and shock-absorbing benefits and still have a natural-fiber outer shell
