    Default Opinions--Fleeceworks WOOL Show hunter Pad vs Fleeceworks Sheepskin

    So I see that fleeceworks is now making a wool pad where instead of the fleece attached to the natural skin it is now wool attached to a poly-acrylic backing. My mare goes in a Mattes Correction Pad for schooling, and I was looking for a correction pad for shows (budget is a consideration).

    So does anyone have any experience with this wool pad vs. their full sheepskin? I just want to make sure it is still a quality pad before I purchase.

    Thanks!

    That looks like a really nice pad. I love the fleeceworks sheep skin pads and ride in them pretty much all the time, so it would be nice to know if this pad is just as good. Please post what you think if you decide to buy it.

    I will, yeah I was hoping to get someone else's thoughts on it before I purchased, but it is very reasonably priced and seems to still be high performance.

    I have one and absolutely love it. They wear like iron and they look great. What you won't be able to use though, is a girth with fleece showing. The colours are way different. The pad is "natural" and the girth fleece is white. I wash mine in the washer with melp and hang it to dry. Usually takes 2 days to dry and they look new forever.

    Thanks so much! I ride in a leather girth, so no worries about that I think this may be the route I go!
