The saddle pad lined with alpaca fleece has medical properties comparable to the well-known lambskin saddle pad. However, alpaca fleece is obtained by shearing the animals, so it represents an animal-friendly alternative to the conventional lambskin saddle pads.
Since no skin is processed, the alpaca fleece saddle pad is thinner and is perfect for horses with a sensitive saddle position, allergies or problems with sebaceous glands. These are proven to recede after a few weeks. Alpaca wool is thinner and lighter than sheep wool and has cavities that are excellent at storing moisture without feeling wet. The fleece has an absolutely thermoregulating effect and acts in summer like a real air conditioner.
The structure of alpaca wool is more curly than sheep wool, which is why it is shock-absorbing without being bulky. The rider sits close to the movement of the horse and can give sensible weight aids despite the shock-absorbing effect of the saddle pad.
As light as a feather, the alpaca fleece distributes the pressure under the saddle demonstrably evenly. Like all L'Evoine saddle pads, the alpaca fleece saddle pad is particularly ergonomically shaped and is cut extra high at the withers. It does not have to be unchambered again during training and does not slip.
