This lambskin is to be positioned directly on the horse's back underneath the saddlepad. The underlay is attached at the front to the girth strap loops by means of a buckle. This means that a small edge of lambskin can be seen in the area of the withers. Because of the way it is made-up, there are no seams or edgings to form pressure points in the sensitive back area. Lambskin is a natural product which has self-cleaning, heat-regulating and extremely skin-friendly properties. You can wash the saddle cloths as usual, the lambskin will enjoy a long life if it is brushed frequently, and washed from time to time using a special detergent.
