These Charmayne James C11 blanket top saddle pads are a great choice for arena performance. You have 3 great options of bottoms in these pads: wool felt, wool felt with NITRO-GEL inside, or fleece. All C11 pads are contoured for a great fit to the horse. We use heavy oiled grain out leathers which result in less cracking and drying out. Futurity front for wither relief.
Here are the benefits of each pad to help you decide which is the best option for your horse:
WOOL FELT: Wool provides excellent shock protection. It will naturally wick away more moisture, release heat build up, breathe for a cooler ride, and is quick drying after use. The wool conforms to the horse’s back resulting in less slippage. The contour shape provides better fit for horses with more pronounced withers or more sway to their back and allows the saddle to fit properly.
FLEECE: Plush comfort against the horse
WOOL FELT and NITRO-GEL: All the benefits of wool listed above, plus NITRO-GEL for an additional layer of maximum shock protection. NITRO-GEL coverage is the full tree bar area from front to back. It’s long lasting – you never have to worry about it popping. This revolutionary NITRO-GEL won’t break down, pop, or freeze!
