Sheepskin; the most versatile fabric!

Sheepskin saddle pads are an incredibly fashionable, attractive item to kit your horse out in for schooling or competing but the use of true sheepskin, as opposed to a synthetic alternative also provides unique health benefits, particularly useful during the summer months.

Often horse owners typically associate sheepskin as a cosy, warm layer that can provide warmth and comfort for our equines during the winter months. Though this is an accurate analogy, in fact sheepskin is exceptional at absorbing moisture and therefore provides a useful item during the winter and summer months alike.

Sheepskin numnahs and saddle cloths made from natural materials are considered one of the highest performing materials. Despite density sheepskin is highly breathable, composed of a mass of softly curled fibres that can hold many microscopic air pockets allowing air to circulate and water vapour to be released.

As well as allowing water to evaporate sheepskin draws water and sweat away from our equine’s backs. Sheepskin wool is able to hold 30% of its own weight in moisture before it begins to feel damp, allowing our horse’s skin and coat to remain drier for longer.
In addition real sheepskin, through its density and structure warms up and cools down, thermoregulating more slowly and effectively than other materials. This reduces temperature fluctuations in the muscles of our equine’s back, which in turn reduces the risk of injury.

World Wide Tack offer a wide range of Sheepskin accessories made from the highest quality Australian lambswool so you can kit your horse or pony out in the best products available.

Get set for eventing!

As published in May Local Rider magazine.

After years of watching your equestrian idols competing at Badminton, Burghley and the like, you have decided you would like to give eventing a go. The first step is making sure you and your horse are sufficiently fit, healthy and have a suitable schooling and training regime – but how do you get organised equipment wise, for the big event?

The equipment list for eventing can be a little daunting, leaving those new to the sport unsure of what to buy. How do we know what is a must-have and what equipment is horse specific, and individual to each horse and their behaviour and temperament?

Key products
All equine tack and rider attire is governed by British Eventing, when you compete at events run under the auspices of BE rules; strict rules are maintained regarding any tack which could be deemed relevant to safety or horse welfare. Full details can be viewed on the British Eventing website, http://www.britisheventing.com

Leather work can be one of the most confusing avenues for the beginner event rider, so here we take a look at some items commonly used in the sport of eventing:

Bridles
A standard Cavesson noseband is the most commonly seen noseband in eventing and is permitted in all disciplines – it is a must-have on any double bridle. Double bridles are only to be seen during the Dressage phase at Intermediate Novice level and above, but can be used at lower levels during, both the Show Jumping and the Cross Country phases of eventing competitions. Grackle and Dropped nosebands are allowed in all disciplines, but only when combined with a snaffle bit.

Martingales
Martingales are used to help the rider control the head carriage of the horse. Running martingales, which allow more freedom and movement than other martingales, are permitted and are often seen during the show jumping and cross country phases of eventing contests. Other gadgets and martingales such as standing martingales and Market Harboroughs are strictly forbidden in all eventing phases.

Breastplates
Breastplates are used in order to keep the saddle in place, and also provide a useful “grab strap”, should the rider be unseated or left behind over a fence. Breastplates often have a martingale attachment, but this can only be attached during the jumping phases.

Stud Girths
Stud girths are permitted in all disciplines but only generally used during the jumping phases. They aim to protect the abdomen of the horse from the risk of catching themselves and causing injury when they are wearing studs. Many riders consider a stud girth an essential safety item, particularly when jumping at the higher levels.
