Another padding update
A few months ago, we made this post to help you sort out the difference between our neoprene and our leather padding, which we’ve added as options to most of our halter, bridle, and breastcollar designs. (You can reread that piece here.)
Now, we’ve got two more types of padding in our shop! Each has its own particular attributes to suit your needs.
The softest padding we offer is deerskin. There’s really no way to tell from pictures how buttery this is to the touch, but believe us when we say that if you choose this padding you’ll wish we made deerskin-padded boots and gloves for you. Deerskin padding is available in nine different colors and the dyes end up looking especially vibrant with this material.
Right now, deerskin is only available on our turnout halters, but it’ll be coming to all our designs soon.
The other new padding is our synthetic padding. This is a closed-cell, sweatproof padding covered by a waterproof, colored vinyl. The vinyl is marine vinyl, which means it’s especially tough and resistant to fading. This combination of materials is popular with certain types of harness makers because it can hold up to so well to a sweaty horse on a long drive.
This padding comes in 17 colors to go with our already-extensive list of beta biothane base colors.
Whichever type of padding you choose, your horse will thank you!
