Diamond Wool Saddle Pads


Diamond Wool Pad Co logoEstablished in 1992 Diamond Wool Pad Co. is "The Natural Choice" for saddle pads. Diamond Wool saddle pads have become a well respected and trusted choice of horse enthusiasts around the world.

No other material combines comfort, safety, and durability like wool. While synthetics only trap moisture between the fibres, wool absorbs moisture away from your horse and insulates against both cold and heat. Since moisture absorption and release are gradual, wool is slow to feel damp and does not chill your horse by too rapid drying.

Wool is an amazingly strong fibre composed of protein that grows with a crimped wavy form, providing excellent properties of elasticity and resilience. This unique structure enables wool to mesh with the hair on your horse’s back, which prevents the shifting of your pad while riding. This resilient fibre is long wearing and has the ability to retain shape, drape well, and resist wrinkling due to natural elasticity. Wool cleans easily and will not soil or stain like synthetics because this unequalled structure withstands dirt penetration. The felting process increases the strength, durability and shock absorbency of wool felt. This process also allows your pad to conform to the shape of your horse’s back to provide soft cushioned protection.

"In the 30 years that we have been making and selling saddles at BETHEL SADDLERY we have made and sold a lot of saddle pads and we can honestly say that Diamond Wool Pads are a great hard working pad. They are as good a product as we have ever sold and also represents excellent value. Diamond Wool have a pad for every application and we are sure that once you try one you will also be convinced"

Care of your Diamond Wool Saddle Pad

Diamond Wool pads have a high percentage of wool content. To avoid shrinkage, do not use hot water to clean or heat to dry. Occasionally brush your pad with a curry brush. This will dislodge hair, dirt and sweat to prolong the usefulness of your pad. Place your pad in a well ventilated area for efficient drying.

To Clean Pads:
  • Use a soft cloth/sponge, a mild shampoo or detergent free soap and lukewarm water.
  • Slightly dampen the cloth or sponge and add a small amount of soap.
  • Work up a small lather on soiled areas.
  • Rinse with clean water.
  • Allow to air dry
  • Diamond Wool do not recommend machine washing any of their saddle pads.
