Saddlecloths, or Saddle Cloths, have been used for centuries with all different types of saddles all over the world. Saddlecloths are designed to fit underneath the saddle and are made in a variety of materials including cottons, wools and synthetics. Generally square in shape, they come in different thicknesses too to provide comfort for the horse.
Numnahs are essentially saddlecloths shaped around the saddle so that less of the material is visible.
Saddlecloths and Numnahs provide comfort for the horse and act as padding between the saddle and the horse’s back. Many thicker types offer shock-absorbtion.
