Our saddle blanket design evolves for fit and comfort!

When we first started making bareback saddles, we realized that decorative saddle blankets were a necessary accessory--not for padding, but to help keep the underside of the saddle clean.  The bareback saddles are difficult to clean because of the leather seat, but a blanket can just be thrown in the wash.  The blankets can also be a great way to accent the color of your saddle, or your horse!

Ordinary saddle blanket doesn't fit a horse's contours Our first blankets had a conventional straight top profile, like the one pictured at left.  These worked fine under regular saddles, where the bars of the saddle press the blankets to the horse's sides and the gullet of the saddle puts no pressure on the top line of the blanket. 

But when we began using them with the bareback saddles
, we found that they wrinkled and bunched up behind or beneath the saddle, putting pressure on the withers. 
The difference is, of course, that in a bareback pad the rider's weight presses the blanket down onto the topline of the horse, and a straight blanket simply can't fit well under those circumstances.  So we redesigned the blankets, adding a large v-shaped gusset to accommodate the withers and a smaller one in the back to keep the blanket from pulling tight over the horse's hips, as shown.

To protect your horse's back, our saddle blankets have no seam down the center.  And the gusset seams are placed so that they never press on the horse's back.

LittleJoe saddle blanket contoured for better fit

 

Our latest model, the shaped blanket, which follows exactly the curves of our bareback saddle.  A great clean look.
