The LaBona GRANDIOSA riding cushion is upholstered by hand: the underside with upholstery wadding, the seat is additionally padded with 20mm latex.
When riding, the filling of the cushions adapts to the anatomy of horse and rider. The seat surface has additional latex padding. The seating feeling is incredibly comfortable from the very first second. The slightly raised seat area favours an upright posture and supports a mobile hip, so that you can better swing along with the horse's movements. The extra flat side panels allow close contact with the horse. You can still feel the animal's body heat, yet the knee has a non-slip grip and the trousers stay clean.
In the withers area, the pad is slightly cut back and slightly raised, so that it is also suitable for horses with high withers.
The underside is made of a robust, non-slip felt. So you don't need to girth too tightly. Ideal for horses that are sensitive to girthing. The girth does not run over the horse's back, so that punctual pressure is excluded. To avoid punctual pressure on the spine, there is also no stirrup attachment and the horse is ridden without stirrups.
The pad can be carefully brushed out for cleaning. The pad has been designed so that it can be used without a saddle cloth. If you wish, you can of course also use a saddle blanket. The seat surface can be cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge. Saddle soap and saddle grease can also be used, but these care products are not absolutely necessary.
The LaBona GRANDIOSA riding pad is suitable for almost all types of horses. For horses with protruding spinous processes, the padding prevents the unpleasant pressure between a protruding spine of the horse and the ischial tuberosity of the rider. For horses with a broad back, the shape of the seat supports an elongated leg and thus provides the prerequisite for a freely moving hip.
PLEASE NOTE: Hard, rough or dull surfaces as well as zips, Velcro, hard seams or rubber on riding clothes (this also includes boots and chaps) can, however, lead to abrasion and in the worst case the fabric can wear through. If, contrary to expectations, the pad shows signs of damage caused by material incompatibilities that go beyond normal signs of use, the item of clothing or equipment should no longer be used in conjunction with the pad. Damage caused by material incompatibility is not a reason for complaint. A so-called pilling effect can occur on the felt over time. This is also no reason for complaint.
