Pure Wool Saddle Pad - Classic Standard - Cleanskin

Width x Length: 695mm x 710mm.

Our Cleanskin Saddle Pads are made from the same, self-conforming pure wool felt as our Classic Saddle Pads, and using the same designs, just without the addition of the canvas wear patches. This felt has been specifically engineered to our requirement and standards, with regards to density and thickness.

Our pure wool Cleanskin Saddle Pads are the perfect option for those looking for a good value working pad, of the same quality and standard as our reputable Classic Saddle Pads.

The Cleanskins are fully stitched around their perimeter and feature the same wither cut outs as our other saddle pads to promote their ability to shape and conform to your horse’s back and to assist with airflow and breathability.

Please note, all our saddle pads are made to order. Due to current high demand in the workshop, it takes between 3 to 7 business days for us to schedule and dispatch a saddle pad order.  Our workshop currently sews saddle pads every Wednesday, so if your order is placed by Monday evening, we can have it sewn and dispatched that same week. Any saddle pads ordered after Monday evening will be made and dispatched the following week. If you have any queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 02 6361 1601 or email info@angusbarrett.com.au.


  • What are Angus Barrett Saddle Pads made of?

    We make our saddle pads with 100% pure wool, sourced from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and felted together into layers.

    What are the benefits of pure wool?

    Wool is a natural fibre and is ideal for use directly against your horse's spine. Wool is extremely hard wearing and the quality way in which the wool is felted for our pads, delivers even greater strength, durability and shock absorbency. The wool withstands penetration of dirt and dust better than synthetics and is easy to clean. The natural properties of wool also ensure that any moisture wicks away from your horse's back, promoting airflow and insulating against both cold and heat. Moisture absorption and release are gradual, so the wool is slow to feel damp and does not chill you horse by drying too rapidly.

    We recommend that you do not use any other material, or saddle pads between your horse and the pad, as it will interfere with the natural benefits of the wool.

    What colours can I have?

    The pad itself is available in two natural wool colours, off-white and brown.

    What makes Angus Barrett’s pads so special?

    We have our wool felted to a very particular density that is designed not to be so loose that they fall apart, but also not so hard that it is stiff and uncomfortable.

    Our saddle pads are made using one piece of felt, without any stitching down the centre. This provides unrivalled strength and prevents the risk of the pad falling apart. All Angus Barrett saddle pads have been finished with a border stitch to prevent the pad from separating in its layers later in life. The specially designed cut-outs, which sit along the wither and spine of the horse, provide airflow and exceptional fitting. The thicker pads have additional cut-outs for greater flexibility and faster conforming.

    Angus first designed our saddle pads approximately 16 years ago. By combining the best pure wool and a design to specifically suit an Australian saddle and environment, he created a product that has proven quality and fitting with over a decade of results.

    Why are the pads not pre-moulded or contoured?

    The natural crimp of wool provides outstanding elasticity and resilience and the quality of wool that we use ensures that the pad bonds and conforms perfectly to your horse's back, preventing friction and rubbing. We consider any pre-moulding or contouring unnecessary. Just like a good quality felt hat, with use the saddle pad will self-conform to suit your horse’s back and your saddle, contouring to suit your individual needs.  The wool will continue to conform through the lifespan of the pad, so it can be used for multiple horses, saddles and disciplines.

    What thickness should I get?

    Angus’ recommends a thinner pad for breaking, training, or working young horses, for competition or short days, because it provides good close contact. A thinner pad will also conform to your horses’ shape more quickly.

    You will find that you get more miles out of a thicker pad and they are also well suited to hotter environments (thicker pads provide more absorption), longer days in the saddle, heavier riding, or simply when more padding is required with an ill-fitting saddle or problem back.

    What is the reason for the cut outs down the centre of the pad?

    The specially designed cut-outs, which sit along the wither and spine of the horse, provide airflow and exceptional fitting. As the pads become thicker, we have added additional cut-outs to their design to improve this fitting and airflow.
