The English Seat Saver cushion attaches with 3 nonstretchy webbing straps and cinching buckles under the center buckling in the rear, and around each fender buckling in the rear. The straps hold the cushion securely to the saddle.
Check out the option for fabrics and colors on the Fabrics page.
The English + Seat Saver is available for this style by doing a custom order. Because the English saddle is small and the rider is very close to the horse for communication, additional padding is not generally desired. More than the original 1" cushion is generally not ordered.
Comfort Curves Seat Saver Cushions may be machine washed gentle cycle or hand washed in cold and dried flat. The cushion may be placed vertically in the washing machine for the spin cycle to remove excess water. Dryer heat may damage fabric and foam materials. The cushion inside the Seat Saver is high density open cell foam similar to what is inside of furniture and will stand up to a lot of use. This was chosen to cushion and compress your body as you come down on the cushion and to expand when you come up off of it allowing for the next impact compression. It meets your body more gently than a saddle alone. When you get warm in your cushion a few bounces will expel hot air and your cushion will feel cooler again. This cooling effect is only available in cushions which can breathe.
Fabrics with longer surface fibers like the faux sheep will hold more body heat. They will absorb sweat. and may get damp needing air drying time like your horse's saddle pad. Due to their fluffy texture they will also feel more cushiony. If they flatten down after riding, use your fingers or any pet brush to fluff them up again. Smooth fabrics like faux suede will be the coolest since they have the shortest fibers on the surface. They will absorb sweat.
Polar fleece fabrics have medium fiber length so will hold a medium amount of body heat. They will absorb sweat. Fabrics with a print design will hide dirt and hair.
The faux tooled fabrics have a rubber type of coating on the fabric which provides some grip for the rider. They do not absorb sweat. They do slough off the dirt. Please contact us if you have questions before ordering this fabric for English saddles.
