Saddle blankets are just one of the many things necessary to properly take care of riding horses. The saddle blankets help to prevent the saddle from chafing the horse's back. It also absorbs moisture from the horse's sweat when on long trail rides, making the horse much more comfortable. If you can cut and sew a blanket stitch, you can make your own saddle blankets. When choosing fabric for your saddle blankets, go with a wool or similar fabric that is soft and breathable. It will provide the most comfort for your horse.
Received my 'make your own blanket'. It is once again totally georgous! I have had two stuffies previously which were fabulous and this blanket is just as lovely. Its so soft and I'm sure my nephew will love it as a Christening present rather than the usual silver items!. Highly recommended.
