An ideal working pad for everyday use, the Roper Elite is contoured to fit the horse’s back and made of heavy-duty materials for lasting wear. The layered construction consists of felt over shock-absorbing foam rubber with a layer of SMx Air Ride™ material on top, under the saddle bars. The foam bottom is closed-cell so it doesn’t absorb sweat. This pad has leather reinforcements along the spine, and cutouts at the withers and under the saddle fenders to enhance fit. Also works well over a show Navajo blanket.
