The EDIX® Merino western pad can be used under different brands of treeless as well as traditional tree saddles.
The pad is made from quilted cotton, with a full underside of high-quality genuine Merino® fur skin. High-quality Merino wool is technically probably still one of the most advanced materials in the world. Because the complete fur lambskin is used instead of shaved and woven wool, the benefits of this natural material are optimally exploited. That is why we recommend that you use it directly on the horse’s back.
All EDIX® Merino pads are fitted with a new design free spinal canal of short shaved fur, developed in a way to reduce pressure points and to provide optimal protection for your horse’s spine. Furthermore, the Merino fur skin has a large surface so that the panels of the saddle rest completely on it. As a result, the natural fibers effectively distribute the perspiration to the outside, while at the same time pressure is distributed and shocks are absorbed.
On both sides of the spine there are 2 long pockets underneath and 3 small pockets on the top for inserts. The 8 insert compartments can be used to improve the position of the saddle or for additional pressure distribution.
Where the rider’s leg rubs while riding, a nylon reinforcement is provided to prevent wear.
- Quilted double stitched step fabric.
- Anatomical shape.
- The abrasive part is reinforced with nylon.
- 8 separate loading pockets Velcro closing.
- Supplied as standard with felt inserts.

- Machine washable.
On both sides of the spine there are 2 large and 3 small pockets on the top for inserts. You can select which set of inserts you would like your pad to be fitted with and purchase additional pads as and when needed.
Felt pads are breathable, heat regulating and moisture absorbing. They have a light pressure distributing capacity and are supplied per set. Depth: 10 mm
The universal EDIX® Poly-Press inserts are made of composite foam, have a light pressure distributing capacity and are supplied per set. Depth: 15mm
Neoprene pads offer sustainable quality, good adaptability to the horse’s back and compressed to a very limited extent under pressure Depth: 15 mm
The EDIX® 3 Mesh inserts have a high degree of shock-absorbing and adapt to the anatomy, but have the ability to return to the original state. A very high-quality, durable pressure-distributing material with an open cell structure. The honey grade structure guarantees optimum ventilation even when loaded, in all directions. You can test the resilience by taking the material between two flat hands and then applying pressure with equal flat hands. The material will not last or you cannot press it flat. This load is comparable to the load that we issue with our seat on the saddle or riding bareback and indirectly via the 3 mesh on the horse’s back. Depth: 22mm
