Technical Blog: Rider Leg Contact

Published on 13/11/2017

  • Technical Blog: Rider Leg Contact

Effective communication through the rider’s legs is of the upmost importance for correct and safe riding. As such many of our saddlepads and numnahs are designed specifically to minimise bulk under the rider’s leg while offering the horse the correct level of cushioning and support for their needs.

Today we would like to highlight just some of our products and design features to help maintain a close connection with your horse.

Everyday quilt: Our most simple saddlepads & numnahs are designed to create no pressure points or bulk and mainly serve protect your saddle from sweat as well as look good! Products to look out for: NM11 & SP11 Everyday HiWither Numnahs & saddlepads.

3D Spacer: This high-tech solution gives your horses back great levels of protection with minimal bulk through the use of our amazing spacer material. This material is proven to work in all climates offering high levels of moisture transfer and most importantly excellent pressure distribution. Products to look out for: SP32 3D Spacer Saddlepad and SP30 3D Spacer Endurance Pad. Shop Spacer Pads

Half Wool: Lining your numnah or saddle pad with wool under the weight bearing panels of your saddle allows your horse to benefit from the wonderful properties of wool (See our Advantages of Wool page) but leaves just a single layer quilt under the flaps and the rider’s lower leg. Products to look out for: NM08A HiWither Half Wool Numnah and SP01 HiWither Half Wool Saddlepad

Pro-Plus Pads: Made using 12oz duvet quilt the Pro Range gives great support and cushioning to saddles as well as being extremely hard wearing, great for professional yards. Pro-Plus pads feature a double layer of quilt under the panels of your saddle for extra protection without creating the feeling that your legs are being held away from your horse.

Griffin NuuMed manufacture many products that are designed to preserve a close lower leg contact and the above is by no means a complete list! Also worthy of a mention is our Luxury Gullet Free Range. This line uses our most dense British Wool making it ideal for long hours in the saddle and includes a clear gullet to allow the pad to sit comfortably in the gullet of your saddle. When used in the GF NM08A or GF SP01 HiWither Half Wool Numnah or Saddlepad the rider can maintain close communication safe in the knowledge that their horse’s needs are also being met.
