Fleeceworks FXK Plain Edge Halfpad
Fleeceworks FXK Plain Edge Halfpad with patent pending FXK technology offers comprehensive back protection for your horse: specially selected Australian Merino sheepskin provides superior thermal balance and relief from pressure points. The newly designed cut brings closer contact under the rider's leg and a dropped front has increased protection from pressure caused by the point of the tree. The FXK technology acts as a shock absorber, with two cross-elastic bands catching any pressure before it can reach the sensitive spine and wither region. This pad can be used on top or under a square pad. (The piped edge doesn't disturb the drape of a square pad if it's placed over the halfpad.)

CARE INSTRUCTIONS PER FLEECEWORKS:
Everyday Care: Let item dry. Brush dirt and sweat marks with wire brush. When almost dry, a light brushing of the wool areas with is recommended to remove any soil. The natural oils in the hair fibers will normally release dirt particles with light brushing. Brushing also cleans the fleece and restores the loft of the Sheepskin pad.
TO CLEAN: The best care for Sheepskin (a leather product) is to HAND WASH or hose off in wash rack, using minimal water and soap. Fleeceworks M.O.S.S Fresh RIDER Leather Laundry Care Kit is recommended. Simply lather, rinse and wipe off excess water. DO NOT BLEACH!
Another alternative is to use a front load washing machine set to HAND WASH and use cold water. This method can over-saturate the hide, though, which increases drying time.
*Use of laundry detergent causes deterioration of the Sheepskin and INVALIDATES the Warranty.*
TO DRY: Lay flat in shade. DO NOT expose to direct sunlight or heat source. Leather may constrict slightly during the drying process. To remedy, simply stretch the item back into shape while damp. Allow at least one day for drying in humid climate.
