Let’s Talk Pressure Points and Hi Wither
When Griffin NuuMed was first established 28 years ago it was based on four main principles; to create a saddlepad that fitted saddles properly, was comfortable for the horse, looked good (and kept on looking good for a long time) and was easy to clean & look after. Nothing has changed. One of the key area areas central to all these points is removing as many pressure points as possible!
Pressure Points: Extra pressure points and ridges can affect saddle fit and may even damage your saddle over long periods. The undue pressure can cause your horse to move unevenly and be very uncomfortable similar to us walking with a stone in our shoe. All this pressure will then cause excess wear on fabric and stitching meaning your pad will not last as long as it should and as part of this it will not clean well where it is excessively worn. Here at NuuMed we do a lot of things to make sure we do not create extra pressure points:
Hi Wither Cut: The HiWither cut is not just great for horses with HiWithers. The shaping allows your saddlepad or numnah to sit comfortable up into the gullet of your saddle removing pressure both in front and behind the saddle as well as allowing air flow.
Generous sizing based on saddle size: our sizes are based on saddle size and designed so the binding, stitching and any collars sit well clear of the edge of your saddle meaning it is sat only on the main body of your pad.
Saddle Pad- No braiding or piping around the girth area: All our saddlepads with piping or braiding purposefully omit it below the girth straps. This is partly as in this area it can wear excessively due to the constant friction but it also means there is one less ridge under what is potentially a high pressure area.
