Our Lucci half pad numnah features 100% Australian sheepskin and highly durable quilting. The are available in a variety of fleece colours including; white, black, grey, navy and brown. These are quality half pads that can be used with dressage, jumping or all purpose saddles. The contoured design aids in improving your saddle fit, as well as acting as an excellent shock absorber. With a spineless design that allow for air to follow freely along your horses spine.
Sheepskin fibres act as an excellent moisture wick, and it conducts heat slower than any other fibre, therefore reducing resisting rapid temperature changes.
BONUS: Each of our numnah's comes with their own custom washing bag.
Please note that the darker coloured fleeces have been carefully dyed by our manufacturer. While they are colour fast, contact with sweat may cause a small out of colour to seep initially. Please take caution with lighter coloured horses.
While it's always exciting to get new things its very important that you measure correctly to ensure you purchase the correct size.

Because sheepskin is a natural fibre you must ensure that it airs completely after use. Horses sweat is destructive, and will eventually destroy the lining if appropriate care isn't taken. You may occasionally wash your numnah in the washing machine, however please use the washing bag provided to ensure that it doesn't catch during washing - this is particularly the case for top loader washing machines. Please also use wool wash as washing powders contain enzymes which may affect the appearance of the sheepskin overtime. Maintaining good care of this product will increase its longevity.
While our products are made of high quality materials they are not indestructible! Proper care and attention will ensure that you and your horse get to enjoy them as long as possible.
BRUSHING BOOTS AND BELL BOOTS
Our brushing boot and bell boot range should be hand washed to ensure their longevity we recommend that you brush them off and give the fabric surface a wipe with soapy water and a soft damp cloth when needed. Continual hosing of fabric brushing boots will compromise decrease the life of this product. Please note that we can't provide refunds for brushing boots that have scuff marks, purely because that's what they are designed to do. We select the most durable products available, however they aren't indestructible.
HINT: A bra bag or pillow case liner (that has a zip) is a great way of ensuring your boots and bell boots avoid unnecessary scrapes in the washing machine.
Our bandages can be washed in the washing machine. To avoid annoying tangles in your bandages (and the ten minutes it will take to untangle them) we recommend that you fold them in half and tie a loop knot in the centre. This will prevent from getting tangle. Don't forget to attach the Velcro to the opposite side (much like you would before rolling them up after use).
At Team Ippico we do love our bandages being white!!! Bright white!! You can use a small amount of bleach in your wash cycle, however nothing beats a good soak in nappy-san and hot water. We always have a two pairs on hand - one for lessons or clinics, and another pair for the warm up before competing.
SADDLE CLOTHS, GIRTH COVERS AND NUMNAH'S:
Our beautiful saddle cloths, girth covers and numnah's are so fabulous that they nearly seem to good to use (don't we all have that saddle cloth that we want to keep in a bag and only get out for special occasions :-).
Our Argento, Saltare and Migilori (with sheepskin) can be washed in the washing machine. However our sheepskin saddle pads, girth covers and numnahs should be washed with care and therefore we recommend using the washing bag that was provided for saddle pads and numnah's at the time of purchase. Brush the sheepskin with a brush when dry to remove the excess dirt before use. Please note that washing after ever use will effect the enzymes of the wool, therefore prolonged life cannot be guaranteed. It is advisable that you wash your sheepskin saddle cloth in a front loading washing machine as the agitator of the top loading machine is far too harsh. Cool cycle with our Bense & Elike Velveton wool wash is recommended.
Our Lucci numnah's are made from Australian merino and therefore should be washed in the washing bag provided at purchase. Again, excessive washing should be avoided as it will help prolong the life of this product. We recommend our Bense & Elike Velveton wool wash.
