Dryback is an Equalizer Saddle Pad by SKITO that is constructed to release heat and moisture from the large back muscle to the atmosphere. Air flows between the saddle and saddle pad thanks to the addition of the 3M Nomad matting to the top of the saddle pad. Simply put, the exclusive SKITO wool efficiently wicks the heat laden perspiration to the open cell foam inserts, which acts as a dense sponge pulling moisture and heat away from the animal to the surface of the pad. In the past the heat and moisture stopped in the top layer of the saddle pad because the saddle became an obstacle to transpiration. the addition of the Nomad matting enable air to flow under the saddle to evaporate the moisture and dissipate the heat normally trapped against the saddle.
