The Strada Girth
It also contributes to the stability of the saddle. The leather used in the girths is the same as that used in the saddles, which gives the ensemble uniform quality and looks.
Strada Stirrup Leathers
They are single-thickness straps, with a loop at the top and a Conway buckle at the bottom. They are made individually to suit the purchaser’s leg length.
Strada Waterbottle Holder
The bottle holder is made from the same leather as the saddles, ensuring consistent quality and appearance.
Strada Endurance Pad
The felt wicks moisture away from the horse’s body, rather than holding it in. This is very important for endurance horses in particular, as skin that has been softened by moisture will quickly become sore. The combination of wool and felt in one pad is extremely efficient at keeping the horse’s back cool and dry.
The pad is equipped with a pair of Strada grip patches. The grip patch is made from a special smooth PVC-type material which is highly slip-resistant, particularly when pressed against another smooth surface. Just tightening the girth makes the saddle grip the pad. There is no need for any other form of attachment.
The pad is therefore quick and easy to change, a feature valued by endurance riders. It can be washed at 40º C, spun and tumble dried (low heat setting). If the grip patch picks up dust, it can simply be wiped with a damp cloth.
Strada Numnahs & Dressage Squares
Strada numnahs and are made of quilted cotton/polyester by Griffin NuuMed Ltd. to Strada’s own design, which matches Strada saddles. They are equipped with the same grip patch as the Endurance Pad above and available in black, white or brown.
The dressage squares also come from Griffin NuuMed Ltd., again with the Strada grip patches.
