Horse Saddle RugsSaddle carpets for horses
A good rug, like anything worthwhile, is rarely "cheap" and should be regarded as an asset. Woollen? There is no other fabric for the rider that unites absorbtion, convenience and strength as well as canvas. Whereas plastics only capture humidity between the fibres and cause undesired warmth development, cotton is absorbing humidity away from the horse and emitting warmness.
Because it absorbs and releases humidity gradually, yarn feels slowly moist and does not dry your horse too quickly. woollen breath, is cold in summers and hot in winters. It is an astonishingly powerful fibre made of proteins, which grow with a corrugated shape and give it outstanding characteristics in terms of flexibility and spring.
It is a special texture that allows the felt to adapt to the horse's body, increasing the strength between horse, bridle and horseback. Beautifully shaped woollen felt avoids the upholstery slipping while driving. Thanks to its inherent resilience, the woollen fibre is dimensionally stable, easy to draw and durable.
felt-melting enhances the cushioning of the woollen fibre and provides gentle padding for horse and horseback. A rug will last for many years if cared for properly (which requires little attention), even if used for many long periods every year. These are some hints to help you extend the use of a rug:
Knock and scrub the ceiling. Just bang the ceiling against a wall, a wall of pipes, etc. every few nights. Then use a gentle to medium-hard horse bristle brusher (no metallic combs) and remove the skin and coat from the ceiling. Clean the ceiling. Every sixty to ninety working day, clean the ceiling in a bath with cool running mud.
To achieve the best results, place your ceiling in a bath of hot or cold running tap and leave it to macerate for at least one hours. Then as best you can, "wring" the ceiling in the pool, then "wring" it out of the pool. Now suspend the ceiling over a bar (like the top bar of a fence) and gently sweep off the ceiling with a smooth to middle bristle on both sides.
Allow the ceiling to thoroughly cure, then bang it against a gate or wall until it feel as smooth as a new one. Notice: It is best not to use soapy water when cleaning rugs. It retains a lot of the detergent (also detergents made especially for wool).
If the rug gets sweaty, the remaining soapy water can soak through the very absorbent woollen material and cause irritation to the back of the horse. It has no influence on the usefulness of the ceiling in fulfilling its actual use. While you can put a new cover over it when you look at it, you will probably find that you like the older, pale, soft cover next to your horse's back.
Utilized as home decoration, woven Indian ceilings retain their colour for much longer than those that are often sweaty and often flushed from the hardness of the ride.
In manual looms, the yarns of the filling yarn and chain are woven together on a machine. Nylons are the filaments that form the frame of the weaver' s mill and cannot be slit without the bed. On the other side, the weave (wool) forms the weave and can be slit without affecting the weave's weaving integrity.
During manual looming, the filling yarn is supported by a spool that can take up enough yarn to make only a few centimetres of length before it uses up the stock of yarn. The end of this package must then be overlayed with another package end and the weave can be continued until the required length is reached.
Up to 4 layers of thread can be twined into one thread for thick saddle covers. If these coil ends appear by scrubbing or rubbing on the horse, the end of the road seems to be over! Felt threads are usually thickened and more expensively and are mainly used for the more expensively, individually weaved saddle covers.
