Highland Ergonomic AP Half Pad in authentic Pendleton® Black Watch Plaid
Half pads are ultra-breathable, machine washable and include the highest rated shock absorbing shims in the industry. That translates into your horse's back muscles receiving increased blood circulation which translates into a smoother ride for everyone. And Pendleton®'s Black Watch pattern provides a stellar accent to a pad that makes everything easier.
The pattern, Black Watch Plaid, gets its name from one of the companies sent to patrol the Highlands under Col. William Grant roughly around 1725. The company eventually grew into the 43rd regiment and the Black Watch plaid would ultimately appear on the front lines of the French Wars, World War I, and World War II.
