BEST PAD™ RACE WEIGHT SHAMMYS

Best Pad™ Race Weight Shammy, developed to help achieve precise handicap weight,is a slip resistant, rubber mesh product embossed with high density, flexible polymer, marking its weight, identifying name/initials and Best Pad™ logos. The international set of four Shammys weight 100 to 400 grams. Our Race Weight Shammy joins the family of fine equine athletic equipment from Best Pad™.

Weight and Grip

The Shammy has dual benefits--weight and grip. For the safety of horse and rider the race saddle needs to stay put. The Shammy was developed to reduce occurrences of race saddle slippage due to a saddlecloth rolling on itself. When saddling for a race, the saddlecloth is folded back on itself. A new, unlaundered saddlecloth has a very slippery surface. Also, saddle clothes of certain fabrics will continue to be slippery even after repeated use and laundering.

Easy to Use

The following protocol for saddling for a race with a Best Pad™ Shammy and Race Weight Pad provides added benefits. Place the Shammy across the horse's withers and back; followed by a Best Pad™ Race Pad; then a saddlecloth that is folded back on itself. Next, the Shammy is folded back over the saddlecloth, sandwiching and securing the race pad and the saddlecloth. Finally, the race saddle is placed on top of the Race Weight Shammy; the saddle girth is tightened, and the over-girth is secured. The Shammy's unique surfaces grip and help prevent unwanted secondary movement.
