1. Why is Horsedream so special?
All Horsedream products are made out of the finest, purest sheepskin/lambskin and are made to the highest quality specifications. Lambskins have a high therapeutic value; they promote circulation and are temperature balancing. They reduce saddle pressure and prevent the development of sores. In addition, lambskins do not provide a breeding ground for viruses and bacteria, and they neutralize acids and odours and are naturally dirt resistant. They are easy care and hard wearing. All our lambskin products have been practically designed to easily withstand normal washing in the machine and even tumble drying!
All our Horsedream products have been produced by Christ Lamfelle in Germany under strict quality controls, by a tannery which has won a great many awards for environmental protection and has been established and held in high regard since 1954.
2. What is so special about lambskin?
Lambskin is a natural product, it is fully breathable, suitable for both summer and winter use and is excellent from a hygiene point of view as it is naturally bacteria resistant. Horsedream lambskins have been carefully created to be very easy care and involve no more and, if anything, less work than equestrian products made from other substances. The softness of the lambskin against the horses skin will help the horse to feel comfortable, take away any pressure from the saddle or bridle, and encourage the horse to move freely. It will help to prevent sweating or rubbing, and aid the horse in its ability to perform and respond to the rider, feeling only what you want the horse to feel i.e. you, the rider!, and not uneven pressure from the tack.
3. You say its easy care, well, how easy?
Put it this way, if only every woollen jumper you purchased was as easy to look after as this! We know riding horses gets everything grubby and sweaty. Well just air your Horsedream products, and it will be fine! However, if after tramping through mud you feel you need to wash your product. Simply pop it in the machine wash at 30 degrees on a wool wash and tumble dry afterwards (we strongly recommend you use a sheepskin detergent). If you dont want to tumble dry, then stretch the product out flat to dry.
Reshape the product several times through the drying process.
