100% Merino Wool Saddle Liners >> Ideal Base Layer for Horses
What’s the Difference? The exceptional fine fibers and overall quality of Merino wool ensures the integrity of our patent pending Saddle Liners, and provides the best first layer to place on your horse’s back without interfering with the unique features of a saddle pad. Not to mention, protecting it from sweat, hair, dirt, and regular wear.
Unsurpassed Moisture Wicking. Merino wool’s exceptionally fine fibers absorb large quantities of moisture vapor and enable evaporation better than other fibers.
Temperature Regulation. Since moisture traps in heat, wicking moisture away from the skin has a cooling effect. Additionally, Merino wool has a natural crimp, which creates many very small insulating air pockets. The result is that Merino wool provides cooling in the heat, and warmth in the cold.
Flexible Fiber. Merino wool’s fine fibers are curly, and so they behave like tiny coil springs, easily stretching and contracting to their former shape. This elasticity makes Merino wool ideal as the liner on an active horse.
Durable & Lightweight. The superfine fibers of Merino wool lend it such softness, it’s hard to believe how durable it is. And the fiber’s unique composition make this wool remarkably light.
Antibacterial & Odor-Resistant. Merino wool contains naturally occuring lanolin and keratin, which give it antimicrobial properties.
Resistant to Pilling. Pilling occurs naturally when shorter fibers work their way to a fabric’s surface. Due to the unique qualities of merino wool’s resilient fibers, it develops far fewer pills than any other wool.

“My horses work hard for me, and I owe them the best care I can offer. Steed Armor Saddle Liners keep them more comfortable and their back’s drier. I love how they fit and allow my good saddle pads to last longer.”
– Cindy Wright, 12X WPRA Barrel Racing Finalist, Trainer, and Inventor of The Right Bits.
The breakthrough in Steed Armor’s high-performance patent pending products results from delving back to nature’s exceptional textile, Merino wool.
