Exceptional!!!! My horse loves them. Thank you so much for creating a fantastic product!

I have anti-gall girths, elasticated girths, different shapes and sizes, fleecy girth sleeves… If you have a sensitive, girthy horse, get this felt girth pad before you start wasting money on any other solution (assuming it isn’t a saddle problem). They are fab! Your horse will smile when you girth up.

As with all the other felt products – easy care! They stay clean and good looking for what seems like forever, and washing is no hassle – just soak, no scrubbing or fussing.

I have had a therapeutic pad for my high withered TB for a while. I recently bought one of these endurance shaped pads, and Waione added a cutback to the pommel for me. I use this combo with my treeless saddle and I now have one really happy horse (and I’m pretty pleased too!).

These felt pads are such easy care and always look great – you’ll wonder why you bothered with anything else!!

I have used Waione Woollies saddle blankets for several years now and have found them to be an excellent product. They not only wear extremely well, they mould to the horses back.

As an Equine Therapist and independent saddle fitting assessor, I want the best for my horses and also my clients’ horses as well.

I highly recommend Waione Woollies Saddle blankets for all horses of all kinds’ equine sports and disciplines.

Thank you for making such a great quality product.

Your pad arrived Thursday in perfect condition. It is beautiful! I love the color and your workmanship is excellent. The wool is softer than my other wool felt pads and I’m sure the horses will enjoy the feel of that. I tried it today with my saddle and it fits great.

Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to share your name with my other Peruvian show friends.

Thank you very much for the halfpad, it fits beautifully under my saddle and looks stunning, I’ve always been a fan of wool, but this is the ultimate. It is far better than the Bartel or Mattes halfpads that I’ve seen. I will definitely be saving for another pad for my other horse.

The horse is very happy with the woollie, just did an 80km endurance ride with it and it’s all good, thank you.


To potential buyers: these are awesome saddle blankets- quality all the way! You won’t regret the investment – I have two of them. They wash up like new every time.


I have just come back from riding The Great NZ Trek, and used my saddle blanket for the whole week. I would normally use two different blankets throughout the week to allow the one not being used to dry. With your blanket I didn’t have to do that, I just aired it out at the end of the day, and it was ready to use the next (and every) day.

I will fully recommend your product to everybody I know. And I will now only use my Waione saddle blanket from now on. So once again thanks for the wonderful, speedy service and an awesome blanket from a very satisfied customer.


Waione grooming pads

Hey there, I have two of these and they are fantastic. My horse’s coat is truly shining – it’s amazing! Thanks so, so much and good luck selling more of them – they are great!!!!!


I love my Waione Wool felt saddle blankets – I now have two. They are so hard wearing and require surprising little care. Great for my endurance as it draws the sweat away, also good enough to use in showhunter. The half panels are great.

I wanted to try a treeless saddle but it was very hard to find one that fitted my high-withered horse. With the help of the two panel pieces, velcroed to my existing saddleblanket, it was enough to lift it off the spine. I rarely use anything else.


I love your saddle blankets and got my first one when you first started making them. It’s the plain one and I still have it and use it all the time; it has lasted all these years and still looks fantastic!


I just wanted to take the time to let you know that I am thrilled with my Waione Woolies Therapeutic pad. My darling boy is a typical NZ TB with a high wither. After trying many saddles I decided that my current saddle is the BEST fit but still not perfect. A friend suggested I have a look at your website as she had had great success with her TB when using one of your pads.

Last night I girthed the boy up and as usual he tensed up as he was anticipating the discomfort he would ‘soon’ feel. However this time of course he didn’t due to the fact that the pad allowed the saddle to sit well clear of his wither. I proceeded to lunge him first and then I got him.

For the first time in approx 1 year (part of which he was turned out for 6 months) there was absolutely no hint of discomfort from him. The main thing I noticed was absolutely no lifting of his back. He was much happier and gave me some stunning moments at trot. Now I just need to work on my riding and also work on our canter leads which I am sure will come as he gets better.

Thank you


I have a mare who would get terrible heat lumps where her saddle sat on her back. After trying numerous washes and different pads, I finally tried a second hand Waione woollie blanket on her. I am so impressed I will definitely be investing in a dressage-shaped new one now as her lumps disappeared almost completely! Many thanks from a now happy horse.

Thanks… My new Waione Woollie blanket not only fits perfectly but performs exactly as promised! The sweat ran out from under the corner down his belly & gone! Only the outside edges of the blanket were wet when I took it off… Great.
Many thanks :0)


Hi Waione Woollies. Just wanted to pass on something to you. Recently a small group of horsemen and women followed a dream of one of them and rode across NZ from Awakino to Napier.

In the debriefing it was noted that all the horses who had Waione Woolies felt blankets came through without any saddle sores.

They must be the best!


Wow, I am just super, super impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of my new felt blanket. Amazing….. Your turnaround sales must be low as I can see my blanket lasting for years!! But just as you were recommended to me, I will recommend you to others!!
