Not all sponges are created equal! The Grommeted Natural Wool Sea Sponge holds a tremendous amount of water which makes sponging and cooling off your horse a breeze. Natural Wool Sea Sponges are far more dense and durable than synthetic sponge alternatives. These thirsty sponges are sustainably harvested in the Gulf of Mexico by Apalachicola Sponge Company in Florida as a renewable product of our generous oceans.
These natural sponges are fully and securely grommeted so that they are ready for immediate attachment to a handy Sponge Leash or Zilco Sponge Strap which allow you to attach the sponge to your saddle for a quick and easy way to cool off your trail horse during water crossings!
Tip: Wet your sponge before you start your ride so it sinks into the water. This is handy if you are using a sponge leash and would like to stay in the saddle.
Another Tip: Respect riders and horses at the water troughs and don't dip your dirty sweaty sponge directly into the trough...please use a water scoop and dip your sponge into that.
