Project Description


Protective Equipment

Individual harnesses and saddles are not designed to fit every horse. They are designed to fit one shape of a horse and when they are put on another type, often the cause discomfort by rubbing against the skin or press harder in one spot than another.  And when it doesn’t fit it often cause open sores or injured muscles to the horse.   Extra padding and protective covers can improve the fit and prevent the horse from having sore muscles or wounds which make the horse’s job much more pleasant and keeps the horse sound and healthy for longer.  One of Cuba’s Horses priority is to deliver protection and padding to prevent injuries that result from improper fitting equipment so that the working horse can be comfortable while doing his job.
