These unique SADDLES PADS were launched in February 2014 and are already being used successfully by leading international riders Dougie Whyte, Christophe Soumillon, William Buick, James Doyle, Martin Kirby, Jeff Lloyd, Barend Vorster, Gregory Benoit and Andreas Helfenbein in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Mauritius, France, England, United Arab Emirates, Zimbabwe, Kenya and eighteen of the top twenty riders in South Africa.
Unlike conventional foam or sponge pads that absorb moisture (weight), generate heat and offer very little real protection to the horse's wither and back, these SADDLE PADS are manufactured and moulded using a combination of SVA and EPDM open cell foam to provide the best pressure compression and deflection properties without crumpling, pinching or folding for the horse's benefit and comfort.
BENEFITS FOR THE HORSE AND JOCKEY:
- Ranges of Pad sizes allows for choice to avoid carrying weight bags.
- The exceptional deflection and unique compression properties of the material, will alleviate most pressure points caused by saddles and skin pinching.
- The pads do not absorb moisture so no weight will be gained prior to or during a race.
- If a pad needs to be used in consecutive races, they can be rinsed and dab dried.
*Please note that price displayed is for the price of one pad only not the whole three pictured*
