Ergonomic Fitting half pad
The Adjust Pad has a corrective feature with memory foam technology to adapt to the horse's back. Its 3D mesh soaks up shocks and reduces pressure points. It also has pockets to insert corrective shims.
Description of the ergonomic Fitting half pad
The calfskin wither-free Adjust Pad hugs the horse's shape and avoids compression over the withers. The top part of made from topstitched natural wool making it extremely hard-wearing and tear-resistant. It also protects the saddle leather from horse sweat.
The 3D mesh sits on the saddle pad and is extremely flexible to adjust to the horse's movements and the curves of its body. The 3D mesh also makes the Adjust Pad exceptionally lightweight.
In contrast to conventional pads, the Adjust pad has pockets to insert corrective shims. The shims can compensate for any irregularities and ensure the saddle fits snugly to the horse's back. The Adjust Pad comes with a set of 4 shims (2 in front 2 behind). The shape and material used to design the saddle pad pockets and shims mean that they will hold firm. The shims can be placed on top of each other to match the required correction.
Advantage of the ergonomic Fitting half pad
The Adjust Pad's 3D mesh acts as a shock absorber while reducing pressure points and improving airflow to the horse's back.
The Adjust Pad also has a built-in "corrective" feature with the shims ensuring that a saddle fits perfectly on a new horse. It also allows for muscle loss during the "off-season" or for any asymmetry in the shoulders or back.
The half pad is designed to suit all types of horses and is a particularly good choice for sensitive horses or those with back problems.
