A great look and a great effect. Advanced thermo memory foam encourages the saddle to ‘bed down’ into this beautifully designed tactile half pad. The effect anatomically contours the horse’s back for effective shock absorption and pressure distribution. In turn this allows for closer contact where other half pads may stand the saddle too far off the horse’s back. To enable more saddle fitting options eight closed cell adjustment shims are included. However, this ProSorb Memory foam pad can be used with or without the shims making it a flexible dual-purpose half pad. The compression of the memory foam stabilises the saddle and keeps it in place.
