Our saddle experts are very excited to add this line of pads from Professional's Choice to our saddle pad selection.
The SMx Air Ride is lightweight, breathable and highly shock absorbent. This pad is designed for riders who want a little more padding between their horse and saddle. The heavy-duty 3/4 inch core allows even air circulation in every direction, resulting in accelerated head dispersion and moisture evaporation. The horse feels less heat and cools off faster, increasing overall performance. Pads feature a fleece lining that is easy to clean and dries quickly.
Breathable: Allows air to circulate in all directions so the horse feels less heat and cools off faster.
Shock Absorbent: Impact is absorbed and deflected throughout the core and away from the horse’s body.
Pressure-Distributing: Energy is dispersed throughout the core, evenly distributing weight from saddle and rider.
Compression-Resistant: Withstands repeated stress while maintaining its strength and structure.
Lightweight and Flexible: Supple, lightweight and conforms to the horse’s back
Dimensions: 30"L x 32"D
Which Professional's Choice SMx Air Ride Pad is right for you?
Heavy Duty (Abbreviated H.D.): SMx H.D. Air Ride Saddle Pads have a 3/4inch breathable core. These thicker pads are appropriate for any western discipline. Heavy-Duty Air Ride absorbs shock that could affect the performance of the horse.
Orthosport: SMx Air Ride Orthosport Saddle Pads are specifically designed for strong-shouldered and prominent-withered horses and have a 1/2 inch breathable core, plus a second layer of padding in the dished out areas behind the shoulders and along the spine. This extra padding helps to achieve a better saddle fit and assists in the even distribution of pressure across the entire back, especially relieving pressure from the highly susceptible withers and kidney areas.
