Our saddle experts are very excited to add this line of pads from Professional's Choice to our saddle pad selection. Hand woven 100% wool Navajo blanket top. Heavy-duty SMx Air Ride™ core protects the horse’s back from pressure. 100% merino wool lining helps wick away moisture and conforms to the horse’s back for maximum comfort.
SMx H.D. (Heavy-Duty) Air Ride™ Saddle Pads have a 3/4 inch 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. And it's made of a unique material found in the protective gear of professional human athletes for absorbing shock while allowing air flow to the skin, creating a natural cooling system that lowers the horse’s body temperature and slows the rate of fatigue.
- 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: 33" x 38" The 38" measurement is taken at the very front of the pad.
