Toklat T3 Matrix SHIM Felt Pad


Toklat introduces you to the revolutionary T3 Matrix Shim Pad, built to adjust. Toklat's T3 Performance Pads are designed with the same Superior Impact Protection that NFL players wear to avoid dangerous and powerful hits. These pads can take a hit.

Engineered to be extremely light-weight and breathable, you don't have to worry about suffocating your horse in the heat of summer. A rugged non-slip military grade fabric topper locks the pad into position for whatever terrain lies ahead. Ergonomically shaped for maximum freedom of movement.

The Shim pad comes with three internal full-length pockets on either side of the spine, each pre-filled with two 1/4" customizable felt shims for a total of 12 shims. This pad is not intended to be used with all of the shims at one time.

KEY FEATURES

  • An all-in-one pad with Impact Protection inserts AND shims.
  • Full-length Impact Protection inserts that cushion, protect, and absorb up to 90% of the energy transferred between horse and rider.
  • Shims that allow the rider to adjust an imperfect saddle fit, or compensate for asymmetrical muscle development. Build up side to side or front to back, as needed.
  • This pad is not intended to be used with all of the shims at one time. If you find that you need all of the shims, you don't need a shim pad. Refer to the regular Matrix Pad

  • Shim pad comes with three internal full-length pockets on either side of the spine, each pre-filled with two 1/4" customizable felt shims for a total of 12 shims.

    Toklat Ortho-Impact Insert

    Dual Protection. Dynamic Performance.

    For general schooling and athletic performance. The ultra-light, contouring layer of high-density PoronŽ XRDtm provides superior protection by absorbing 90% of the impact. The 13mm layer of medium density viscoelastic foam offers superior musculoskeletal cushioning.

    Ortho is a great performance insert that can also help compensate for saddle fit and asymmetrical muscle development. Ortho-Impact protects the horse while minimizing the shock felt by the rider, offering back relief and a more secure seat.

    Ortho-Impact offers maximum cushioning protection without restricting the range of motion. Our inserts are treated with MicrobanŽ for antimicrobial protection.

    Great Pad for Saddle Fit Issues I have a Thoroughbred with the typical high narrow withers, but the rest of his back is more like that of a quarter horse. Fitting western saddles has been a challenge. I called Charlie Hueni and described my situation. He recommended I try the Toklat T3 Matrix shim pad.
    This well made pad with shims was easily adjustable to create an optimal fit of my saddle to the horse.
    During a 7 mile ride the saddle stayed off my horse's withers and he moved freely and gracefully. After the ride I found even sweat marks and no dry spots under the pad. I would highly recommend this pad. Special thanks to Charlie Hueni for his help.
    Pros:Quickly and easily adjustable shims. Great shock absorption and weight distribution.
    Cons:None
