Unbeatable combination of non-slip gel, soft impact & absorbing memory foam in a luxurious suede outer, enriched with 100% sheepskin edge. The gel will stop any unwanted movement of the saddle both back & forth and side to side. And memory foam gets very thin at existing points of pressure where there’s no need for extra volume. Thanks to gel and memory foam properties this pad supports a calm position, prevent slipping, it’s very shock-absorbing and helps to distributes the pressure evenly on the horse´s back. The “close contact” shape is designed to be less visible under the saddle than the standard memory foam half pad. The saddle is then cradled in a luxurious lambskin front & back rolled edge for the ultimate in ‘good-looks’. The Acavallo® sheepskin is a natural material. It does not cause allergies, is very soft and delicate, and perfectly suited to prevent chafing, abrasions and blisters. The anatomic cut with spine-clearance allowing the pad to perfectly sit up in the gullet. Designed to fit under any style and size of English saddles, it’s ideal to combine with a plain square.
