The Acavallo withers shaped spine free close contact 3D spacer Classic Gel pad with memory foam, combines the non-slip and shock-proof properties of the classic Gel Acavallo models with the shock-absorbing properties of the memory foam with the 3D Spacer fabric, a high-tech material designed to absorb stresses in a uniform way allowing maximum air flow.
Relevant in this pad is also the tapered shape that guarantees a deep contact of the pad to the horse’s back and that combines the technical features of whiters free to those spine free thus making it perfectly suitable for any horse conformation allowing greater freedom of movement in the shoulders ensuring less spinal pressure.
A great strength og the Gel is to avoid any unwanted movement of the saddle in any direction: forward, back and sideways.
Furthermore, the Gel is able to compensate for the small imperfections of the horse’s back, making it suitable also for the backs that are a bit more “rounded”.
The anatomic cut of the pad and the technical characteristics of the memory foam allows the pad to adapt and shape itself deeply to the silhouette of the horse, also allowing the surface pressure to be distributed over a large area.
To these features are added the ability to absorb shocks, dampen vibrations and regulate the horse’s body temperature.
The Acavallo® Classic Gel is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and does not react negatively in contact with the skin, characteristics that allow the pad to be used directly in contact with it.
Acavallo® Gel Features
– Shock absorbing
– Stabilize the saddle
– Relieve pressure

Acavallo® Memory Foam features:
– Absorb shocks
– Rubbing and friction are eliminated
– Get very thin where there are already points of pressure and no need volume
– Disperses pressure evenly
Info & care:

The special shape and composition of these pads relieve the sensitive withers area and help to prevent problems by distributing weight evenly, improving the saddle fit. Memory foam absorbs shock, eliminates rubbing and friction and perfectly adapts to the individual contours of the horse’s body.
New fabric used : 3D spacer fabric
Spacer fabric is a highly technical material designed to distribute weight, allow maximum air flow which benefits the skin and provides a healthy skin and muscle tone supporting blood circulation. It is also designed to disperse shear and direct pressure, ideal for sensitive and cold backed horses.
*prevent heat build-up
*allows consistent air circulation
*provides faster sweat absorption and efficient evaporation
The fabric is easy to clean under running water and can be reused immediately because of its ability to dry fast, with only a shakeout required! If machine washing is needed, it can be done at low temperatures with a mild soap.
