This is a fantastic gel pad that offers therapeutic shock absorption with added security of the non-slip properties of the gel on both sides.
The non-slip properties allow the saddle to adhere to the top and bottom side to the numnah/square or the horses back if used on its own.
It will stop any unwanted movement of the saddle both back & forth and side to side. A real asset if saddles rotate on the 'rounder' horses & ponies. The saddle is then cradled in a luxurious sheepskin on the front & back of the pad.
The Acavallo sheepskin is a natural material.
It doessn't cause allergies. The pad is very soft and delicate, and perfectly suited to prevent abrasions and blisters. It is shaped and molded to the saddle with a slightly thinner depth of gel running down the center of the pad allowing the gel to sit up in the gullet rather than pushing down on the wither and spine.
World’s number one champions, Charlotte Dujardin and Scott Brash uses Acavallo Gel Pad Sheepskin.
This gel encourages freedom of movement for the horse, stabilizes the saddle on the horse, relieves pressure from the horse and absorbs and distributes weight.
The gel is of course non toxic and safe for use on the skin of your horse.
It is easy to wash and 100 % natural.
The gel is dense and soft. It absorbs shocks and breathes naturally, wicking away moisture.
