Kentucky Horsewear Sheepskin Equalizer Half Pad
The NEW half pad impact equalizer absorbs all the shock waves dispersing them evenly throughout the pad. Not only does this relieve the concussion on the horses back, but it will also help to reduce fatigue on the back of the rider. Thanks to this, the Equalizer Half Pad is excellent for all disciplines, weather it is show jumping, dressage or eventing. The pad is also suitable for everyday training and riding, as it is continuously equalizes the pressure on your horse’s back.
By reducing the fatigue and stress on muscles in the back often caused by saddles, it will therefore take less time for the horse to recover and relax after exercise and riding. Of course this will benefit the horse whilst riding, as this will reduce pinching under the saddle. As a result your horse will move more freely, thanks to the comfort under the saddle. In the long term, this contributes to a flexible and mobile horse. Any shocks generated by the rider will also be absorbed too, this will stabilize the saddle and has ergonomic benefits for both rider and horse.
How it works
Made of Kentucky’s clever memory foam and 3D spacer the equalizer half pad uses a clever combination of materials to create a shock-absorbing pad. While the memory foam divides the pressure equally and constantly moulds to the shape of the horse. The 3D spacer honeycomb fabric ensures the back is ventilated, thanks to its air-permeable features. By using these materials, Kentucky Horsewear created a half pad that is 20 to 30% lighter than most other pads available on the market.
Not only is the pad lighter than others, but it will also make you feel closer to the horse and improve communication between you and your horse.
Kentucky Horsewear used a memory foam that is known for its use in the army and as protective gear. We developed a half pad that protects your horse the same way. The 3D spacer is a 3D honeycomb structure with a cushioning effect, which has shock-absorbing performances. The material is highly breathable and ensures that the horse’s back won’t heat up. This will diminish any irritations at the back of the horse.
The cut for the withers is made of artificial leather and offers comfort as the horse’s spine has less pressure. To ensure the position of the half pad while riding, the pad is provided with a silicone grip pattern. The half pad impact equalizer is finished off with artificial sheepskin at the wither and the back of the pad. This gives the half pad an elegant look.
