Professionals Choice SMx Air Ride All-Around Saddle Pad
The Comfort-Fit SMx Air Ride Saddle Pad is contoured to follow the curve of the horse’s spine. As a result, the pad locks in place on the horses back, allowing full movement. Hand woven 100% wool Navajo blanket top. 100% merino wool lining helps wick away moisture and conforms to the horse’s back for maximum comfort.
The SMx Air Ride core absorbs shock and improves saddle fit for ultimate equine comfort. The Air Ride core is made of a unique material found in the protective gear of professional human athletes for absorbing shock while allowing air flow to the skin, creating a natural cooling system that lowers the horse’s body temperature and slows the rate of fatigue.
SMx Air Ride are specifically designed for strong-shouldered and prominent-withered horses and have a 1/2 inch breathable core, plus a second layer of padding in the dished out areas behind the shoulders and along the spine. This extra padding helps to achieve a better saddle fit and assists in the even distribution of pressure across the entire back, especially relieving pressure from the highly susceptible withers and kidney areas.
- Breathable: Allows air to circulate in all directions so the horse feels less heat and cools off faster.
