Withers free gel pads relieve the withers and help to prevent problems by distributing weight evenly. The anti-slip, shock absorbing hexagonal gel pad on top has been combined with different fabrics, such as micropile with an inner 4 mm thick open cell foam, a 5 mm thick wool felt or memory foam.
Because of its hexagonal gel structure, air is compressed within the cells of the gel pad and expelled as the horse moves, creating a cushion under the saddle. Spine free gel pads are designed to fit your horse’s conformation and feature a unique two-piece design, eliminating spinal pressure and improving the saddle fit. As the withers and spine are kept free from pressure, they also allow agreater freedom of movement of the shoulders.
