Ergonomic Design

T3 Saddle Pads are designed to work with your horse's musculoskeletal system for improved comfort and performance.

Matrix T3 Saddle Pads use a unique ergonomic design to improve range of motion and overall movement. Half pads traditionally used for corrective or therapeutic reasons closely follow the contour of the saddle. Unfortunately, this design creates a pressure point under the rider’s leg that interferes with the muscle group critical to the function of the shoulder and neck and overall locomotion. The Matrix T3 Ergonomic Half Pad is designed to work with the horse; its elongated front follows the trapezius muscle, cushioning critical muscle groups without hindering their function. This ergonomic design is maintained in the Competition Pads, Shaped Pads and Endurance Pads.
