Pressure Relief

T3 Saddle Pads use high quality fleece designed specifically for the rigors of equestrian use to maximize Pressure Relief and achieve thermal balance.

Compared to the horse’s flexible back muscles, the saddle is a relatively rigid and unforgiving surface that applies pressure to the muscles, often unevenly or at concentrated points.

Pressure inhibits the ability of the muscle to flex properly and therefore to expand and build. The purpose of a saddle pad is to provide some padding between the saddle and the back so that the pressure is moderated and more evenly distributed. Fleece performs two important functions regarding pressure: it creates a cushioning surface that relieves and distributes pressure, allowing the muscles to flex; secondly, it allows air to circulate freely among the fibers, facilitating heat release.

COOLBACK®

100% orthopedic polyester fleece for rapid heat release and pressure relief.

  • Its breathability achieves thermal balance by allowing air to circulate freely between the saddle pad and the horse’s back, releasing heat rapidly and efficiently.
  • The 1" resilient pile provides the ideal thickness and density for pressure relief and comfort.
  • Excellent recovery over long-term use and multiple washes for exceptional performance every time you sit in the saddle.

WOOLBACK®

100% Virgin Wool for superior moisture management and pressure relief.

  • Wool naturally absorbs up to 28% of its own weight in moisture and rapidly evaporates it away.
  • Its breathability achieves thermal balance by allowing air to circulate freely between the saddle pad and the horse’s back, efficiently releasing heat.
  • 1" resilient pile provides the ideal thickness and density for pressure relief and comfort.
  • Excellent recovery over long-term use and multiple washes for exceptional performance every time you sit in the saddle.

SHEEPSKIN

100% Australian sheepskin

  • Meets the stringent testing and specifications to carry the AWI Woolmark, deemed safe enough for the medical industry and for use in infant care products.
  • Tanned in New Zealand using an eco-friendly, environmentally-safe process that eliminates toxic or harmful chemicals.
  • 1" pile provides the best pressure relief with the closest contact possible in a natural hide.
  • Its superior breathability maintains thermal balance by allowing air to pass through the hollow fur fibers.
