  12. Acavallo Shaped Gel Pad

    RRP £47.50

    From: £45.12

    This Shaped therapeutic anti slip gel pad is made thicker than the light weight pad - giving it a dual pupose both anti-slip and shock absorbing. It can be used directly onto the skin or between a numnah and the saddle. This special gel is non-toxic hyperallergenic and will not react adversley to the skin. It will stop any unwanted movement of the saddle both back & forth and side to side. A real asset if saddles rotate on the 'rounder' horses & ponies!

    These pads are shaped and moulded to the saddle with a slightly thinner depth of gel running down the centre of the pad allowing the gel to sit up in the gullet rather than pushing down on the wither and spine.This gel can also be cut to the size of the saddle if needed. Show riders often cut it to half inch inside the profile of the saddle to appear as if there is nothing under the saddle  - when in fact there is a very nice shock absorbing non-slip layer!

    The active soft gel can be machine washed (30 degrees) or by hand in a bucket of water with a little detergent.

  15. Acavallo Gel Front Riser

    RRP £54.95

    From: £52.20

    These Acavallo gel risers are the most advanced design on the market. The highly shock absorbent therapeutic gel from Italy are anatomically designed to fit the horse's back & saddle and relieve pressure.

    The ‘Front Riser’ is particularly suited to horses with high withers or that have lost muscle and bulk at the top of the shoulder and below the wither. The pad has minimal depth over the centre so doesn’t increase pressure under the pommel. However, its unique honeycomb structure ensures the the main weight bearing areas are compensated. Traditional ‘wedge style’ risers that taper to the back of the saddle often pivot on the wither & spine increasing pressure under the front of the saddle as well as causing an unwanted 'rise' in the whole saddle.

    The ‘Rear Riser’ has the same honeycomb structure to absorb and softly distribute the riders weight. It can be adjusted back & forward for effect. They can also be used together as an additional layer of absorbtion under the saddle.

    The tacky nature of these pads ensure minimal movement either laterally or back to front so they are in effect Non-Slip pads as well. They can be used in conjunction with the the Acavallo Shaped Gel Pads or can be placed on top of any numnah, half pad or sq
    uare. Easily washed in a bucket and almost indestructible!

Half Pads, Risers and Gel Pads

When it comes to saddle pads there are many different types to consider, on this page you will find a number of different types which are not as commonly used, but still extremely good.

Gel pads for horses are a fairly popular item, the gel pad stops the saddle from moving side to side or up or down the horse's back. They can be used directly on the horse's back or can be used under the saddle to create a soft cushion that helps in absorbing impact. The gel pads we offer come from a number of great brands, buying a Shires, Norton or Acavallo gel pad has never been easier.

Half pads are used for additional padding under the saddle, often made from a sheepskin or other softer material. Sheepskin half pads have become increasing popular within the equestrian community over the last year or so. Our selection includes some of the biggest equestrian names, so you know when you buy a Cottage Craft or Le Mieux half pad, you are getting the very best.

Riser pads are special pads in which the rear side is raised higher up than the front side. This is the case as they are primarily used under saddles which do not fit perfectly on the back of the horse. If you think your saddle isn't a great fit for your horse and getting a new saddle isn't really an option at the moment you may want to consider a riser pad.
