What does this mean for our ponies? Sure, there are horse healthcare monitoring, track and work-out applications to track your progression, and a lot of new technology advances that come onto the markets every single working day. What about a saddle and shells? I had to ask because the saddle and half-shell are my passions.
When researching my latest article about half-pad ( "To Shim or Not To Shim and Win combi nations #betterforbacks"), I came across two saddle pad that excelled through their excellent technique, the advantages for back problems horse (both half-pads referred to advantages for dorsal problems such as kiss spinal problems during my research) and appropriate pricing points (between $200 - $300, which I would now consider the norm for a high value half-pad).
As I mentioned both saddle cushions in the item entitled wining combinations, I felt that these two cushions needed a little more attention to really do them justice. 2. Let's begin with the Kingsland Relief Pad. They were so kind to explain the saddlecloth and how it works and I was lucky enough to see the Kingsland Ecuestrian squad at the AETA last August.
Firstly, the most peculiar thing about this saddle pad is in my view that it comes in different thicknesses for different cushioning characteristics without altering the saddle pad size. This means that if you need one weight for training and another weight for show jumps (any eventing riders out there?), the pad will not vary in size, so you don't have to be worried about your horse's mass and capacity to sense your help through the saddle.

This saddle pad comes in a nice case with a table on the back to help you decide which saddle pad is right for you, depending on your body size and the type of riding you do. So you can choose the right saddle pad to suit your needs - more for skipping, less for flat work.
This means that you need less cushioning for training than for off-road riding and the saddle pad is manufactured accordingly so that you always have the right amount of pad + feeling for your tube to comprehend your tools. This saddle pad is made of an anti-microbial fabric that comes out of the fabric and can easily be sprayed and air-dried to keep it intact.
The upholstery is even chillier with a breathing net to give your horses a lot of space in the oesophagus above the backbone, and the padding has some great non-slip, handy contours on top, so that your pad will stay in place no matter what terrains.

This pad was test in the ring on my OTTB Sky, which is highly wilted, with lower scapulae that leave some room between his back and esophagus. As he needed it, I could even glue a washer between the saddle and the half-shell and it remained in place due to the non-slip handlebars.
He still has something to grow and fill, since he only recently began under the saddle, and with the tracks of up to 20 leagues over precipitous, rugged ground in warm, damp weathers, it was a must to protect his back while at the same time providing a breatheable walk. Kingsland Relief Pad passed the test and was a champion for both of them!
Very recommendable for all horses that need the pillow and have a little space between the acromion and the saddle trough, or for horses where the saddle is only one slipper. YouTube' s full length movie reviews all the advantages of the Kingsland Relief Pad and I can confirm in person that all his statements are real in the ring, on the hunting ground and on the path!
SedeLogic' S-Curve Half Pad was one of the most amazing saddle cushions I have ever tried. Technically, the most progressive part of this saddle pad is to use a hairdryer to warm the thermoplastic backs, and once they are smooth and supple, place the saddle pad on the saddle pad and attach it to the saddle pad.
They are then sitting in the saddle for a few moments and then walking away for a few moments so that the sculpture can cools down and adapt to the horse's back. We' ve gone through this with Max, my 7-year-old Oldenburg foal, because he has very broad collars and reacts sensitively to shock but also learns to leap more consequently, which can sometimes lead to the horseman being pushed around or being caught in the back if he is clumsy.
First thing I realized about this pad was that I didn't really felt different in the saddle, despite the thermoplastics in it. It felt stiff, but it still had room for maneuver while it protected my horse's back, and I could still sense his motion, and he could still sense my tool.
The system provided cushioning and cushioning without altering the driving experience. Thermoplast is breatheable and also suitable for dorsal problems. Next I also realized that the pad's uniquely s-shaped contours on the front of the pad fitted well around his shoulder, and the relief circuit also greatly relieved his front, as he is in a comfortable, well-fitting saddle and his broader shoulder doesn't really allow room for extra upholstery.
On my camera I had a chance and tried to take some pictures of his movements while heaving (I apologize for the undrawn, covered ring, it was a mad summer!). Last ly, for the SedeLogic S-Curve Half Pad, the thermoplastics can be heated up again and set up for different types of horse.
In this way, if your saddle changes form, or you get a new saddle or have a new saddle to use half the pad, all you need to do is warm up the back of the pad and then adjust it to the new saddle / to the new riding position and the fitting will change completely.
Truly decent tech and definitely something I can see promoting ponies with back issues. Sure. All in all, the S-curve fitted him like a glove, but when I tried to change the pods and put them on Sky and Kingsland on Max, it was no Buenos. They both wanted their own saddle padding back.... It was obvious to Sky that the contours of the S-curve did not meet the right place on his left side because of his higher wither and the Kingsland was just a shadow too narrow on Max's toes.
There is a half of a puppy's time. But in all earnestness every single equine is different, and sometimes it is a question of trying out what works best for each single equine and saddle combo. I hope this set of items has contributed to helping those individuals to find the kinds of pods that are best for their ponies on the basis of the various tests I have done, and all the sceneries that I have these half-pads, ponies, and even my pals through!
The next step is how the saddle straps influence the fitting.
