CoolBack™ Ergonomic Half Pad

The Matrix Half Pad has an ergonomic design that complements the horse’s muscle structure rather than interfering with it. Traditional half pads follow the contour of the saddle which creates a pressure point under the rider’s thigh. The elongated front of a Matrix half pad covers the muscle without bisecting it, improving the shoulder’s overall range of motion.
CoolBack™ fleece is an orthopedic fleece engineered to replace sheepskin in the medical industry. The resilient 1” pile never mats down or clumps even after hard use and frequent washing, providing superior pressure relief every time it’s used. Most importantly, CoolBack™ releases heat more efficiently than sheepskin or wool which allows moisture to evaporate rapidly. CoolBack pads dry quickly so less time is wasted between rides. Machine washable and dryer safe.
The quilted top fabric is ETC©, a breathable anti-friction non-slip fabric that keeps the saddle in place.

Matrix Ortho-Impact Inserts are most suitable for general riding and training. Choose Ortho-Impact if your horse has uneven or asymmetrical muscle development or a saddle that does not fit perfectly. Ortho-Impact has a 5mm layer of ultra-thin, ultra-light Poron XRD™ bonded to 12mm layer of medium density viscoelastic foam, providing the impact protection of the Pro-Impact with the additional stabilizing support of the viscoelastic foam. Poron XRD© is a high density open cell foam that absorbs 90% of the energy from impact. It protects the horse's back muscles from the impact of the rider and saddle as well as minimizing the energy bounce back that the rider experiences when landing in the saddle. The energy absorption is superior to heavier and thicker foams and gels. The 12mm viscoelastic foam naturally fills in deficits and allows the saddle to settle and stabilize for maximum cushioning without restricting range of motion. Rinse with warm water to clean, line dry.
