With a gel pad for your horse, you can compensate for a saddle that doesn't fit properly, to a certain extent. The gel layer of the pad lying between your saddle and the horse's back, adapts to both, fills gaps or reduces pressure points.
There are different types of saddle pads with gel, depending on whether the saddle is to be raised at the back, in the middle or at the front. You choose the gel pad to balance the saddle, depending on how it lies and where the rider's centre of gravity is shifted:
In order to provide further protection in addition to the pressure distribution and the raising properties, there are gel pads with a sheepskin trim. The sheepskin provides additional protection and comfort for your horse at the withers and behind the pommel. Pads are available from Horze and other well-known brands such as Acavallo or Karlslund.
