      Comments about Impact Gel Equine Impact Gel™ Standard 3/4" Contour Pad:

      I was searching for a contoured fit pad and saw this which had the gel cushioning and thought this would be helpful for my older mare. She seems very comfortable with it and it looks very nice.

        Comments about Impact Gel Equine Impact Gel™ Standard 3/4" Contour Pad:

        I was skeptical about this pad as I was afraid it would be heavy on the horses back and I have a very sensitive mare. It is not and I was much more comfortable on our long ride. My mare seemed like she was moving freer and was more supple...was this because of the pad? I think so as I have ridden in it several times and had the same result! A must have for work/training or a long trail ride. It is a bit pricey but in the long run well worth it!

          Comments about Impact Gel Equine Impact Gel™ Standard 3/4" Contour Pad:

          I was looking for the perfect pad to start riding my rather broad backed horse. I tried my 1" felt pads, simple blankets, an expensive carpet pad, and several more. All of them either made the saddle fit poorly or they shifted. And I hated the stiff pads.

          I was really pleased when this pad arrived. It was the first soft pad I'd found and it settle right into my horse's back. The saddle doesn't shift and my guy has been comfortable. And when I pull the pad up into the gullet it stays. A bonus was that I tried the pad with my saddle on a couple of other horses of very different builds and the saddle worked out.

          I also ride hunter/jumpers/event horse and wish Impact Gel made an English pad. I'd buy it in a minute.

          When I need another western pad, Impact gel will be my first choice.

            Comments about Impact Gel Equine Impact Gel™ Standard 3/4" Contour Pad:

            I bought this pad for my 21 year old mare to give her more comfort for our trail rides. I was noticing some hair loss on one spot on her back with my previous wool saddle pad. I am hoping the comfort gel will help to alleviate this issue, and so far the hair seems to be growing back. I feel like she is more comfortable in this pad and I feel better knowing she has the gel support.

              • Q:

                For my mare I use a 1" wedge at the moment but I need a spine relief as well. so I'm wondering will this pad fill both my needs?

                  A:

                  With the added impact gel over the core parts of this pad, it should be sufficient. This does have the contour back and raised wither to take pressure off the spine.

                  A:

                  This will depend on use and care of the pad. However, these are durable enough for a heavy workload for an extended period of time.
