    What is XT Lite?

    Our XT Lite Gel has a system of perforations throughout the gel insert, creating a lighter, breathable and cooler pad.  This close-contact design is crafted for maximum fit.  This two-piece technology consists of a contour cut over the spine, cutout at the withers and under the rigging for a perfect fit.  The internal base layer system creates a non-slip, close contact technology designed to lock down your saddle and protect your horse under the most extreme conditions, allowing extended riding.

    Nice pad

    Super comfy for my old guy


    Treated my 19yo to a new saddle pad and chose this Impact. Best choice ever!! Have never owned one before and will def invest in another when this one goes. Not only can I tell he is more comfortable but it is actually makes my ride feel better as well. Very impressed!

    Impact Gel Pad


    Since using the Impact Gel Pad I have noticed my mare is happier, especially at the lope. She is a 16 year old Arab, and an easy keeper, so it is hard to keep the weight off her. Due to weather conditions, I have only been able to use it a few times, but I can tell the difference in her attitude. I purchased the 1/2" and use a single layer show pad on the top; it works fine.

    Expect the best


    Impact Gel puts out a very fine product,that will stand up to daily, rigorous rides. I noticed a change in my horses attitude right away, and when there on I'm on. You really need to try this pad...

    To Change It Up


    I love the color of sage green to show in and there is only one contoured pad with that color in it so I bought this under pad to layer other show blankets over so I can change it up a bit.

    Will this work with a close contact English saddle?


    You could use it for impact protection under your saddle.


    How is this pad different from the close contact pad by Impact Gel?


    The Underlayment pad has an open spine and and the Contour pad has a leather spine.


    I just received this pad, does it have to have a show pad over it or can you place the saddle directly on the pad?


    You can use it with or without a show pad over top.

    I have a quarter/Arab gelding with big muscles, high withers, and flat back or mutton back would this be a good fit du to saddles rolling off?


    A neoprene bottom that has grip to it will help keep the saddle from rolling. We recommend the Wonpad #25000 or #07988.
