Kentucky Correction Half Pad
The Kentucky half pad correction is used to improve the fitting and balance of the saddle. This pad is perfect to use for younger horses or horses that change a lot in body shape because you can constantly correct the saddle position on the horse’s back. The half pad has a shock- absorbing function to filter all irregularities during riding. This causes a better riding experience for both horse and rider. Since the saddle is more fitting and the shocks are absorbed, the muscles of the horse will feel relieved and can move more freely. The rider
will experience a more stable saddle that has multiple ergonomic benefits.
Thanks to the 6 felt inserts you can completely adjust the half pad to the need of the horse’s back. This will make the saddle more fitting and benefits the horse’s back in the long term.
To absorb shocks, this pad does not only use felt layers but provides the pad with shock- absorbing memory foam and our 3D spacer material. The 3D spacer has a shock-absorbing gel to absorb all impact during riding. By using these outstanding materials, this correction pad is 20 to 30% lighter than most other pads available on the market. Not only is the pad lighter than others, but it will also improve communication between you and your horse with closer contact.
The correction pad has 3 pockets on each side filled with 3 felt layers of different thicknesses (2mm, 3mm and 4mm). The layers can be combined or used separately depending on the correction you need going from 2mm to 9mm. To minimize the pressure of the saddle and to maximize the shock absorption the half pad is included with a 10mm memory foam. This memory foam is known for its protection in the army and for extreme sports, this will ensure the best protection for your horse’s back. Thanks to the cushioning effect of the 3D spacer.
The correction pad is highly breathable and air permeable to avoid the horse’s back from heating up. The cut for the withers is made of artificial leather and offers comfort and minimal pressure for the horse. The pad is fitted with a silicone grip pattern so will stay in the correct position all day.
Remove the felt layers on the inside of the half pad. The half pad is now machine washable at 30 degrees. Let the half pad air dry afterward. For the best result we advise consulting a saddle fitter, osteopath or veterinary to adjust the shims to the correct thickness.
