SMx Air Ride Saddle Pads
- Breathable – Patented SMx Air Ride core allows air to circulate, resulting in accelerated heat and moisture evaporation so the horse feels less heat and cools off faster and maintains a cooler, more comfortable body temperature.
- Heavy-duty Core – Protects the horse's back from demanding types of riding.
- Shock Absorbent – Advanced technology deflects negative energy throughout the pad and away from the horse.
- Distributes Pressure – Unique SMx Air Ride core evenly distributes weight from saddle and rider and prevents pressure points from forming, giving an even, comfortable ride.
- Compression Resistant – Scientific testing under extremely hard use has proven it maintains its original thickness, resiliency and performance.
- Lightweight and Flexible – Designed to keep pressure off the spine and allow additional airflow along the horse's back.
