THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INTERFACE

It is important to understand that a Horse standing still has a completely different configuration compared to when the back is lifted in motion. From the moment the first step is taken, a Horse´s body becomes a totally new set of shapes: The vertical lift between wither and croup can be as much as 5 inches / 10 centimeters. There are bulges/expansions/contractions that need to be considered, too. All of this must be accommodated when asking this sensitive animal to carry us. Even a well exercised and well muscled horse has a naturally downward curve in his back when standing still. Also, relaxed posture results in a less voluminous body than one in motion because engaging muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia requires expansion to create MOVEMENT.









A HORSE´S TOP LINE PROFILE AT STAND-STILL COMPARED TO WHEN HIS BODY IS MOVING DISPLAYS A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE


A SADDLE SYSTEM DESIGNED SO YOUR HORSE CAN MOVE AS NATURE INTENDED

15 years of extensive worldwide research and product development has resulted in the SmartSaddlePad™ Collection. The AIRPAD™ and the SMARTPAD™ are technologically superior tools designed to increase the efficiency and comfort of the connection between your saddle and your Horse´s back. Best value in combination with SMARTFLEX™ Saddle Trees.

INTERFACE MANAGEMENT FOR INDIVIDUAL, DYNAMIC CUSTOM FIT



Sort By:
1
NEW: 1/2 TF SHOULDER SHIMS


Designed
to lift front of the saddle off a broad-shouldered and well muscled Horse's working shoulders. The ½ TF FOAM SHIMS help to
keep excess weight off the horse's forehand, essential for healthy travel.

Our Price: $25.00
ORIGINAL TF CENTER SHIMS


The
ORIGINAL TF CENTER SHIMS support the long back muscle if that muscle is weak, flat, damaged or sagging in the center area of the horse's back. It connects the saddle with the horse's body so that "bridging" of the saddle (contact pressure at the front and back of the horse's body without connection in the lower center area) is not excessive. Quite often, the CENTER SHIMS are used in combination with the SHOULDER SHIM.

Our Price: $25.00
ORIGINAL TF REAR SHIMS


Once you feel how much better your horse can travel under you when you tuck just one of our
TAPERED FOAM SHIMS into each side of your saddle pad, you'll know why we recommend never riding without them! The shape and consistency of our soft-but-resilient closed cell FOAM SHIMS has proven to facilitate the re-development of damaged muscle as well as the efficient use of healthy tissue.

Our Price: $25.00
