As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).
The Matrix Lo-Impact Half Pad Inserts are great for general riding and schooling, low impact training; especially beneficial for horses that are in a conditioning program. Also recommended for horses with back issues. This low density viscoelastic (VE) foam mimics the density of muscle tissue, offering a wide supportive base without restricting or inhibiting muscle movement. Allows for expansion of soft tissue required to condition and build muscle, therefore creating an environment for optimal muscle conditioning.
Because of its thickness, Lo-Impact does not dissipate heat as rapidly as the Pro-Impact; its use is confined to low impact riding where its cushioning properties are most important.
This insert would work great with any of the following Matrix Half Pads; Matrix Ergonomic Half Pad - Dressage, Matrix Ergonomic Half Pad - AP Matrix, Traditional Half Pad - Dressage, Matrix Traditional Half Pad - AP.
