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 Ortho-Impact Half Pad Inserts is for general riding and schooling, especially beneficial for stabilizing the saddle and compensating for horse conformation problems and for riders who need back support. A layer of ultra-light high density Poron® XRDtm minimizes concussion, while medium density viscoelastic (VE) foam offers stabilizing support for both saddle and rider.

Poron® XRDtm with Microban® is high performance open-cell foam that absorbs 90% of the energy from the impact from the saddle on the horse’s back as well as minimizing the energy bounce back that a rider experiences landing in the saddle, allowing for a more secure seat. VE foam offers maximum cushioning protection without restricting range of motion.

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 - DressageMatrix Traditional Half Pad - AP.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
