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 inserts have been designed using the T3 principles of ergonomic design and advanced technology. The Matrix Pro-Impact Half Pad Inserts are for athletic performance and intense schooling. The ultra-light, ultrathin layer of high density Poron® XRDtm provides superior concussion protection by absorbing 90% of the shock from impact. Perforated for breathability and treated with Microban® for antimicrobial protection.
Poron® XRDtm is high performance open-cell foam that absorbs most of the energy not only from the impact of saddle on horse’s back, but also from the rider on the saddle. Poron® XRDtm protects the horse from impact and it minimizes the energy bounce back that a rider experiences when landing in the saddle, allowing for a more secure seat.
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.
