Why We Love This

Keep your horse’s back supple and loose with the SmartTherapy® Dressage Saddle Pad. Ceramic particles in the pad’s ThermoBalance® underside reflect body heat back as soothing far infrared rays, making it ideal for cold-backed or hard-working horses. These rays penetrate beneath the skin to activate blood flow, which may help decrease inflammation. The exterior mesh layer not only provides ventilation, but style, too. Hints of metallic thread in the top layer's quilted fabric add subtle shine, giving the pad a luxe look. In addition to the therapeutic benefits of cFIR technology, the pad’s curving anatomical shape mimics your horse’s topline for further comfort and freer movement under saddle.

Also available in AP and Western cuts!
 
Ceramic far infrared radiation (cFIR) technology:
  • Increases blood flow, promoting body’s natural healing process
  • May help decrease inflammation
  • Improves recovery
  • Protects from oxidative stress
Imported

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
Washing Instructions:
• Machine wash in cold to warm water
• Use mild detergent
• Hang to dry
• Do not use bleach or fabric softener
• Do not put in dryer

Instructions for first use:
• Because different horses take different lengths of time to get used to ceramic technology, introduce your horse to SmartTherapy™ ThermoBalance™ slowly
• Start with 1 to 3 hours per day for the first few days and observe your horse’s response
• After 4 or 5 days, if your horse seems acclimated, you may gradually increase the number of hours the product is worn each day if desired
• If your horse is accustomed to wearing gear unsupervised and it will be safe for them to do so, consider having your horse wear the product overnight to maximize SmartTherapy’s benefits

    SmartTherapy® Ceramic Dressage Saddle Pad is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pad for a cold back!! I bought this because everyone was sold out of the back on track pad in black. I was skeptical of another company since the BoT products work SO well, but because smartpak has THE best customer service, I knew it was safe to try. Omg, I am so glad I did! This pad works just like the BoT ones! I always use my fleece BoT blanket before a ride in the winter, and that combined with this pad has been so helpful for my horse. He isn’t arthritic or older, but he does have a weak stifle that can give him trouble. This combination quickly lowers our winter warm up time and makes us a more efficient team!! Plus the gray boarder is so pretty and looks good with all of our colored polo wraps :) The ONLY downside I would say is if you ride in a dusty arena, this holds the dust too well. I give it a good shake after riding but it still looks dusty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am loving the saddle pad!! I bought this saddle pad after learning that my 4 year old OTTB had a bit of a tight back, after having some bodywork done. I have learned how to keep his back looser but wanted to try a saddle pad to see if it could help transfer heat and keep his muscles relaxed. I have been using this pad for a month and he is moving freely and seems to be happier and using his body in a better, healthier way AND it is a pretty pad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from He likes it! My hyper sensitive guy loves his Back on Track "beanie" and I thought I'd try the Smartpak pad with similar qualities. He seemed to like it right away and he seemed to get softer in his back, though have only used it once so far. I wonder if it will prove too hot in summer. The trim is a bit thick on the edges.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve had this for a couple of months now and it has my horse loves his smart therapy dressage pad!! It has held up well and works like my back on track products. Wonderful perk is the pad stays put under the saddle and is much softer on the coat and less rubs appearing; especially this time of year when his coat is clipped!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate difference! I noticed a difference the very first time I used this saddle pad! My horse has a slight roach back that has been improving with chiropractor work, but I wanted to try to make her even more comfortable. I put the saddle pad on as soon as I finished brushing her so that it has time to "work" while I finished tacking up. The difference was astonishing! I could immediately tell she was much more relaxed and comfortable. It was the best ride I have had in the 2 years I have owned her. Not only did it make a huge difference for my horse, but it is less expensive than other brands and I have complete confidence in the quality of all products made by SmartPak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks and feels good Got it a few weeks ago and have been using it on me not the horse yet. Seems to be helping with sleeping and my back isn't as sore when I get up in the morning. Horses will have to wait a little longer :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is a nice quality pad, and I love the little shimmer it has to it that isn't really noticeable in pictures. I have many BoT products for my horse that I frequently use on myself, so I figured the best way to test this pad out was to lay it on my chair and see how it worked for my back, just as I frequently do with my horse's BoT products when he isn't using them. I could feel the same effect on the tight muscles in my back, just a bit less intense, and it didn't make me sweaty like BoT products can, which I found nice. I think the lesser intensity is a point in its favor, as my sensitive horse can only use his BoT products for an hour or two at a time, and perhaps with the SmartTherapy he could go longer. I rode in it the other day and I had the same response from my horse as he gives to his BoT pads, so he's certainly happy with it, which is really all that matters! I've recommended it to all my barn friends, as it is at a great price point as well.
