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 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dressage pad! I wasn’t looking for a particular type of pad, just a nice one when I found this one. After reading the reviews I decided to try it. I would not have truly believed the difference in my horse’s movement and willingness if I hadn’t seen (ridden) it for myself! She was much more fluid and forward and generally happier! Bravo Smartpak! I am going to order one for my jump saddle as well! ( please make in an eggplant colour!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Pad My mare loves this saddle pad, and so do I! She tends to be a bit cold backed and sensitive (think "the princess and the pea"), and she's never shy about letting me know how she feels. Having a pad that helps her to stay loose and comfortable through her back is very important to me, and this one checks all of the boxes. The fit of this pad is perfect for my mare as well as my saddle, which is a 17.5". It pulls up easily into the gullet to allow for wither clearance and doesn't shift or bunch at all during my rides. I love that this material is highly breathable and lightweight, which sets it apart from other ceramic saddle pads. I can use this one year-round without worrying about too much heat buildup. This pad is easy to keep clean and can be machine washed on cold - however it should NOT go in the dryer as it can damage the fabric. I use a gentle detergent and hang to dry. This pad is perfect for anyone looking to support their horse's back health and help keep their muscles limber and performing their best. Whether your horse is a top competition horse or a beloved pleasure princess like mine, they deserve the comfort of this saddle pad!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it! Tried this and now I don't want to use any of the other pads that I have in my collection. My horse goes so much better using this pad. It is amazing. He is so much more "together" and forward.

    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 :)
