Why We Love This

Keep your horse’s back supple and loose with the SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Ceramic All Purpose Saddle Pad. ThermoBalance® material on the underside of the pad has ceramic particles that 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 give the pad a luxe look. Designed with a curving anatomical shape, the pad mimics your horse’s topline to sit comfortably under your saddle.

Also available in Dressage 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

Favorite Features

  • Ideal for cold-backed, stiff, or performance horses
  • Combines style and comfort with black binding, grey piping, and subtle shine
  • ThermoBalance® fabric targets and soothes back muscles
  • Increased circulation quickens warm up and recovery
  • Ergonomic shape
  • Sturdy billet and girth straps
  • 100% Happiness Guarantee

Ingredient Amount
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

What Customers Say:
SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Ceramic All Purpose Saddle Pad is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems to help, just terrible to clean I bought this last year to help my senior’s back warm up in winter, and it seemed to help. My complaint is that the mesh fabric on the saddle side of the pad traps hair, winter coat or summer coat. Not a vacuum or scrub will help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it and so do I I bought the dressage version of this pad and my horse truly moved better with it. It just warms her back enough for it to feel nice and relaxing ( I know, I used it between my back and my chair, it’s wonderful) but somehow, even though temps are reaching into the low 80’s some days, she does not sweat in her back. She sweats other places but not her back. She is supple and happy. I love these pads. Still waiting for the eggplant colour for my pretty grey mare!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits my close contact saddle Good quality pad, seems to wash well and fits my close contact saddle. Soft to the touch and decent thickness. The straps were too short to go under my girth tabs but work on the D rings albeit more length than I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive and affective I love this pad, I use it for my jumper and it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect thickness! I bought this a month ago and I love the weight of it. I like to ride with a half pad and this works perfectly without too much bulk. It’s also shaped right and lays nicely over the back. It warms up the back nicely without being too much. I think it will work nicely in the summer as well. You need more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm A Believer! I recently purchased a 3 year old OTTB whose last race was about 12 weeks ago. Like most TB's coming off the track, he's had some body & back soreness as he adjusts to his new role. During our first ride in this pad I found him more willing to stretch and relax. Afterwards, I was delighted to press my hand down his back and find that he had no reaction to the pressure whatsoever, even in areas where he's typically tight and sore. I am definitely going to keep using - on top of it all, it's a beautiful, well built pad that seems to be effective at wicking sweat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really awesome saddle pad with great features! Got this a few months ago, really great saddle pad, it is also quite attractive and the features are simply awesome!
Date published: 2020-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work as well as back on track Bought this for my occasionally back sore eventer. He has a BoT dressage pad, but I wanted to add a jumping pad. This fits the bill, I like that its lower priced than the BoT pads, and that its not as thick and heavy as the BoT pads which are too hot in the summertime.
Date published: 2020-10-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Therapeutic Saddle Pad This is a very nice therapeutic pad that is well made and durable. It is generous in size and fits well under my 17.5" saddle with extra room for a bigger saddle. I have washed it twice now and it washes up just like new.
Date published: 2020-08-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product! Love this pad, functional and elegant! Very breathable even for the hotter weather. My boy loves his therapeutic pads and this is just as effective as the back on track products. Great job Smartpak! Please consider adding white and maybe some other colors!!
